WBEZ | men's gymnastics team final http://www.wbez.org/tags/mens-gymnastics-team-final Latest from WBEZ Chicago Public Radio en Men's hairstyles throughout history, as seen on the heads of Olympic male gymnasts http://www.wbez.org/blogs/bez/2012-07/mens-hairstyles-throughout-history-seen-heads-olympic-male-gymnasts-101291 <p><p>CHINA! (Spoiler: They won.) Japan came in second in the men&#39;s gymnastics team finals, but only after a little intrigue; judges took a re-look at Kohei Uchimura of Japan&#39;s pommel horse performance, which bumped Japan up from fourth place to grab silver. This meant that the U.K., who originally thought they pulled off a revelatory second place win, was moved to bronze and poor, poor Ukraine didn&#39;t medal at all.&nbsp;</p><p>But was the upset of the U.S. team the most important thing? No. It&#39;s all about the hair.</p><div class="image-insert-image "><img alt="" class="image-original_image" src="http://www.wbez.org/system/files/styles/original_image/llo/insert-images/john%20o.jpg" style="height: 412px; width: 620px; " title="USA team member John Orozco.
