Krisztián Berki wins GOLD

Hungary's Krisztián Berki won the men's Olympic pommel horse final on Sunday. He prevented competitor Louis Smith from claiming Great Britain's first ever artistic gymnastics gold medal by the finest of margins.  Berki, who was the double world champion, scored 16.066 points for his performance, exactly the same as his rival, Louis Smith. The judges declared Berki the winner because the technical execution of his exercises were better than any of his rivals. Good job Krisztián!
