Career Highlights: Hypolito makes his second Olympic appearance this summer after finishing sixth in the floor exercise in Beijing. Hypolito, the 2005 and 2007 world champion in that event, is coming off knee surgery - his fifth since 2005 - in March to repair his right meniscus. "The movement is totally perfect, even better than in the other knee. I don't feel any pain," said Hypolito, who had similar surgery prior to the 2008 Games. Hypolito, the younger brother of Olympic gymnast Daniele Hypolito, began competing at the international level in 1996. At the most recent world championships, he finished third on the floor.
