RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - Max Whitlock made it a day to remember for Britain when he swiveled to the top of the podium with a smooth and silky pommel horse performance which earned him a second gold at the Olympics on Sunday.
Less than two hours after he ended Britain's 120-year wait for an Olympic gymnastics gold medal by winning the floor exercise, Whitlock was again on top in his specialist event with a score of 15.966.
Louis Smith completed a 1-2 for Britain as he picked up a second successive Olympic silver in the discipline with 15.833.
American Alex Naddour picked up the bronze.
