Zanetti upsets Chen

View Comments

(AP) – Arthur Zanetti sprung a surprise by winning the Olympic title on still rings, taking down the “Lord of the Rings” in the process.

The Brazilian stunned defending Olympic gold medalist Chen Yibing, who had also won all but one of the last five world titles. When Zanetti’s 15.9 score flashed, his mouth dropped and the small crowd of Brazilian fans began waving flags and cheering.

Chen finished second. Matteo Morandi of Italy won the bronze medal.
