These guys are tough competitors. So, it was really nice to see a show of sportsmanship and goodwill during the Men’s Indidvidual All Around competition.

Gymnasts were competing on their own without their team mates to cheer them on. Each took their turn at the apparatus. Then something odd happened. The other gymnasts cheered for them. When they finished their turn and bounded down the steps to the chairs, the other participants and coaches from every country patted them on the back and shook their hand in encouragement.

It’s refreshing to me to see such comraderie at such a high level of competition. It was nice to see.
