Tokyo World Cup

4:20 AM

The next edition of the World Cup series will be held in Tokyo, Japan, on the 26th and 27th of November. This is a Category A World Cup, All Around competition will be held at the Ryoguko Kokugikon Sports Hall, more commonly known as a famous Sumo Wrestling hall. I cannot wait! It's sad that the Women's competition has one less competitor, but both the Women's and Men's fields are still exciting! It'll be the first time that World All Around Champion Kohei Uchimura will take on his compatriot up-and-comer Shogo Nonomura in an international arena.... It's set to be an exciting showdown that's for sure. For the Women, I predict HUANG Qiushuang to medal, however I would love to see German Kim Bui or one of the Australia's on the podium.... GOOD LUCK TO ALL!!
