Dentro de la gimnasia artística hay una figura que los expertos llaman 'El Cristo'. No es una falta de respeto a nadie, es una figura que los gimnastas hacen y que asemeja a Jesús en la cruz.

Este lunes, la competencia en esta disciplina se la llevó un latino, el brasileño Arthur Nabarrete Zanetti, quien sorprendió a todos al llevarse el oro en los anillos de la gimnasia artística por una décima (15.900) y bajar del trono al campeón de Beijing 2008, Chen Yibing (15.800). Italia logró el bronce gracias al trabajo de Morandi Matteo (15.733).

Por ellos nos atrevimos a retomar algunas imágenes y los rostros de sus protagonistas en esta selección para que ustedes admiren las ejecuciones de estos deportistas olímpicos.
