Olympics 2012: Leyva Blossoms, Orozco Wilts Under Pressure in Men's Gymnastics

At the end of today, it is safe to say that thus far the London Olympics' Men's Gymnastics events could give M. Night Shyamalan a lesson in creating effective twist endings. First, hometown hero Great Britain finishes second in Saturday's qualifiers. Then Team USA rises above the field to look like clear contenders for the team gold on Monday, but instead suffer disaster after disaster to finish a disappointing fifth. To add some extra drama, Japan's Kohei Uchimura falls off the pommel horse, almost acing his team out of a medal until the judges recalculate a scoring mistake for the save.
