The men's gymnastics individual all-around competition will unfold on Day 5 from the 2012 London Olympics, where a pair of talented Americans will look to rebound from a disappointing effort in the men's team final just two days earlier.

Danell Leyva and John Orozco will both head into uncharted territory on Wednesday, looking to claim their first ever Olympic medal with the entire world watching. 

There will be plenty more men's gymnastics action following the conclusion of the all-around this week, however, as six other individual finals begin late in the weekend. 

Here's everything you need to avoid missing a second of the thrilling competition from London's North Greenwich Arena this summer.

Predictions

Japanese gymnast Kohei Uchimura is the defending world champion in the all-around and is capable of pulling off some impressive routines. Uchimura has to be the favorite heading into the all-around, as well as the floor exercise, where he can demonstrate his athleticism extremely gracefully. 

American Danell Leyva's strength is on the parallel bars, where he is the defending world champion. Leyva won gold on the apparatus at last year's World Championships in Tokyo and will be one of the favorites win gold in the event in London.

In addition to Uchimura and Leyva, China's Chen Yibing and Zou Kai are two gymnasts to keep an eye on in the men's rings and vault respectively. Both are capable of outclassing the competition if things go their way.
