Gymnastics Association Uchimura was not chosen as a "personal general super final" September 6th 23:34
Regarding the Olympics gymnastics, Kohei Uchimura, who has won two consecutive personal totals, the Japan Gymnastics Association is one of the tournaments that will lead to the selection of representatives for the Tokyo Olympics, and will not be selected as a member of the "Individual General Super Final" in November. I decided.
The “Individual Comprehensive Super Final” held in Takasaki City, Gunma Prefecture in November, will be contested by the top 12 players from the NHK Cup held in May and players recommended by the Japan Gymnastics Association.
This tournament will also be held as a representative for the World Cup for individuals. In the World Cup, 4 tournaments were held in the US and Japan by April next year, and the top players out of the 3rd place in the 3rd place by placing the scores of these 4 tournaments are decided as representatives of the Tokyo Olympics. To do.
Uchimura was not able to participate in the NHK Cup due to the pain of his shoulders.
As a result of discussions so far, the Japan Gymnastics Association has decided to recommend Takezo Kitazono, a second-year high school student who scored a high score in the national high school overall last month. Since the score did not increase due to the lack of vivid performance at the All Japan Senior Championship, we decided not to make a recommendation and not to be a member.
Uchimura was out of the representative of the world championship held next month and was making adjustments aiming for an individual-wide World Cup appearance.
