Biography Timeline


Nguyen was born in Munich, West Germany, in 1987 to a German mother and a Central Vietnamese father. He has one sister.


In 2005, Nguyen was the German junior champion on parallel bars, runner-up on rings and third in the vault. That same year he took part in the World Championships in Melbourne for the first time. During qualifications he placed 16th on parallel bars but did not qualify to the event finals. After the World Cup, Nguyen spent a year at the sports boarding school in Stuttgart in order to prepare with his teammates under the coaches Anatoli Jarmovski and Klaus Nigl for the 2006 World Championships in Aarhus. Nguyen competed at the 2006 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships where he helped Germany finish seventh in the team final.


In 2007 Nguyen competed at the 2007 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships where he helped Germany win the team bronze medal.


In 2009 Marcel finished second in the Champions Trophy and the German Championship. This was followed by winning the title in the German National league with KTV Straubenhard.


In 2010, Nguyen competed at the 2010 European Men's Artistic Gymnastics Championships where he helped Germany win team gold. Individually he won bronze on floor exercise and placed sixth on vault and still rings. Later that year he broke the fibula in his right leg at a friendly meet between Germany, Switzerland, and Romania.


In 2011 Nguyen competed at the 2011 European Artistic Gymnastics Championships. He won the gold medal on parallel bars, making him the first gymnast to have won since 1955. He later competed at the 2011 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships where he helped Germany place sixth in the team final and individually he placed eighth in the all-around.


In the 2012 London Olympic Games, Nguyen won two Olympic silver medals after competing in the Men's artistic team all-around, individual all-around, floor and parallel bars. Nguyen collected the first all-around gymnastics medal for Germany since the 1936 Summer Olympic Games held in Berlin. His second silver medal was on the individual apparatus final of parallel bars, and the German team all-around finished in 7th place. Lastly, he finished in 8th place on the floor individual apparatus final, an event, for which he had little time to prepare and initially not qualified but was brought as first reserve last minute to complete the roster of the event final, after another athlete who had qualified for the final withdrew due to injury. At the European Championships in 2014, he placed 4th on the team, but failed to qualify for any of the individual finals. In September 2014, he was at the home championships in Stuttgart on parallel bars and rings which is where he tore his ACL.


After his ACL injury, Nguyen celebrated his comeback at German national championships in Giessen, where he was qualified to take part at the World Championships 2015 in Glasgow. Although the German team was not directly qualified for the Olympic Games 2016, Nguyen participated at the Test Event of Olympic Games in April 2016. The German team won that round and got the right to participate in the Olympics. The last events before the Olympic Games were quite successful for Nguyen – the bronze medal on the parallel bars with 15,566 at the European Championships in Bern and gold at the German national championships at the rings. That was the 7th title of Nguyen at this apparatus. For the first time since 2009, he did not win the gold medal on the parallel bar and stayed second behind his teammate Lukas Dauser. This caused the second ranking in the overall competition as well but saved the nomination to represent Germany in the Olympic Games 2016.

Olympic Games 2016 brought Nguyen and his team the 7th place in overall teams ranking. During his routine on parallel bars, the new element was shown – "The Nguyen" is added to the Code of points (with a grade "E" which is higher as average) and brings 0.5 points to the athlete who completes it without mistake.

Family Life

Marcel's father is named Van Lac and is Vietnamese, and his mother is German.
