Super-talented and ridiculously hot is fit in all the right places as he takes the early lead in qualifying Saturday at the London Olympics. Smith and Team Great Britain shut down Olympic and World champion China. Smith capped the day with a brilliant pommel horse and 15.8 score for his routine today. GB finished with 272.420.
"China scored 269.985, followed by France (265.759) and South Korea (255.327). Japan, the silver medalist in Beijing, and the United States go later Saturday, as do Germany and Russia," reported AP.
Smith is described as Team GB's "best hope" for gymnastics gold at London 2012. The host country was only good enough to send two gymnasts to Beijing 2008. Smith took bronze and became only the second Black male gymnast to win an Olympic medal.
