Gold Gymnast Fabian Hambüchen is Taking Home the Rio High Bar by Spieth Gymnastics

After his Olympic victory, gold winner Fabian Hambüchen had an unusual request for the Swabian sports device manufacturer Spieth Gymnastics: he wanted to buy the high bar and invest up to 5000 €. But now he can keep the money in his pocket: Hambüchen will get the Rio 2016 high bar as a gift.
The idea came to Fabian Hambüchen spontaneously when, after the first marathon of interviews, he came back one more time to the sports hall. Hambüchen wanted to photograph the gold high bar with his phone camera after his Olympic victory, when a thought came to him out of nowhere: “Hey man, you have to buy this thing! It would be stupid to leave it standing here.”
