Westchester-trained Gymnast comes in 8th in Olympics


So what happened?

The Bronx boy came in 8th overall as a packed house at the gym where he trained and worked 7 days a week cheered him on.

He choked on the pommel horse, considered his best event, but did very well on the vault, parallel bars and high bar, according to his former coach, Jason Herbert at World Cup Gymnastics in Chappaqua.

And only 19, Orozco is already a favorite for the next Oympics.
