London 2012: 5 Bold Predictions for Gymnastics at Olympic Summer Games

One of the most exciting aspects of the Olympics and sport in general is the unexpected turn of events, the random plot twists and the comebacks from nowhere. That is why fans are constantly rooting for the underdog and campaigning for a comeback.

Of course as a sports reporter I am always hoping for the best story because I want there to be something exciting to write about.

A lot of storylines seem pretty locked in place for gymnastics in London: Jordyn Wieber of Team USA is going to win the women's all-around. Japan's Kohei Uchimura is the best men's gymnast in the world and there's no contest that he'll win the gold in the men's all-around. 

I'm here to challenge all of that because in a subjectively judged sport where athletes are given just one chance to make it or break it and there's such a high risk of injury, anything can happen. It's not over until they're on the medal stand.

And in Paul Hamm's case, it's not over then either.
