Kohei Uchimura: World Champion, Olympic Champion, Guinness World Record Holder

Kohei Uchimura's name is synonymous with Japanese men's gymnastics. He wins so many medals, he will probably need to build a trophy room in his home just to house all of his awards.

Kohei's name will also be forever ingrained in the pages of the Guinness book of World Records for having three consecutive world championship titles.  This photo was posted on his Facebook fan page.

It stands to reason that Kohei can probably just walk into the arena in Antwerp and he will be awarded gold just for showing up. Kohei is the father to a baby girl born April 19, and even taking some time off to spend with his bride and their baby didn't really slow him down.
