Abstract

The objective of this article was to describe the training plan and the strategies developed with an Olympic champion gymnast on the rings in Men’s Artistic Gymnastics. In London 2012, our athlete became the first Brazilian to stand on the podium in the history of Gymnastics at Olympic Games, and the first Latin American to win an Olympic gold medal in Gymnastics. At the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, the gymnast again stood on the podium and won the silver medal. However, we have not yet seen studies that would highlight the preparation process of an athlete that culminated in such unprecedented achievements for Gymnastics at the continental level. We present the structure of the periodization of this gymnast for the period cycle that included the Olympic Games. In order to detail the training process, we looked at the training sheets with strength tests, the macrocycle, and the physical and technical preparation distributed among the three stages of the macrocycle. The periodization planned and applied by the coaches led the gymnast to increase the complexity of the technical elements of his routine, which made it possible to increase the final score. The main factors that facilitated the Olympic result were the training periodization in three stages and the competitive tactics in the preparatory evaluations.
