A good afternoon and welcome to coverage of the European gymnastics

:00:49.:00:56.

champ sthip. A sport which Britain have been well known for. It is

:00:57.:01:00.

difficult to put into words what happened in Rio last summer. So we

:01:01.:01:05.

will let the gymnastics do the talking. Medal and medal. What an

:01:06.:01:18.

Olympics Great Britain have had. Let's get ready to tumble and fly

:01:19.:01:26.

with gymnastics. Stylish gymnast, starts off cleanly. He has to go for

:01:27.:01:36.

broke. Beautifully performed. Big release. Goodlad. Wow, what a

:01:37.:01:48.

routine. Looking very at home. What a cool customer. Niall Wilson makes

:01:49.:02:09.

history. The Briony Paige wins. Amy Tinkler. The Olympic champion. Well

:02:10.:02:17.

done Lewis. He takes silver. Max Whit lock is now a double Olympic

:02:18.:02:25.

champion. What an Olympics Great Britain have had. Quite something.

:02:26.:02:30.

Quite something wasn't it? There is plenty more to talk about from the

:02:31.:02:35.

last 24 hours at the European Championships in Cluj in Romania and

:02:36.:02:43.

I'm joined by greatness, with Beth Tweddle and Kristian Thomas. Happy

:02:44.:02:48.

memories from the summer? Yes, it seems so long ago and watching that

:02:49.:02:56.

back you get the shivers going up and down your spine, the opportunity

:02:57.:03:01.

to see how special that was for British gymnastics. It was

:03:02.:03:06.

fantastic. I'm saying sitting there watching it, you're not competing,

:03:07.:03:11.

it is evidence the British team has taken on a different shape since

:03:12.:03:18.

Rio. Yes, most of the lads there, as with myself, yeah, everybody's just

:03:19.:03:22.

regaining a bit of their training and their strength work they had

:03:23.:03:28.

lost with having time off. We are at a point where they're building up

:03:29.:03:31.

slowly and staying away from injuries. So Here is who has

:03:32.:03:38.

qualified. Would you have expected the lads to

:03:39.:03:52.

do that well, relatively new faces? Absolutely. Because I have had the

:03:53.:03:57.

privilege of training with some of these guys, I have seen what they're

:03:58.:04:01.

capable of. It is a great opportunity to show case their

:04:02.:04:06.

gymnastics, I wasn't surprised they made the finals and I'm looking

:04:07.:04:16.

forward to seeing what they can do. Now Beth the women's team.

:04:17.:04:27.

Alice Kinsella a new face. Great qualification. It was and I think

:04:28.:04:36.

that we have a mixture of youth and experience. Eilie is still so young.

:04:37.:04:47.

We have three of our members of Rio and that will give Alice the

:04:48.:04:51.

confidence that knowing that she is competing with those guys and if

:04:52.:04:54.

there is any issues, she can talk to them and they know what is expected.

:04:55.:04:58.

It is quite something that the seniors can have the ability to take

:04:59.:05:02.

a rest and yet let those others come through. With the usual crew

:05:03.:05:07.

stepping aside the door is open for other members of British squad to

:05:08.:05:12.

make their mark on Europe. So let's meet two men grasping that

:05:13.:05:15.

opportunity in their first major senior competition. 21-year-old

:05:16.:05:22.

James Hall and 18-year-old Joe Fraser. How much are you enjoying

:05:23.:05:28.

being here as part of senior team? I'm really enjoying being part of

:05:29.:05:31.

senior team. We have all come together as a team and we are all

:05:32.:05:36.

helping each other push through the barriers. James, you have been

:05:37.:05:41.

around the British senior teams for a long time now, you have been

:05:42.:05:49.

reserve in some big competition, now you're out there, what's it been

:05:50.:05:55.

like. It was hard to predict what it would feel like, I was expecting to

:05:56.:06:01.

be supported by everyone and for it to go smoothly. It didn't feel any

:06:02.:06:07.

different from the British Championships, nerves - wise. I did

:06:08.:06:11.

my job and it paid off. You did well at the British Championships as

:06:12.:06:15.

well? Yes from the British Championships for me was quite an

:06:16.:06:20.

experience, because I became British champion and that is something that

:06:21.:06:25.

we didn't expect to happen to be honest, because we just wanted to

:06:26.:06:30.

try some new elements and see how I broke into the senior team. But to

:06:31.:06:33.

come away British champion was a great experience. James Hall, Great

:06:34.:06:42.

Britain. You came third in qualifying for the all-round. How

:06:43.:06:50.

happy are you with that? Very. For my first senior Championships, I

:06:51.:06:55.

wasn't concentrating on what place I was going to finish, I thought get

:06:56.:06:59.

into the all-round final and put on a show and third mrafs is not bad.

:07:00.:07:03.

Will you get to the final, do you give yourself a goal to place. I

:07:04.:07:08.

focus on clean routines and then the result will come after that. How

:07:09.:07:13.

would you rate your chances here of getting into the top three and

:07:14.:07:16.

getting a medal? To be honest, I haven't thought about it too much. I

:07:17.:07:20.

don't want to overthink it as it were. But if I do the same as

:07:21.:07:26.

yesterday, and step it up a notch it's anything is possible. Anything

:07:27.:07:33.

can happen. They're both sounding very relaxed! And we should mention

:07:34.:07:40.

for the scores, those watching will sort of see lower scores than usual,

:07:41.:07:46.

because of the new code? Yes after the Olympics the rules get changed a

:07:47.:07:51.

bit. So they have to rethink their routine and put different

:07:52.:07:55.

requirements no. Normally for the men's all round, when we see them at

:07:56.:08:01.

the Olympics, they were scoring 92 and 91. You will be more to 86 and

:08:02.:08:07.

85. So don't be surprised if the scores are lower. There is an

:08:08.:08:12.

opportunity for lots of gymnasts coming through with the different

:08:13.:08:19.

shape of their routines. The all-round final took place yesterday

:08:20.:08:26.

morning. So let's see how well James Hall and Joe Fraser did. Here are

:08:27.:08:30.

the highlights of men's all-round final and I was in the commentary

:08:31.:08:33.

box. Now to 18-year-old J Fraser from

:08:34.:08:49.

Great Britain. His first senior competition this. His first of six

:08:50.:08:54.

pieces of apparatus. Control at the start. Back up rise

:08:55.:09:07.

to the Maltese. A bit high in the shoulders. But these are big

:09:08.:09:14.

strength moves for a young gymnast. Nice and fluent, the double pike

:09:15.:09:18.

into the double front and much stronger in the back up rise. Slight

:09:19.:09:28.

arm bend there. Good line in the hand sfand. -- stand. Beautiful

:09:29.:09:32.

forward long swing. Showing great control. Has to fight a bit in the

:09:33.:09:43.

backward long swing. Controls it well. Winds up, into the miscount.

:09:44.:09:49.

Double twist and double back. Solid on the landing. Good start. Very

:09:50.:09:55.

good start of the last year he was the European junior all-round bronze

:09:56.:10:00.

medallist. He got a gold on parallel bars and third on pommels as well.

:10:01.:10:04.

So no stranger to this stage if you like. It's just now he's in a

:10:05.:10:08.

different age group, Chris. That's right. It is always a shock to the

:10:09.:10:13.

system when you go up to the seniors when you have been very good in the

:10:14.:10:17.

junior ranks. But he is a very good competitor. He just needs to remain

:10:18.:10:23.

consistent, stay calm and keep going. 13.633 for Joe Fraser.

:10:24.:10:51.

He is the all-round Russian champion. Beautiful start. Full

:10:52.:11:00.

twist, immediate two and a half twist. It is linking the difficult

:11:01.:11:05.

skims that bill your -- skills that build your difficulty. Compact

:11:06.:11:12.

gymnast. And a double twisting double back. Didn't even use the

:11:13.:11:17.

full extent of the floor area. Quite a short run and again a short run.

:11:18.:11:23.

Two and a half. Double twisting front. Packing the difficulties

:11:24.:11:28.

together. This will be a high D score. He is not going to have too

:11:29.:11:35.

shoddy an E score. The D score is for difficulty. The E score is for

:11:36.:11:40.

execution. And his execution, look at the beautifully extended toes and

:11:41.:11:42.

legs. Really stylish. Big last trim twist and that's the

:11:43.:11:59.

way you -- triple twist and that is the way you land a tumble. The

:12:00.:12:04.

second highest qualifier is on song today. That was something special,

:12:05.:12:12.

he did four tumbles back-to-back at the start. Verniaiev, current

:12:13.:12:23.

all-round European champion. He has made the floor final. So prepare for

:12:24.:12:28.

fireworks. But it is going to be performance for performance with him

:12:29.:12:34.

and his competitor. He is being chased. We haven't seen him in this

:12:35.:12:40.

position. Oh, a three and a half twist into a full twisting front.

:12:41.:12:46.

That was a big error. Just shows the pressure. Another fantastic twisting

:12:47.:12:55.

series there. Lovely double twisting, double back. He is in his

:12:56.:13:00.

stride a bit more now. I was about to say we have seen him chasing, but

:13:01.:13:05.

we haven't seen him being chased. It is quite a different feeling. He

:13:06.:13:11.

doesn't really look edgy. I just think he tried to be slightly too

:13:12.:13:20.

perfect. As Craig said, he has done a lot of competitions. He is very

:13:21.:13:34.

slight and strong. Just a little edgy on that landing. He looks

:13:35.:13:39.

strapped actually. Shoulder and ankles. Very nice triple twist to

:13:40.:13:46.

finish. But it says it all on his face, when your first tumble pass

:13:47.:13:53.

has your hand down. It was a huge opening tumble. That fall, he will

:13:54.:13:58.

probably lose a connection bonus. But the rest of the time his routine

:13:59.:14:11.

was back on it. 14.766. It is a huge floor score for Verniaiev. Very much

:14:12.:14:19.

down on his opponent. Here is the leader board.

:14:20.:14:39.

Vern yooif Verniaiev has a lot of work to do in 15th.

:14:40.:14:54.

I don't care how experienced you are, you still be only pressure a

:14:55.:15:02.

little bit. So Verniaiev mixes way to the pommel horse, he has

:15:03.:15:06.

qualified for the pommel horse final in seventh. Here he goes. Excellent

:15:07.:15:12.

single leg work into the hands stand, one of the most difficult

:15:13.:15:16.

pommel horse routines. Up into the handstand with pirouette, slight

:15:17.:15:23.

adjustment, but nothing too major. Picks up nicely into the double leg

:15:24.:15:28.

circle sweep, onto the one handle, that builds the difficulty there.

:15:29.:15:32.

Intricate work between the handles, that is the Russian Wendy swing.

:15:33.:15:39.

Going well, building the difficulty, got to keep the momentum. The travel

:15:40.:15:47.

is really difficult stuff, combines it into the Russian circle on the

:15:48.:15:52.

end. Oh, come on, the forward travel Mike Ellicock a slightly skewed,

:15:53.:15:59.

that is deductible. -- Magyar. A little bit of line but job done. He

:16:00.:16:05.

is through, and that is the main thing! That face said it all! Put

:16:06.:16:15.

your hand guards on and get onto the rings, that is what that face was!

:16:16.:16:20.

He lived with the pressure, a difficult routine, he probably might

:16:21.:16:23.

have felt that he was approaching today able to pull back on

:16:24.:16:28.

difficulty, when you have mucked up your first piece, you know you have

:16:29.:16:35.

to go for it, haven't you? 14.5, Verniaiev looks in a bid of

:16:36.:16:38.

amazement and says, I will have that! Now, thought of qualification

:16:39.:16:44.

in his mind, this was his lowest peace in qualification. He will get

:16:45.:16:49.

through, hopefully. Started strong on the single leg work, this is nice

:16:50.:16:55.

to say, the flares with a spindle half turn. He is very square with

:16:56.:17:03.

his hand position, that is a good sign of good pommel work. Really

:17:04.:17:10.

interesting travel, so not only stylish but inventive. A little bit

:17:11.:17:17.

of loss of form, brushing of the horse, so a little bit of strength

:17:18.:17:20.

there. I think you should have done a pirouette on dismount, but I think

:17:21.:17:26.

that will score better than his qualification. 13.366 for Ignatyev.

:17:27.:17:36.

So there we have it, James Hall, confirmation, ahead of Verniaiev,

:17:37.:17:37.

Casimir Schmidt in third. This is the third piece of apparatus

:17:38.:17:53.

of six, so just a reminder, James Hall from Great Britain leading the

:17:54.:17:59.

men's all-around competition. 5.4 on difficulty. Backward rise to the

:18:00.:18:08.

Maltese. A little bit high, nice in the swing, double front, into the

:18:09.:18:13.

Maltese. Nice in the double front, double

:18:14.:18:24.

pike, linked well, back-up to the straddle planche. This is really

:18:25.:18:35.

good, solid work, come on, James! Hang on. Locked out well in the

:18:36.:18:40.

handstand, forward long swing, come on! Hang on! Backward long swing,

:18:41.:18:48.

slight adjustment, but controlled it well. Double twisting double back,

:18:49.:18:59.

get in, son, have some of that! Well, he has got just over half a

:19:00.:19:04.

mark on Verniaiev. That was a great performance from James. 13.8, very

:19:05.:19:12.

good FOI James Hall. Cracking competition so far. Davtyan, in

:19:13.:19:19.

fourth at the moment. Just waiting for vault. This is a very important

:19:20.:19:28.

piece of apparatus for Davtyan in fourth, this could catapult him into

:19:29.:19:35.

the medals. And he is renowned on vault, beautiful twist, just

:19:36.:19:39.

slightly offline. Lovely straight body, two and a half twists.

:19:40.:19:44.

Handspring right up into the rafters. You can see why he is a

:19:45.:19:56.

good vaulter. The score is in, 14.833, it is a very big score.

:19:57.:20:03.

Well, Verniaiev now on rings, his third of six pieces of apparatus.

:20:04.:20:08.

Currently in second place behind Great Britain's James Hall. Well,

:20:09.:20:16.

that is a strong start, circles around to the Maltese, flat with the

:20:17.:20:19.

rings, that is the position we are looking for, look at that, shoulders

:20:20.:20:23.

and body level. And into the crucifix. This gymnast has it all on

:20:24.:20:32.

this piece of apparatus, for me, strength and swing, double tuck,

:20:33.:20:37.

double pike. Into crucifix, that is strong work. 6 difficulty, so one of

:20:38.:20:48.

the stronger competitors. No mistake in the back-up rise. Locks out the

:20:49.:20:56.

handstand. Swings forward, this is good, classy work, waits for the

:20:57.:20:59.

dismount, double twisting double back, nails it! Verniaiev is on the

:21:00.:21:06.

money! Well, that is why he is the current all-around European

:21:07.:21:10.

champion, doing everything he can to try to retain that title. He is

:21:11.:21:15.

fighting hard, he is not about to roll over. He might have made a

:21:16.:21:19.

mistake previously, but this was beautiful work. 14.700 on the rings!

:21:20.:21:26.

There you go, he has gone ahead of Great Britain's James Hall.

:21:27.:21:33.

Confirmation that Davtyan leads halfway around, ahead of Verniaiev,

:21:34.:21:39.

James Hall in third, with Ignatyev in fourth, Joe Fraser in seventh at

:21:40.:21:41.

the moment for Great Britain. Artur Dalaloyan was leading at the

:21:42.:21:57.

first piece of apparatus, dropped down to tenth, now in fifth, a score

:21:58.:22:05.

of 14.900 in qualification, so we might see a score over 15 from him,

:22:06.:22:10.

Dalaloyan with it all to do, his fourth piece.

:22:11.:22:15.

Good round off, a triple twist, they don't come much better than that!

:22:16.:22:25.

Goodness, we have seen gymnasts not quite get around, that was as clean

:22:26.:22:31.

as a whistle. This guy is built for power, look at this, Yu can go,

:22:32.:22:39.

blocks on, that will score big. 14.933, so very close to the 15

:22:40.:22:47.

mark. Verniaiev qualified fourth for the vault final. Second place at

:22:48.:23:00.

this piece of apparatus is over so, so quickly. He is such a slight

:23:01.:23:10.

gymnast, but so explosive, and he needs to be today - double front

:23:11.:23:14.

with the half turn, that was massive! That was how do answer

:23:15.:23:22.

pressure. Wow! It just hit the roof, didn't it? We were talking about his

:23:23.:23:25.

ability to spot the landings and what have you, but he gives himself

:23:26.:23:31.

so much time in the air to perform his gymnastics. We will be back

:23:32.:23:35.

there shortly for the score, but Davtyan is chalking up for P bars,

:23:36.:23:48.

the current leader. Not one other stronger pieces of apparatus, he

:23:49.:23:54.

will have to work extremely hard. Nice and blighted, the under

:23:55.:23:58.

somersault, that is good work. -- flighted. We don't want to see any

:23:59.:24:05.

bent arms on parallel bars. Somersault, a little bit of a hop

:24:06.:24:16.

around, lift to handstand. That is the swing, half turn, full turn,

:24:17.:24:25.

front up rise. Could just do with a little bit more pace, huge double

:24:26.:24:29.

pike, and enough time to nail the lending role. Not the most difficult

:24:30.:24:34.

piece of apparatus, but very, very clean, keeping the pressure on. He

:24:35.:24:39.

scored 13.633 as far as qualification is concerned, he needs

:24:40.:24:50.

to be up close to the 14s. Verniaiev, 14.700. Ignatyev was in

:24:51.:25:00.

fourth going into this. Oh, a big move backwards! That was the

:25:01.:25:05.

handspring double front without they half turn, so not such a high

:25:06.:25:12.

tariff. 13.700, confirmation for Davtyan. To bring you up to date

:25:13.:25:19.

with Joe Fraser. Lovely early release, caught on straight arms. He

:25:20.:25:24.

is very good only apparatus, full twisting straight, Kovacs, one of

:25:25.:25:30.

the most difficult moves you will see. And then in attack position,

:25:31.:25:37.

times it beautifully. Long gymnast. Nice smooth one armed circle into

:25:38.:25:48.

his close bar work. Pirouettes are good as well, he turns on top of the

:25:49.:25:53.

bar. Winds up for the dismount, here it comes, two twists, double

:25:54.:25:59.

straight. Wow. Very nice work indeed from Joe Fraser. He just hits you

:26:00.:26:03.

with potential, when you watch like that, the style and flair on a piece

:26:04.:26:08.

like Eibar, the British Eibar champion scored 13.8 00. -- I are.

:26:09.:26:14.

This is how things stand at the rotation four with James Hall still

:26:15.:26:17.

in the hunt for a medal. Come on, Verniaiev. World champion.

:26:18.:26:35.

Yeah, this is your piece. Oh, just a joy to watch, two times European

:26:36.:26:39.

champion on this piece of apparatus. He has done them all, European,

:26:40.:26:40.

world and Olympic. And this is a lesson in parallel bar

:26:41.:26:54.

work. Look at that, straight into handstand, arms locked out there,

:26:55.:27:00.

somersault, half turn, to one bar, oh, he had to fight there, an

:27:01.:27:06.

adjustment, but he has got the combination, the Healy turn. Very

:27:07.:27:10.

difficult skill. Look at the height, the transfer from under two over the

:27:11.:27:16.

bars, and again. Virtuoso performance. A little bit dished

:27:17.:27:25.

through the swing on the Healy turn. Have to fight on the struts. Not

:27:26.:27:33.

flawless, by any means, but it has got the difficulty, double front

:27:34.:27:38.

half turn, replicates the vault. Well, the current leader goes

:27:39.:27:45.

through, but how costly will those deductions be as far as his

:27:46.:27:49.

execution is concerned? He managed to hang onto the difficulty. Well,

:27:50.:27:54.

it was a very edgy performance, wasn't it? He struggles to lock out,

:27:55.:28:00.

the whole idea is that you hit your position, hold it strongly, and he

:28:01.:28:08.

made that hard work. So Ignatyev, the second gymnast in his group to

:28:09.:28:12.

go up on parallel bars, he qualified with 14.2 33. Solid start, under

:28:13.:28:25.

somersault into the dip out. Good, clean work on the under somersault,

:28:26.:28:29.

beautiful combination, very difficult, front up rise into the

:28:30.:28:34.

double back somersault, we don't see that. Again, from upper arm in

:28:35.:28:37.

support, two double backs from two starting positions. Nice on the

:28:38.:28:45.

swing, great control. Variety, front up rise oh, double front somersault,

:28:46.:28:54.

high in the air, just lost control and landed! But beautiful parallel

:28:55.:28:59.

bar work, really innovative. Yes, but he is just being a bit unsteady

:29:00.:29:06.

on all his landings. So James Hall from Great Britain, two pieces of

:29:07.:29:10.

apparatus left to go, two more chances to get up into the medals in

:29:11.:29:13.

this men's all-around European final. Well, this is going to be the

:29:14.:29:20.

test for him. His favoured peace, a little bit short on the under

:29:21.:29:31.

somersault. Nice, clean, high flight there. A little bit of a leg split,

:29:32.:29:38.

arching the back, and adjustment, come on, James. A bit of a in the

:29:39.:29:45.

bottom on the Healy turn as well. -- a bit of a. That is better! High in

:29:46.:29:51.

the straddle front, catches into the bent arms support, difficult skill,

:29:52.:29:58.

nice lining handstand. Come on, keep going! Double front, lands it! Very

:29:59.:30:09.

good! Oh it is on, I tell you what - it is on, goodness me, one more

:30:10.:30:14.

piece of apparatus to go, and Chris, under that kind of pressure, I do

:30:15.:30:17.

not know if he could have done it much better!

:30:18.:30:22.

Well Joan James, he is a lovely guy. He was the reserve in 2015 and that

:30:23.:30:33.

was a great performance. Fabulous, really thrilled for him. Just one

:30:34.:30:38.

more piece to go, James, hang on in there! The next gymnast up is

:30:39.:30:51.

Dalaloyan. James scored 14.16 6. Dalaloyan is just over a mark behind

:30:52.:31:02.

Verniaiev. A strong start. That is good flight. Positive hand

:31:03.:31:11.

placement. High in the front somersault. Clean catch. This is

:31:12.:31:17.

good parallel bar work. Good extension. You see a few piking

:31:18.:31:23.

that, but that was very solid. Accurate with the hand placements.

:31:24.:31:32.

Straight up to hand stand. This is good work. Needs to hang on. Big

:31:33.:31:41.

front up rise. A little adjustment. But well solid and constructed

:31:42.:31:45.

routine. He is the last one in the pack to go. So we will get a good

:31:46.:31:49.

idea of standings hopefully after that. He is a very impressive young

:31:50.:31:59.

jam nas. -- gymnast. He creates lot of energy. Zippy! Is the word, yes!

:32:00.:32:08.

So this is a big performance. Very big.

:32:09.:32:22.

There is two pieces of apparatus to go for them. That was smooth. That

:32:23.:32:37.

counts as your release and recatch. Nice turn. That was a little offhand

:32:38.:32:49.

stand that shoot out. The half turn. Not so difficult. We haven't seen

:32:50.:32:56.

any big releases. Here we come just a double twisting, double tap

:32:57.:33:00.

dismount. Nicely performed but that will not carry so much difficulty as

:33:01.:33:04.

many of the routines we have seen. And there was only just 0.1 between

:33:05.:33:10.

him and James Hall in fourth. So James should go ahead of him. But

:33:11.:33:14.

will he stay in fourth or can he get into the medals? We will find out

:33:15.:33:23.

shortly. 13.16 6. He will drop way out there.

:33:24.:33:34.

Davatyan has dropped into fifth. Looking good for James Hall.

:33:35.:33:44.

This is the final rotation of men's European all-round final. Chasing a

:33:45.:34:07.

medal. That was a good turn. Full twist in the straight somersault

:34:08.:34:12.

over the bar. And in the tuck position. Super straight, swings out

:34:13.:34:25.

well. Lovely turn on top of the bar. One arm circle, doesn't faulter in

:34:26.:34:32.

the swing. But the pirouette was late. He has given a few marks to

:34:33.:34:39.

the judges. Much cleaner that time. So here we go, big dispount, the two

:34:40.:34:44.

twists. That was a strong challenge. He has laid down the gauntlet there.

:34:45.:34:51.

My word. He has indeed. That is definitely the performance to beat

:34:52.:34:57.

for a medal. Big on the difficulty, but also room for lots of execution

:34:58.:35:03.

deductions. Didn't give much away on the dismount, did he? No. Ignatyev

:35:04.:35:16.

there. Get the calculators out now. Now the final piece of apparatus.

:35:17.:35:21.

13.4 to stay ahead. All of that training boils down to

:35:22.:35:37.

this one routine. This all-round final. James Hall for Great Britain

:35:38.:35:46.

going for a medal. You have go for it. Here you can see him start the

:35:47.:35:52.

big series. Oh and he caught. Full twist in the straight position. He

:35:53.:35:56.

has got another one of these. Without the twist this time. And

:35:57.:36:03.

another with the twist. In the tuck shape. Must pirouette as well now.

:36:04.:36:11.

Squat with the full turn. Has to show the different grips. He has

:36:12.:36:17.

done that so far. The coach anxiously by. Full pirouette. Her

:36:18.:36:25.

here comes the dismount. Double twist. Double straight. Well done,

:36:26.:36:31.

James, wh a fantastic performance. All round six pieces. Wow! Really

:36:32.:36:38.

hats off to you. Well, he wore his heart on his sleeve there. He went

:36:39.:36:42.

all out and if you're going to go out and win yourself a medal, that

:36:43.:36:49.

is how you do it. There is a couple of times his hand was on so late, I

:36:50.:36:55.

thought he was off the bar. But yur right, hoe just went for -- but

:36:56.:36:58.

you're right he went for everything. And he only needs 13.4 to go up

:36:59.:37:08.

there. Relief. Job done. 14.1 for James Hall. Now Dalaloyan. This has

:37:09.:37:20.

to be perfect to stay ahead of James. Lovely first recatch. Two

:37:21.:37:28.

super somersaults over the bar. Just as on parallel bars, he is a gymnast

:37:29.:37:33.

with lots of energy. Lovely turn in hand stands. Huge, straight. Extends

:37:34.:37:42.

the feet behind him. Lovely full turn into the hand stand position.

:37:43.:37:48.

Hop over the bar. He also is going for broke here. Lovely style, those

:37:49.:37:58.

legs locked together. Turn into the forward grip. Swinging full turn.

:37:59.:38:06.

Just needs a good, strong dismount. Here is comes, two twichs - twists

:38:07.:38:16.

and a well landed dismount. You can see him relishing in that pressure,

:38:17.:38:20.

which says a lot about him as a gymnast. So chasing Verniaiev, he

:38:21.:38:25.

wants to stay ahead of James Hall as well. But what a competition he has

:38:26.:38:31.

had. One slight hiccup in the middle. But your going to get that.

:38:32.:38:42.

One last gymnast to go. 14.4 then for Dalaloyan. He has definitely got

:38:43.:38:46.

silver, but James Hall is guaranteed a bronze. Fantastic. And I think

:38:47.:38:53.

Verniaiev has got his work cut out here. So then the last gymnast, the

:38:54.:39:01.

current all-round champion, looking to retain his title with this high

:39:02.:39:08.

bar routine. He has had one difficult combination successfully

:39:09.:39:18.

performed. Mixed grip. Swings out of it nicely. ? Hand stand, goes t

:39:19.:39:27.

correct way. He maintains the swing so well. Once he relaxes a little.

:39:28.:39:38.

He has been so tense today and edgy. Hen he relaxes, he is such a

:39:39.:39:44.

well-timed gymnast. Come on here, make it to the clean dismount. Just

:39:45.:39:51.

the step. This is going to be very tight. Yeah, he was 0.8 ahead of

:39:52.:39:58.

Dalaloyan going into this. It is going to be close. But we think it's

:39:59.:40:05.

-- enough. I think it is enough as well. He made an error on that turn

:40:06.:40:13.

but managed to regrip his hand. We have watched some of the high bar

:40:14.:40:17.

workers catching close. He understands how to work the high bar

:40:18.:40:24.

and swing it. His in bar work is clean. Might not be his best piece,

:40:25.:40:29.

but I think a well deserved European champion. A big deal to come to try

:40:30.:40:35.

and retain that title. Maybe that was the reason why he wanted to keep

:40:36.:40:44.

going. 14 scored. It is enough. He retains his title. As the finest

:40:45.:40:55.

all-round gymnast in all of Europe. Even with the little adjustments, it

:40:56.:41:01.

was a stylish routine. He just upped it a bit as well. But what about

:41:02.:41:07.

that, James Hall, first major competition for GB, picks up a

:41:08.:41:14.

bronze. Wait and see how Joe Fraser. At 19 might even be in the top ten.

:41:15.:41:20.

What an outing for Great Britain. There is your top three. James

:41:21.:41:25.

hasn't got a flag! Get up there, son. Just hold up your track suit

:41:26.:41:33.

top! That will do! I'm not saying he wasn't expected to win! But that

:41:34.:41:37.

will do. Confirmation of the results of the the all-round final.

:41:38.:41:47.

If it was a man of the match, it has got to be Joe Fraser. I don't know

:41:48.:41:56.

what he had or the breakfast. It must have been porridge. James Hall

:41:57.:42:02.

at twenty one, gets his opportunity in is in men's all-round final and

:42:03.:42:07.

he makes his mark with a bronze medal. I'm trying to compose myself,

:42:08.:42:15.

I can't believe it. Third place, I have been to World Cups and I have

:42:16.:42:21.

always hit fourth, fifth or sixth. To come to a European Championships

:42:22.:42:26.

and do my best and come away third, it's... I can't get my head around

:42:27.:42:35.

it. Sum up the season so far. Speechless. I'm speechless. Me and

:42:36.:42:41.

James, it is our first senior major and this is not something we

:42:42.:42:45.

expected to do. When we have come here and showed the whole of Europe

:42:46.:42:48.

that we are about and what we are capable of. We are just so happy.

:42:49.:42:56.

Looking further ahead, it is World Championship, no Max Whit lock, you

:42:57.:42:59.

will think you have staked a claim to be in the team? 100%. They're

:43:00.:43:04.

great gymnasts, but they have got their work cut out and I'm chasing

:43:05.:43:13.

them. You can't stop me. A word from you, as the captain of the British

:43:14.:43:18.

team, how proud you must be and what you think it means for James. Yes, I

:43:19.:43:24.

think from start to finish he looked so calm and composed from every

:43:25.:43:28.

apparatus and got stronger and stronger as the competition went on.

:43:29.:43:32.

I think for him, this sort of competition is going to lift his

:43:33.:43:37.

confidence and his motivation to get back in the gym. Do you think he has

:43:38.:43:43.

needed that? He has been plugging away and this is his opportunity.

:43:44.:43:49.

Now he needs to build on this. I've full faith he will. Beth, he is only

:43:50.:43:55.

21. It feels like he has been around for a long time. But this could be

:43:56.:44:03.

his chapter. He has always been there or thereabouts, but I just

:44:04.:44:10.

think it the shows what a good position British gymnastics is in to

:44:11.:44:15.

take out the big names and still have that strength in-depth. To come

:44:16.:44:20.

home with a third and a fifth place and Joe is only 18. What do you

:44:21.:44:24.

think it showed about Joe being there? From a competition and

:44:25.:44:30.

composure perspective. To go from that junior to senior can be a big

:44:31.:44:34.

leap and he has done it within 12 months and for some that can be

:44:35.:44:39.

quite overwhelming to walk into a stadium and compete alongside the

:44:40.:44:43.

likes of Verniaiev. He took it in his stride. He has that character

:44:44.:44:49.

that is very chilled out. So I think that's played to his strength and he

:44:50.:44:53.

has been able to go and do his routines as he does in the gym. And

:44:54.:44:57.

Verniaiev, it is quite something to have no rest from Rio, to come out

:44:58.:45:05.

and retain that title snoochlty he just - - He just keeps going and he

:45:06.:45:12.

was under pressure and we saw that where he took the stumble. But he

:45:13.:45:14.

took the title. James polls medal was relatively

:45:15.:45:25.

unexpected, but Ellie Downie made history as the first British gymnast

:45:26.:45:30.

to qualify for all the finals, a lot of pressure and expectation, this is

:45:31.:45:33.

how she was feeling head of these championships.

:45:34.:45:42.

I think I just go out there and feel quite confident in myself now, cos

:45:43.:45:50.

we know how many routines we've done in the gym, how many times we have

:45:51.:45:54.

competed, even if performances do not go to plan, you know that you

:45:55.:45:57.

can do those skills but you just have to put everything aside and

:45:58.:46:01.

concentrate on that, and definitely all these competitions have just

:46:02.:46:04.

helped me go into every other competition. I have always been good

:46:05.:46:12.

at vaults, so I think when I was about 13, I started doing dumb are

:46:13.:46:19.

competing, and I'm 17 now, still doing the same vault, so I think

:46:20.:46:24.

when I go into competition, it is totally second nature, I can just

:46:25.:46:29.

relax. Well, not relax, but I know what I'm doing, I think about

:46:30.:46:33.

sticking the landing. But yeah, vault is my special piece, really.

:46:34.:46:37.

Ever since I was little, I have always done floor tumbles, four, and

:46:38.:46:45.

we have gone down to three, we have upgraded it, my old first tumble is

:46:46.:46:48.

now my second, so we have added some new ones, added a couple more

:46:49.:46:54.

difficult leaps, and I have a new choreography for this year which I

:46:55.:46:57.

really love, the crowd really get involved, and it is different for

:46:58.:47:02.

me. I am not want to perform, as in like facial expressions and stuff,

:47:03.:47:05.

and this time I have to work hard to get that in, and I think it

:47:06.:47:09.

definitely helps, I think the judges and the crowd love it. After Rio, I

:47:10.:47:14.

was not too pleased with my performances, they could have gone a

:47:15.:47:19.

lot better, so probably for about a month I really shot off from

:47:20.:47:21.

gymnastics and took a step back. But as soon as my coach was like, you

:47:22.:47:27.

ready to come back in the gym? Yeah, I am, and I wouldn't say I enjoyed

:47:28.:47:31.

it, but I was looking back to getting back to full fitness,

:47:32.:47:37.

getting on the bars, and I did miss it when I wasn't in the gym. I would

:47:38.:47:41.

probably say I have never enjoy the the -- enjoyed it more than I am

:47:42.:47:47.

now. I worked really well with my coach, having Becky there is even

:47:48.:47:51.

better, and I just think we are really into our training now, which

:47:52.:47:55.

ain't smart, we train well, just to make sure we are as ready as we can

:47:56.:48:02.

be for competitions. -- we train smart, we train well.

:48:03.:48:11.

Got the green light, needs to be something powerful, attacks, yet

:48:12.:48:18.

Janco, double twist, that is a cracking vault right down the

:48:19.:48:23.

middle. Plenty of high corrupting, legs glued together, that is why she

:48:24.:48:27.

was second in the all-around in the qualifications. Hands go quickly to

:48:28.:48:37.

the platform, blocks of lovely and clean, two twists, textbook really,

:48:38.:48:44.

not giving too much away to the judges. 14.600 from Kovacs. You can

:48:45.:48:54.

see the determination in the eyes of Ellie Downie. Nice little smile, but

:48:55.:49:05.

it is down to business. Last few words to herself, come on, Ellie,

:49:06.:49:12.

powerful attack, double twist, what about that?! That has answered the

:49:13.:49:21.

question! Slight adjustment on the landing but absolutely magnificent

:49:22.:49:26.

vaulting. She blocks so well, dead straight arms, launches up into the

:49:27.:49:31.

air, waits for the twist, really cleanly round. 14.566, she is in

:49:32.:49:44.

second at the moment. Dos Santos from France, the gymnast has

:49:45.:49:50.

qualified for the bars final, so she will make everything absolutely

:49:51.:49:54.

right, this is their chance to get her all-around competition off to a

:49:55.:50:03.

flyer. Dos Santos from France, seventh highest qualifier. Starts

:50:04.:50:08.

well from the lower bar, transfers to the high, great stooping

:50:09.:50:17.

Tkatchev, down to the low bar. Good in the handstand, back to the low

:50:18.:50:21.

bar, got to squeeze the back, good turn there, and into the invert,

:50:22.:50:30.

great half turn. Winds up to the dismount, can she hang on? Full

:50:31.:50:34.

twisting double back! Well, what a guest mount! Superstar there on the

:50:35.:50:42.

bars. Well, a very good bar routine, really showed a good variety of

:50:43.:50:47.

skills. One moment in the middle, but she did well to pull it back,

:50:48.:50:53.

Chris. She did indeed, she showed lovely inverse swings. Double

:50:54.:50:55.

straight with full twist, one of the most difficult dismounts you will

:50:56.:51:02.

see. Let's hope we are staying with Alice

:51:03.:51:37.

on the floor, Christine, do you want to talk us through this?

:51:38.:51:41.

LAUGHTER Come on, Alice! Come on, Alice! She

:51:42.:51:47.

did it very well yesterday, just the same, please. Important spin coming

:51:48.:51:57.

up, she needs to control this. That was good. And she starts with a

:51:58.:52:03.

difficult combination tumble. Needs to focus hard, one and a half walk

:52:04.:52:10.

out into the two and a half, nicely landed.

:52:11.:52:17.

Now, this time a triple twist, one of the most difficult tumbles for

:52:18.:52:22.

her. Cleanly done! Now, every gymnast has to include a

:52:23.:52:33.

leap series, this is the leap series, jetee, change league half,

:52:34.:52:40.

into the splits. These days they have to include a

:52:41.:53:02.

forward somersault, just a little hop. Also has to include a double

:53:03.:53:06.

somersault, which she has not done yet. So a big test here, needs to

:53:07.:53:11.

land this double pike well. She does. Well done, Alice, that was a

:53:12.:53:21.

great second piece! What a superb performance, and you have to

:53:22.:53:25.

remember, up until a few days ago, Alice didn't realise she was going

:53:26.:53:30.

to be here! So, I mean, she is doing incredibly well, when you consider

:53:31.:53:35.

that, Chris! Yes, very proud of her, she came out at a moment's notice,

:53:36.:53:41.

no warm up on the podium, just got stuck straight in. 12.800 for Alice

:53:42.:53:48.

Kinsella's floor, happy with that, coach? The same as yesterday, so it

:53:49.:53:53.

must be very consistent! Onto the leader of this competition at the

:53:54.:54:03.

moment, Zsofia Kovacs, the first gymnast to go, Ellie Downie will be

:54:04.:54:08.

next. So start on the lower bar, stoop in, Paul turn, a little bit

:54:09.:54:15.

late, nice release. Down to the low bar, coach hovering, not needed.

:54:16.:54:21.

Back up to the high bar, as do Path, little split of the legs, pipe

:54:22.:54:30.

Jager, France somersault. -- front. Can she hang on for the dismount? A

:54:31.:54:35.

little bit of a stumble on the landing, so that will cost her

:54:36.:54:42.

slightly. But a very good routine. Plenty of difficulty. Felt a little

:54:43.:54:47.

rushed for me, I don't know why, just forcing it? Do you know? I

:54:48.:54:51.

don't think it helps to have the coach hovering, it makes you think

:54:52.:54:56.

she is anxious about it, but a very nice stoop half, changes to its

:54:57.:54:59.

travel position for the dismount, up into a very nice high full twisting

:55:00.:55:07.

double back. Still in the lead, Kovacs, 14.333. And now it is the

:55:08.:55:18.

turn of Ellie Downie. Only four pieces of apparatus, this is the

:55:19.:55:26.

second one. Needs to hold her nerve. Opting to start on the lower bar,

:55:27.:55:34.

nice hop in the handstand, stoop on half turn. Great tip there to the

:55:35.:55:38.

high bar, straight into the clear circle Tkatchev, big, difficult

:55:39.:55:45.

routine. Full turn, into another Tkatchev, straight to the low bar,

:55:46.:55:53.

working well, good in the handstand, there is the half turn, back to the

:55:54.:55:58.

top bar, come on, Ellie! Hold an! Kicks for the dismount, double

:55:59.:56:06.

layout, well done indeed! Very, very strong! Well, she was in second

:56:07.:56:11.

going into this performance. Well done, Ellie! Yes, very, very

:56:12.:56:20.

determined throughout that. I mean, for me it didn't feel like she was

:56:21.:56:24.

in any doubt of coming off there. She has really pleased this routine

:56:25.:56:29.

together well, and she has got a routine that she is comfortable

:56:30.:56:33.

with, really. She is not always so confident on the pirouette skills,

:56:34.:56:36.

which is what his sister is particularly good at, and they have

:56:37.:56:40.

just put one in near the beginning, but that this mount is lovely. --

:56:41.:56:52.

dismount. She is in second half way round. Thorsdottir now, a gymnast

:56:53.:56:59.

with quite a bit of experience at 18 years old, 12th in the last

:57:00.:57:02.

all-around competition here at the Euros. Good line in the handstand on

:57:03.:57:13.

the low bar, lovely from the hide to the low. Handstand nice, transfers

:57:14.:57:22.

with the half turn, full turn into the handstand, very clean.

:57:23.:57:30.

Forward long swing into the straddle France somersault, that is the

:57:31.:57:37.

Jager, back into the handstand. Oh, out of alignment, I think she caught

:57:38.:57:41.

the bottom bar, that just stopped the momentum for that backward long

:57:42.:57:46.

swing. She had done all the hard work, this was a relatively simple

:57:47.:57:53.

link. You looked at the commitment, she was driving through that

:57:54.:57:57.

routine, and it seems so out of character, that moment. Yes, very

:57:58.:58:02.

out of character, because she is a precise gymnast, you can see. Well,

:58:03.:58:06.

she was in third, but I'm afraid, after that,... That is a mark

:58:07.:58:13.

straightaway, back onto the bars for the dismount, a bit late now, but

:58:14.:58:17.

full twisting double back in the tuck position. Well, what a shame

:58:18.:58:22.

for that routine, because after that point, beautiful and elegant. Very

:58:23.:58:28.

much so, and you can see on her face and her coach's face, it is so easy

:58:29.:58:33.

to do, you do the difficult stuff, you think, right, I am there, then

:58:34.:58:42.

something catches you out. Even the easiest thing is difficult if you do

:58:43.:58:45.

not pay attention to it. How do you train for that moment? Hopefully

:58:46.:58:49.

they do and when they are quite young, and you say, remember this

:58:50.:58:53.

day, you will not finish until you are finished, do not pledge of

:58:54.:58:56.

concentration go until you are sitting on the seat waiting for the

:58:57.:59:02.

score. 12.366 is the result of that, 15 years old, Eremina from Russia.

:59:03.:59:11.

Starting on the top bar, straight into handstand, must be something

:59:12.:59:18.

big. Huge straight Tkatchev, down to the lower bar. Back up, a little bit

:59:19.:59:23.

of daylight split on the half turn, but look at the handstand line, that

:59:24.:59:29.

is good. Nice and pace, I into the front, Jager somersault. That looked

:59:30.:59:43.

available later from this angle, dismount will come. Well, classy bar

:59:44.:59:49.

work. Very classy, that is the skill of the championships, the straight

:59:50.:59:53.

Tkatchev here. This is the stoop, and if you do not put your feet on,

:59:54.:59:58.

so it is a stoop, that goes at a level for everything. That was a

:59:59.:00:00.

nice dismount, wasn't it? Eremina 14.3. Into third. This

:00:01.:00:17.

confirmation as it stands, half way round. Not much room between the top

:00:18.:00:22.

two. First up Great Britain, Ellie

:00:23.:00:38.

Downie, currently in second place. This the third piece of four. Just a

:00:39.:00:47.

quiet start. She needs to get her rhythm and keep it.

:00:48.:01:00.

Very nicely through the first somer salt with the split jump. This is

:01:01.:01:11.

the skill that is so hazardous. Yes, she has nailed it. There is still

:01:12.:01:17.

plenty to do. Needs to focus on this leap series. Change leg. Change leg

:01:18.:01:26.

half. And here another very difficult skill, double spin. Oh,

:01:27.:01:34.

well done Ellie, she held on there! You have to join two acrobatic

:01:35.:01:43.

skills. This is our back flip and lay out. Again, she is fighting. Two

:01:44.:02:03.

jumps. One more acrobatic. The free cartwheel Just building for the

:02:04.:02:08.

dismount. Big focus. Make the round off, plant the feet. Two and a half

:02:09.:02:13.

twists. What a great finish. That was excellent. She could have fallen

:02:14.:02:17.

off that double spin as easy as easy. She probably limited it to a

:02:18.:02:22.

0.5 deduction. She fought every step of the way there and she wasn't

:02:23.:02:28.

giving that away. She knows she is very much in contention for a medal.

:02:29.:02:39.

Absolutely. Oh, my word! 13.06 6 and it goes into the lead at the moment.

:02:40.:02:45.

Oh, my word. One piece to go. Floor left for Ellie Downie. Down to the

:02:46.:02:50.

others now. It is and you know she has thrown that down to them.

:02:51.:02:56.

Watching the young French gymnast. A step out of floor! Don't seem to

:02:57.:03:03.

have the music. That is because this was happening just moments ago with

:03:04.:03:12.

Dos Santos on floor. Another unsteady landing.

:03:13.:03:28.

That was a bit low. That is the sort of deduction the judges will make if

:03:29.:03:40.

a leap is a bit low. Straight font, full twisting front. This is very

:03:41.:03:52.

popular this spin in the crouch position as well. You have to

:03:53.:04:02.

include at least three spins and leaps in the eight moves. Super

:04:03.:04:09.

double tack, that was her best landing of the routine.

:04:10.:04:19.

Kim Bui is next to go. Made the bars and the floor finals.

:04:20.:04:31.

She 12.7 in qualification. Very experienced gymnast. Using a very

:04:32.:04:38.

difficult mount. Back flip and Sommer saument. --

:04:39.:04:57.

somer salt. That is our acrobatic series done. Many gymnasts opting

:04:58.:05:02.

for that as a series. Two leaps. They have to join the two leaps. And

:05:03.:05:07.

include the full spin. Passage of dance down on the beam.

:05:08.:05:14.

Another requirement. Such a test of balance and

:05:15.:05:31.

consistency. So important to do every move exactly the same. Each

:05:32.:05:42.

time. Little wobbles. Those are all the marks that add up, the little

:05:43.:05:49.

wobbles are deducted from the 10 execution score. And a relatively

:05:50.:05:55.

quiet dismount. A straight gainer off the end. Much more difficult

:05:56.:05:59.

than it looks, because you have to travel away. A fighting performance.

:06:00.:06:06.

But she will be happy that she finishes without a fall.

:06:07.:06:16.

So Eremina, in third at the moment. Oh, and she is off straightaway. And

:06:17.:06:24.

I'm always amazed when you're such a beautiful gymnast as she is that you

:06:25.:06:29.

use that big mount. Because, look, that is beautiful work. A mount like

:06:30.:06:37.

that is so difficult. Just a little hesitation there. But what a shame.

:06:38.:06:46.

She really is so classy. All the technique is correct. You know, she

:06:47.:06:51.

has dead straight legs. Toes pointed. She is beautifully supple,

:06:52.:07:00.

so her hips are square. Well I'm not sure they would count that, though I

:07:01.:07:05.

was hoping she was hoping for it to be called a full turn and a jump. It

:07:06.:07:09.

was a half and a half turning on the beam. Nice splits leap. She is edgy.

:07:10.:07:17.

Not surprisingly, because having had a fall. There is the change leg leap

:07:18.:07:23.

and the split dump that didn't actual -- jump that didn't actually

:07:24.:07:30.

hit splits. Disappointing performance. Still a lot of very

:07:31.:07:41.

good work and now a big dismount. Lovely triple twist to finish.

:07:42.:07:44.

Beautifully performed. But the damage was done at the beginning.

:07:45.:07:50.

Such a difficult mount to the beam. I like the mount, but you say packed

:07:51.:07:53.

with difficulty. There is the layout. Acrobatic series, more

:07:54.:08:00.

precise on that and you wonder, start with something simpler and

:08:01.:08:03.

build up. She has got the work there and then it made her a bit edgy for

:08:04.:08:10.

the rest of the performance and stands up, big dismount, triple

:08:11.:08:13.

twist. This is is where it will hot up. Kovacs, when you think of the

:08:14.:08:22.

next piece of apparatus and Downie has a half a mark up on difficulty.

:08:23.:08:28.

A mark from qualification. So she is going to have to pull something out

:08:29.:08:32.

of the bag here. Pressure is really on this routine. The leader then.

:08:33.:08:46.

And nice quiet mount. Gets herself on to the beam. Lovely free walk

:08:47.:08:57.

over. Strong. Change leg quarter. Showing the side ways piece of dance

:08:58.:09:01.

that all the gymnasts have to include. Little pause. Back flip and

:09:02.:09:18.

lay out securely done. Oh, a little shy on that change leg half. You

:09:19.:09:27.

have to show the splits. Very nice side somersault. She floated that.

:09:28.:09:32.

Quite a classical gymnast. And good free cartwheel. Very nice

:09:33.:09:46.

technically. We haven't seen any big major skills here. Up for the

:09:47.:09:54.

dismount. Good strong double tuck. She didn't give much away, but the

:09:55.:10:01.

start score will not be massive. Ellie scored 13.06 for beam. So keep

:10:02.:10:11.

your eyes peeled. In qualification her difficulty was 5.1. 13. 466 is a

:10:12.:10:19.

big score. Keeps her in the lead at the moment. Ahead of Ellie Downie.

:10:20.:10:23.

Alice has moved up now into sixth place.

:10:24.:10:35.

Interesting stuff. This 0.667 between first and second at the

:10:36.:10:46.

moment. We join Kim Bui in fifth. This her floor routine. Strong,

:10:47.:10:55.

powerful gymnast. Super double straight opener.

:10:56.:11:03.

Just a double tuck in the middle. Going for safety.

:11:04.:11:28.

The leap series. And she whips that extra half turn in well.

:11:29.:11:44.

And the two and a half twist, fulfilling the requirements.

:11:45.:11:57.

Out to the corner, smoothly into this final tumble. This is a clean,

:11:58.:12:05.

confident routine. Very good, Kim Bui. Well 13.16 6 in qualification.

:12:06.:12:14.

5.2 on the difficulty. She has the got the power and the tumbles. Happy

:12:15.:12:19.

with that in fifth. She has qualified for floor. If you like

:12:20.:12:23.

that routine, you can see it again. Watch the tumble here. Plenty of

:12:24.:12:32.

power. Big tumble, double straight. For any jam -- gymnast an expressive

:12:33.:12:37.

routine and a confident performance and power at the end. That is the

:12:38.:12:42.

second tumble. The double tuck. I think this is the double pike to

:12:43.:12:48.

finish. Nice and high. 13.4 for Kim Bui. Just a reminder, Kovacs was

:12:49.:12:57.

leading and Downie was in second and Eremina third. So on to the gymnast

:12:58.:13:09.

in third place. Eremina from Russia. Qualified third for the floor final.

:13:10.:13:12.

Can she get up to second with this? Well landed, full twisting double

:13:13.:13:35.

back. The judges will deduct for that. They will probably credit. But

:13:36.:13:47.

a nice split on the leap. One and a half, the walk out. Into the two and

:13:48.:13:49.

a half. Really well performed. Got that easy style. A big long

:13:50.:14:28.

pause. Big tumble coming up. Double tuck. And a step out of the floor.

:14:29.:14:42.

Well not so completely secure, but it Wurz very elegant -- was very

:14:43.:14:51.

elegant, nicely performed. Bui the gymnast behind her scored 13.4. That

:14:52.:15:00.

was a good high score. Certainly applies the pressure. Eremina 13.3.

:15:01.:15:12.

This is Christine's gymnast, I am sure you feel a long way away from

:15:13.:15:21.

her sitting here in Manchester! I do, one more piece. I am going to

:15:22.:15:29.

let you do this, Christine, come an! She needs to hit a good handstand,

:15:30.:15:35.

she does, needs to turn with control. Oh! I cannot think the last

:15:36.:15:40.

time she missed that in competition. Such a long time. What a shame. Cos

:15:41.:15:45.

no she doesn't have a forward element either, so that is a big

:15:46.:15:50.

shame, because she has worked on all her difficult pieces. Well, emotions

:15:51.:15:57.

will be running high for her right now, I am so sorry, Chris. No,

:15:58.:16:03.

goodness, that is sport, she did it beautifully yesterday to qualify,

:16:04.:16:07.

she probably has also seen where she lives. Flight down to the low bar,

:16:08.:16:16.

legs locked together, smoothly up to the high bar, beautiful handstand,

:16:17.:16:22.

shapes, actually. Into a nice double pike, good landing, such a shame,

:16:23.:16:26.

because she just went for the arm stretch and missed it, but she has

:16:27.:16:35.

had a great championships. Now it is the turn of Zsofia Kovacs, who is

:16:36.:16:40.

leading this competition as it stands. She scored 12.837 in

:16:41.:16:47.

qualification. This is her bid for a gold medal.

:16:48.:16:56.

Elegant, quiet start, nice full turning jump.

:16:57.:17:05.

Good strong double straight somersault.

:17:06.:17:22.

Full twisting double back, it is all in there.

:17:23.:17:48.

Just a relatively simple spin but cleanly through the loops. Full

:17:49.:17:56.

twisting front. Relatively simple, but it has to be included, the

:17:57.:17:58.

forward somersault. Needs this big final tumble, double

:17:59.:18:18.

tag, it is a good landing. -- tuck. Well, you have to say this young

:18:19.:18:25.

lady has been very consistent, very calm, very controlled in all of her

:18:26.:18:31.

performances today. And very cleverly constructed routines as

:18:32.:18:35.

well, it means she hangs onto a good amount of difficulty but can execute

:18:36.:18:39.

them beautifully, this is going to be a tough challenge to beat.

:18:40.:18:50.

13.033, so she is the gymnast to beat for Ellie Downie, who will be

:18:51.:18:56.

next to go on for. She needs more than 13.570 to go ahead of Eremina

:18:57.:19:02.

and steel that bronze. A bit of pressure, can she do it? It is going

:19:03.:19:08.

to be the double twist Yurchenko. Oh, beautiful height there! Just

:19:09.:19:13.

over cook sit a little bit, but super flight on the top of that

:19:14.:19:18.

vault, wraps in for the double twist, huge bounce back, such a

:19:19.:19:22.

spread knee, dynamic gymnast, Christine. She really is, so much

:19:23.:19:30.

height and flight, she almost cannot control it. Dos Santos goes up into

:19:31.:19:40.

second. And up Ellie goes. She has got to go for broke. Easy leap. Come

:19:41.:19:51.

on, Ellie, big first tumble! Double twisting double tuck, lands easily.

:19:52.:20:01.

And this is the difficult tumble that is essential, the one one half

:20:02.:20:10.

walk out into the double Arabian. A little stutter, but she holds on.

:20:11.:20:42.

Come on, Ellie! Big tumble, double pike, puts her feet down

:20:43.:20:46.

beautifully. Here is the big leap to finish.

:20:47.:21:03.

Well, a grade from a routine, you can see the emotion there. -- well,

:21:04.:21:12.

a great floor routine. Do you know what? She fought, and the two steps,

:21:13.:21:17.

it was a good compromise, to be fair. She has really held that

:21:18.:21:23.

emotion in and harvested today, very good performance. Look at that!

:21:24.:21:34.

Ellie Downie has done it! She is the new all-around European champion!

:21:35.:21:40.

She makes history as the first gymnast ever from Great Britain to

:21:41.:21:44.

take gold in an all-around European gymnastics final!

:21:45.:21:56.

European champion Elissa Downie! I actually have no words, that was

:21:57.:22:37.

one of the hardest competitions I have done, I was quite tired from

:22:38.:22:42.

yesterday, so to come back out and do my routines, I felt different

:22:43.:22:46.

this time, the bars went well, but was shaky, and then floor, I tried

:22:47.:22:53.

to nudge them and not watch anybody else's routine, just focus on my

:22:54.:22:58.

own. After my second tumble pass, I wasn't sure, but I would have been

:22:59.:23:02.

happy with second. When the score came through, I was speechless, I

:23:03.:23:07.

don't have words. What did your sisters say to you? She was

:23:08.:23:12.

speechless as I am, she just said, massive well done, she had my mum on

:23:13.:23:16.

face time with my brothers and sisters, it is a massive thing, I

:23:17.:23:18.

didn't realise how massive it was. Well, it will settle in, but what a

:23:19.:23:28.

title, we have talked at length about the fact that this is the

:23:29.:23:33.

first time that a British gymnast, male or female, has meddled like

:23:34.:23:36.

that, got gold in the all-around, what does it mean, to break the fact

:23:37.:23:43.

that it has never happened before? It is massive, she had qualification

:23:44.:23:48.

the days before, the girls had a tough qualification schedule, she

:23:49.:23:52.

competed late in the afternoon, then do all four pieces. She also

:23:53.:23:58.

qualified first, so looking at the medal table, I could be stood on the

:23:59.:24:02.

podium. A lot of the pressure will have come from within her, she

:24:03.:24:07.

wanted to replicate. She had a tough build-up to the competition,

:24:08.:24:10.

nationals a couple of weeks ago, she landed short. She had to take a bit

:24:11.:24:17.

of time off to rest. So to go out and perform, you could see the

:24:18.:24:21.

relief, every time she did a piece, OK, one down, move onto the next. We

:24:22.:24:28.

will have another look at her floor routine, chasing for the whole

:24:29.:24:33.

competition. She was, but we knew she had a powerful floor routine

:24:34.:24:38.

which she has upgraded this season, great to see the first tumble,

:24:39.:24:42.

double back with double twist, hugely difficult. Then the fact that

:24:43.:24:46.

her second tumble is what most people cannot even use as their

:24:47.:24:51.

first, one and a half in two double Arabian is difficult enough on its

:24:52.:24:55.

own. When you are very familiar with! To second, she was going for

:24:56.:25:02.

the landing, you saw her stagger back, and she spoke about it in the

:25:03.:25:07.

interview, she was thinking, have I done enough? Budget has got the

:25:08.:25:11.

composure to carry on and really sell this routine. -- but she has

:25:12.:25:16.

got. She seems to really enjoy performing it. It seems, I don't

:25:17.:25:23.

know what you think, Kristian, but psychologically, the fight within

:25:24.:25:26.

her, it is really going to help going forward, competing with the

:25:27.:25:31.

Americans, for example. Absolutely, she is already performing way above

:25:32.:25:36.

her age category, only 17 years old, a lot of people forget that. She

:25:37.:25:40.

went out, that was the last apparatus, at the two days of

:25:41.:25:45.

training, there will be mental and physical fatigue, and she has got

:25:46.:25:49.

the grit between her teeth to pick herself up, keep pushing, keep

:25:50.:25:53.

fighting, and I think, the way that she can carry on training, if she

:25:54.:25:57.

can keep on top of it, she has mentioned about the training, a good

:25:58.:26:02.

back at home, with her coach and his sister, if she stays on top of that,

:26:03.:26:08.

I think the sky is the limit. And we have to talk about Alice Kinsella,

:26:09.:26:13.

who finished tenth and fell, and she wasn't expecting to even be part of

:26:14.:26:19.

the European Championships. No, she was back at home, she missed the

:26:20.:26:24.

podium training, which for most gymnast is the opportunity to get

:26:25.:26:27.

used to the equipment. She literally flew out, 30 seconds on each piece,

:26:28.:26:34.

made the all-around final, then went into it with nothing to lose, and

:26:35.:26:38.

her performances really showed this. It was a real shame to have that

:26:39.:26:42.

fall on bars, but the fact that she got back up and finished the

:26:43.:26:48.

routine, you can see it here, very little deduction, credit to her

:26:49.:26:51.

strength of character, to be able to do that. And maybe without that

:26:52.:26:56.

fall, she could have finished around fifth place, but she was there

:26:57.:27:00.

because of an absence with Amy Tinkler, so do you know what is

:27:01.:27:07.

happening with Amy? So she is back in the gym training, she had some

:27:08.:27:12.

time-out after Rio, a bit like Max has done, but she's not quite back

:27:13.:27:16.

to full fitness, so she decided to stay at home, get the training. The

:27:17.:27:20.

World Championships, for most of these girls, is the big game. The

:27:21.:27:25.

Europeans is a nice stepping stone, but it is better to stay at home and

:27:26.:27:29.

get fully fit, get out to Canada at the end of the year. It is nice that

:27:30.:27:34.

gymnasts can make the selectors think, all exciting stuff! So having

:27:35.:27:39.

crowned the all-around champions, it is now time for the specialists to

:27:40.:27:43.

show what they can do out in Transylvania. The top eight gymnasts

:27:44.:27:47.

after qualification are competing in each of the apparatus finals, and

:27:48.:27:52.

qualifying for the men's floor for Great Britain is another new face,

:27:53.:27:53.

Dominick Cunningham. What is your experience been like in

:27:54.:28:06.

Romania so far? I thought it would be a massive difference, being at

:28:07.:28:10.

the European Championships, I always here it is different, but it does

:28:11.:28:15.

always been the same, my boys, my coach, come out, do your job, go

:28:16.:28:19.

back and rest. It has been nice, it has been really good. You seem to be

:28:20.:28:24.

quite outgoing, because when you do well, it looks like you know about

:28:25.:28:30.

it! That is right! All the hard work that we have put in, it is nice to

:28:31.:28:38.

see it pay and the day, lots of different changes, even the day

:28:39.:28:40.

before, having to change things a tiny bit, different speeds, so it

:28:41.:28:46.

has been nice to watch it come off in competitions. What is it like, in

:28:47.:28:51.

the last few years, it must have been tough watching other people

:28:52.:28:56.

being in the team? I have been fighting for this position for a

:28:57.:29:02.

long time, getting World Cup medals on floor and vault, it is all about

:29:03.:29:07.

making progress, this experience, it just shows that I am on this stage,

:29:08.:29:12.

I have got this opportunity, and I need to grab it. So that is what I

:29:13.:29:17.

have done yesterday, I am in the finals now, no more games, I am 21,

:29:18.:29:20.

I am not in the sport for ever. Dominick Cunningham for Great

:29:21.:29:39.

Britain opens the floor final. Dominick Cunningham, Great Britain.

:29:40.:29:49.

Can he hold the nerve? First tumble, it will be big, double twisting,

:29:50.:29:54.

double back in the straight position.

:29:55.:30:01.

One and a half twists, into the double twist. Really powering in the

:30:02.:30:09.

difficulties. Double twisting, double back, again in the tuck

:30:10.:30:14.

position. Just that slight adjustment on landing, but going

:30:15.:30:19.

well so far. High into a double front. That is a very difficult

:30:20.:30:28.

skill to land. Down into the circle work. We see this on the pommel

:30:29.:30:35.

horse. Known as the Russian Wendy. They have to hold two seconds.

:30:36.:30:44.

Works well. Two and a half twists, into the one and a half. Great

:30:45.:30:53.

connection. Come on Dominic, hold on! Into the triple twist, takes the

:30:54.:30:59.

landing well. Dominic Cunningham, what a start. There is his coach Lee

:31:00.:31:06.

Walls, applauds a very good start. Such a dynamic, spatially aware

:31:07.:31:25.

gymnast. This was a good balance of difficult work and good landings.

:31:26.:31:32.

Really nicely done. The triple twist at the end, so clean and so well

:31:33.:31:35.

landed. 13. 14.3. A defendanty -- difficulty

:31:36.:31:42.

of 6. Artem Dolgopyat, 20 years of age

:31:43.:32:03.

from Israel. Second gymnast. Powerful double front somersault

:32:04.:32:24.

with the half turn. Difficult opening tumble. Full twist into the

:32:25.:32:32.

two and a half. That wasn't just round. So that will be a big

:32:33.:32:42.

deduction. Much better there. Double twisting, double back. A bit of a

:32:43.:32:48.

nrvey start. -- nervy start. That's better. Two and a half into the

:32:49.:32:59.

double twist. One and a half into the one and a half with ease. It

:33:00.:33:05.

looked like a bit of a stumble there. Down into the circle. Swing.

:33:06.:33:17.

There is the sound. Final tumble. Got to hold the concentration.

:33:18.:33:27.

Stands up, trim twist. Difficult routine. But there were errors. Just

:33:28.:33:36.

a bit of a nervy performance. He has got some lovely qualities though.

:33:37.:33:45.

Difficult for these young gymnasts. It is a difficult format. Straight

:33:46.:33:50.

out with no warm up and huge tumbling. This hand spring with the

:33:51.:33:56.

half turn, that was a fabulous opening landing. He got a little

:33:57.:34:04.

more anxious as time went on. This was the step back and the step out.

:34:05.:34:15.

He tried to recover it. Only a 0.1 for stepping out. That is where the

:34:16.:34:26.

marks go. Certainly got the difficulty, 6.3 in qualification.

:34:27.:34:35.

6.3 again. A 14.333. He goes into the lead ahead of Dominic

:34:36.:34:44.

Cunningham. Shatilov from Israel, second Israeli gymnast in the final.

:34:45.:34:54.

Known as the tall one, six foot. Oh, very good opening tumble. Double

:34:55.:35:00.

pike, front somersault with half turn. Good in the twist there. Two

:35:01.:35:07.

and a half into the double twist. Gymnasts allowed to combine two

:35:08.:35:13.

tempo elements. Better there. That is the double twisting, double back

:35:14.:35:21.

in the tuck position. Nice combination. 30 years of age and

:35:22.:35:32.

showing all of his experience. Very clean double twist. Locked those

:35:33.:35:47.

feet together in the Wendy swing. Going well so far. That is the

:35:48.:35:53.

sound, the final tumble. Can he hold on? Full twisting double back with

:35:54.:36:00.

ease. He's happy with that one. What a performance from Shatilov on the

:36:01.:36:06.

floor. As you said, showing all his experience there. Knows all about

:36:07.:36:13.

this format, having to control the bounce of floor. Thrilled with that

:36:14.:36:17.

performance. And there's the fist tumble. That was quite a low

:36:18.:36:23.

landing. He had to hop forward at the end of it. But that was really

:36:24.:36:33.

the only landing that was low. Super combination, three somersaults in a

:36:34.:36:41.

row. Hops the heels together there. Lovely and precise in the shape. Off

:36:42.:36:48.

his hands. Lifts up into the air. Very impressive final tumble. Full

:36:49.:36:53.

twisting double back. He was happy with that. Qualified in third place.

:36:54.:37:03.

The door's open now. Well he's happy with that. That puts him into the

:37:04.:37:08.

lead. A 6 difficulty, but the highest execution so far. 8.4. Home

:37:09.:37:20.

crowd favourite, Dragulescu, the most experienced gymnast in the

:37:21.:37:23.

competition. 36 years of age. Such a power chl gymnast. Double

:37:24.:37:39.

front, half turn to start. Rebounds out the floor. Into the twist

:37:40.:37:52.

combination with ease. Linking three skills together.

:37:53.:37:57.

Full, into the two and a half. Making it look easy. Lift to hand

:37:58.:38:13.

stand. His first Olympicing in 2000 - Olympics in 2004. Good there.

:38:14.:38:20.

Stands up, triple twist, shoulders high on the landing. One of the most

:38:21.:38:26.

difficult routines you will see in the final. A full twist into a one

:38:27.:38:33.

and a half. He is going for broke. Qualified in second place. He needs

:38:34.:38:38.

to hang on. If he is going to add another title. Come on! Double

:38:39.:38:44.

twisting, double back, just that little adjustment on landing, but

:38:45.:38:48.

what a routine from this 36-year-old. Fantastic. He has lost

:38:49.:38:54.

none of that power and enthusiasm for the sport. That was a great

:38:55.:39:03.

performance. Actually there is his old team mate who is now the

:39:04.:39:08.

national coach. That proves how old he is. What about that? Lovely

:39:09.:39:17.

technique. Nigh travels on those twisting tumbles. And his landing

:39:18.:39:26.

was so secure and strong. Have to hold that balance. Which he does

:39:27.:39:31.

beautifully. And the final tumble of double twisting double back to

:39:32.:39:33.

finish with is very impressive. Nadia Komenech there. He is the only

:39:34.:39:53.

gymnast apart from her to win four European gold medals. He may beat

:39:54.:39:58.

her if he gets one here. He will make history for Romania. And he has

:39:59.:40:09.

done it. 14.5. Top score today. A 6.2 in difficulty. Well, that's made

:40:10.:40:16.

it all worthwhile for Romania. What a great performance from Dragulescu.

:40:17.:40:29.

This young man is something special. Dimitri Lankin from Russia. Keep

:40:30.:40:40.

your eyes open. The new kid on the block. He is 20 years of age. Stands

:40:41.:40:50.

up. A triple back somersault, yes, that is three somersaults on the

:40:51.:40:53.

floor, the highest difficulty you can get. Good in the twist. Three

:40:54.:40:59.

and a half full twist, a bit snatched on the full. There we go

:41:00.:41:09.

again. A little adjustment on the landing. This is the most difficult

:41:10.:41:16.

routine of the finalists. Double Arabia with half out.

:41:17.:41:23.

Wide arm. Japanese hand stand. He has got so much power. Straight

:41:24.:41:39.

front into a double front. Good combination. Triple twist. Little

:41:40.:41:52.

adjustment. It might have been the most difficult, but it has certainly

:41:53.:41:56.

not been the cleanest for me. But what an exciting performer. Well,

:41:57.:42:00.

the best triple back on the floor area I have seen. Really something

:42:01.:42:10.

special. This young generation of Russians look very exciting. Not

:42:11.:42:14.

quite the finished article at the moment, but wow, he is going to be.

:42:15.:42:21.

He is going to be difficult to beat in the future. Just count the somer

:42:22.:42:26.

salts, one, two, three and he just made it look like he had done a

:42:27.:42:32.

standing tuck back at the finish. Super three and a half twist into

:42:33.:42:38.

front full. Just a little stutter. Really super work. He is very good

:42:39.:42:43.

at twisting. But those landings weren't quite so secure. That is

:42:44.:42:48.

where the marks will be thrown away. His difficulty score will probably

:42:49.:42:53.

be the highest. But will his E score? I doubt it. Good finish. 14.

:42:54.:43:16.

466. Puts him into second. Execution down in the 806. But it was a

:43:17.:43:23.

special routine. And Romania take their first medal of this

:43:24.:43:31.

Championship. Marian Dragulescu, 37, still got all the power and the

:43:32.:43:34.

enthusiasm for the sport. Gold medallist. So Dragulescu takes the

:43:35.:43:42.

gold. Really such a high level final. That

:43:43.:43:56.

was fantastic. Your first senior major final? It was fantastic. I did

:43:57.:44:02.

another good job. A few landings not out of control, but it was great and

:44:03.:44:07.

did a good job for the team and I'm happy to walk away from qualifying

:44:08.:44:13.

in eighth to coming into fifth and only two tenths off a gold. You have

:44:14.:44:18.

got the vault tomorrow. Confident about that? Yes, I'm excited to get

:44:19.:44:26.

out on to vault, knowing how I enjoyed it and the crowd were behind

:44:27.:44:30.

me. I like being out there. I'm looking forward to being so close to

:44:31.:44:35.

a medal. I hope to start grabbing the medals. The crowd went crazesy

:44:36.:44:42.

when Dragulescu got the gold? Yes when you're doing your routine it is

:44:43.:44:47.

silent and it is just the way to control it. It felt like I was at

:44:48.:44:52.

home in the gym. When he got gold it was fantastic to see it. He is 37 I

:44:53.:44:56.

believe, so he is still going. Hopefully that is what I will be in

:44:57.:45:00.

a few years with that gold medal as well. Let's hope so. That is the

:45:01.:45:06.

thing, getting fired up and you don't know how you're going to

:45:07.:45:10.

compete when you get into the arena. If you can add that extra spark and

:45:11.:45:13.

fire? I think Dragulescu has been known

:45:14.:45:27.

for that, you could see from his celebration, you can see how much it

:45:28.:45:31.

means to them, the crowd loves, Romania loves sin, so to be coming

:45:32.:45:36.

away at his age as European champion, absolutely incredible,

:45:37.:45:41.

what an ambassador for the sport. Kristian, you won that title back in

:45:42.:45:50.

2015, you are 28, whom doing it again now at 37, 36, 37, that is

:45:51.:45:55.

some accolade. It really is, and full credit to him, it is is her

:45:56.:46:01.

lifestyle, you have to make sure you are eating correctly, having the

:46:02.:46:05.

right sleep, your family life is correct. Everything about it would

:46:06.:46:08.

revolve around gymnastics. All those details matter, they all add up to

:46:09.:46:12.

those big performances. Full credit to him to be able to not just train

:46:13.:46:17.

but do every little detail, pay attention to those details, and that

:46:18.:46:22.

is why he is still where he is, at that top level. We talked a little

:46:23.:46:26.

bit about the changes in the code, the chapel backs and everything, we

:46:27.:46:31.

get the chance to see that, and Dmitrii Lankin does not even start

:46:32.:46:36.

in the corner of the floor when he does this. It is just incredible, to

:46:37.:46:41.

see tumbles like this, you hope the younger gymnasts will look up to

:46:42.:46:45.

those skills and think, obviously, with that difficulty comes risk, can

:46:46.:46:50.

you nail the landings? We were just chatting about the difference in the

:46:51.:46:53.

floor final, the difference was whether you took a step or not.

:46:54.:47:00.

Obviously, the floor has drastically changed, even in the last five or

:47:01.:47:05.

six years, it is more bouncy, so you will see bigger skills coming in. Is

:47:06.:47:14.

there a possibility of a quad? He had a lot of hype there, he might

:47:15.:47:19.

have practised it. I am 100% certain he will have done it at some point,

:47:20.:47:24.

training into the foam pit. The way that the sport is going, the way it

:47:25.:47:28.

is moving forward, everyone is trying to move the sport on, make it

:47:29.:47:33.

more appealing to the crowd, so no doubt, somewhere in the near future,

:47:34.:47:40.

there will be a quad coming in. The mind boggles, it really does! Still

:47:41.:47:45.

lots more finals to come for you this afternoon, most of which

:47:46.:47:49.

involve Ellie Downie, and the next challenge is vault. She was superb

:47:50.:47:56.

yesterday, she got a great start in the all-around competition, there we

:47:57.:48:00.

go, look, plenty of height, just what you need to get the competition

:48:01.:48:05.

off to a flying start. She is no stranger to the vault medal podium

:48:06.:48:10.

at the European Championships, winning silver last year.

:48:11.:48:20.

Representing Netherlands, Volleman. And most gymnasts opting for their

:48:21.:48:33.

favoured vault first, this is the double twisting straight Yurchenko.

:48:34.:48:43.

Powers down the runway, two twists, a little bit and tidy on the legs,

:48:44.:48:49.

but lots of height, chest was well up on landing. A little bit and tidy

:48:50.:48:58.

with the feed, a little adjustment on landing. Good height, and that is

:48:59.:49:06.

what they look at, blocking from the top, a bit of a split in the feed,

:49:07.:49:12.

down for landing. Beautiful straight arm block, which is what gives her

:49:13.:49:16.

the hide in the air and the time for the twists. 14.400 for Tisha

:49:17.:49:28.

Volleman, first vault. Here comes the second vault, 5.2. Remember, has

:49:29.:49:37.

to be the forward entry this time, she went on backwards last time.

:49:38.:49:44.

Same powerful run, the halve turn, the straight front, halve turn,

:49:45.:49:50.

nicely done, down the middle. Really efficient vault by this young

:49:51.:50:00.

gymnast. Very powerful round off, there is the half turn, good contact

:50:01.:50:07.

with the hands, well within the zone. Super second vault. Really

:50:08.:50:13.

does block from the top. If anything, just a little bit and tidy

:50:14.:50:22.

with the feed on both vaults. Yes, but much better with direction,

:50:23.:50:27.

confident landing. We have to keep our eye on the screen to see if they

:50:28.:50:32.

show the second vault and the average all in one. An average of 14

:50:33.:50:41.

plus, 13.967 in qualification. I think that might well have been

:50:42.:50:46.

better, that was really good. So second vault, 14.100 gives an

:50:47.:50:53.

average of 14.125, Tisha Volleman is the current leader in this women's

:50:54.:51:00.

vault final. Elissa Downie, Great Britain! Next on to vault,

:51:01.:51:05.

representing Great Britain, it is Ellie Downie. Well, we saw her

:51:06.:51:11.

perform fantastically yesterday, as she got enough in the locker to do

:51:12.:51:16.

it again today? Really good power, but for hide and left, lovely

:51:17.:51:21.

landing, no doubt about it at all. -- beautiful height and lived.

:51:22.:51:27.

Beautiful double twist, she has enormous power and style. The judges

:51:28.:51:33.

making their assessment. This is the best block so far for me, legs and

:51:34.:51:40.

feet she absolutely went for broke on that landing, and I think the

:51:41.:51:44.

legs went a little bit. Anybody else would have buckled, but it just

:51:45.:51:53.

proves the determination. Double twist, solid first vault for Becky

:51:54.:51:58.

Downie. Ellie Downie, sorry, in the excitement! So that was her

:51:59.:52:04.

favourite vault, the one she used for the all-around competition. And

:52:05.:52:09.

you are doing four pieces of apparatus, you only need to do one

:52:10.:52:14.

vault, only in the finals do you need to do two. The score for the

:52:15.:52:26.

first vault, 14.4 00. So this also will be the half turn, and needs to

:52:27.:52:34.

show control and commitment here. Big round off, turns along, blocks,

:52:35.:52:40.

lovely straight body shape, super vault, that really was classy. GB

:52:41.:52:54.

supporters in the crowd. Showing some real consistency now in her

:52:55.:53:00.

gymnastics, look at this, so powerful, have turn, handspring

:53:01.:53:04.

blocks, plenty of time to spot the flaw. The locked together, legs

:53:05.:53:14.

straight. -- feet locked together, legs straight. Good body shape,

:53:15.:53:19.

Chester well up. Well, it was tough to come out here, not too long,

:53:20.:53:25.

certainly less than 24 hours after creating history. 14.350 average for

:53:26.:53:35.

Ellie Downie, moves into first place.

:53:36.:53:42.

The Hungarian gymnasts have been very good at these championships so

:53:43.:54:04.

far, this looks determined, powerful, strong, lovely double

:54:05.:54:10.

twist, legs crossed a little bit, which the judges will deduct four,

:54:11.:54:18.

but bags of energy and flight. Here we go, we can see again, really

:54:19.:54:23.

blocked off the top, probably the highest double twist we have seen so

:54:24.:54:29.

far, certainly got the height. As you said, Chris, just a little bit

:54:30.:54:33.

of a split on the feet, so the judges will pick that up, a little

:54:34.:54:39.

hop on the landing. Judges looking for height, flight and length. I

:54:40.:54:49.

think most of the ladies are doing the double twist Yurchenko in this

:54:50.:54:54.

final. Yes, to be a serious contender these days, you need to be

:54:55.:54:59.

at least double twisting this vault. They get such good flight off the

:55:00.:55:07.

top. The score comes in for Devai, Hungary, 14.400 for the first vault.

:55:08.:55:15.

So far, it is the second vault that has divided the gymnasts. Very

:55:16.:55:24.

similar scores for the first vault for them all so far. Really attacks,

:55:25.:55:35.

oh, and that was a very nice vault as well, half turn, straight shape

:55:36.:55:40.

in the air, they are delighted with that. Absolutely delighted!

:55:41.:55:56.

This was exceptionally well performed, executed better, in my

:55:57.:56:04.

mind, than the first vault, straight down the middle, good block, she

:56:05.:56:10.

really does contact the top of the horse well, and transfers that into

:56:11.:56:15.

height, which gives you a lot more time to spot the landing and have

:56:16.:56:22.

less deductions. Beautiful straight body shape in the air. So moves into

:56:23.:56:32.

second place, 14.317 average for Devai from Hungary. Next up,

:56:33.:56:40.

representing Russia, Maria Paseka. This is the gymnast with the

:56:41.:56:45.

pedigree and the big vault, although starting with the quieter one, half

:56:46.:56:50.

turn on, straight front, not the best of what we have seen today. She

:56:51.:56:58.

started with the slightly less difficult vault, she has been

:56:59.:57:02.

training a very difficult to land a half twist Yurchenko in training,

:57:03.:57:05.

although she did not compete it in finals. -- two and a half twist. Of

:57:06.:57:13.

big legs split on the half turn, then the pike down and the step to

:57:14.:57:20.

the side. We have seen her perform vault better than that. You can see

:57:21.:57:23.

somebody in the crowd was thinking exactly the same! And I think that

:57:24.:57:29.

is a vault she struggles with, even though it is the easier one, she has

:57:30.:57:33.

opted to get it out of the way first while she is fresh. But going for

:57:34.:57:38.

the big second vault. Olympic medallist on vault. Watching

:57:39.:57:48.

anxiously for the score to come in. Well strapped ankles, hips. Wrists.

:57:49.:58:01.

Wrists. Score comes in, Maria Paseka, 14.033 for the first vault.

:58:02.:58:11.

So she has posted the 5.8 difficulty, this is the two and a

:58:12.:58:14.

half twist in straight somersault off the vault. Flips, lifts, two and

:58:15.:58:24.

a half twists, and she makes it, a little stutter backwards, but a

:58:25.:58:27.

clean landing, cleanly through the twists. Lots of relief in the

:58:28.:58:32.

Russian camp there. It is a big vault, this, highest

:58:33.:58:47.

difficulty, Yurchenko, blocks, two and a half twists, deep in the

:58:48.:58:51.

landing, still with the legs split, did very well to save the landing

:58:52.:58:59.

there. 14.412 in qualification, so she needs every bit of that if she

:59:00.:59:07.

wants to take the vault title. Current leader is Ellie Downie, 14.3

:59:08.:59:15.

50. You saw the judges there with their pencils, writing down the

:59:16.:59:19.

deductions they can see. Obviously, she can afford to have more

:59:20.:59:23.

deductions because the tariff is higher. It was out of 15.8, that

:59:24.:59:29.

vault, so the deductions are taken off that 15.8. Of the score comes

:59:30.:59:39.

in, not good enough today, average of 14.283 points Paseka into third

:59:40.:59:50.

place. So representing France, Coline Devillard. And we have seen

:59:51.:59:57.

great work from the French gymnasts this championships, and a super

:59:58.:00:03.

handspring straight front with one and a half twists, lovely vault

:00:04.:00:06.

there. Lovely vaulting there. Little tiny

:00:07.:00:18.

gymnast compared to the others. But loads of power. Certainly packed

:00:19.:00:23.

with power. Look at that huge block off the top. Wraps in, one and a

:00:24.:00:28.

half twists, straight down the middle. Combination of two vaults.

:00:29.:00:35.

These are the highest scoring vaults, difficulty-wise in this

:00:36.:00:40.

final. Should score well. And the coach giving her a bit of advice for

:00:41.:00:45.

the second vault. Full of passion and advice, you can see from the

:00:46.:00:50.

practice she is probably going to flip on for this one. These gymnasts

:00:51.:00:58.

showing good variety of vault. We have seen a huge hand spring vault.

:00:59.:01:12.

The score is big 14.6. Second vault. Well, if she can watch this second

:01:13.:01:17.

vault too the first, she's in with a shot. Political party on. Double

:01:18.:01:24.

twist. A little bit wild. But a very good vault. That could, that could

:01:25.:01:32.

be a winning vault. Don't sit on the fence Christine! She's even done a

:01:33.:01:41.

celebration dance. They must do that in France as well. A double twist

:01:42.:01:47.

and such a powerful vault from a little gymnast. If anything, arms a

:01:48.:01:53.

little bit skewed on the top. But with that big first vault of 14.633.

:01:54.:02:00.

I think this is good enough to go into first place. She posted the

:02:01.:02:04.

highest score of anybody for the first vault and that was a second

:02:05.:02:10.

vault equal in value, which no one else has managed to produce. The

:02:11.:02:15.

coach seems to think she has done enough. There we have cop firm -

:02:16.:02:26.

confirmed 14.467. To Devillard of France. Just 17, will be crowned the

:02:27.:02:36.

European vault champion. And huge scenes of emotion here and quite

:02:37.:02:42.

interestingly France, Great Britain and Hungary on the podium again.

:02:43.:02:45.

Exactly the same as in the all-round. Difficult gymnasts, but

:02:46.:02:50.

they're the countries making the noise here. Ellie Downie had to wait

:02:51.:02:56.

until the end. Held first place until the last gymnast. But she

:02:57.:03:03.

knows that the French girl had a higher tariff second vault and that

:03:04.:03:05.

is really what made the day. Here is the moment then that Ellie

:03:06.:03:44.

Downie gets medal No 2 and remember, she qualified for every single

:03:45.:03:49.

final. So she must be feeling pretty exhausted. More from her at bars

:03:50.:03:56.

final to come. Let's reflection on the vault final. We saw the majority

:03:57.:04:01.

of them opting for the same vault. Yes and I think that is what

:04:02.:04:05.

separated the French girl out. She had the first vault that was higher,

:04:06.:04:10.

that gave her the edge. The Russian girl for second did try and had

:04:11.:04:20.

those staggers back. Christine, as a world vault medallist, yourself, how

:04:21.:04:24.

do you prepare yourself for that second vault. Both have to be

:04:25.:04:30.

different. They must feel different. Yes, I think from my own experience,

:04:31.:04:39.

no matter whether the vault was good or bad, you have to compose

:04:40.:04:46.

yourself. There is a lot of anxiety to get started and perhaps rush on

:04:47.:04:51.

the technique. So I found it helpful to think about the basics, think

:04:52.:04:55.

about one thing you have got to do right and clear your mind. Well it

:04:56.:05:01.

worked for Devillard. Without the presence of Lewis Smith or Max

:05:02.:05:08.

Whitlock, it is no surprise the other pommel horse workers in Europe

:05:09.:05:12.

are relishing the opportunities. It has been nine years since a British

:05:13.:05:17.

gymnast hasn't been in the pommel final. But the Hungarian Christian

:05:18.:05:31.

Berki is back. Here is how the top eight got on.

:05:32.:05:44.

First gymnast. Starts with the single leg work. Picks up that.

:05:45.:05:51.

That's the double leg circle. Good extension. The hips above the horse.

:05:52.:05:59.

That builds the difficulty. The flop series. Into hand stand. Keeps the

:06:00.:06:05.

momentum going. This is difficult work. Good difficult work between

:06:06.:06:11.

the handles. That is a Russian circle. Travelling backwards again

:06:12.:06:20.

on the end. On again. Travels forwards. If the gymnasts are

:06:21.:06:28.

slightly skewed, the hand back, there is a deduction. But working

:06:29.:06:35.

well, into the hand stand pirouette. A good start. That was a good

:06:36.:06:50.

routine from Merdinyan from Armenia. It is always nervy to be the first

:06:51.:06:55.

person. But he did well. He controlled the nerves. He kept his

:06:56.:07:09.

rhythm. That was a very good opening performance. The only thing I can

:07:10.:07:14.

see there is the deduction for his shoulders not being in line. The

:07:15.:07:19.

skewing is I was talking about, something the judges are picking on,

:07:20.:07:24.

and that will be 0.3 for every circle. So he has the difficulty.

:07:25.:07:29.

It's the execution. His difficulty was 6 ppt 1 in qualification. --

:07:30.:07:40.

6.1. So a different set of judges now. At big championships like this,

:07:41.:07:49.

you have different set and the judges will have to be countries

:07:50.:07:55.

without people in the finals. 14.833. Good execution. That is a

:07:56.:08:02.

big score to set down for the first performer.

:08:03.:08:17.

Great Russian gymnast. Very compact gymnast. Straight into the hand

:08:18.:08:28.

stand. Interesting one handle work there. That is the flop sequence

:08:29.:08:39.

that brings difficulty. Really difficult work. Full spindle. Notice

:08:40.:08:49.

how he keeps the momentum going. Feet locked together. Travelling

:08:50.:08:54.

backwards. Height above the pommel and the hips. That is good. No

:08:55.:09:01.

problems there. Pirouette in the hand stand.

:09:02.:09:14.

David Belyskiy does well. He has not contested the all-round. But he has

:09:15.:09:24.

been the leader of the Russian team for the past few years. That was a

:09:25.:09:29.

signature move on the one arm. Lovely style. You can see the

:09:30.:09:36.

extension through the hips. Holds the body out. Technically a very

:09:37.:09:43.

good gymnast. Swings smoothly up into the hand stand. That is what

:09:44.:09:49.

you want to see for the dismount. The coaches are happy. If you can

:09:50.:09:54.

keep your coaches happy, then you have done all right. Certainly if

:09:55.:09:58.

you were my coach, I wouldn't want to upset you! But he picked up a

:09:59.:10:03.

silver in the 2016 Europeans. He is going to have to work hard to push

:10:04.:10:18.

Berki today. 15.1 puts him into first. He is very happy with that

:10:19.:10:21.

performance. And here the master of the pommel

:10:22.:10:35.

horse. Won everything. Tremendous pommel horse worker from Hungary,

:10:36.:10:44.

Christian Berki. 5'10". Six European titles. Three world titles and the

:10:45.:10:56.

Olympic champion from 2012. Extension, separation on that single

:10:57.:11:02.

leg work. Superb. Picks up into the double circles. Working the one

:11:03.:11:13.

handle. And again. Great extension. Feet locked together. Russian circle

:11:14.:11:19.

between the handles. Down to the end and travels along the horse. A

:11:20.:11:29.

master at work. Forward travel. Magyar into the back toward travel,

:11:30.:11:34.

up into the hand stand. Well, that is how you do a pommel routine.

:11:35.:11:53.

Berki from Hungary. Absolute class. Beautiful style. Beautiful line.

:11:54.:12:00.

Swings with such a good, straight body. A tall gymnast. It is more

:12:01.:12:08.

impressive when you can see how long he is. 15.2 in qualification.

:12:09.:12:20.

Certainly looked good to me. And we have a long line of traditional good

:12:21.:12:30.

pommel workers. Talk about the move the Magyar travel, performed by

:12:31.:12:40.

Magyar from Hungary many years ago. Interestingly his difficulty score

:12:41.:12:52.

was below that of Belyavsskiy in qualifying. It was executed superbly

:12:53.:12:57.

and I think that should go into the lead. Pretty confident on that. But

:12:58.:13:08.

how much? Could be European title No 7. You don't have to be a pommel

:13:09.:13:18.

expert to notice class and style of his work. From the start with the

:13:19.:13:26.

single leg separation. To the tempo of the routine. The judges... There

:13:27.:13:36.

is six of them. Two counting the defendanty. -- difficulty. Four

:13:37.:13:45.

evaluating the mistakes. And it's second for Berki. A 9 in execution.

:13:46.:14:02.

6.2 in difficulty. A bit below. The winner is David Belyavskiy. There

:14:03.:14:11.

was some confusion over why Berki didn't get the gold there and if you

:14:12.:14:16.

could see on the graphic it said there was a penalty of 0.3, because

:14:17.:14:21.

he didn't start within the time aloud at the beginning. And give

:14:22.:14:26.

everybody an idea, you have a green light. Your name comes up and it

:14:27.:14:31.

would have a red light. As soon as it turns green, you have 30 seconds

:14:32.:14:37.

to start. So obviously we didn't see the scoreboard, but it looks like he

:14:38.:14:42.

has gone over that 30 second and gets a penalty. If you go over one

:14:43.:14:46.

minute you're not allowed to start. He was able to continues, but lost

:14:47.:14:51.

that three points. We can look back at the footage. Because he had his

:14:52.:14:57.

back to where the green light was that he was unaware. It has gone

:14:58.:15:01.

green there. Yes, as Beth said you have the 30 seconds and I mean once

:15:02.:15:10.

you walk to the actual pom ever horse, he -- pommel horse he has his

:15:11.:15:16.

back to it and he is not aware of what time the clock is on. And

:15:17.:15:20.

somebody with his experience you would think he is aware of how long

:15:21.:15:24.

he has got and that probably is something like this wouldn't happen

:15:25.:15:29.

with someone of his experience. But it is very unfortunately.

:15:30.:15:35.

I feel sorry for him, he a dad, coming back as a husband and father

:15:36.:15:43.

to try to get this title again, number seven, and as far as his

:15:44.:15:48.

gymnastics were concerned, he won. It is a new cycle, the judges have

:15:49.:15:53.

all just taken exams, so all of the rules are fresh in their minds, so

:15:54.:15:57.

any deduction they will be looking to take it. Unfortunately, he will

:15:58.:16:01.

be kicking himself tonight to know that technically he was the best,

:16:02.:16:07.

and to lose it, it didn't even look like we were just wondering whether

:16:08.:16:10.

he was warming up, not quite ready. But it looks like he was looking up

:16:11.:16:15.

at the scoreboard in the ceiling, not aware of the one behind him. He

:16:16.:16:21.

has just lost track of time. Well, Belyavskiy is a class act, if you're

:16:22.:16:25.

going to give it to anyone, give it to him, I suppose. It was

:16:26.:16:29.

interesting watching that without any British entry! Absolutely! I

:16:30.:16:34.

think Belyavskiy stepped up to the mark, he has got that consistency

:16:35.:16:39.

that he bats lacked earlier, but he is stepping up and producing these

:16:40.:16:43.

big result in a regular basis, definitely a force to be contended

:16:44.:16:47.

with an pommel horse over this next cycle leading up to Tokyo. Women's

:16:48.:16:52.

bars now, and it is not just Ellie Downie who is handy in the gym, her

:16:53.:16:58.

sister also holds two European titles and has been a big part of

:16:59.:17:03.

the British team for many years. She is outcompeting alongside her sister

:17:04.:17:07.

on bars, and here is her take on her new routine.

:17:08.:17:13.

Qualifying was actually pretty good, the routine I put out, I think I did

:17:14.:17:22.

a good job, considering. There is a potential upgrade that we could put

:17:23.:17:27.

in for the final, an extra 0.10, but I know I will be placed last, I can

:17:28.:17:32.

make the decision on what everyone else has done before me and just

:17:33.:17:35.

enjoy it. I have got a brand-new release at the end of my routine.

:17:36.:17:40.

The routine that I was working all the way up to Rio, or at least the

:17:41.:17:51.

last two years working up had a major release, and sometimes it paid

:17:52.:17:54.

off, but at Rio I called my feet on the bar, the same other World

:17:55.:17:57.

Championships, and I wanted that risk to go. As a result, we had to

:17:58.:18:03.

change my old release, put that at the start, and then learn a new one,

:18:04.:18:08.

so it has been a quick process, I have only been doing it for four

:18:09.:18:12.

months, so I am pleased I have got it in, we have taken the starting

:18:13.:18:16.

value down a bit to put this new skill in, then we'll rebuild the

:18:17.:18:18.

routine in a different way. Representing Great Britain, Ellie

:18:19.:18:41.

Downie. Well, she has had some sort of schedule here, Ellie Downie, hops

:18:42.:18:46.

into the forward grip, every gymnast has to show a forward grip, into the

:18:47.:18:53.

Tkatchev, short clear Tkatchev, now the all-important fall pirouette,

:18:54.:18:57.

cleanly into the stoop Tkachev, down to the Pak salto, really fitting it

:18:58.:19:04.

all in now, up with the half turn, cleanly over the bar. Super

:19:05.:19:11.

handstand shape, just the dismount to negotiate, a little hop back,

:19:12.:19:18.

well done, Elie! Well done, Ellie, a third day in a row, producing that

:19:19.:19:23.

big spectacular bar routine. Very impressive work. Great resilience.

:19:24.:19:30.

What a championships she is having, look at the flight there, up to the

:19:31.:19:36.

top bar, clear circle into the Tkatchev, difficult work. You can

:19:37.:19:43.

see the hand placement, straight into another Tkatchev, down to the

:19:44.:19:50.

lower bar, and this is a big this amount, the double layout, great

:19:51.:19:59.

extension, adjustment on landing. Shoot trusted herself, she let it

:20:00.:20:04.

go, she let it flow. She didn't try to fight it. When you are weary, as

:20:05.:20:10.

she must be why now, three days of competition, that is the only way to

:20:11.:20:15.

go - trust yourself, work with the apparatus, and she surely did that

:20:16.:20:23.

today. She scored 14.266 in qualification. I think the pirouette

:20:24.:20:28.

was a little bit later today, the pirouette is meant to try and finish

:20:29.:20:33.

in handstand or as close to. The score comes in, 14.133 for Ellie

:20:34.:20:40.

Downie, that puts into first place so far.

:20:41.:20:48.

Representing Hungary, Zsofia Kovacs. This is the gymnast who went head to

:20:49.:20:58.

head all away with Ellie Downie yesterday, ended up with the silver

:20:59.:21:02.

medal, but she is a complete gymnast. Good first handstand,

:21:03.:21:10.

lovely stoop in and out with further pirouette as well, straight into the

:21:11.:21:17.

Pak salto down to the lower bar, but she missed the connection. And that

:21:18.:21:23.

is disappointing to see, she didn't fight to carry on. She would have

:21:24.:21:29.

hoped to have gone down to the low bar immediately back up to the high

:21:30.:21:33.

bar, but the move down to the low bar has to be so precise to be able

:21:34.:21:37.

to get your feet in for the next bit. 30 seconds to re-mount on the

:21:38.:21:46.

apparatus, otherwise there is a deduction. Here we go. So now feed

:21:47.:21:56.

on, with the half turn, the flight to high bar with the half turn,

:21:57.:22:05.

stoop in and out, front somersault, and negotiate that well. Just the

:22:06.:22:11.

dismount now, here it comes, for all twisting double back in the term

:22:12.:22:15.

position. That was a shame, you would normally hope that the gymnast

:22:16.:22:18.

would have been able to work out and just take an extra upstart

:22:19.:22:23.

handstand, but she obviously felt too far off balance to manage that.

:22:24.:22:29.

May be day three of competition starting to show a little bit in the

:22:30.:22:37.

all-around performers. As you can see, great height and flight up to

:22:38.:22:43.

the top bar, some good turns in the handstands. Just the timing, down to

:22:44.:22:49.

the low bar. Big wind-up, for a boost. Double back dismount. The 0.1

:22:50.:23:01.

for coming from the apparatus will cost her dearly. Yes, these gymnasts

:23:02.:23:07.

have had a huge schedule, this is their third day in a row, and, just

:23:08.:23:12.

as for Ellie, her second final of the day. They will be happy to put

:23:13.:23:17.

their feet up now for the rest of the day before they start again

:23:18.:23:22.

tomorrow. Tomorrow, yes, I was going to say! Ellie is back on again

:23:23.:23:28.

tomorrow on the floor. And the beam. In fact, she is doing everything!

:23:29.:23:36.

The score comes in, 13.100 for Zsofia Kovacs of Hungary.

:23:37.:23:50.

Representing Russia, on the uneven bars, Elena Eremina. Watch this

:23:51.:24:00.

first skill, absolutely straight over the bar, immediate Pak salto,

:24:01.:24:07.

lovely, lovely original work, the half turn just lost the legs a

:24:08.:24:12.

little bit, a tiny gymnast to make that, but the stoop work is

:24:13.:24:18.

beautiful. Lovely high front somersault, the gymnast have to use

:24:19.:24:24.

a forward grip move, that was hers. Second pirouette was a little bit

:24:25.:24:29.

late, lovely dismount, though, so clearly off the bar, the twist put

:24:30.:24:34.

in now. We didn't have a great angle, but the pirouette looked

:24:35.:24:38.

late. It certainly did, we might get a better view from the side. What a

:24:39.:24:45.

start to the routine, fabulous. I recognise that man comedy you,

:24:46.:24:51.

Christine?! Yes, already! There you go, huge into the straight Tkatchev,

:24:52.:24:56.

down straight to the low bar, there we can see the double back for all

:24:57.:25:01.

turn in the second somersault. Junior European champion in 2016,

:25:02.:25:10.

all-around. Big, big talent from Russia. Beautiful, unusual bar work

:25:11.:25:16.

as well, that skill is probably the skill most people have been talking

:25:17.:25:20.

about in the championships, the way she does it, the absolutely straight

:25:21.:25:26.

body. Same on the Aegerter somersault as welcome as she has

:25:27.:25:29.

obviously got a real feel for the bar. -- the Jaeger somersault. She

:25:30.:25:45.

scored 14 -- 14.300, she goes into first place. Bruma a little bit down

:25:46.:25:56.

on her start value, but this is the girl to watch. Representing Germany,

:25:57.:26:00.

Elisabeth Seitz on the uneven bars. Top qualifier and a really explosive

:26:01.:26:15.

routine, lovely handstand, but look at the height and the flight,

:26:16.:26:21.

beautiful in the straddle position, just the Aegerter a tiny bit bent

:26:22.:26:27.

armed on the hop, but lovely work now. That pike is so difficult, but

:26:28.:26:35.

I think she missed a connection have to take an extra upstart handstand

:26:36.:26:44.

that will affect her start score. She floats off the bar, gives

:26:45.:26:48.

herself so much time, for all pirouette into full twisting double

:26:49.:26:52.

back, but a big step on landing, she has opened the door a little bit, a

:26:53.:27:00.

couple of errors. I certainly agree, we have seen some great bar work,

:27:01.:27:04.

but lots of opportunity for deductions there. That free swing, I

:27:05.:27:10.

think she should have gone straight down with the Pak salto to the low

:27:11.:27:17.

bar. There we go. High in the straddle, the somersault, that was

:27:18.:27:22.

the good work, stoop, half turn, fall twist on the dismount. And that

:27:23.:27:29.

big adjustment on landing and the late for all turn, I think, will be

:27:30.:27:35.

very costly. A great gymnast for Germany over the years, great

:27:36.:27:42.

success, represented at them at Olympics, and really is very

:27:43.:27:46.

explosive on the bars. She has just got that sort of power, she works

:27:47.:27:51.

the bars so well. But just a couple of areas there that the judges could

:27:52.:27:57.

deduct, and we will see. She had a 6.1 difficulty in qualification, but

:27:58.:28:07.

I think not linking the Tkatchev to the Pak will have... The score comes

:28:08.:28:19.

in, 14.133 for Seitz of Germany. They

:28:20.:28:26.

Representing Belgium on the uneven bars, Nina Derwael. In

:28:27.:28:37.

qualification, she tied with Seitz for the top spot, lovely lines,

:28:38.:28:43.

superhigh Tkatchev, this is the big combination, watch, catches in mixed

:28:44.:28:47.

grip, straight down to the low bar, really well the go she ate it. And

:28:48.:28:53.

then back up, beautifully flighted. -- really well negotiated. Lovely

:28:54.:29:02.

with the half turn, that is one of the best we have seen. All

:29:03.:29:07.

pirouette, nice and clean on top of the bar, full twisting double back,

:29:08.:29:11.

that was a very clean routine. If she gets her 6.1 start, it will be

:29:12.:29:18.

difficult to better. Well, what a routine from the young Belgian

:29:19.:29:23.

gymnast there! So clean, graceful, and the way she floated between the

:29:24.:29:31.

bars. There we can see, banging handstand, lovely line, feet locked

:29:32.:29:37.

together there, and interesting, the Tkatchev with half turn to mixed

:29:38.:29:43.

grip down to the low bar, connecting to the full turn before the

:29:44.:29:48.

dismount. I think that is the best we have seen so far. Very clean

:29:49.:29:59.

execution, Craig, I think that was. Needs 14.300 zero go joint with

:30:00.:30:07.

Eremina. I think she could be close to her qualifications go, what do

:30:08.:30:09.

you reckon? Scores look like they're tighter in

:30:10.:30:16.

qualification. It is a different set of judges. If you have got a gymnast

:30:17.:30:21.

in the final, you can't have a judge on the floor. It has to be judged by

:30:22.:30:31.

a different group. It is 14.633 for Nina Derwael of Belgium. We have a

:30:32.:30:38.

new leader. And an emphatic leader. That is a big score. Defending

:30:39.:30:48.

European champion, representing Great Britain. Becky Downie. She

:30:49.:30:56.

knows the routine of her life is needed to hold on to her title.

:30:57.:31:02.

Starts with the forward element on the low bar. That was clean. Up to

:31:03.:31:06.

the high bar. This is the big series. In the straddle position.

:31:07.:31:15.

Full pirouette, lovely. And again. And she links it. She knows she has

:31:16.:31:21.

got to. Keep her head. This is the big new combination coming up. Here

:31:22.:31:27.

is the move. And she just didn't have quite enough flight to get her

:31:28.:31:32.

hands over the bar. And I think she... Is hurt. The doctor and

:31:33.:31:43.

physio on hand. It was going so well. Here we go. Up... Oh yes she

:31:44.:31:51.

put her hand down as she fell and it looks like she has hurt her wrist or

:31:52.:31:58.

her elbow. But she is up and walking and... That is a very great shame to

:31:59.:32:05.

finish the uneven bar final in that manner. There we have confirmation.

:32:06.:32:13.

First place, remitting Belgium, it is Nina Derwael.

:32:14.:32:29.

Another couple of medal, but in your time, your sister fell, tell us what

:32:30.:32:37.

you know happened? I'm not sure what she has done. She has been having a

:32:38.:32:42.

couple of niggles in training so, I wasn't sure what it was when she

:32:43.:32:46.

fell. I just felt gutted for her. She has worked so hard, as hard as

:32:47.:32:55.

me and today was for her and me. Difficult to celebrate your medals,

:32:56.:33:03.

but you did get a have I verse and -- silver and bronze. The vault I

:33:04.:33:07.

was happy with, I was in first until the last girl and she deserved it.

:33:08.:33:13.

Her straults were -- vaults were tidier than me. I have happy to let

:33:14.:33:19.

her have that title. The bars was so unexpected. If Becky had gone

:33:20.:33:25.

through she would have knocked me into fourth. A bitter sweet day.

:33:26.:33:29.

What about last night. How much sleep did you get? I slept pretty

:33:30.:33:36.

well, the fight before I was restless knowing I had qualified

:33:37.:33:39.

first and I was nervous throughout the whole day. Last night I crashed

:33:40.:33:44.

a bit. From all the highs and emotions. Well done today and we

:33:45.:33:50.

will see you tomorrow and pass on our best wishes to Becky.

:33:51.:33:57.

STUDIO: You can see her getting that bronze. She has the full set, the

:33:58.:34:03.

gold, the silver and the bronze. And interesting to hear she slept worse

:34:04.:34:08.

the night after qualification with the potential of what could be over

:34:09.:34:14.

the reality. Yes definitely. For myself I struggled to sleep after a

:34:15.:34:18.

competition, because even though my body was tired and needed rest,

:34:19.:34:22.

there was so much going on in my head, I was thinking about the

:34:23.:34:26.

routines and things that I could improve on. So much going on. It is

:34:27.:34:32.

great she found something that suits her and got down to and helped with

:34:33.:34:36.

her performances. She is proving to be so consistent and hearing that

:34:37.:34:40.

fighting talk even with David, I was happy to let her have that title.

:34:41.:34:46.

She just loves the competition. As soon as she goes out and see the

:34:47.:34:52.

atmosphere and just, some gymnasts struggle with that pressure. She

:34:53.:34:56.

seems to rise to it and loves being in the limelight. It is great to

:34:57.:35:00.

have that attitude. It could have been her sister who knocked her out

:35:01.:35:05.

of the medal spot. Becky was going for her third title. Trying to catch

:35:06.:35:10.

you up, Beth. How much do you think that would have been on her mind and

:35:11.:35:14.

how conscious do you think she would have been through that whole

:35:15.:35:18.

routine. A lot of it is about muscle memory. Yes, she said it is a new

:35:19.:35:24.

routine. She had one for Rio and the World Championships and a couple of

:35:25.:35:28.

errors with it and made a decision that she didn't want that risk right

:35:29.:35:33.

at the end. So it has been a quick turn and and routines take time to

:35:34.:35:37.

settle down. We saw her go at nationals and having trouble. I

:35:38.:35:41.

spoke to her and she seemed chilled out about it and said it will take

:35:42.:35:45.

me time to settle into the routine. Not only is it moving the routine,

:35:46.:35:53.

it is a whole brand-new skill. But to do that is hard. That routine was

:35:54.:35:59.

brilliant up until. She still came seventh. Just doing half of the

:36:00.:36:04.

routine. That shows there was very little dedebgs. That bode --

:36:05.:36:09.

deduction and that bodes well and we have our own medical team and they

:36:10.:36:13.

will assess her. She has a beam final tomorrow. They will be

:36:14.:36:17.

assessing that to see where she is at tomorrow and make that decision.

:36:18.:36:23.

Depends Fong injury. -- defending on the injury. Now to rings and

:36:24.:36:29.

historically rings hasn't been the strongest piece for Britain. But we

:36:30.:36:35.

have been watching as Courtney Tulloch has been starting to

:36:36.:36:40.

challenge the best in the world. Court never finished fourth last

:36:41.:36:47.

year, could this be his year to get Britain's first rings international

:36:48.:36:54.

medal. Let's find out. I love competing for Great Britain, I was

:36:55.:36:58.

obviously a bit disappointed to not make the team for Rio. It was hard.

:36:59.:37:03.

Obviously, I has been training a long time for that event to make, to

:37:04.:37:08.

try and get to Rio. But it wasn't my time. But I have been in the gym

:37:09.:37:13.

training hard, making new goals, setting new targets with my coach.

:37:14.:37:21.

And I'm reaching them goals just a lit p stepping -- little stepping

:37:22.:37:24.

stone. I'm pleased to have made the rings final and I can't wait to get

:37:25.:37:29.

out there to show everyone what I can do. Happy to qualify, but it all

:37:30.:37:33.

starts again. You can't think about what you did in qualification.

:37:34.:37:37.

Everyone will step up their game and I will do that as well. I'm not

:37:38.:37:42.

thinking about that now. I have go tot move on and I just want to

:37:43.:37:47.

improve and keep on improving. Fopp Davatyan the first. You can see

:37:48.:38:07.

the green light. There is a count down and they have to get on the

:38:08.:38:12.

apparatus before that downs down. And that is where Berki came to

:38:13.:38:20.

grief. Strong start. Pulls from below the rings, straight up into

:38:21.:38:33.

the top. Circle round to the Maltese positionment. And held. Open hands.

:38:34.:38:44.

Now he has got to swing. Slight arm bend there. A swing to hand stand.

:38:45.:38:51.

In the double pike. Back up rise to the Maltese. And the crucifix. Great

:38:52.:39:03.

strength work. Just lacking a bit on the swing. Back up rise to the top.

:39:04.:39:10.

No problem there. Swing back to hand stand. Locks out. Full twist in the

:39:11.:39:19.

double straight. What a start for him. Powerful work.

:39:20.:39:44.

Lovely strength and power. For me just lost form in his legs

:39:45.:39:51.

occasionally when he swung. But that, you see just like there, you

:39:52.:39:58.

can see slightly bent knees. But the swing to strength positions were

:39:59.:40:03.

great. Again just that little bit bent knees as he put the twist into

:40:04.:40:08.

the dismount. There is a deduction for chest pointing to the floor. He

:40:09.:40:11.

will have got that. He scored 14.86 in qualifying. I

:40:12.:40:32.

think the swinging part of the routine let him down. He was a bit

:40:33.:40:36.

clunky on the double pike front and you look at that hand stand, a bit

:40:37.:40:41.

of an arch in the back. A bit of an elbow bend. There were places for

:40:42.:40:50.

the judges to be able to deduct. They're often very close the scores

:40:51.:41:08.

on rings. 14.858. So the expert on the rings Petrounias, the Olympic

:41:09.:41:15.

champion. Defending his European title. One of the most difficult

:41:16.:41:23.

routines in this ring final. European, world and Olympic

:41:24.:41:57.

champion. Circled straight round to the top. Not even a flicker. To the

:41:58.:42:06.

Maltese. And again from the back up rise. Three in a row. Got to see

:42:07.:42:17.

some swing. Circle to hand stand backwards. Got to keep the rings

:42:18.:42:22.

still. Solid in the back up rise to top. Into the crucifix. Opening of

:42:23.:42:34.

the hands. Proving how strong he is. That is the front somersault,

:42:35.:42:41.

straight to the krubgs fix. Em-- crucifix. Double pike. Straight to

:42:42.:42:47.

hand stand. He has got good swing as well. Just needs a good dismount. A

:42:48.:42:57.

slight adjustment. That was a performance from Petrounias of

:42:58.:43:01.

Greece. Fantastic work. He is the Olympic champion and he looked every

:43:02.:43:06.

inch the champion on those rings. The complete master.

:43:07.:43:18.

Look at the shoulders, absolutely in line with the rings and the hands

:43:19.:43:23.

and the way he holds the hands open to show he doesn't need to grip the

:43:24.:43:31.

rings. Super double twist in the dismount. Just the slightest shuffle

:43:32.:43:37.

of the feet. He had three tenths space between first and second in

:43:38.:43:44.

qualification. 15.366. I think the coach thinks he has done it.

:43:45.:43:58.

Looks like they're having a party, in the house! Yes. And we are in a

:43:59.:44:07.

box room in Salford. Love it! And it looks like it could well be 15.433.

:44:08.:44:17.

Huge defendanty. -- difficulty. From the Ukraine he watched his team mate

:44:18.:44:23.

win the all-round title yesterday. Can he take a rings medal home?

:44:24.:44:34.

European champion. In 2013. On this piece of apparatus and what a pow

:44:35.:44:51.

erful gymnast. Straight round. Flat in the Maltese. That's good. Into

:44:52.:44:59.

the crucifix, maybe a little high first. Got to get straight to these

:45:00.:45:07.

positions. Good solid hand stand. Rings locked out. Double pike.

:45:08.:45:14.

Swings into the inverted crucifix. Difficult to control and connects to

:45:15.:45:15.

a lovely Maltese. Top planche again, up into

:45:16.:45:33.

handstand. Rings locked, fixed, winds up for the dismount, double

:45:34.:45:40.

twisting double back! Good solid ring performance, Trump will be

:45:41.:45:45.

happy with that. Very nice dismount. -- Radivilov will be happy with

:45:46.:45:49.

that. Very experienced gymnast, very

:45:50.:46:06.

strong and powerful. You can see the muscle development in the shoulders

:46:07.:46:11.

and back, look Caiuby hand guards just hook over the rings. -- look

:46:12.:46:22.

how the. Love this double twist in the double tuck, really beautiful

:46:23.:46:25.

technique, steadies his arms out for the landing. We are used to seeing

:46:26.:46:35.

him on the vault, actually. At the 2012 Olympics, he picked up the

:46:36.:46:39.

bronze medal, silver and bronze on the vault in the European

:46:40.:46:43.

Championships, so a very powerful, dynamic gymnast suited to those

:46:44.:46:50.

explosive pieces of apparatus. Such a high level. It is tremendous, and

:46:51.:47:01.

it is one of the pieces where, in the main, unless they wobble... So

:47:02.:47:09.

15.033, that is a big score, into second place, 6.3 difficulty. And

:47:10.:47:14.

now a big moment for Courtney Tulloch from Great Britain, a member

:47:15.:47:23.

of the Pegasus gymnastic club, a team-mate of James Hall, who grasp

:47:24.:47:26.

this opportunity and took a bronze medal yesterday. He will be

:47:27.:47:31.

desperate to get up there as well. Such an opportunity. Courtney

:47:32.:47:43.

Tulloch has taken it out, look at that, immensely strong, from under

:47:44.:47:48.

the rings, pressed a straight up into the inverted crucifix, back

:47:49.:47:51.

down again, press to crucifix, Maltese top planche, this is

:47:52.:48:00.

extraordinary! Strong work, Maltese, shoulders flat, now canny with the

:48:01.:48:11.

swing? Layout forwards to handstand. Straight into the top planche. Into

:48:12.:48:20.

crucifix. This is a challenge, come on, Courtney Tulloch!

:48:21.:48:26.

Double pike, straight into Maltese, you can see how much this means to

:48:27.:48:36.

him, lock the arms, hang on for the dismount. Full twisting in double

:48:37.:48:42.

straight, what about that?! Get in there, Courtney Tulloch! Wow, what a

:48:43.:48:48.

performance, such a great rings worker, really great technician.

:48:49.:48:55.

Coach really pleased with the performance. He holds those strength

:48:56.:49:07.

positions so confidently and so emphatically, just that little Herve

:49:08.:49:12.

pace on the dismount, but that was a very strong performance. He has got

:49:13.:49:21.

to go well into the 15s to have a chance to medal. He certainly will

:49:22.:49:31.

have, but if you talk about sheer strength, pound for pound, he is

:49:32.:49:36.

packed with it. So difficult to explain how strong you have to be to

:49:37.:49:41.

perform those skills on the rings. You know, people are sat at home,

:49:42.:49:47.

saying, I can go to the gym and bench press 200 kilograms - that is

:49:48.:49:51.

nothing in comparison to what these guys are doing up there, that is

:49:52.:49:56.

absolutely phenomenal work. And so great to have a British ring worker

:49:57.:50:02.

in this European final. Yeah, it has been a long time since we have had a

:50:03.:50:07.

gymnast of this quality on the rings, it has been one of the pieces

:50:08.:50:11.

that we have had to make up ground on, really. Fantastic! 15.066,

:50:12.:50:21.

second place with just one gymnast to go, well done, Courtney Tulloch!

:50:22.:50:24.

second place with just one gymnast to go, well done, Courtney fantastic

:50:25.:50:25.

performance. Brendan Cole arc from Turkey, Turkey

:50:26.:50:48.

have been very impressive this championships. -- Ibrahim Colak. 22

:50:49.:51:01.

years of age, qualified in seventh, 14.733 in qualification. Let's see

:51:02.:51:11.

what he can do now. Top planche. Lock those arms, a little bit of a

:51:12.:51:17.

twist on the body in the Maltese but level with the rings. Top planche

:51:18.:51:23.

again, you can see the strain, it is not easy. Good in the swing, better

:51:24.:51:33.

in the strength there. Crucifix. A little bit low.

:51:34.:51:39.

That is the front somersault, holding into crucifix, a little bit

:51:40.:51:45.

high then lowering into that position, so that is a deduction.

:51:46.:51:55.

Needs to lock the handstand out. Another double pike, adjustment on

:51:56.:52:03.

landing. Well, strong work, but not quite the immense power we have seen

:52:04.:52:10.

from one or two of the others. Certainly not, I don't think it

:52:11.:52:13.

would be good enough to challenge for a medal today. Nevertheless, a

:52:14.:52:20.

reasonable performance. But we could see history again. Well, it has

:52:21.:52:33.

certainly been a championships for firsts. Lovely line, this gymnast.

:52:34.:52:40.

Again, like you are saying, such a difficult dismount to nail.

:52:41.:52:46.

Completelyunsighted. Well, whatever happens, Courtney

:52:47.:53:14.

Tulloch has got a medal. 14.833 for fifth-place for Turkey, so

:53:15.:53:19.

Petrounias retains his title, and other gold medal for Greece, and a

:53:20.:53:24.

medal on the rings for Great Britain as well, and look at that

:53:25.:53:32.

celebration, wow! First for Greece, Petrounias, Courtney Tulloch is

:53:33.:53:40.

second, Radivilov is third, a bit of a scalp. Tell us what this means to

:53:41.:53:46.

you. It means a lot, I have come forth, just missed out on medals in

:53:47.:53:51.

a few competitions now, and I did not want that to happen again, so I

:53:52.:53:56.

have gone back to the gym, trained so hard. I have had a lot of help

:53:57.:54:01.

along the way, through good parts and the bad parts, but I want to

:54:02.:54:05.

thank everyone that has helped me, really happy. I am sure you are

:54:06.:54:10.

aware that you have made a British slice of gymnastic history. Yeah,

:54:11.:54:15.

before I came out, I heard that, amazing, we are not really known for

:54:16.:54:19.

rings, but I want to keep improving that, and hopefully there will be

:54:20.:54:24.

some little gymnasts who can follow in my footsteps and we can become a

:54:25.:54:30.

great nation on rings. You are only 21 yourself, plenty of years to go,

:54:31.:54:34.

and the only man who could beat you was the Olympic champion. You have

:54:35.:54:39.

put a target on his back. He did well today, but I felt a lot more

:54:40.:54:43.

confident at there, I don't really look at anyone else and fear them,

:54:44.:54:47.

he did an amazing routine, but I know I can catch him, I have got

:54:48.:54:54.

skills to add in my routine, so I am not scared of him, I know I can beat

:54:55.:55:00.

him, I can't wait to go to the World Championships and have another

:55:01.:55:03.

battle, go at it again. We can't wait for that as well, this

:55:04.:55:11.

was the moment that Courtney got that medal. The first ever rings

:55:12.:55:16.

medal at an international competition, and that is the colour

:55:17.:55:20.

of it, silver, fighting talk again, and he had the hardest difficulty in

:55:21.:55:27.

that final as well, up against the Olympic champion, and to hear him

:55:28.:55:32.

say he has got more difficulty as well, Kristian. It is scary how much

:55:33.:55:37.

he can do on the rings, we have to remember that he is fairly young for

:55:38.:55:42.

a rings specialist, so he has more of that mature strength to come down

:55:43.:55:46.

the line. Very exciting, I have seen what he can do in training, he has

:55:47.:55:51.

got his own skill, the Gloria, that he can put into that routine as

as being incredibly strong,, he is so well suited in his body type.

:56:11.:56:16.

Definitely, you tend to find most people in the rings final are suited

this routine, so he does a great job to continue it from start to finish,

no wobbling, solid as anything. If he can continue to do this, he has

Team GB were hoping for, but at the end of day two, with another day to

Kristian and Max, you heard Courtney saying, I have finished fourth so

many times, I don't want to sit in that position. They have got their

Courtney was saying epitomises that, Great Britain are not just going to
