high bar final

Kurt celebrating winning gold in the Parallel Bars and High Bar event finals on the last day of gymnastics at the Olympics with his best friends.  Poor blueberry cinnamon roll, too exhausted from weeks of intense training and competing, too tired.

I feel so bad for putting Piotr in the back, but he’s just so huge and I needed to find a way to have all of them close to Kurt and I didn’t want him blocking the others from view.  I’m not very good at drawing group pictures.

“I knew it was up to the final high bar. I was finally able to do my best on the high bar and even if I were to lose, I had no regrets. I’m exhausted. I gave everything. I gave out more than I had so I’m more than happy, I feel joy. I was able to win the best medal with my best performance. I think I’m the luckiest man alive.” –Kohei Uchimura, after the 2016 Olympic AA Final
