ST. LOUIS -- You don't want to take your eyes off Danell Leyva as he competes in gymnastics. He is the reigning U.S. champion because of his high-flying release moves that demand your attention. However, if anything will make you turn your head, it's the moves of his stepfather and coach, Yin Alvarez.
During Leyva's performance, Alvarez performs every move on the ground. He gets the crowd going with large, overhead claps. If it's possible to share his energy with Leyva, Alvarez can do it as he hops, jumps and waves wildly during his son's routines. Watch Levya's vault from Thursday night, and see Alvarez (wearing a gray shirt) make an appearance at the end.
