Sporno-rific gymnastics phenoms Danell Leyva, John Orozo (right) and Team USA have taken the early lead in gymnastics qualifications at the London Olympics. The USA men's team hopes to win their first gymnastics team gold medal since 1984.
Going into the evening's final session, with Russia among the teams still to come, the U.S. led Britain by 2.922 points with Japan third. Consistent performances by Danell Leyva and John Orozco across the six apparatus gave the Americans, cheered on by enthusiastic, flag-waving fans at the North Greenwich Arena, the edge.
Scores are reset to zero in Monday's team final, for which the best eight teams qualify.
