German Olympic champ pays visit to Cuban gymnastics star

German Fabian Hambüchen, 2016 Olympic horizontal bar champion, paid a visit to Cuban ace Manrique Larduet, who is currently competing in the 2018 German Gymnastics Bundesliga with the Siegerlander KV (SKV).

Larduet said Hambüchen is one of his idols, called him a friend and recognized being happy by having the opportunity of sharing with the already retired German athlete.
The Cuban gymnast, 2015 world runner-up, will remain until April 10 as a guest of the SVK, and will face next Saturday the KTV Straubenhardt, which is currently tied with SKV on top of the standings.
The stay on German soil will help Larduet in his preparation for the 2018 Barranquilla Central American and Caribbean Games, where the goal is to maintain the crown achieved in the previous edition of Veracruz 2014.
Although that contest will be his main objective, Larduet will also attend the World Cup in Portugal, on June, and the Doha World Championship, from October 25 to November 3 next.
