Absolutely brilliant, Louis. Finals Day.

:00:49.:00:59.

I know, Matt, and I'm so excited! This is not about dancing, this is

:00:59.:01:06.

the World Gymnastics Finals. . What do you mean? Take it from

:01:06.:01:11.

experience, you have to let things go.

:01:11.:01:14.

There is always one! Well, smile, then! I'm so glad it is Finals Day.

:01:14.:01:21.

There is always one! Well, smile, Come on, boys! I have just had this

:01:21.:01:26.

conversation with Matt. Apparently it is about the gymnastics today.

:01:26.:01:33.

Really? What is it the finals? Yes, the parallels, the bars.

:01:33.:01:38.

I better take the shoes off. Yes, Lewis turned up yesterday with

:01:38.:01:45.

a pair of high heels on instead of football boots. That was between us,

:01:45.:01:49.

what are you telling them that for? ! Well, we did get here. Louis has

:01:49.:01:57.

been dancing ever since. I know. Sorry.

:01:57.:02:04.

Sorry we could not get your skates back. I felt left out.

:02:04.:02:10.

Well, it was impress ifr rive. Welcome to the ant westerly

:02:10.:02:13.

Sportpaleis, where Kohei Uchimura has made history. We are talking

:02:13.:02:19.

about the Men's All Round and the Women's All Round. Now, nobody has

:02:19.:02:25.

ever managed to win four consecutive titles. He did it in style. We did

:02:25.:02:32.

not think he would do any less, but he was so great on all pieces of

:02:32.:02:37.

apparatus? He is just talent. What he can do, no-one else can. The fact

:02:37.:02:43.

he can win medals on the individual apparatus and all-round it is

:02:43.:02:47.

unbelievable stuff. And somebody else who has made a

:02:47.:02:54.

name for herself, Simone Biles. 16 years old, she took the title last

:02:54.:03:00.

tight. At that age to have that confidence? She is a cool cookie.

:03:00.:03:05.

She walked out, smiling, joking, she enjoyed the performance. Even the

:03:05.:03:08.

last piece, where she was ranked second. She was not phased.

:03:08.:03:12.

As far as the British interests is concerned, four gymnasts were going

:03:12.:03:19.

in the all round finals. Max Whitlock, Dan Purvis and in the

:03:19.:03:24.

women's, Ruby Harrold and Rebecca Tunney. Now it is about the

:03:24.:03:29.

individual specialists, this is the order of events:

:03:29.:03:45.

We are going to start with the Men's Floor. This happened half an hour

:03:45.:03:54.

ago, Dan Purvis, he is going. You are in for a treat.

:03:54.:04:01.

But keep your eyes peeled. First up is Kohei Uchimura.

:04:01.:04:11.

We said he was precise, accurate but let's see him take us through this

:04:11.:04:13.

routine. The World Champion. The Olympic

:04:13.:04:37.

Champion. Show ing. Beautiful position. One of the few gymnasts

:04:37.:04:41.

that marries great difficulty with fantastic style.

:04:41.:04:46.

Look at that. The two-and-a-half twist into the one-and-a-half.

:04:46.:04:53.

Every landing is measured. Every twist is finished at the top of the

:04:53.:05:00.

somersault. Such a light guy. He makes everything look easy.

:05:00.:05:13.

Extension out to a straight line before the

:05:13.:05:26.

He nails it! Look at that, a triple twist to finish! The absolute

:05:26.:05:35.

master. Absolutely so, Chris. The master.

:05:35.:05:41.

Having won four world titles. He comes out here today after that and

:05:41.:05:47.

producing something fantastic. Not the most difficult we have seen

:05:47.:05:54.

but so accurate. O -- so on his game.

:05:54.:06:07.

So much power. He whips over. Two-and-a-half twists. A great

:06:08.:06:12.

score: Jake Dalton.

:06:12.:06:33.

He has joined the legendary group with a move named after him. Not on

:06:33.:06:42.

this technique, but off he goes. A lovely start. A double straight

:06:42.:06:48.

somersault with a half turn. A little blind on the landing.

:06:48.:07:23.

Just a tiny falter on the landing. At this level you have to be so

:07:23.:07:31.

sure-footed. A triple twist! That was his best

:07:31.:07:46.

landing of the lot. Of course, it is the last thing that

:07:46.:07:50.

the judges see. There is Mark Williams. He does a

:07:50.:07:55.

great job. Two of his gymnasts in the floor final.

:07:55.:07:58.

Lots of power but he did not get it the floor final.

:07:58.:08:04.

under control, but what a great style.

:08:04.:08:10.

Look at that: Jake is ahead of Kohei Uchimura, he is smiling like a true

:08:10.:08:20.

sportsman. Really making the landings work

:08:20.:08:29.

today. One and three-quarters, standing up

:08:29.:09:21.

with straight legs. That is a bit of a trademark. Now, the concentration.

:09:21.:09:23.

with straight legs. That is a bit of He needs to hit this last tumble.

:09:24.:09:32.

The big strong round off with a double whip.

:09:32.:09:49.

Some tiny little adjustments on the landing. Tumble after tumble, he

:09:49.:09:54.

produced. Two-and-a-half twist, into a full twist.

:09:54.:10:00.

That was just a twiple twisting back. He pops it in there as if it

:10:00.:10:41.

is nothing. It an over yet.

:10:41.:10:57.

Two-and-a-half backwards, two-and-a-half fords!

:10:57.:11:03.

-- forwards! Even a twist into the side.

:11:03.:11:15.

He takes it all the way around, four twists, incredible! Look at

:11:15.:11:26.

Uchimura, he is loving it. What a performance!

:11:26.:11:31.

You count the full twist into the double, into the triple. This is so

:11:32.:11:36.

fast. He twists so efficiently. double, into the triple. This is so

:11:37.:11:48.

It is one of those special routines you won't see very often. And how

:11:48.:11:54.

about this, four twists in this very last tumble.

:11:54.:11:57.

Amazing. He has scored 16! Undisputed,

:11:57.:12:17.

absolutely the best in the world! Shirai with that incredible routine

:12:17.:12:22.

takes the gold. Uchimura takes the bronze and Dan

:12:22.:12:27.

Purvis misses out by a tenth. He was in fourth place.

:12:27.:12:32.

Dan, three years ago you were on the world podium, today it is

:12:32.:12:36.

fourth-placed, frustration or pride? It is pride. I know my routine. I

:12:36.:12:44.

nailed it. I have come up against a world

:12:44.:12:52.

champion. And Kenzo, how unbelievable is that

:12:52.:12:58.

watching him? It is unreal. We watched his videos in training, to

:12:58.:13:03.

to see it live. It is unreal, but I have to be happy for him.

:13:03.:13:07.

What more can you do to challenge that next year, to be on that? I

:13:07.:13:13.

have a couple of tumbles, I have been working on them. I have not don

:13:13.:13:18.

it oun the floor yet. Maybe next year, possibly more to give.

:13:18.:13:22.

Seventh in the all-round earlier in the week, what is the focus after

:13:22.:13:29.

this event, is it the all-round next year? Hopefully. To try to get to

:13:29.:13:36.

the top three. That is my aim and to hopefully specialise on the floor.

:13:36.:13:41.

And Max Whitlock is coming up in the el, can he do? It will be exciting.

:13:41.:13:47.

We have seen in the all-round. Now the pressure is off. He has a

:13:47.:13:52.

fantastic chance of doing really, really well.

:13:52.:13:56.

Well done today, Dan. Dan Purvis, a ten of the a point

:13:57.:14:01.

outside of the medals. It is a remarkable performance? . He

:14:01.:14:09.

should be proud. He went out there, he did the routine, it was clean.

:14:09.:14:15.

And the pedigree. It was an unbelievable final to watch.

:14:15.:14:22.

And Kenzo, Beth, you did a lot of twisting but that takes the biscuit?

:14:22.:14:26.

We were trying to work it out in total. I think we made out it was

:14:26.:14:32.

18. Most gymnasts you get five or six, but the fact he has 18! What

:14:32.:14:39.

technique is he using? He seems to pop in an extra one-and-a-half.

:14:39.:14:46.

He twists over the axis, he does it over the side, it allows him to get

:14:46.:14:50.

in more. It is unbelievable. It gets the respect from everybody.

:14:50.:14:56.

He really does. We were training yesterday, literally, the gym comes

:14:56.:15:00.

to a stand still when he comes in. He gets a clap just in training. It

:15:00.:15:04.

shows that respect for him. It is interesting the persona that

:15:04.:15:11.

many take when they are in the gym, but as you are not competing, we

:15:11.:15:25.

have managed to catch you off guard! The pommel horse is a place I feel

:15:25.:15:29.

very comfortable. When you start training in gymnastics, you tend to

:15:29.:15:33.

pick up on an apparatus where you are better than the others. The

:15:33.:15:36.

pommel horse was always my apparatus, and to be the best in the

:15:36.:15:42.

world at the pommel horse, it is quite a challenge. Very few can deal

:15:42.:15:46.

with the physical and mental pressure of performing and doing the

:15:46.:15:53.

perfect routine. We saw Daniel Keatings and the Olympic champion,

:15:53.:15:58.

they both made mistakes. We train like a machine, but when we compete

:15:58.:16:02.

we are very human. The top three guys I picked in this pommel horse

:16:02.:16:07.

final is going to have to be Max Whitlock, Zhang Hongtao. Max is very

:16:07.:16:20.

relaxed, you can see them circling a lot faster than usual. If I was told

:16:20.:16:26.

to pick a winner, I think I would pick Zhang Hongtao. My heart

:16:26.:16:31.

definitely wants Max to pick up the gold. Performing my routine at the

:16:31.:16:35.

2012 Olympic Games was the best feeling I have ever had. I had

:16:35.:16:39.

worked 20 years for that one moment. I cannot describe to you how

:16:40.:16:46.

fulfilling it was. I have never been the emotional type, I have never

:16:46.:16:49.

cried at my performances, but thinking back I get emotional,

:16:50.:16:54.

watching the replays. You know, I start to choke up. Still, to this

:16:54.:16:56.

day, Wow, Louis, train like machines, but

:16:56.:17:12.

when you compete you are human. It is very true. We were talking

:17:12.:17:15.

earlier about how you can never quite prepare for that feeling when

:17:15.:17:19.

you are in a place like this. You can go through your routines

:17:19.:17:23.

endlessly, but when you come here, when it matters, that is the

:17:23.:17:28.

difficulty, isn't it? You can do lots of World Championships,

:17:28.:17:30.

European Championships, but when it comes to the Olympic Games, that is

:17:30.:17:36.

something special. Max tonight has something special. You were talking

:17:36.:17:41.

about the difference files, not that it is a nonchalant style, but it is

:17:41.:17:46.

a style of gymnastics that he has, will that help them in this kind of

:17:46.:17:51.

environment? I think it is a nice thing to be laid-back. If you are a

:17:51.:17:55.

bit fast-paced, here, there and everywhere, you can trip yourself

:17:55.:18:00.

up. Whereas Macs, and I have the same tactic, the relaxed, take it in

:18:00.:18:06.

your stride. He has got this hanging over his head. Potentially he could

:18:06.:18:11.

be the first men's world champion. What was it like for you way back

:18:11.:18:19.

when? 2006, you cannot think about it like that, you have to stay

:18:19.:18:26.

focused on your routine. It is a case of, I have got to get from A to

:18:26.:18:31.

be with my routine, and if I get a medal, so be it. Max is so used to

:18:31.:18:36.

competing, even though he is a young kid on the circuit. He has done the

:18:36.:18:41.

Olympic Games, and he went in with such a chilled out atmosphere, he

:18:41.:18:46.

has got that experience. And he is following in your footsteps because

:18:46.:18:50.

you have carved out a path, that is the way that you have shown

:18:50.:18:53.

everybody, and it is amazing hammy gymnasts are following in your

:18:53.:18:58.

footsteps. It is nice for me to take a step back and see that happening,

:18:58.:19:01.

footsteps. It is nice for me to take Daniel Keatings and Max Whitlock

:19:01.:19:04.

doing so well, the youngsters we have got coming up, they could be

:19:04.:19:08.

something special. So it is nice to know that I started and there are

:19:08.:19:10.

people coming up. Is that the key as know that I started and there are

:19:10.:19:16.

far as Britain is concerned? Is that why we are... When you train as a

:19:16.:19:20.

squad, and you have some on competing at a world level, you want

:19:20.:19:30.

to be better than them. Just looking at Zhang Hongtao, he is the highest

:19:30.:19:36.

qualifier, but he has got a score of 15.541. I mean, Max can beat that.

:19:36.:19:41.

Max can beat that, he has the potential to score even higher.

:19:41.:19:48.

Zhang Hongtao really had a chance. Here they come, they are coming out

:19:48.:19:50.

in the order that they will compete. Here they come, they are coming out

:19:50.:19:55.

Max is going in fourth place, is that a good place to be competing?

:19:55.:20:00.

It is all right. If you can go in front of the big names, it is good,

:20:00.:20:04.

put in a good performance, but a bit of fear in their hearts, as I like

:20:04.:20:11.

to think. Fourth is good. The Russian pommel horse champion will

:20:11.:20:16.

be wrapping things up. You have to stay relaxed, there is a while

:20:16.:20:19.

before he is going to be other there, who knows what he is

:20:19.:20:22.

thinking? This is what he was thinking a while back when he met up

:20:22.:20:27.

with Ollie Williams. I am going to hopefully attempt the biggest

:20:27.:20:33.

routine that I have been working on, and it is adding two new moves,

:20:33.:20:39.

two new elements, which makes the on, and it is adding two new moves,

:20:39.:20:42.

routine very risky, but hopefully if I can pull it off, I can get a good

:20:42.:20:47.

score. To be honest, it is still a hard final, you know. There are

:20:47.:20:51.

seven other people in that final, one of them being Zhang Hongtao from

:20:51.:20:56.

China. He has scored over 16 before in quite a few competitions, he is a

:20:56.:21:02.

specialist. There is Sellathurai from Australia. If I can perform at

:21:02.:21:08.

the Olympics, hopefully I can perform at a competition like this.

:21:08.:21:22.

Listen to the role for Britain's wax weblog -- Max Whitlock. Zhang

:21:22.:21:32.

Hongtao will be first up, but this will be his last worlds, going into

:21:33.:21:42.

retirement. This could be his year, he is always outside, Busnari. The

:21:42.:21:49.

eighth gymnast, he has got a long way back. They are allowing the

:21:49.:21:52.

gymnasts to go back into the warm up all, so he does not have to sit

:21:52.:22:00.

there and watch everyone. Will Zhang Hongtao make gold in his final year

:22:00.:22:06.

at the world finals? Sellathurai is twice a world medallist. Max

:22:07.:22:08.

Whitlock got bronze at the Olympics. Let's go over to the commentary

:22:08.:22:21.

box. And here we are, just waiting for

:22:21.:22:33.

the start of this pommel horse final. The gymnasts have had no warm

:22:33.:22:37.

up in the arena before they start. They have been an earlier today, but

:22:37.:22:43.

since the vault and the floor has gone, they have not had another

:22:43.:22:47.

chance. There is a warm up gym at the back, so they come into the

:22:47.:22:51.

bright lights, and it can be quite daunting. It certainly can, but this

:22:51.:22:54.

bright lights, and it can be quite man is used to it. He has been world

:22:54.:22:57.

champion and World Cup champion. Beautifully extended swing, look at

:22:57.:23:15.

that, he keeps the shape. Very fast hands.

:23:16.:23:21.

Good leg separation, look at this, smooth in the handstand.

:23:22.:23:31.

And this really is, it is an opener, and it is very impressive!

:23:31.:23:38.

He lost his legs a little bit there. Now the triple Russian, he is back

:23:38.:23:45.

on song. Good style, good swing. Can he keep

:23:45.:23:57.

the fluidity? He does! Fluid it was, well done indeed. Well, that

:23:57.:24:01.

certainly puts the pressure on the others, doesn't it? What were you

:24:01.:24:06.

saying, Louis, if you go out first and perform well it puts fear in

:24:06.:24:12.

their hearts! That was an unbelievable routine. I am shaking

:24:12.:24:18.

watching! I'm probably not the best to be commentating! This shape, the

:24:18.:24:29.

way he circles, his style, the handstand, toes constantly pointed.

:24:29.:24:34.

A little bit of form break in the top. Is this mound, you know, he

:24:34.:24:40.

nails it. You can see how happy years. Who wouldn't be?!

:24:40.:24:42.

Unbelievable! Ever been first up in a major,

:24:42.:24:57.

Louis? I have been first up a few times. It is a powerful position,

:24:57.:25:01.

because if you put in a good routine, you will intimidate the

:25:01.:25:07.

rest of the field. And there we have it, a score of 15.6.

:25:07.:25:13.

So every gymnast from now on will have to be exceptional.

:25:14.:25:21.

Exceptional, I am not sure, but Alberto Busnari is certainly

:25:21.:25:26.

different! Inoperative -- innovative and he has

:25:26.:25:37.

been around a long time. Well in his 30s now. Take a look at the way he

:25:37.:25:43.

has put this exercise together. Very pedestrian so far, up egos, and

:25:43.:26:00.

that is a big pause in the handstand. That is is own move, he

:26:00.:26:10.

really needs to be more fluid. Let's see how the judges treated. Flares

:26:10.:26:17.

predominating here. Is it over yet? Answer? Road no, he carries on. More

:26:17.:26:25.

flares. He has changed the nature of pommel horse.

:26:25.:26:35.

And that is a big pause before the dismount! Well, Busnari, it was

:26:35.:26:45.

different, but there were problems. Well! He posted a massive starting

:26:45.:26:51.

score of 7.1 in qualification, so if they credit everything, that gives

:26:51.:26:58.

quite an advantage. It is a very unique type of routine. I think he

:26:58.:27:03.

is going to be penalised quite a lot in terms of how much he breaks the

:27:03.:27:07.

swing of the actual pommel horse routine. We saw a little bit of good

:27:07.:27:12.

one hand, then we see him pausing in the swing, and pommel horse is about

:27:12.:27:16.

keeping the movement. It will be interesting to see what the judges

:27:16.:27:22.

do with the score. Down to the little things, you can see his toes

:27:22.:27:27.

crossover. These are the deductions the judges will pick up on.

:27:27.:27:40.

It is debatable whether the judges will give the dismount, because he

:27:40.:27:46.

comes back down in a different direction. I was going to say, I

:27:46.:27:53.

think his face says it all. He was not totally convinced himself as he

:27:54.:27:56.

landed, it was not that instantaneous jeer. -- gear. They

:27:56.:28:06.

gave it, they were kind. And that 7.1 gives him a score of 15.6 and

:28:06.:28:16.

puts him into the lead. The same score to share the lead, I would

:28:16.:28:21.

really put a question mark on that. Prashanth Sellathurai, and nobody

:28:21.:28:27.

swings as fast as this guy. He is amazing. Tiny, he is under five foot

:28:28.:28:34.

tall, but he looks so long when he is swinging.

:28:34.:28:44.

Look at that on one hand! Going so, so quickly. Beautiful... Oh, and he

:28:44.:28:53.

clung to the horse and he is walking away! What a disappointment for him.

:28:53.:29:00.

clung to the horse and he is walking He was flying around the pommel

:29:00.:29:05.

horse. That is a very difficult skill, spend link between the

:29:05.:29:08.

handles, and two clear that surface area you need to circle as fast as

:29:08.:29:11.

him. Be as paced around it and got his

:29:11.:29:19.

composure, he's going to have another go. -- he has.

:29:19.:29:27.

He is going to take off! Look at this, this is his trademark. Fast,

:29:27.:29:38.

clean swinging. A pity he came to grief in the middle, a lovely

:29:38.:29:42.

handstand sequence as well. But it is tough at the top! Packing in so

:29:42.:29:48.

much difficulty, it is hard to stay on the pommel horse, and when it

:29:48.:29:53.

comes down to it, the ones who nail their routine are the ones who win

:29:53.:29:59.

the medals. We can see he has a slight error there travelling into

:29:59.:30:02.

the triple, but when he picks up, he slight error there travelling into

:30:02.:30:07.

has got elevation like I have never seen. The pause in the Shia

:30:07.:30:15.

handstand will be deducted there. That is unfortunate for him. The

:30:15.:30:21.

only Australian gymnast we have senior, men or women, actually, and

:30:21.:30:26.

a great shame he did not manage to harness his best routine here.

:30:26.:30:32.

You can see how tiny he is, can't you?!

:30:32.:30:40.

He has to be massively disappointed. I think he will be.

:30:40.:30:56.

We Ceefax Max and his coach there, preparing the apparatus. Like you

:30:56.:31:01.

say, Louis, this is the nervous moment.

:31:01.:31:04.

We should see him play with the handles a little bit.

:31:04.:31:17.

He has to make the big decisions, the judge, there.

:31:17.:31:28.

When the gymnasts fall during a move, one of the questions is do you

:31:29.:31:34.

credit the move? Had they completed it? Did they not? When the routine

:31:34.:31:40.

goes through easily, it is much more straightforward for the judges.

:31:40.:31:55.

Here we go, the score is 14.033. The price of those mistakes.

:31:55.:32:03.

Max Whitlock! Ready to perform. Nice and safely, a sheer half with a

:32:03.:32:19.

travel. Russians on the handle, safely

:32:19.:32:24.

negotiated! Still a long way to go. This is a good start.

:32:24.:32:30.

He keeps the swing. Back into the flare. That spindle is so difficult

:32:30.:32:32.

to set up, but he survives it. He keeps the swing. A little

:32:32.:32:57.

flourish at the end. Max Whitlock! Sit down, Louis! Wow! Wow! This is

:32:58.:33:06.

intense. I can't do this! Now you know what it's like! Oh, Max. He

:33:06.:33:11.

went through from start to finish. One I havy moment there. He has done

:33:11.:33:13.

went through from start to finish. a big, big routine, in a big final.

:33:13.:33:17.

He will be happy. He certainly looks happy. So do the

:33:17.:33:23.

team. Oh, I'm still catching my breath! .

:33:23.:33:30.

This is the triple Russian, the G value.

:33:30.:33:36.

It is very clean. Back into the middle.

:33:36.:33:40.

This was the Busnari. He cuts back in. He clips the pommel. That could

:33:40.:33:49.

be a deduction of up to three to five tenths. He finishes off nicely.

:33:49.:33:55.

Here is the dismount, no, no, back on the Busnari. They look so

:33:55.:34:00.

similar. There is a little loss of form. He picked it up nicely. There

:34:00.:34:05.

is the relief. That face is a picture. Every gymnast has that.

:34:05.:34:14.

Well done, Max! There were two performances there, one from Louis

:34:14.:34:18.

and one from Max. He went for the big routine. He said

:34:18.:34:22.

and one from Max. at the begin, here we go, 15 of 633.

:34:22.:34:31.

Into the lead. What a moment. Brilliant stuff.

:34:31.:34:39.

That is well deserved. So, Max Whitlock in the lead, 15.

:34:39.:34:45.

633 to beat him. This is Robert Seligman from

:34:45.:34:55.

Croatia. That is lovely.

:34:55.:35:12.

Again through the spindle. A lovely shape he is working it.

:35:12.:35:17.

Look at the hips. Well forward. Lovely line. This is superb.

:35:17.:35:27.

Nifty through the triple Russian. Precise.

:35:27.:35:40.

A triple Russian, into the disopportunity. -- into the do

:35:40.:35:46.

dismount. That was a clean routine. I have competed against Robert. I

:35:46.:35:49.

think that is the best routine I have ever seen him perform. That

:35:49.:35:54.

will get him up there with the scores. I'm not sure if will -- he

:35:54.:36:02.

will beat Max, but a polished performance. Very impressive. From

:36:02.:36:10.

start to finish. All of the work was so stretched, so

:36:10.:36:14.

beautiful. So the execution score should be up

:36:14.:36:16.

beautiful. there. That is where the judges take

:36:16.:36:21.

the marks from the ten. If he can get into the nines for the

:36:21.:36:24.

execution, you are doing well. He should for that.

:36:25.:36:28.

The only thing he lacks on is difficulty. He will make up for that

:36:28.:36:33.

with the execution score. He was down in difficulty in

:36:33.:36:37.

qualifying, what here, do you think? I think it was not that much more

:36:37.:36:41.

difficult. Louis was not that impressed with the difficulty.

:36:41.:36:51.

There with go, a 6 .4, giving him a 15.33 for a fourth place.

:36:51.:36:58.

Lovely clean work. Kameyama. Traditionally, the

:36:58.:37:08.

Japanese are not brilliant on this apparatus. They tend to swing a

:37:08.:37:14.

little bit tight, but then every now and then there is an exception to

:37:14.:37:17.

that rule. A clean rhythm milk hand stand to

:37:17.:37:24.

start with. Very secure on one handle.

:37:24.:37:42.

A nice Russian to complete the combination there.

:37:42.:37:46.

A triple Russian in the middle that is not easy.

:37:46.:37:55.

Travelling over the far pommel, that was difficult as well. This is good

:37:55.:37:59.

work. He keeps the style. Did he clip the

:37:59.:38:06.

horse then? There's the hand stand. It was fluid, it was difficult, and

:38:06.:38:11.

it will challenge. I mean that is a different

:38:11.:38:17.

contention there. It was neat, tidy, start to finish,

:38:17.:38:23.

it was a brilliant routine. Lots of difficulty. Two sheer hand

:38:23.:38:27.

stands. It really was. We have the very

:38:28.:38:32.

muched circle here on the one handle, performing the stocky

:38:32.:38:37.

elements. Showing great control on the handle. Leaving himself enough

:38:37.:38:42.

space. It really was a great, polished routine.

:38:42.:38:46.

That's the big question. The difference in the polish to

:38:46.:38:51.

difficulty, isn't it? If you can marry them together. You are then on

:38:51.:38:55.

to a winner. Good to see the Japanese swinging in

:38:55.:39:00.

the horse so well. It is. Normally they have been

:39:00.:39:05.

tight, as you said, but this is different. Maybe he is some of the

:39:05.:39:12.

new breed coming up. Well they think it is worth a medal.

:39:12.:39:16.

Oh, it's a big score. Yes, a big difficulty score. He

:39:16.:39:22.

takes the lead just inching ahead. Wow! 15. 833.

:39:22.:39:33.

Kameyama, then, taking over from Max in pole position.

:39:33.:39:37.

Max Whitlock is in second, in the silver position at the moment.

:39:37.:39:47.

This is a very promising young gymnast. He faded a little for a

:39:47.:39:57.

while but he is back here. He picks up the swing nicely. The

:39:57.:40:05.

extended hips to the front. Very comfortable.

:40:05.:40:21.

Fast hands, shoulder and feet moving together.

:40:21.:40:29.

Oh, and that's the delay he didn't want.

:40:29.:40:36.

Still impressive. Apart from the dismount, I would

:40:36.:40:38.

Still impressive. have been happy with that routine.

:40:38.:40:41.

He shot himself in the foot a little bit, but it will be up there with

:40:41.:40:46.

the medals. A great routine. A great difficulty.

:40:46.:40:54.

Chris, you and I go back a long way, have you ever seen a Mexican in

:40:54.:41:00.

contention for the pommel horse medal? I was about to say that.

:41:00.:41:09.

I mean he swanking great from start to finish. He has a great extension.

:41:09.:41:18.

Much like Robert Seligman, there he is using the handles. He is only

:41:18.:41:22.

young. He has a bright future this guy.

:41:22.:41:29.

He is about 23, isn't he? There is the dismount. As he stutters a

:41:29.:41:36.

little, the judges could take five tenths, three, or in some cases not

:41:36.:41:41.

even give the dismount. We'll see.

:41:41.:41:47.

Well, second place, 15. 633. They are really pushing the scores here,

:41:47.:41:56.

these guys. So, in fact a joint second with Max

:41:56.:42:02.

Whitlock. We will have to see if there is a

:42:02.:42:05.

tiebreaker. The final gymnast. I have to apologise, there is no

:42:05.:42:25.

tiebreaker in the final. If you get the same score, you share the medal.

:42:25.:42:34.

Oh, he exploded in the Russian. He did well to keep that under

:42:34.:42:36.

control. That is while. How is he staying on.

:42:36.:42:52.

Surely he is going to run out of steam? He doesn't.

:42:52.:42:58.

This is a marathon. He keeps the swing going. That was

:42:58.:43:09.

an exercise in grit. Grit and determination. He was not going to

:43:09.:43:19.

let his moment go! He really had to fight, didn't he? He did have to

:43:19.:43:23.

fight, but he was a gritty, determined guy. He did fight through

:43:23.:43:27.

to the end. He started off well. The flare, the

:43:27.:43:38.

spindle. It was a routine with lots of promise.

:43:38.:43:44.

Great circles on the one handle. Circles on the one handle are a

:43:44.:43:48.

special requirement. A lot of gymnasts will be doing that. The

:43:48.:43:52.

hand stand dismount travels far away were the pommel horse, that could be

:43:52.:43:58.

a deduction. He won't be too happy with the form

:43:58.:44:01.

break in the middle. The trick is to pack the difficulty

:44:01.:44:06.

into as short a routine as possible. The longer you stay on there. He has

:44:06.:44:17.

got a rank seven. 15.146. He he is disappointed with that.

:44:17.:44:21.

What a final this has been. Kameyama, he has emerged on top of

:44:21.:44:29.

the pile. An amazing routine. Stylish and difficult. He wins

:44:29.:44:33.

Japan's third Gold Medal of the championships. Max Whitlock, the

:44:33.:44:38.

silver medal. Louis will be delighted. What do you think, Louis?

:44:38.:44:44.

Max is nowhere near a finished product. He has so much talent. He

:44:44.:44:49.

is 20 years old. He has come second in his first Worlds after the

:44:49.:44:54.

Olympic Games. What a super star. Brilliant.

:44:54.:45:53.

fantastic routine from Max, he will be over the moon with the silver

:45:53.:46:12.

medal. He is still so young, he has got so much time ahead of them. I

:46:12.:46:22.

just think, you summed it up perfectly, he is a young lad, Max,

:46:22.:46:29.

fourth in the all-around, second in the pommel horse, remarkable. And

:46:29.:46:33.

that was a new routine, want to do for the future. There is a lot of

:46:33.:46:38.

expectation on the young lad, he has done well. Well, it is incredibly

:46:38.:46:44.

noisy here, but I think he is with Ollie Williams right now.

:46:44.:46:50.

On the podium, a silver medal. Thank you, I am really happy with that. I

:46:50.:46:58.

had a 7.2 starting score, quite a big risk factor, so I am really

:46:58.:47:02.

happy, to come out with a medal is amazing. There were moments watching

:47:02.:47:06.

you when it felt like time stopped. There were bits in that routine when

:47:06.:47:11.

I thought, I could fall off, but I was just glad to get through the

:47:11.:47:15.

routine. Some bits was happy, to get a medal out, I am happy. Olympic

:47:15.:47:21.

bronze, world silver, making progress customer it really does, I

:47:21.:47:24.

am looking forward to the competition is a head, looking

:47:24.:47:29.

forward to them experiences. We are moving on to the bars final, so

:47:29.:47:35.

let's find out about that from our double bars champion Beth Tweddle.

:47:35.:47:41.

The bars is a very technical apparatus. People do not realise it

:47:41.:47:49.

is quite physically demanding as well. You need upper body strength,

:47:49.:47:52.

lower body strength, because you need to be able to make the shakes.

:47:53.:47:57.

When you are at a World Championships, as soon as you walk

:47:57.:47:59.

out into the arena and hear the crowd, you get the atmosphere in the

:47:59.:48:04.

arena, it gives you that adrenaline. That adrenaline does help you

:48:04.:48:08.

through your routine, but you also have to learn to control it, and

:48:08.:48:12.

that comes with the amount of competitions you do. As you step up,

:48:12.:48:15.

waiting for your turn, it is really nerve wracking, and you will know

:48:15.:48:19.

you have done all the hours training, and you have got maybe 30

:48:19.:48:26.

or 40 seconds to prove your point. Most of the time you try to tell

:48:26.:48:29.

yourself to stay calm, do what you do in the gym. We have got two

:48:29.:48:36.

British girls in the final, and we have got Rebecca Downie, who has

:48:36.:48:41.

made a European final. They are both used to being at there with the

:48:41.:48:45.

pressure, they both have a great shout of a medal. The one that

:48:45.:48:50.

everyone is going to be checking out is the current Olympic bar champion.

:48:50.:48:53.

She played it safe and qualification, she placed down the

:48:53.:48:58.

ranks, but she will definitely be upping her game for the final, and

:48:58.:49:01.

she will be at there to win the world title. When you actually go

:49:01.:49:08.

out there and do the job that you came to do, you cannot put into

:49:08.:49:13.

words how it feels - you are floating.

:49:13.:49:20.

This is the order of play for the bars final, the World Championships

:49:21.:49:24.

here. Rebecca Downie goes third, she is

:49:24.:49:34.

the British bars champion. And then we have got Ruby Harrold wrapping

:49:34.:49:35.

things up, but keep an eye out for we have got Ruby Harrold wrapping

:49:35.:49:40.

Aliya Mustafina, first in the in pics, first in the European, never a

:49:40.:49:43.

world champion, and this could be her year. Let's find out what

:49:43.:49:48.

happened with Mitch Fenner and Christine Still.

:49:48.:49:55.

Yao Jinnan, who thrilled us in qualifying with an unbelievable

:49:55.:50:02.

routine. Very special little gymnast on the uneven bars, super flight

:50:02.:50:07.

from the low bar to the height and then back down, back up again. These

:50:07.:50:12.

gymnasts are really moving fluently between the bars, and now here we

:50:12.:50:20.

go, this is the big move. Oh! And she performed it so well in

:50:20.:50:24.

qualification, but it is such a risky element. She has got to

:50:24.:50:29.

somersault above the bars and take it in her grasp. She goes over the

:50:29.:50:33.

bar but does not quite get the hand right over and peels off the bar.

:50:33.:50:38.

The judges have to decide, did she get enough of a hold for it to

:50:38.:50:43.

count? Here we have the beautiful pirouettes, turns on one arm. One

:50:43.:50:51.

and a half turns. Into the dismount, super double straits dismount, but

:50:51.:50:57.

that will be very expensive. One hole marked deduction. Cech a pity

:50:57.:51:02.

for her, she thrilled us in qualifying, and it was a difficult

:51:02.:51:07.

enough skill when we first saw it from the men. -- such a pity. What

:51:07.:51:15.

went wrong here? She just came into close, her hands are so small and

:51:15.:51:18.

went wrong here? She just came into you just lose that grip. As soon as

:51:18.:51:22.

you lose the grip... She do it well to carry on her routine and

:51:22.:51:28.

composers sell. 14.633, so the door has come slightly ajar.

:51:28.:51:34.

Full pirouettes to start, back down to the low bar. This is such a

:51:34.:51:45.

popular combination from low to high and back-up. She is using the pike,

:51:45.:51:53.

the stoop in and out. She floats the Yager somersault, the front

:51:53.:51:58.

somersault height. She winds up here, into the full twisting double

:51:58.:52:03.

back, hold the landing well. That was a good performance after seeing

:52:03.:52:11.

her team-mates have a problem. That was a fabulous routine from

:52:11.:52:14.

beginning to end, and like Christine was saying, she has put in this

:52:14.:52:18.

popular combination. This is the beginning of the routine, very

:52:18.:52:21.

confident start, the handstand, into the stoop.

:52:21.:52:29.

And there we see she has straight arms, legs together on the

:52:30.:52:40.

backswing, that is what the judges are looking for the whole way

:52:40.:52:44.

through. The Chinese are renowned for their style and bars, great

:52:44.:52:48.

dismount, perfect landing. Just the way that every gymnast wants to

:52:49.:52:52.

finish their routine. The coach is very happy with that.

:52:52.:53:05.

And she, like many of the gymnasts, are using this stoop movement quite

:53:05.:53:11.

a lot. It is very well rewarded from the judges, the code of points which

:53:11.:53:16.

the judges used gives it a very good value, and when you add it to a

:53:16.:53:19.

pirouette as well, it jumps your start value right up. The judging

:53:19.:53:29.

system, the judging bonus marks are changed after every Olympics, so all

:53:29.:53:35.

the judges have just read qualified. They are eager lives, they have just

:53:35.:53:39.

done their course, and little moves, certain moves have been given

:53:39.:53:43.

greater emphasis, and that is one of the moves we will see a lot of this

:53:43.:53:53.

cycle. An impressive score, 15.4 for Huidan Huang. Is it going to be

:53:53.:53:57.

beaten? That is a very tough score to be beaten, so we will just have

:53:57.:54:01.

to see how the rest of the gymnasts do. We have got our home girl here,

:54:01.:54:09.

so we are all rooting for her. She is not that far off the pace, let's

:54:09.:54:16.

see. This is important, the forward element, a gymnast has to include

:54:16.:54:18.

the forward element, straight into element, a gymnast has to include

:54:18.:54:23.

the swing, up to the high bar and then the big release, beautifully

:54:23.:54:28.

done. A clear circle. That was super!

:54:28.:54:33.

Lovely combination there, she just needs to keep concentrating, the

:54:33.:54:41.

struggle catch over. Down to the low bar, the Pak salto now, she needs to

:54:41.:54:46.

concentrate on this, up to the high bar, swings up with a half turn.

:54:46.:54:53.

Hole, and she just let her back go at that final moment! She went for

:54:53.:55:02.

the slightly easier combination than she sometimes trained, and she just

:55:02.:55:07.

overcooked it. Yeah, she will be slightly disappointed with that. You

:55:07.:55:13.

could just see across the platform it takes your body over that side of

:55:13.:55:16.

the bar, and there is no coming back. It looked like she was on

:55:16.:55:24.

song, what a pity. It is one of those elements, most of the time,

:55:24.:55:28.

you want loads of swing, but not half turn, you need to kill the

:55:28.:55:30.

swing and just control it. Just the half turn, you need to kill the

:55:30.:55:34.

dismount now, there it goes. What a half turn, you need to kill the

:55:34.:55:38.

disappointment, she performed so well, 95% of that routine. That

:55:38.:55:47.

is... Unfortunate, Beth. It is, but towards the end of the redeemed, was

:55:47.:55:53.

she thinking, I am nearly there? Do you know what? These things happen

:55:53.:55:58.

and that is the beauty of our sport, you can never tell and in the

:55:58.:56:02.

end of routine. Normally she is so good at those terms but it did not

:56:02.:56:06.

work out. Her coach is pleased with her, her big aim was to make the

:56:06.:56:08.

final. Rebecca has got such great

:56:08.:56:16.

technique, such heights in all of the release and catchers. Once she

:56:16.:56:20.

does these elements, there is not a lot to deduct. And there is the

:56:20.:56:25.

dismount, with the nice landing. By that time, you just think, I have

:56:25.:56:32.

got nothing to lose. She really did perform the elements in the

:56:32.:56:35.

beginning of the routine as well as I have seen her do. It is such a

:56:35.:56:39.

shame, the rest of the routine was going well. I was doing the routine

:56:39.:56:45.

with, a bit like Louis was doing with Max! They are talking about

:56:45.:56:48.

now, but there is nothing you can do, you just want to get up and have

:56:49.:56:53.

another go. Disappointment for Rebecca Downie, but she takes it

:56:53.:56:58.

very well. With her coach, Claire Starkey, from Nottingham Gymnastics

:56:58.:57:06.

Club. And that was very promising to me. Indeed. She has had a great run

:57:06.:57:12.

up to these championships, she has been training really hard, and I

:57:12.:57:15.

have known from all the girls that they have been pleased with their

:57:15.:57:18.

preparation, so she will be slightly disappointed, but like she was

:57:19.:57:21.

saying in her interviews, her aim was to make the final and get a name

:57:21.:57:27.

at there. 13.8 for Rebecca Downie, what might have been!

:57:27.:57:37.

Now, she is the junior European bars champion. Lovely controlled swing.

:57:37.:57:58.

Super pirouettes there. She would have hoped to have linked those two

:57:58.:58:03.

elements, the stoop up to the high bar. Gymnasts have to hit straight

:58:03.:58:07.

handstand, and she is showing that very well indeed. The downswing into

:58:07.:58:12.

the Jaeger somersault, front somersault to catch the same bar, up

:58:12.:58:18.

to a half turn. Change is the swing, up into the very big high full

:58:18.:58:22.

digging double back dismount, really nice effortless swing. A little step

:58:22.:58:30.

backwards, and I tell you what, she stayed up. It looks like one of the

:58:30.:58:34.

finalists who stays on will be in the medals, but she looks pleased

:58:34.:58:39.

with that routine. She is a slightly smaller gymnast with a different

:58:39.:58:43.

technique, but also, with being a tall gymnast, you can make things

:58:43.:58:46.

look more elegant. There is the stoop full-term. Like we were saying

:58:46.:58:52.

earlier, this skill is being used so much because it is being rewarded so

:58:52.:58:58.

much by the judges. This is the end of the routine.

:58:58.:59:07.

The stoop into the Jaeger somersault, nice straight arm

:59:07.:59:13.

catch, the coaches always come in just in case, as a safety

:59:13.:59:18.

precaution. There again, the stoop into the Jaeger, and you can see the

:59:18.:59:27.

coach as a safety precaution. The wind-up giant into the dismount.

:59:27.:59:31.

Such a common dismount. The back and full turn. It is the one area of

:59:31.:59:37.

gymnastics where the coaches are allowed to stand by for safety,

:59:37.:59:41.

isn't it? Some of these gymnasts are so small. When I was stood there, I

:59:41.:59:47.

chose not to have Amanda there, because I think I would have

:59:47.:59:48.

flattened her! A packed house once again. It looked

:59:48.:00:05.

a fairly quick routine, but difficult. 14.683, and that has got

:00:05.:00:09.

her into second place. Those are the top four places at the

:00:09.:00:31.

moment, but now begins the procession of power, Simone Biles of

:00:31.:00:33.

the United States, the all-around champion. She starts with the

:00:33.:00:40.

forward element, shoot up to the bar, but she did split her legs just

:00:40.:00:41.

a little bit. She is so strong and bar, but she did split her legs just

:00:41.:00:46.

full pirouette. I love this combination. She has a

:00:46.:01:03.

really efficient routine. Not so many elements. Not on the bars for

:01:03.:01:12.

too long, but just up, on to the dismount.

:01:12.:01:15.

That was powerful, precise, and she is determined to add to the medal

:01:15.:01:18.

collection. I think she is going for a medal on

:01:18.:01:24.

each piece. With that, she could have taken on a medal on the bars,

:01:24.:01:31.

but she has not the hardest start. There straight into the hand stand.

:01:31.:01:36.

Nice clean lines from the American. That could have gone either way,

:01:36.:01:45.

straight into the catch. A night height in the katchev element,

:01:45.:01:52.

straight down to the low bar. Here is the disopportunity. Straight

:01:52.:02:01.

into back in full, knows exactly where that land issing and the big

:02:01.:02:07.

smile we have all grown to know and love in this competition.

:02:07.:02:13.

It is not her piece, is it, she is dynamic, very efficient.

:02:13.:02:17.

It is not. She does not necessarily have the hardest start, but she does

:02:17.:02:22.

not give anything away. 14. 716. It is silver medal

:02:22.:02:28.

position. Still a couple of good gymnasts to

:02:28.:02:33.

come for Simone Biles. Kyla Ross.

:02:33.:02:46.

The final preparations. The secondawaysaway gymnast in the

:02:46.:02:56.

finals. Lovely long

:02:56.:02:57.

finals. Lovely , , elegant lines.

:02:57.:03:03.

The more I see her, the more I enjoy her work on the bars. Look the hath.

:03:03.:03:11.

The energy she has. A tiny deductions on the split legs, but

:03:11.:03:16.

she works with the bars nicely. The bars bend and give her height that

:03:16.:03:21.

was a very good high front somersault. Finishing the pir ets

:03:21.:03:29.

well. Hitting the lovely straight line again. Really timing everything

:03:29.:03:34.

so well. She is tall but does not have to bend her legs, keeps a

:03:34.:03:42.

fabulous straight length in the double dismount.

:03:42.:03:47.

That was superb. That was a fabulous routine. The coach is really

:03:47.:03:52.

pleased. After last night you are either tired or on top of the world.

:03:52.:03:58.

She has performed to her best again. Here we are, the Schap. Lovely clean

:03:58.:04:09.

lines. Some slight loss of leg form, but not a lot to take away. There is

:04:09.:04:13.

the stup skill we have been talking about with the full turn, into the

:04:13.:04:17.

shoot-down. There is nothing to take on that low bar.

:04:17.:04:25.

So much time? She seems effortless. Even though she is tall, she has the

:04:25.:04:31.

night double straight. The nice thing with the Americans,

:04:31.:04:36.

they get on so well. They are always there, cheering each other on.

:04:36.:04:42.

I think thereby a few more before the competitions end here today.

:04:42.:04:47.

They are really very different. So different. Different physiques,

:04:47.:04:53.

different gymnasts. Totally different.

:04:53.:05:01.

Talking about the finer points with each other. Some gymnasts when you

:05:01.:05:05.

watch them, they fight the apparatus. I feel she feels that the

:05:05.:05:10.

swing on the bars. She uses the bounce of the bar completely. She

:05:10.:05:14.

knows where her body is. What a score! 15.266. She now has

:05:14.:05:21.

gone ahead of Simone Biles to be in the second position.

:05:21.:05:36.

Now Aliya Mustafina. A qualifier with a 14. 9, but she produced

:05:36.:05:45.

something special in the all-round competition.

:05:45.:05:49.

Be prepared to be impressed. She is the Olympic champion on bars.

:05:49.:05:58.

A lovely pir et. Half turn, full turn. Straight down to the bar but

:05:58.:06:03.

she missed that combination. She put an extra circle in to go back to up

:06:03.:06:09.

the high bar. A nice turn. I love the way she does that. A

:06:09.:06:16.

front somersault. She just floats! A full pir et. That is beautiful on

:06:16.:06:23.

top of the bars, straight into the one-and-a-half dismount, but a

:06:23.:06:28.

short, packed routine. It was. Last night's routine was slightly better.

:06:28.:06:31.

She had the connection from the low bar to the high bar but she will be

:06:31.:06:36.

pleased with that. Whether it can contend with the Chinese, I'm not so

:06:36.:06:39.

sure. I think it could be a little bit

:06:39.:06:44.

down to the difficulty level. She missed one connection, but... Sheer

:06:45.:06:52.

the Schap skill. Straight down and this is where she normally goes

:06:52.:06:57.

straight back up to the high bar. The piked Jaeger is a nice element

:06:57.:07:02.

performed there. The straight arm catch, the coach standing in. in. .

:07:02.:07:10.

Seems to make it look effortless. There is the dismount, the

:07:10.:07:16.

one-and-a-half. She seems to be the only gymnast to do that dismount. It

:07:16.:07:22.

is a difficult landing. A difficult line.

:07:22.:07:28.

She's not too impressed, but we were.

:07:28.:07:34.

She could have reproduced last night's wonderful routine, there

:07:34.:07:39.

would not abdoubt but now there is. She is looking for the world title.

:07:39.:07:46.

She know it is is not enough. 15.033. Third at the moment with one

:07:46.:07:52.

gymnast to come. There is the leader, Huang. Out in front. One

:07:52.:08:01.

performance away from gold. And it is Ruby Harrold.

:08:01.:08:12.

Qualified with 14. 6. The last to go.

:08:12.:08:19.

Roubi from the Academy Gymnastic Club in ports head. Performed so

:08:19.:08:30.

well in the qualification. Really impresses. The original work. Shoot

:08:30.:08:36.

into the hand stand, a full pir et. Very nicely linked. Into the shoot

:08:36.:08:43.

up to the bar. She has original work here.

:08:43.:08:46.

Two-and-a-half turn, tipping into the front somersault. Catches a

:08:46.:08:51.

beautiful stretch. Just the dismount to go, now, double front, landing

:08:51.:08:59.

backwards but that was a great routine.

:08:59.:09:04.

She sure did go. You can always hear the British girls, they get as close

:09:04.:09:08.

as they can get to cheering her on. It was a fabulous routine. Small

:09:08.:09:12.

as they can get to cheering her on. errors and the stepping on nding but

:09:12.:09:18.

it is such a new routine, she want build on it.

:09:18.:09:29.

This is her original element or connection. The wow factor. You can

:09:29.:09:35.

hear the crowd in the background. I don't think that anyone, when they

:09:35.:09:39.

watch that, they don't expect her to go down to the low bar. You can hear

:09:39.:09:45.

the crowd's reaction to it. Here is the dismount. Just that big step on

:09:45.:09:50.

the landing. She will be pleased with that performance.

:09:50.:09:54.

Well done, Ruby Harrold! Yes, she competed late last night. Performing

:09:54.:09:56.

Well done, Ruby Harrold! Yes, she on the bar as her last piece.

:09:56.:10:01.

Performing well. Each day, performing that routine well. She

:10:01.:10:08.

and her coach, Liz Kincaid will be very happy.

:10:08.:10:11.

They will be. She is still so young and still with so many years ahead

:10:11.:10:13.

They will be. She is still so young of her.

:10:13.:10:19.

So, 14.333, seventh place for Roubi. There is the winner, Huang.

:10:19.:10:36.

Such a contrasting emotions. Obviously Kyla Ross has a smile on

:10:36.:10:42.

her face. And Simone Biles, as well.

:10:42.:10:45.

A really, really good competition. The contrast in style, shape, the

:10:45.:10:50.

type of gymnastics. Aliya Mustafina, she finished up

:10:50.:10:57.

with the bronze medal. The Chinese are often emotional like

:10:57.:11:01.

that. I can remember the gymnast who took

:11:01.:11:06.

the silver medal on beam at the Olympics, crying her eyes out as it

:11:06.:11:11.

was the silver. I have been in many a competition, they have fallen. You

:11:11.:11:17.

can see the reaction. There are the final standings.

:11:17.:11:28.

Well, it was a first-class performance from Huang. And Ross

:11:28.:11:37.

coming in there. We said how beautiful she is on the scene. She

:11:37.:11:42.

is your mum's favourite and mine as well. This is Ruby Harrold's

:11:42.:11:48.

routine. She finished in seventh place. It almost seemed as if what

:11:48.:11:52.

happened with Becky Downie, focussed her mind? I think it probably is

:11:52.:11:59.

because she is the next Brit in the final. It is her piece. Bars is the

:11:59.:12:04.

piece she wants to improve on the most. To show she is a contender in

:12:04.:12:10.

the world stage. I think that is why she was a little shaky, but she is

:12:10.:12:14.

young and can grow. Well, the strong men have come out

:12:14.:12:19.

into the arena. We are moving on to the rings. We wanted to find some

:12:19.:12:24.

people with power and dexterity to explain what this piece is about.

:12:24.:12:29.

Unfortunately, Christine Still and Mitch Fenner were busy, so we sent

:12:29.:12:34.

Louis Smith and Beth Tweddle. The rings are so hard. Only a few

:12:34.:12:38.

sportsmen have the attributes to truly master it.

:12:38.:12:46.

You have to be flexible, have extreme static and explosive

:12:47.:12:51.

strength. It is the only displained sport where all three are combined.

:12:51.:12:55.

The whole entire body must be switched on from the start to the

:12:55.:12:58.

finish. Now we will demonstrate! I have Beth

:12:58.:13:02.

Tweddle! ? COMMENTATOR: He steels that cold!

:13:02.:13:13.

Show them how it is done, Beth! Would you look at that? Look at

:13:13.:13:19.

that! OK, I have to get down! And that is how it's done! Voila! You

:13:19.:13:26.

still have it, Beth. I don't think that I will be a ring

:13:26.:13:30.

specialist. You are not allowed to use the four

:13:30.:13:37.

locks -- blocks in the fine. Here is the final:

:13:37.:14:10.

Let's join Mitch Fenner and Christine Still.

:14:10.:14:22.

Siad has had a brilliant European competition earlier in the year.

:14:22.:14:42.

He shows what strength is all about. Quiet strength.

:14:42.:15:12.

That is the most difficult. A super cross.

:15:12.:15:35.

Very nice dismount. That little dip! And the little hop, the only real

:15:35.:15:41.

errors there. At this level it is so, so close. In

:15:41.:15:48.

the Europeans one tenth separated first from the eighth. Those errors

:15:48.:15:53.

could be costly. He is the European champion. Some really strong guys in

:15:53.:16:07.

the final. Some of the strength positions truly impressive.

:16:07.:16:18.

On a couple of occasions, if we see it, he is hooking the rings, and you

:16:18.:16:25.

cannot do that - you have to be fully extended through the wrists.

:16:25.:16:33.

Good in the Swallow position. This will be at least three tenths. All

:16:33.:16:41.

those questions the judges will be answering. A terrific ring worker,

:16:41.:16:52.

is hugely strong. 15.5! That is the target. 8.7 for execution. And lots

:16:52.:17:05.

of these doing the maths now. Aleksandr Balandin, he is a master.

:17:05.:17:11.

He saves his best for the final every time.

:17:11.:17:19.

Balandin qualified with a 15.6. European champion in 2012, second

:17:19.:17:33.

this year. He has had a silver and a gold in recent times.

:17:33.:17:39.

Precision in the strength parts is what he is renowned for. Question -

:17:39.:17:52.

Willie put a twist in the dismount? -- we'll see. We have seen a 15.5

:17:52.:17:54.

posted. Again, not absolutely secure, and I

:17:54.:18:42.

am not sure he held that for two microseconds. Will he twist or won't

:18:42.:18:47.

he? He did, he took a chance, a little skip backwards. 15.5 is not

:18:47.:18:55.

easy with tiny errors, he might just have done it.

:18:55.:18:59.

Well, this apparatus is where most of the guys have very similar start

:18:59.:19:10.

values, so really execution, how well you perform these moves is

:19:10.:19:14.

going to be the key. He is a very stylish gymnast. Just as Mitch was

:19:14.:19:20.

saying, a few questions on the length of the holds. But toes

:19:20.:19:31.

beautifully pointed, body tight. Superb full twist in that double

:19:31.:19:34.

straight, it looks easy! Perhaps when he was on the rings it

:19:34.:19:56.

was not quite as exact as normal, he had to go for broke. 15.5 was that

:19:56.:20:00.

man's score. 15.733! Balandin well into the

:20:00.:20:13.

lead, with a 6.9 difficulty. He 15.733! Balandin well into the

:20:13.:20:24.

really up to his difficulty. That is three tenths more, that is a big

:20:24.:20:28.

difference on rings. Arthur Zanetti, Olympic champion.

:20:28.:20:47.

Now, he got 15.733 in qualifying, so he is quite capable of nudging

:20:47.:20:51.

Balandin off the top spot. huge definition in the upper arms,

:20:51.:21:18.

and that was not the perfect start. That is good. He lifts into Maltese.

:21:18.:21:27.

He has got a couple of other original elements in here. Circle

:21:28.:21:37.

handstands, tiny errors. Oh, and that did dip.

:21:38.:21:45.

Recovering well, he made sure of that cross.

:21:45.:21:57.

He sets up all the big swings. Double pike and then into cross. I

:21:57.:22:08.

will tell you what, he has had a very good second half of this

:22:08.:22:09.

competition. So let's see. It is the first of the

:22:09.:22:19.

dismount to be nailed, and he is excited about it, and so he should

:22:19.:22:28.

be! That is crucial at this stage. 15.733, he is out there in front.

:22:28.:22:35.

Well, in qualification, he also posted a 6.9 difficulty score, so

:22:35.:22:42.

this is going to be very interesting posted a 6.9 difficulty score, so

:22:42.:22:50.

such a straight line, isn't it? Super control at the top of that

:22:50.:22:51.

swing. And there, the very good high

:22:51.:23:16.

dismount, he throws the rings away. He can hardly contain himself! You

:23:16.:23:26.

must have to be really pumped to use that maximum strength, and the

:23:26.:23:29.

relief and the release at the finish must be quite extreme. Balandin

:23:29.:23:38.

doing the rounds, shaking hands. 15.8, good enough, look at the

:23:38.:23:41.

doing the rounds, shaking hands. execution score! 9, that gives in

:23:41.:23:48.

first position. He is the man to beat.

:23:48.:23:58.

Danny Pinheiro Rodrigues of France, again a high qualifier, bronze

:23:58.:24:08.

medallist in the Europeans this year, so he is certainly up there

:24:08.:24:10.

with a chance. The French are strong on the rings,

:24:10.:24:19.

different countries tend to excel on different apparatus, and this is

:24:19.:24:24.

certainly the place for the French. Oh, look at that, dead straight, he

:24:24.:24:31.

lifts the hips into a straight line. Moving from one strength element to

:24:31.:24:32.

the next. He needs to mix it up a bit with

:24:32.:24:40.

swing now, and you can see him holding the position to get ready

:24:40.:24:42.

for the swinging elements. That hold again from a different

:24:42.:24:49.

entry. He swings and beautiful straight

:24:49.:25:15.

arms. And again, fighting a little bit, RP goes. Oh! And what a shame!

:25:15.:25:24.

He just was a bit overconfident, fled those arms out. He is

:25:24.:25:30.

disgusted, the coach was not happy as well. That was done so well, what

:25:30.:25:37.

can you say except... ? They will go over and over it. The result will be

:25:37.:25:44.

just the same. Some lovely touches in the routine, that was the

:25:44.:25:46.

inverted swallow. He keeps his shoulders well down to

:25:46.:25:59.

set up that. What a combination that is! Inverted swallow.

:25:59.:26:05.

Par excellence! This is the regular swallow, just turn it upside down.

:26:05.:26:12.

Just like that! And that is curtains for

:26:12.:26:21.

chances, he is so angry with himself And that is curtains for

:26:21.:26:25.

and with the world. 14.5 sixes, we know that Danny

:26:25.:26:44.

Pinheiro Rodrigues... Well, when you talk about deductions of 0.1, 1.0 is

:26:44.:26:57.

big. At the Zanetti in front of Balandin, three routines still to

:26:57.:26:58.

come. Brandon Wynn of the USA. That is

:26:59.:27:28.

really impressive. And again, he swings to it.

:27:28.:27:36.

Those lovely in-line, important to show that straight line, not a dip.

:27:36.:27:47.

This guy is showing us phenomenal strength.

:27:47.:27:55.

You can see the muscle definition on the shoulders, the power that is

:27:55.:28:01.

needed to perform these elements. He has really made sure of every hold.

:28:01.:28:07.

Every hold has to be at least two seconds, and he has made sure of

:28:07.:28:15.

that. A little bit soft in that handstand. Up comes the swing into

:28:15.:28:19.

the dismount, the full twist in the double straight. That was so

:28:20.:28:24.

important to him, the coach goes crazy every time! The Americans have

:28:24.:28:33.

got... Look at this! He qualified in third, and that really was great, to

:28:33.:28:39.

nail the dismount on top of the straight is the ring work of's

:28:40.:28:44.

absolute dream. You very rarely get both going so well, and he did. Look

:28:44.:28:47.

at that, shaking. Superb! Very, very good work indeed. Look at

:28:47.:29:08.

that, the rings turned right out. Here we go, the big wind-up. And his

:29:08.:29:14.

dream, he kicked it out, his dream is still very much alive. Oh dear,

:29:14.:29:19.

oh dear! We have missed him this year, he has

:29:19.:29:32.

added bit of injury, not here for the USA team.

:29:32.:29:40.

He got 15.7 in qualifying. Two very good gymnasts to go.

:29:40.:29:53.

Well, a good start, qualifying with a difficulty of 6.8. Everybody is

:29:53.:30:01.

looking intently. I will tell you what, that was a good routine. Like

:30:01.:30:08.

it or not, the judges loved to see a nailed dismount. 15.666, he is into

:30:08.:30:18.

third. A difficulty of 6.7. And there we are. The leader at this

:30:18.:30:27.

stage out there, Zanetti. There are still two very good rings

:30:27.:30:31.

specialists to come. He might be a little bit disappointed.

:30:31.:30:39.

Liu Yang, top quality. 15.866 he got. The blue handles straight

:30:39.:30:51.

through into the position and again. That is a lovely transition.

:30:51.:30:58.

The second late inverted. This is lovely. Another Maltese.

:30:58.:31:19.

So easy for him. He lifts the chin with confidence.

:31:19.:31:32.

Oh! That little hop forward in the landing that could be the

:31:32.:31:39.

difference. 15. 8 is the target.

:31:39.:31:47.

That was a shame. The actual work on the rings was fantastic.

:31:47.:31:58.

They are all fantastic, tch! It is so precise. Look at that line in the

:31:58.:32:06.

inverted cross. The double tuck. The combining swing with the strength.

:32:06.:32:17.

He is ideal for a ring's worker. Small, light, the legs, the hips.

:32:17.:32:23.

Beautiful through the rings. He just dipped. They could almost

:32:23.:32:34.

take a five tenths. How severe will they be? He is about

:32:34.:32:42.

to find out. 15. 633. Fourth. The judges are on

:32:42.:32:48.

their game. You have to hit every skill.

:32:48.:32:57.

Zanetti is still in front. One little man to come.

:32:57.:33:07.

You have guessed it, it is orange, it is Mr Gelder.

:33:07.:33:15.

He's been the world champion, he's been a silver medal is, and a bronze

:33:15.:33:22.

medal is. There are a lot of people here to

:33:22.:33:26.

see him make a medal. He hits the inverted cross. Watch

:33:26.:33:28.

this... If there is a weak spot it is here,

:33:28.:33:41.

but he keep it is going. No flicker.

:33:41.:33:57.

Now the question is, will he twist in the dismount? He is never

:33:57.:34:15.

comfortable with it, but he will have to risk it. Oh, he's done it!

:34:15.:34:24.

Yes, Gelder took a chance and did he had to do. Now, at last, after a

:34:24.:34:30.

long time, Christine, has he gotten back into the medals? He ran over to

:34:30.:34:36.

his coach, delighted. The little man did his job.

:34:36.:34:39.

Well, we will see, but when you are last up and you have seen the

:34:39.:34:44.

routines as good as they are, you may as well go for broke. He did, he

:34:44.:34:50.

showed what a great competitor he is. Real strength, real power.

:34:50.:35:01.

Like you say, Mitch, as straight as you can be. A tiny shade off there

:35:01.:35:07.

but the good hand stand. Up, he puts the twist in, has to pike down on

:35:07.:35:13.

the landing but he was giving nothing away.

:35:13.:35:21.

Of course, Mitch, I bet you are delighted to see part of the team

:35:21.:35:27.

that you coached here in Holland? He's worked very hard for this

:35:27.:35:34.

moment. This is a moment for Brandon Wynn.

:35:34.:35:46.

But back to Yuri, he is delighted. He has worked so hard for this

:35:46.:35:53.

moment. Really, Holland are very much a

:35:53.:35:59.

country to produce specialists, Mitch. We don't often see them in

:35:59.:36:08.

the all-round competitions but here they are more specialists.

:36:08.:36:12.

They have always had the individual talent. The task now it to divine

:36:12.:36:17.

them into a team. There is a lot of discussion going on here.

:36:17.:36:21.

Lots of pressure from the audience. Like you said, there is lots of

:36:21.:36:26.

orange in the audience. We are not a million miles from Holland, of

:36:27.:36:30.

course. Lots of people have made the journey.

:36:30.:36:33.

Whatever the result, he will be delighted. He is down a little.

:36:33.:36:39.

157533. Fifth place, he will be choked, but he gave it his best

:36:39.:36:41.

shot. N Yammumuro, a power little guy, but

:36:41.:37:11.

there was a dispute if he was holding his body line long enough.

:37:11.:37:16.

Here is the first, one, two, I would give that.

:37:16.:37:23.

You must be static for this one too. Here we are, is he static? One, two,

:37:23.:37:30.

maybe not. He is squeezing it out into a hand stand. That is

:37:30.:37:32.

impressive and strong. If you can see the feet, they are

:37:32.:37:47.

not quite high enough. Hold the hand stand, tighten the

:37:47.:38:21.

back. Up into the oh, double, double dismount. That's impressive! Yes

:38:22.:38:26.

indeed. A double, double. After all of that hard work. He did not hold

:38:26.:38:31.

every strength but he gave it his utmost.

:38:31.:38:38.

Congratulations, all round. Yuri, he is there with his coach. He

:38:38.:38:43.

is not looking very happy. Let's have a look.

:38:43.:38:51.

Now doubt, this is a powerful man.

:38:51.:39:06.

A double pike without a pause. A little shrunk of the arms.

:39:06.:39:10.

The toes are dipping slightly. You can see the nerves. Through the

:39:11.:39:17.

rings on the double, double. A big, big dismount.

:39:17.:39:26.

He got 15. 5 in qualifying. I don't think he will get quite such a mark

:39:26.:39:39.

this time. There is plenty of tension on the floor with an inquiry

:39:39.:39:52.

put in. To make the enquiry, the federation

:39:52.:40:00.

has to go for it. 15.433, seventh place for Yammumuro.

:40:00.:40:11.

There is your world champion. Arthur Zanetti.

:40:12.:40:17.

A terrific rings final. The landing has to be satisfied. Second place,

:40:17.:40:29.

Brandon Wynn. Yuri must be disappointed but he is

:40:29.:40:32.

hiding it. Yuri must be disappointed but he is

:40:32.:40:42.

The celebrations are muted until the inquiry is answered. This is

:40:42.:40:45.

obviously the road to Rio. We are going to see a lot more success from

:40:45.:40:50.

Brazil along the way. Excellent work. They have got

:40:50.:40:56.

strength and depth too. This young man is so powerful.

:40:56.:41:00.

strength and depth too. This young Brandon Wynn, the enquiry is still

:41:00.:41:05.

on the front burner. We will see what comes from that.

:41:05.:41:10.

At the moment, if nothing change, he is going to finish in third

:41:10.:41:17.

position. This At the moment, the silver is

:41:18.:41:31.

the property of Aleksander Balandin. Everybody is looking.

:41:31.:41:40.

The enquiry is rejected. So the situation, state yuts kwoe... --

:41:40.:41:53.

status quo... Well, whatever, this will be the first Gold Medal won by

:41:53.:41:58.

a nation other than Japan in the men's competition.

:41:58.:42:01.

On the uneven bars it was the first Gold Medal awarded not to the USA

:42:01.:42:07.

women. So it is a break of their dominance on these two apparatus.

:42:07.:42:13.

Oh, the American coach is not happy, but come on, you have to accept the

:42:13.:42:15.

decision. I'm sure that the head of the USA

:42:15.:42:33.

Federation will be down. So Zanetti takes gold and Aleksander

:42:33.:42:41.

Balandin taking the silver. Brandon Wynn is third, taking the

:42:41.:42:48.

bronze, his enquiry rejected. He is not happy at all. This is

:42:48.:42:51.

about the difficulty, won't it? That side of the routine? You can only

:42:51.:42:58.

put innen answer inquiry if the stat score is not right. You cannot

:42:58.:43:03.

dispute the execution score. So he is saying that he did a harder

:43:03.:43:06.

routine. So, let's talk about the bars, the

:43:06.:43:10.

British girls in there. It was going so well for Becky Downie and I think

:43:10.:43:15.

that the confidence was building. I mean, the routine until the last

:43:15.:43:22.

moment before the dismount was perfect. You could not have asked

:43:22.:43:29.

more of her, but she could not hold it. Everything she does, she is

:43:29.:43:35.

technically very good. This has changed slightly from qualification.

:43:35.:43:43.

Once the feet go over there, it is difficult to pull it back.

:43:43.:43:49.

A lot of people may be why not put in an extra half twist? But whether

:43:49.:43:57.

or not she is used to swinging between the bars. Sometimes it is

:43:57.:43:59.

or not she is used to swinging easier to get off, but every gymnast

:43:59.:44:03.

works in a different way. Sure. Let's have a look at Roubi's

:44:03.:44:08.

routine. She was the last up. It can be difficult to go last.

:44:08.:44:12.

Obviously you hear the crowd. She probably will not have watched much

:44:12.:44:18.

of the routine, but she has an original routine. There is the

:44:18.:44:23.

yager, but the thing about this -- there is the Jaeger. She got the

:44:23.:44:28.

connection, in the arena you could hear the crowd going wow! She is

:44:28.:44:33.

still young. She will build on that routine.

:44:33.:44:37.

In the future, as a bar specialist? She has performed well. In three

:44:37.:44:41.

competitions out of three, she has gone through. So as a starter that

:44:41.:44:46.

is what we want. We can build on that, she can as well.

:44:46.:44:50.

Let's hear what she had to say for herself. Here are the girls with

:44:50.:44:56.

Ollie Williams. Becky, how devastating to lose that

:44:56.:45:02.

routine at the end? It is disappointing but there is a

:45:02.:45:04.

possibility I could have been fourth. I qualified in fourth. I am

:45:04.:45:07.

possibility I could have been pleased to have made the finals it

:45:07.:45:09.

is a huge step. I'm excited to see pleased to have made the finals it

:45:09.:45:14.

where we can go. Roubi, yours is a unique routine,

:45:14.:45:19.

how good to perform it in front of this crowd, last to go in a world

:45:19.:45:24.

final? It was amazing, to make the bar final in the first World

:45:24.:45:28.

Championships, it is fantastic. I know if I can do the routine, I can

:45:28.:45:34.

goo from A to B. I can do that. Becky, how much confidence has this

:45:34.:45:39.

given you? Do you feel you have proved yourself here? I definitely

:45:39.:45:43.

feel that. I made the bar final. I could not have asked for much more.

:45:43.:45:47.

The last bit went a little wrong. I had to improvise. I lost control of

:45:47.:45:52.

the bar. It happens. It has happened a lot of times, I am getting used to

:45:52.:45:59.

it. It will come. And Roubi, the first World Championships, how much

:45:59.:46:02.

have you learned to take through? I have level learned a lot. To walk

:46:02.:46:07.

away making two finals, it is fantastic. It is all experience at

:46:07.:46:11.

the moment. It can lead to somewhere in the future, hopefully.

:46:11.:46:20.

Well done. We are talking a lot about confidence and experience, but

:46:20.:46:24.

that is the key, to be able to come here and perform under extreme

:46:24.:46:28.

pressure. It is difficult, the crowd here, a packed house, noisy, a lot

:46:28.:46:34.

of distractions going on, and Ruby had to wait to be the last person,

:46:34.:46:39.

which can be a big distraction. Sometimes it is hard to get the

:46:39.:46:41.

judges on your side. You sometimes Sometimes it is hard to get the

:46:41.:46:45.

have to turn up with a little bit of swagger, to say, here I am, I am

:46:45.:46:50.

going to post big scores, get ready to give me a 15.8. You need to. When

:46:50.:46:58.

I first hit the scene, I needed to make myself recognised, not only

:46:58.:47:00.

with my performance, but with my style, and having an Avril for

:47:00.:47:07.

awhile, it was like, look at me. These things work, and then when you

:47:07.:47:11.

do your performance, you give yourself a name, and people have an

:47:11.:47:16.

expectation that he will bring a good routine. Ruby is at that time

:47:16.:47:21.

when she is unique, she has that scoop on the bottom bar, and people

:47:21.:47:26.

are going to enjoy that. You are not really ready to retire! How much are

:47:26.:47:32.

you itching to get down there? I am waiting for people to leave, I will

:47:32.:47:36.

imagine I am in the Olympic final and enjoy myself. It is funny, how

:47:36.:47:41.

do you feel, not in the tracksuit, just wandering around? There are a

:47:41.:47:46.

lot of retired gymnasts, even gymnasts that have done their job

:47:46.:47:50.

and just relaxing. Where do you see yourself? I have got itchy feet, I

:47:50.:47:56.

really have. I want to do different things, explore the world, walk down

:47:56.:48:00.

different paths, but this is my home, and it will always be my

:48:00.:48:02.

different paths, but this is my home. Even if I was 40 and I

:48:02.:48:06.

retired, there will still be part of you that wants to be competing

:48:06.:48:11.

again. What are you laughing at?! She has been there before! You can

:48:11.:48:15.

never walk away from the sport that has been such a big part of your

:48:15.:48:19.

life. It is the hours training that he will not miss. You will miss

:48:19.:48:23.

life. It is the hours training that walking out into the stadium,

:48:23.:48:25.

getting the butterflies, but the hours training I do not miss! This

:48:25.:48:30.

is the thing, you mentioned this morning that you still do a little

:48:30.:48:35.

bit of skating, is that right? Yes, I still do skating, I still go to

:48:35.:48:40.

the gym, it is the easiest way to keep it. I am going to do some shows

:48:40.:48:46.

with gymnastics, so I go to the states in December, and for me it is

:48:46.:48:52.

my life. Just staying in that kind of extreme movement is really

:48:52.:48:57.

important. I have to find different ways of getting the adrenaline, so I

:48:57.:49:01.

have been skydiving, wing walking, lots of different things to be all

:49:01.:49:05.

that adrenaline, because I do miss it. You can see the gymnasts are out

:49:05.:49:10.

on the floor area, and behind us is Max Whitlock. We talked about Kyla

:49:10.:49:21.

Ross, are you surprised at the order from the girls? A little bit. I knew

:49:21.:49:28.

Mustafina would have wanted to take the world title, and the Chinese

:49:28.:49:32.

girl falling, she had a wound routine, and you could see the

:49:32.:49:35.

emotion at the end, she was devastated. Huang Huidan, she has a

:49:35.:49:44.

consistent routine, you knew what she would score. We will hand over

:49:44.:49:52.

to the commentators. So just the accolades now to be received, and

:49:52.:50:01.

Max Whitlock shares a silver medal with Daniel Corral Barron from

:50:01.:50:07.

Mexico, and it is such a good gesture. You do not split at that

:50:07.:50:11.

level. They share silver, both thoroughly deserved. Max Whitlock

:50:11.:50:17.

for Great Britain. And Corral Barron from Mexico. Second equal. Sharing a

:50:18.:50:25.

silver at the World Championships. But there is no disputing the

:50:25.:50:34.

champion, Kohei Kameyama. He looked so good in qualifying, stretched out

:50:34.:50:39.

a little bit more, but an extra scored to it. He rocketed to the

:50:39.:50:46.

gold medal position, Kohei Kameyama, the world champion.

:50:46.:51:03.

And Max Whitlock, surely more to come, his first World

:51:03.:51:10.

Championships. He takes a silver medal, shares it indeed. But he

:51:10.:51:18.

controlled his nerves. Gold to Kohei Kameyama.

:51:18.:51:26.

Well, Chris, he has done it, he has gotten so a medal on the world

:51:26.:51:47.

podium. Yes, one step up from the Olympics, it was bronze at the

:51:47.:51:51.

Olympics, and I think he will take a great deal from this World

:51:51.:51:56.

Championships, Max Whitlock. And his coach, he has got a young coach. It

:51:56.:51:59.

is the first big international for them.

:51:59.:52:19.

Well, what a moment, to see the Union flag hoisted high behind us.

:52:19.:53:09.

Well, Max there standing for his photos. Just get on the right side,

:53:09.:53:18.

sun, there you are. We promised earlier on that we would show you

:53:18.:53:21.

the highlights from the women's vault, so we will do that right now.

:53:21.:53:25.

The question was, which the Americans would take gold?

:53:25.:53:29.

Power personified, the world all-round champion, Simone Biles.

:53:29.:53:38.

Watch this fault, look at the height, look at the timing, that was

:53:38.:53:42.

the best multi scene in the whole Championships! She normally has a

:53:42.:53:45.

hop forward, that was fantastic. Harnessing the power, and what power

:53:45.:54:00.

it is. Miles up into the sky, and look at the landing, terrific

:54:00.:54:06.

vaulting. Two and a half twists, and she did it with consummate ease.

:54:06.:54:16.

Huge vault, lots of. 15.933, a colossal score, and look at the

:54:16.:54:21.

execution. What on earth can she produce in the second vault? Simone

:54:21.:54:26.

Biles. Well, and easier tariff, so it has to be perfect, and it is,

:54:26.:54:33.

isn't it?! That half term from the round off, straight front somersault

:54:33.:54:37.

with a half twists, perfect body shape, perfect landing. Superb

:54:37.:54:43.

vaulting. She must know her moment is over. But this is amazing to see,

:54:43.:54:54.

a second vault, not so difficult. Half on, then half off, and a

:54:54.:55:00.

beautifully straight body. And watch the little flourish right at the

:55:00.:55:04.

end. A little celebration. Beautiful! She is great and the

:55:04.:55:10.

pressure, this gymnast. We saw it last night, when she knew she had to

:55:10.:55:14.

produce a really good performance on floor, did its no problem. And here

:55:14.:55:19.

on the vault, she knows if she is going to beat the opposition, she

:55:19.:55:22.

has got to be spot-on, and she has been.

:55:23.:55:29.

15.258 for the second, 15.595, Simone Biles clearly in the lead.

:55:29.:55:39.

And last, but certainly not last in the rankings, McKayla Maroney. And

:55:39.:55:47.

she finds so much I done so much time. This is special, just watch.

:55:47.:55:52.

The power, the precision, the height, the landing. But she was

:55:52.:55:58.

slightly of direction, I think, there. The world champion on vault,

:55:58.:56:02.

she took silver at the Olympics. Plenty of power. You can see that

:56:02.:56:15.

she veers to the side, did her foot go over the zone? We will have a

:56:15.:56:21.

closer look now. Look at the height on it! She just about squeezed it

:56:21.:56:27.

inside. I just think this vault is sensational, the amount of live she

:56:27.:56:31.

gets is quite unbelievable. You can see she was slightly of direction

:56:31.:56:36.

there. They really cannot be any other deductions. Surely not for

:56:36.:56:40.

height and length or anything of that nature.

:56:40.:56:50.

So second vault for McKayla Maroney. Different but still wonderfully

:56:50.:57:10.

flighted. The half on straight front with full twists, that is absolutely

:57:10.:57:17.

superb. , again, a little problem with alignment, but in the air she

:57:17.:57:22.

was absolutely beautifully controlled, stylish. Let's have a

:57:22.:57:30.

look. She veered over to the right. Half an com and you can see slightly

:57:30.:57:38.

off centre. I think that comes out of the round of slightly. You can

:57:38.:57:42.

see it. She was not square on. She just

:57:42.:57:59.

about crept in. She has gone into the lead! She has taken the gold

:57:59.:58:05.

medal! 15.724, the average, the rhythmic vaulting! Goldston McKayla

:58:05.:58:12.

Maroney. Simone Biles has a silver to go with the gold all-around. Un

:58:12.:58:22.

Jong Hong well deserved that bronze medal.

:58:22.:58:24.

Remarkably reserve celebration from Maroney, that is five of the ten

:58:24.:58:29.

individual apparatus finals over with, you can see the rest on BBC

:58:29.:58:35.

Two at 1:30pm. There we are, what an action packed day, I am exhausted

:58:35.:58:39.

and we have just been watching! Standout performance? Max on vault.

:58:39.:58:51.

This is you watching Max's performance, that is absolute

:58:51.:58:52.

attention. Oh dear! There you go! On that note,

:58:52.:59:04.

we will finish! Kristian Thomas is on floor tomorrow, we really hope

:59:04.:59:08.

you can join us for the last five individual apparatus finals. From

:59:08.:59:10.

all of us here, it is goodbye.
