Jordan Jovtchev last chance for an Olympic medal

Jordan Jovtchev from Bulgaria is competing in his fifth Olympics in Beijing. He is 35 years old and has competed in every Olympics since 1992.

The rings specialist has won a total of 23 medals from the Olympics and major gymnastic tournaments, but is yet to win an Olympic gold.

“It would be really nice to make the final in Beijing, and then everybody has a chance,” he told Reuters. “It would be a miracle to get a gold medal, but not impossible. I’d be very glad with any kind of medal.”

Germany’s Oxana Chusovitina, 33, will also be competing in her fifth Olympics.
