Gymnast nets first Bronx gold at Empire State Games
History repeated itself Friday when Bronx gymnast John Orozco won the borough its first gold medal at the 2007 Empire State Games.
The 14-year-old gymnast helped lead New York City to the gold for the second year in a row with his near-perfect floor exercise. He scored a 9.6.
Athletes from the region took the top two places in the all around gymnast category and scored a total of 254.450 points. Orozco placed first. The silver went to Alex Flores of Brooklyn.
Last year Orozco took home six gold medals.
