On Saturday, the Bulgarian strongman will be the oldest competitor to stride, or even hobble, out at the North Greenwich Arena for what will be a record sixth Olympics for a gymnast.

With his distinctive salt-and-pepper hair, Iovtchev could easily be mistaken as an official or a coach whenever he marches into a sporting arena. But lift him up on his signature apparatus, the rings, and the years fade away.
