Day One - Event Finals at 2013 Worlds

5:36 AM

Okay so this year study, work and other commitments have been quite honestly kicking my butt. I will endeavor to catch up on all the results and news as soon as humanly possible. Right now my focus is on tonight's Event Finals. The competition in Antwerp will see finalists competing on the Floor Exercise, Pommel Horse and Still Rings for the Men and for the Women, finalists will be seen on the Vault and Uneven Bars.

Clean routine from Kohei Uchimura on Floor Exercise, whilst Steven Legendre had a couple of landing issues. Diego Hypolito also had issues with his landings as well. Phenomenal routine from Jacob Dalton!! And Kenzo Shirai scores 0.400 higher than Dalton to take the 2013 Floor Exercise World Title. Uchimura picks up the bronze. 

Phenomenal first vault for Switzerland's Giulia Steingruber. Dutchwoman Chantysha Netteb grabbed her right knee after landing her first vault. Hope she's okay and has a speedy recovery. McKayla Maroney has done it, winning the title over compatriot Simone Biles with HONG Un Jong (PRK) rounding out the top three.

How excited would I be if Alberto Busnari of Italy can hold on to claim a medal? Very. Well that didn't eventuate but well done to Japan's Kohei Kameyama who took the honors over Great Britain's Max Whitlock and Mexico's Daniel Corral Barron who tied for second place.

In a highly exciting Uneven Bars final, it was China's HUANG Huidan who prevailed. Kyla Ross picked up the silver medal over Russia's Aliya Mustafina. And on the Still Rings, Brazil's Arthur Nabarrete Zanetti won over Russia's Aleksandr Balandin and American Brandon Wynn.
