posted on November 1, 2015

Japan's Olympic champion Kohei Uchimura extended his record of consecutive men's gymnastics all-around titles to six at the world championships in Glasgow on Friday.

Uchimura, who won with 92.332 points, also booked a place in next year's Rio de Janeiro Olympics.

"Honestly, I can't quite believe it. I just focused on keeping my concentration for all six apparatus," said the 26-year-old. "I knew that if I could maintain my concentration, I could go all the way without a single mistake."
