2012 Olympics, Men's Gymnastics All-Around Final: American Danell Leyva Earns Bronze

Florida native Danell Leyva was looking to bounce back from a disappointing showing during the U.S.'s team competition in the individual all-around final on Wednesday at the 2012 Olympic games in London, earning himself a bronze medal for the United States with his outstanding showing.

The U.S. men's squad finished a disappointing fifth in the team competition earlier this week, though Leyva and teammate John Orozco qualified for the all-around event. Leyva made sure to bring A-game on Wednesday, using spectacular routines on both parallel bars and high bar to get himself onto the podium.

As for John Orozco, the Bronx, NY native would finish in 8th place overall.

Japan's Kohei Uchimura won the overall gold medal followed by Germany's Marcel Nguyen for the silver. Uchimura now has an Olympic gold medal to go with his three world titles, solidifying his resume as one of the best male gymnasts of all time.

That's another medal to add to the United States' count, though they remain in second place behind China overall. You can check out SI's complete medal tracker here.
