Definitive Proof That Olympic Gymnast Kōhei Uchimura Is the Most Flexible Bae of Them All

He knows how to work a ~horizontal bar~.

Kōhei Uchimura is a Japanese artistic gymnast who’s so good at his craft, his nickname is “Superman.” Kōhei has seven Olympic medals to his name and is arguably one of the best male gymnasts of all time. He’s also one of the sexiest.

Kōhei is five feet and three inches of bae. He knows how to work a horizontal bar, bend his body in a variety of ways and defy gravity. His many talents may or may not say anything about his bedroom behavior, but they definitely qualified him for the 2016 Olympics—where he won gold.
