Brazilian gymnast Diego Hypolito was the favorite to win gold in the floor exercise yesterday. His floor routine is one of the most difficult in the world, and features two tumbling moves so unique they carry his name. After nailing pretty much every single tumbling pass though, Diego fell on his final landing, finishing in sixth place.
Had Diego won, he would have been the first Brazilian Olympic gymnastics medalist. Watch his floor exercise on the video below.
With the entire country counting on a gold medal from him, I can only imagine how he felt yesterday.
