In gymnastics, it appeared that Japan was not going to medal in the men’s team event after Kohei Uchimura fell on the pommel horse. The Japanese originally finished in fourth place, but the coaching staff filed an official protest and won. There hasn’t been an official reason for the protest, but CTV’s Kyle Shewfelt did state he believed the Japanese were wanting Uchimura’s degree of difficulty reviewed.
With Japan winning the protest, they moved from fourth to second and bounced the Ukraine off the podium. China won Gold, and for the first time since 1928, Great Britain won a medal in a team gymnastics competition, finishing third.
