Horton Seeks to Stylize Routines
(1 vote, average 1.00 out of 5)
World all-around bronze medalist Jonathan Horton said his big goal is to clean up his gymnastics and add more style to his sets. The 2008 Olympic high bar silver medalist said that with his difficulty, he should have a lot more international medals by now. "I have to sit back and try to figure out why, if my routines are harder, I'm not winning everything," he said. "A lot of it has to do with my style - I've got to clean up my lines. Comparing myself to other guys, you know especially like Kohei Uchimura and Philipp Boy." Click here to read more on Universal Sports.

He's just now noticing he needs cleaner gymnastics? I'm not quite sure why he thinks he has the most difficulty. He has good high bar and decent rings but not really that much more difficulty on the other events. Still, at least he finally recognizes the sport is artistic gymnastics. Pointing your feet is a good start! Good luck!

Can someone please tell me why the American men are so full of themselves? Maybe if he had not received such inflated scores at the USA championships and American Cup he would not be confused on why he is not beating Uchimura and Philipp Boy? Are you kidding me? Let's not forget John Roethlisberger's foolish quote about how he was "not on board with this Boy thing" and that Horton should definitely beat him. Obviously HE doesn't understand gymnastics is supposed to be artistic and beautiful either.
