The Event Finals at the 2011 Gymnastics World Championships in Tokyo concluded what has been an exciting two weeks of Podium Training and Competition here in Japan. Fittingly, the final event of the entire competition was a phenomenally exciting high bar set from hometown hero Kohei Uchimura, which added another medal to his haul - this time a bronze on the event.
In all, the 2011 Worlds crowned 14 new World Champions - two in team, two in All-Around and six men's event champions and four women's event champions.
