LONDON (AP) - No doubt about it, China is still No. 1 in men's gymnastics.
No. 2 took a little longer to figure out.
The Chinese won their second straight Olympic title and third in four games Monday, finishing with a score of 275.997 points.
Britain was initially announced as the silver medalist, setting off raucous celebrations at the O2 Arena. But Japan filed an inquiry over the score of three-time world champion Kohei Uchimura on pommel horse, the team's last routine. After judges spent about five minutes reviewing it, his score was revised and Japan was awarded the silver and Britain was bumped down to bronze.
The crowd booed, but any medal is a cause for celebration for the British men, who hadn't won one in a century.
The Americans, hoping for their first Olympic title since 1984 after finishing first in qualifying, finished fifth.
