China's Zou Kai Wins Men's Floor Exercise Gold

Zou Kai had a repeat victory in the floor exercise on Sunday, after getting one of his three golds in Beijing four years ago in the event.

Zou earned gold with the Chinese men's team earlier in the 2012 Olympics, but made his name in 2008 by winning golds in the floor and high bar in addition to a team win. He was able to impress individually again in the floor exercise, attempting the routine with the second-highest difficulty level of any of the eight finalists and executing it well enough to score a 15.933 and earn gold. He's also a favorite to repeat in the high bar.

In second place, Japan's Kohei Uchimura and Russia's Denis Ablyazin tied at 15.800, but Uchimura was awarded silver while Ablyazin took the bronze.

America's Jake Dalton participated in the event and scored a 15.333 to finish fifth.
