This week's gymnastics workout video takes us back to the training halls in Tokyo at the 2011 World Championships. Watch how the defending Olympic Champions prepare for a competition.

This workout was filmed on October 10, the day before the 2011 women's World Team Final. The Chinese team made a few errors and settled for the team bronze medal for the second year in a row. Later in the week, Yao Jinnan won the all around bronze medal, and Sui Lu was crowned 2011 Balance beam World Champion.

Gymnasts in this video: He Kexin, Jiang Yuyuan, Tan Sixin, Yao Jinnan, Huang Qiushuang, and Sui Lu.

He Kexin is a member of the Chinese National Team and a 2008 and 2012 Olympian for her country. At the Beijing Games, she won a gold medal on the uneven bars, competing the daring combination of Jaeger 1/2-Jaeger.

She famously tied with U.S. gymnast Nastia Liukin in that uneven bars final, but a lower variance in her execution scores gave her the edge over Liukin. He Kexin also helped the Chinese women's team to gold in 2008.

In 2012, He Kexin was selected as the fifth and final member of the Chinese Olympic Team headed to London, where she will have the opportunity to defend her title. She is still capable of a difficult 7.1 bars routine, one of the highest D-scores in the world, and was selected to the Chinese team for her prowess on the event.

He Kexin successfully defended her title at the 2009 World Championships, where she again struck gold on uneven bars. At the 2010 World Championships she slipped to 7th on bars, and won a bronze medal with her team. She was also a member of the Chinese team at the 2011 World Championships in Tokyo.

He Kexin became a member of the Chinese National Team in 2007. She began competing internationally in 2008 and at the Cottbus Cup, she scored a 16.8 on the Uneven Bars which was the highest score that had been recorded at that time under the then new Code of Points.
