34 Year-Old Tsukahara Competes at Australian National Championships

International Gymnast reported that Tsukahara competed at the Australian National Championships last weekend. Apparently, he won.  That makes three years in a row that he has “unofficially” won while he awaits his Australian citizenship. Great to see a man in his thirties competing at the elite level. Here is a video of his vault from the 2010 championships.

I’d love to know his training secrets…and if he is bottling his Super-Olympian family genes for distribution to the rest of us gym-mortals.
