Zou Kai gave his performances in London a positive evaluation after falling just short in his quest to become the first Chinese sportsperson to win six Olympic gold medals.
The gymnast claimed his fifth gold by retaining his men’s floor title, having earlier helped China to glory in the men’s team final, but had to make do with a bronze medal in high bar final.
Although he failed to add another gold medal to his collection, Zou said he was pleased by his overall display. “Every competition feels the same, but I felt a lot less of a burden about getting gold,” said Zou. “I’m very satisfied with these results. I’ve won two golds and one bronze medal. I can’t win them all.”
