BEIJING — The Chinese men can’t lose in Olympic gymnastics.
Zou Kai, a gold medalist in the men’s team event, won the floor exercise Sunday night, giving China three wins in as many attempts.
Gervasio Deferr of Spain took the silver with a powerful series of somersaults and twists, then threw kisses to the crowd. Russia’s Anton Golotsutskov got the bronze.
World champion Diego Hypolito of Brazil seemed headed for a medal until he fell on the landing of his final pass. Hypolito then sat nearly in tears, shaking his head back and forth.
Three-time world champ Marian Dragulescu of Romania fell on his second tumbling pass.
