Despite the loss, Chen Yibing finishes gracefully with a hug to his opponent and a flash of his signature smile. "To be honest, my heart hurts, but I've learned more than winning and losing in these four years. I can accept wins and I can accept losses. I have no regrets today. I've done everything I can," Chen said in an interview.
I think everyone was surprised by the loss of Chen Yibing to Brazilian gymnast Arthur Nabarrete Zanetti. Zanetti is a brilliant gymnast, but Chen Yibing’s performance was nearly perfect. Chen Yibing gave the world his most perfect performance in the final of his career, but did not get the champion that he deserves.
