There were tons of gasps at the North Greenwich Arena for Flying Dutchman Epke Zonderland, on the men’s horizontal bar. Dude earned the first ever gold medal for the Netherlands in this category and it’s not hard to see why with this routine. Zonderland pulled off three electrifying back-to-back release maneuvers, which if you don’t already know it, is like OMG good. He earned an astonishing 16.533 points.
“I dreamed about it for so long. This routine was a lot of risk,” Zonderland told reporters. “I still can’t believe it. It’s unique to be in a Olympic final if you’re a Dutch gymnast, but winning the gold is bizarre.”
Check out his cray routine below.
