    Japan's Kohei Uchimura, nicknamed "Superman," clinched the gold medal at the men's gymnastics all-around competition Wednesday in London. After struggling early in the day on the pommel horse, the same element that gave him trouble during Monday's team competition, Team U.S.A.'s Danell Levya came from behind to win the bronze medal. Germany's Marcel Nguyen took silver. Though China won the team gold, the country had no individual competitors in the all-around finals.
