This is the man people have come to see. That is phenomenal. That was

:01:21.:01:36.

unbelievable. A real mark of a man in control. He is the one they all

:01:37.:01:45.

want to beat. That was incredible. Absolutely unbelievable! Fantastic

:01:46.:01:51.

way to win a gold medal, everyone on their feet. For the fifth time,

:01:52.:01:59.

world champion. The superstar gymnast the world will never forget.

:02:00.:02:06.

Six in a row, my word, what a night it could be. Joining me to witness

:02:07.:02:10.

this potential greatness is Great Britain's first and only world

:02:11.:02:14.

champion, Beth Twaddle, and current British gymnast and world all-round

:02:15.:02:17.

silver-medallist, Dan Keating 's, welcome. We have to start by talking

:02:18.:02:26.

about Kohei Uchimura. The length of time this man has been at the top of

:02:27.:02:28.

all-round gymnastics... That's impressive thing. He was amazing to

:02:29.:02:35.

do a whole period in the last cycle where he won everything and now he's

:02:36.:02:38.

going for another one, which is unbelievable, unheard of. To last in

:02:39.:02:43.

the all-round for that long, I can't grasp how he's managed to do that

:02:44.:02:47.

and stay at that level. That is the key for the competition this

:02:48.:02:51.

evening, it's not specialising on one piece, it's being the all-round

:02:52.:02:54.

gymnast. It's having the mental strength to do one piece, then there

:02:55.:02:59.

is a break before the next one. It's how you control your nerves, steady

:03:00.:03:05.

yourself, do you let yourself relax completely or comeback? Every

:03:06.:03:07.

gymnast on that floor will do it in a different way. Somebody who knows

:03:08.:03:13.

how to do it is you, Dan, in 2009, we can see from this table, you got

:03:14.:03:18.

silver just behind Kohei Uchimura and since then, Richie Myler has

:03:19.:03:23.

been at the top of his game. Max Whitlock as well. -- Uchimura. If

:03:24.:03:34.

you can get a decent score across all six pieces of apparatus you are

:03:35.:03:38.

in with a shout, if you can hit those routines over six pieces, you

:03:39.:03:43.

will be up there. We'll be watching the top 24 gymnasts from a

:03:44.:03:45.

qualification competition that happened at the start of the week.

:03:46.:03:50.

We have two British gymnast Sear, Dan Purvis and Max Whitlock, who you

:03:51.:03:57.

saw takings over last year. -- two British gymnasts here. If he can

:03:58.:04:00.

score over 90 he'll be difficult to beat, including from Uchimura. David

:04:01.:04:08.

McDaid caught up with Max Whitlock in the run-up to this World

:04:09.:04:09.

Championships. At the beginning of the year, not

:04:10.:04:19.

using an excuse, I had glandular fever. The first stage was the

:04:20.:04:23.

toughest, I didn't know why I was struggling with my routines, it

:04:24.:04:26.

didn't go to plan but I took the positives out of it, rested up and

:04:27.:04:31.

it made me itching to get back in the gym. I feel good now, I feel all

:04:32.:04:36.

right, the competitions I've done now I feel happy with my, my

:04:37.:04:40.

personal best. In the London open. It gives me a lot of confidence.

:04:41.:04:46.

Tell us about the personal best. My first competition back, wanted to do

:04:47.:04:51.

a good job. I got 91.6 all-round. My target for this year is aiming

:04:52.:04:56.

around the 91 mark. I've done some good routines. Hopefully I can prove

:04:57.:05:03.

myself at this year's worlds as well. At the end of the day I'm

:05:04.:05:06.

looking forward to the experience, going back to the same arena,

:05:07.:05:09.

competing in Glasgow, it'll be amazing. It's some competition. The

:05:10.:05:17.

all-round is so open, 10-15 gymnasts all up there, it's whoever does the

:05:18.:05:20.

job on the day. Everyone is so close. Three races up for grabs. Who

:05:21.:05:27.

will you have to better to get a medal? You've got that man,

:05:28.:05:32.

Uchimura. Kohei Uchimura has been my idol for many years, he inspires and

:05:33.:05:37.

motivates me. He is the best gymnast in the world, pretty much, he has

:05:38.:05:42.

bagged his fifth world title in a row. This year he will go for his

:05:43.:05:51.

sixth. He's brilliant, really. What a performance, Max Whitlock, silver

:05:52.:05:56.

medal. You've got silver before, last year, can you be in and around

:05:57.:06:04.

the podium? I hope so, I mean... I try to aim for that, try not to

:06:05.:06:08.

think about it too much, all I think about is my job. Hopefully I've got

:06:09.:06:13.

the potential to do it, if I get my target school, do clean routines,

:06:14.:06:17.

hopefully results will come. SPEAKS FRENCH. Get my target score. It's

:06:18.:06:23.

going to be a battle of who can keep their calm to night. Definitely, if

:06:24.:06:29.

they can keep calm, stay on those six uses of apparatus, he will be in

:06:30.:06:33.

with a shout of a medal. Let's look at some of the apparatus he did in

:06:34.:06:37.

the team final. His best piece of apparatus is the pommel horse, he

:06:38.:06:47.

will be nearly 16 Mark. This is his weakest event, he has managed to

:06:48.:06:50.

update a little bit this year. Hopefully he can come out with a

:06:51.:06:54.

decent score and keep the confidence going. This is the triple twist,

:06:55.:07:03.

he's had this about a year now. The bars are one of his most consistent

:07:04.:07:08.

pieces, he scores around 15, it'll set him up going into the high bar.

:07:09.:07:12.

On the floor, as we've seen in the team final, his solid and has a huge

:07:13.:07:17.

start. He will come out with a massive score, hopefully it'll

:07:18.:07:21.

finish off the competition nicely. His qualification didn't go 100% to

:07:22.:07:26.

plan, but he's ended up in a group where his order works really well.

:07:27.:07:33.

He starts on pommel, the PC is renowned for, it could settle his

:07:34.:07:38.

nerves. If he gets a great start you'll be feeling confident. He

:07:39.:07:40.

could end on the floor, it's what they did in the team final, he knows

:07:41.:07:44.

he can handle the pressure if he's got a score. He will have rings as

:07:45.:07:51.

his second piece, so he still has plenty of strength. Looking back to

:07:52.:07:55.

2009, have a look at you. This leads you on the floor, what do you

:07:56.:07:59.

remember? This was in London. I remember being really nervous, this

:08:00.:08:03.

was my first piece, I stepped out of bounds twice, but I got a huge score

:08:04.:08:08.

on pommel horse, around 15.6, 15.7 and I made up for the qualification

:08:09.:08:13.

mistake when I fell on my dismount. We have to talk about your

:08:14.:08:18.

team-mate, Dan Purvis, as well, who has qualified for this all-round

:08:19.:08:21.

competition in third. He won the bronze medal at the repeating

:08:22.:08:26.

Championships. He is a rock of the British team and tonight he has a

:08:27.:08:31.

real chance to make an individual mark at these World Championships.

:08:32.:08:36.

David McDaid had a word with him. The World Championship is normally

:08:37.:08:39.

pretty good, I've been outside the medal is a few times, but it's great

:08:40.:08:43.

to go and get in the finals at the World Championships, feel confident

:08:44.:08:51.

in my routines. He finished third in qualifying in the all-round, it must

:08:52.:08:54.

give you great belief going into the final? It does, yeah, I've done

:08:55.:08:58.

quite a lot of all-round events in my career, I've managed European

:08:59.:09:04.

all-round medals, but never a world medal, it's always been an aim of

:09:05.:09:09.

mine. Who knows if it's possible or not, but to qualify in third is

:09:10.:09:12.

already a great achievement for myself and I want to hit my routines

:09:13.:09:16.

as well as I can. We'll see what happens. I'd love to get in that

:09:17.:09:21.

medal position. Max Whitlock is second in the world, incredible for

:09:22.:09:26.

former. It would be amazing to go round with him. I want to enjoy

:09:27.:09:32.

every minute. You are so reliable, it must be really difficult to

:09:33.:09:36.

maintain consistency over six apparatus. It is, to be honest, I

:09:37.:09:42.

have up and downs in training. A lot of times it doesn't go well. It's

:09:43.:09:48.

the same with every athlete. Fortunately, I have been able to

:09:49.:09:52.

pull it out. I'm not sure why that is. I'm so happy to be able to do

:09:53.:09:59.

that. Dan has qualified. In that top eight of gymnast qualifying with the

:10:00.:10:03.

third highest place, how will it affect his competition? Being with

:10:04.:10:07.

the big guns, and Max Whitlock being in a different group? Dan has enough

:10:08.:10:11.

experience not to worry about being in the same group as Max, he'll get

:10:12.:10:15.

on with his job he's got his personal coach on the floor. Dan is

:10:16.:10:19.

a gymnast to compete in his own world. To be honest I don't think it

:10:20.:10:23.

would really affect him who he was going round with. Let's look at some

:10:24.:10:29.

of the other contenders. Let's talk about the current European champion,

:10:30.:10:42.

you even I have. -- Belly we'd seen him make small, characteristic

:10:43.:10:46.

errors. We'll have to see how he starts tonight. Deng Shudi MIDI

:10:47.:10:57.

Chinese gymnast, so close yesterday. He will try to go out there and pick

:10:58.:11:01.

up a medal today to get them on the medal board for China. In the

:11:02.:11:05.

all-round. He has massive start scores were one of the biggest in

:11:06.:11:11.

the com petition. If he hits 646, he'll be up there. A gymnast from

:11:12.:11:19.

Cuba who has created noise. It's his first major international, he crept

:11:20.:11:24.

under the scene, nobody knew what he was capable of. He finished well up

:11:25.:11:29.

the ranks in convocation. In the training gym everybody has been

:11:30.:11:33.

muttering, who is this? Where's he come from? He's about 19, 20. We

:11:34.:11:37.

know from previous conditions he's qualified for the test event for

:11:38.:11:41.

Rio, it could be good timing for him at 19 years old. Definitely, nobody

:11:42.:11:46.

has heard of him come he's come on the scene, hitting huge scores, if

:11:47.:11:49.

he goes clean he'll be nearly 90, 91 mark. He's a name to look out for. A

:11:50.:11:59.

final word on Uchimura, will he play it safe tonight Coady will we see

:12:00.:12:01.

the flower we are used to seeing? Bearing in mind he pegged off the

:12:02.:12:08.

high bar in the team final? He wouldn't be Uchimura if he didn't go

:12:09.:12:12.

for it, he would be doubting himself if he played safe, he will go for

:12:13.:12:17.

everything and try to get that sixth gold medal. What will we experience

:12:18.:12:23.

tonight, Beth? I hope we see that historic moment, he's such an idol

:12:24.:12:28.

for so many gymnast, even Max really looks up to Uchimura. To be on the

:12:29.:12:31.

podium with him will be massive again. We will stop talking and get

:12:32.:12:35.

straight down to the action. The competition has been going on for

:12:36.:12:39.

quite a while, this is where the gymnast started. Group one, the top

:12:40.:12:42.

eight qualifiers, started on the floor. Uchimura is there, Dan Purvis

:12:43.:12:47.

in that group. The second group, Max Whitlock on pommel horse. 15.7 in

:12:48.:12:53.

the team final, he'll be looking to get to 16. Third group on rings,

:12:54.:13:04.

keep an eye on Nikolai Kuksenkov. We'll head over to the commentary

:13:05.:13:05.

box. COMMENTATOR: Starting this men's

:13:06.:13:16.

all-round final here at the World Championships, Deng Shudi from

:13:17.:13:17.

China. One of the group of gymnast with

:13:18.:13:35.

huge difficulty. We saw that 3.5 twists, immediately punched into a

:13:36.:13:41.

straight somersault. Another super difficult for tourist, immediate

:13:42.:13:49.

2.5. -- difficult full twist. So aware of how much twisting he's

:13:50.:13:55.

doing. Legs out of the first tumble. Exactly the right time to punch the

:13:56.:13:58.

floor for the second. This is beautiful work as well. He shows a

:13:59.:14:03.

really good body lying in all his work. -- body-line. Very well

:14:04.:14:13.

controlled, his legs locked together in the twist. Big, full twisting

:14:14.:14:23.

double back. Shows his ability to do multiple rotations as well as

:14:24.:14:31.

twist. Gets the two second hold. He just needs this big tumble. To start

:14:32.:14:37.

him off really well. And he does, very good triple twist to finish.

:14:38.:14:42.

That was a measure of control. A super start. There was the 1.3

:14:43.:14:50.

twist, the one and three quarters somersault to roll out. 15.133, not

:14:51.:14:57.

bad at all for starters. Danell Leyva, a very talented

:14:58.:15:08.

all-round gymnast, what's he got in the locker? Ooh committee was a bit

:15:09.:15:17.

short, a very big, ambitious tumble. A double straight with two twists.

:15:18.:15:21.

His hands went down, that was a big deduction. Controls that second

:15:22.:15:32.

tumble well. Double Arabian. Having little starters on most of the

:15:33.:15:35.

landings, that is where the marks go. Little bit off the boil, I

:15:36.:15:43.

think. He was impressive in team final. You've got to show complete

:15:44.:15:49.

balance and mastery. The roll-out was good. Whip into...

:15:50.:16:04.

Very good. 2.5 bunch front, good combinations. -- punch front. He

:16:05.:16:11.

looks a little more settled now as he builds up to this final. It's

:16:12.:16:18.

going to be big. Double straight, much better finish than start. He

:16:19.:16:25.

recovered well. Unsettled, Danell Leyva, but he's got five more

:16:26.:16:31.

apparatus. You can see it was very expensive. Danell Leyva, 13.733. A

:16:32.:16:41.

little dent in his ambition. Now the person we've all been waiting to

:16:42.:16:44.

see, Max Whitlock from Great Britain. He has a marvellous routine

:16:45.:16:50.

in the locker, can he bring it out here? Good, solid start. Nice rhythm

:16:51.:17:01.

in different combinations. -- in the front combinations. The second of

:17:02.:17:07.

those nicely negotiated. Keep the rhythm, picks up beautifully.

:17:08.:17:16.

Spindle, no problem. He will come back. Into the triple Russian. A

:17:17.:17:29.

lovely combination. Dismount. He has to go through smoothly and he did. A

:17:30.:17:33.

fabulous start for Max Whitlock. Super start. Well done, Max just

:17:34.:17:45.

what everybody wanted. Simple rhythm in that dismount, clean handstand.

:17:46.:17:54.

Max Whitlock, 16.1. The stuff of dreams, great start.

:17:55.:18:01.

Daniel Purvis. On the floor. Double twist, double back, so beautifully

:18:02.:18:10.

performed. A little stutter before the jump,

:18:11.:18:25.

but it was well controlled tumbling. Really came out of that double front

:18:26.:18:36.

with such conviction. Lovely building of difficulty here. So

:18:37.:18:40.

important to have a difficult routine, but one that you can manage

:18:41.:18:47.

to control as well. Dan has really good lines, good extension through

:18:48.:18:59.

his work. Little bit of originality, stands up with his legs dead

:19:00.:19:04.

straight. He really nails this for the team in qualification. It's such

:19:05.:19:10.

a hard finish. Whip into double Arabian. He nails it again. What a

:19:11.:19:13.

fantastic start for Dan Purvis. Oleg NIF, European champion, comes

:19:14.:19:42.

to the floor. Very sharp, very quick. -- Verniaiev. Yes, nicely

:19:43.:19:56.

done, 3.5 twists into full twist, smooth. He makes it look so easy.

:19:57.:20:06.

Twisting combinations. They really build. But you have to hit them. And

:20:07.:20:29.

his foot is out. Undercut... He's just had one error so far.

:20:30.:20:37.

A light touch, linking to the corner.

:20:38.:20:45.

More twists, slightly lower out of that. And a triple twist to wrap it

:20:46.:20:51.

up. Tiny errors. He means business. 2.5 twists, but there you see his

:20:52.:21:17.

foot is out. 14.975 for Verniaiev. Kohei Uchimura, the defending world

:21:18.:21:22.

champion. This first apparatus is very important. What will he choose?

:21:23.:21:29.

He's got so much in stock. Lovely start. 3.5 into one and a half, how

:21:30.:21:37.

good is that? Full twist... I've lost count on the twist afterwards,

:21:38.:21:39.

but very impressive. This is so clean. And so efficient.

:21:40.:21:54.

A shrug of the shoulders. Under control, composure. Double double.

:21:55.:22:06.

Look at that extension. That is the triple Russian.

:22:07.:22:15.

Such consummate control. One and three quarters roll-out. Look at

:22:16.:22:28.

this for composure. Gathering through the flip. Nice triple twist

:22:29.:22:34.

to finish. Characteristic landing, just a little shuffle.

:22:35.:22:43.

Lovely tumble, he has so much to choose from. Double twist, another

:22:44.:22:57.

twisting skill backward. 15.733. What a start.

:22:58.:23:11.

Max Whitlock on top of the pile-up moment. Kohei Uchimura behind him

:23:12.:23:18.

and Donnell Whittenburg is in third. Not his strongest apparatus, you

:23:19.:23:56.

really needs to be accurate in all the strength parts. A good start.

:23:57.:24:04.

Making sure of the static positions. A safe start for Max Whitlock.

:24:05.:24:14.

Double front. He has to nail that position first time, you can't

:24:15.:24:20.

adjust it. He'll swing on, wait for it to come back, there it is. Double

:24:21.:24:30.

back through the rings. He nails the dismount. There were little problems

:24:31.:24:36.

in the hold parts. He'll be glad to get that one behind him.

:24:37.:24:47.

14.516, his hard apparatus out of the way for Max Whitlock. So, Daniel

:24:48.:24:58.

Purvis started with a good floor, what can he show us on,? -- show was

:24:59.:25:05.

on pommel horse was to mark ease into the swing, got the rhythm

:25:06.:25:11.

going. A nice combination here. Keeping the rhythm, this is good.

:25:12.:25:18.

Tiny flicker of the legs apart. This is going well. Triple Russian, picks

:25:19.:25:23.

up to travel. Tiny flutters of form, but safely

:25:24.:25:37.

through, he'll be delighted with that. A good, solid first apparatus

:25:38.:25:47.

for Dan Purvis. Travels back and forward along the horse. A difficult

:25:48.:25:53.

one to do first. There is the dismount. Safely through.

:25:54.:26:05.

Oleg Verniaiev of the Ukraine, he's had a really good year so far, he'd

:26:06.:26:24.

love to crown it with this title. This is the apparatus that brings

:26:25.:26:26.

him the biggest challenge, you must be consistent.

:26:27.:26:33.

First handstand out of the way, nice legs separation, second handstand

:26:34.:26:46.

short. There will be a deduction. He mustn't use strength. Rescuers the

:26:47.:26:52.

swing. Triple Russian between the handles. Good swinging.

:26:53.:27:03.

Quick through the Russian on one handle, it's good work now, but

:27:04.:27:08.

flutters at the start. Into the handstand shaped... He lost

:27:09.:27:26.

the rhythm. Come on! There will be no dismount and a big deduction.

:27:27.:27:31.

Once again, the pommel horse is his nemesis. Travelling... OK in some

:27:32.:27:43.

parts, but he did lose some rhythm. Here there will be no dismount

:27:44.:27:51.

granted. That is a deduction. Verniaiev, a very costly 13.566.

:27:52.:28:03.

Kohei Uchimura, a look of total concentration. Lovely and clean into

:28:04.:28:15.

the handstand. Not fully extended circles. They are very, very

:28:16.:28:22.

efficient, look at this. Beautiful rhythm with one hand. Very difficult

:28:23.:28:24.

to create. Into the Russian. Travelling up and

:28:25.:28:37.

travelling back. A stock combination these days. And he hops across the

:28:38.:28:44.

horse. I love the way he does that, great stuff will stop Uchimura still

:28:45.:28:47.

on song. Deng Shudi of China, all that time

:28:48.:28:55.

ago we watched his floor routine. Took a long time to focus. Again,

:28:56.:29:23.

lovely extended shape in the swing. Lovely giant travel across the

:29:24.:29:30.

length of the horse. Bumped into it, that will be three tenths. And

:29:31.:29:34.

hesitation. A couple of faults following each other and one for

:29:35.:29:38.

that. Because there was a hesitation. Listen to that bump as

:29:39.:29:44.

he makes sure of his hand position. Nicely through the travels. This

:29:45.:29:57.

will be the transition into the dismount, he holds the handstand

:29:58.:29:59.

shaped, good and efficient. Might shape, this was particularly

:30:00.:30:19.

tidied away he finished the routine. Less flourish, good handstand. He

:30:20.:30:25.

scores 14.4 for pommel horse. Nikolai Kuksenkov of Russia to the

:30:26.:30:42.

vault. Good stride pattern. The ground off. 2.5 twists, very well

:30:43.:30:45.

controlled. Really stylish, well taught gymnast.

:30:46.:31:06.

Blocks off the top, wraps in, he really didn't need the floor well,

:31:07.:31:10.

the four hit him and that is what caused the step. That's back

:31:11.:31:17.

Daniel Levy, nightmare of a start for him, 23rd position. -- Daniel

:31:18.:32:09.

in second place so far after two, Max Whitlock goes to vault. Max has

:32:10.:32:20.

a hugely difficult vault, needs all the power and all the height. The

:32:21.:32:24.

twists and a bit of a starter pack but he controlled it. -- bit of a

:32:25.:32:29.

starter back. Right round on the twists.

:32:30.:32:40.

He launches himself into the air, puts in defeat twists but just

:32:41.:32:45.

doesn't quite hold shape for lending.

:32:46.:33:02.

The judges are so keen on strength positions being held precisely and

:33:03.:33:18.

prolonged. Those two wearer. Lovely control in the circled cross. Good

:33:19.:33:27.

start for Daniel Purvis. Two doubles. Into the controlled. So

:33:28.:33:32.

very good. Times the deal perfectly, lovely.

:33:33.:33:48.

The wind-up. Double double and just a tiny shuffle, good solid rings

:33:49.:33:50.

from damp Purvis -- Daniel Purvis. Have a look at this talented

:33:51.:34:00.

Manrique Larduet. Had some problems on the vault in

:34:01.:34:20.

qualifying but he is hugely powerful. What a vault that was.

:34:21.:34:28.

Lodged in the air, 2.5 twists, fantastic vaulting.

:34:29.:34:37.

Difficulty score of six. Really impressive stuff. that is a very

:34:38.:34:54.

good score. Super vaulting. Uchimura comes to the rings, he has

:34:55.:35:08.

looked absolute perfection so far. What a gymnast he is. Beautiful,

:35:09.:35:17.

into the Maltese. Moves ahead to show control, circle

:35:18.:35:22.

mastery so far. So difficult. Double pike. There is your cross.

:35:23.:35:49.

Giant handstand. Here is the wind-up. Once again, the double

:35:50.:35:57.

double and landed on his feet. Power bars, one of the most improved

:35:58.:36:28.

apparatus in this Championships. -- parallel bars. That was lovely work.

:36:29.:36:33.

Immediate somersault. Difficult turn, up into the

:36:34.:36:49.

handstand. Lovely full turn on one arm while swimming and are

:36:50.:36:54.

beautifully high straddled front somersault. Control in the handstand

:36:55.:37:00.

and then dynamically into the next element. I think there was possibly

:37:01.:37:07.

an error, I expect he intended on to go onto one rail but he has covered

:37:08.:37:13.

well and up into the double front with a half turn, very difficult

:37:14.:37:15.

this month. -- dismount. Really experienced rings worker.

:37:16.:37:41.

Very powerful gymnast. Making absolutely sure he is in the

:37:42.:38:00.

right position. Kick into the cross. Nicely into the

:38:01.:38:19.

Maltese. Good strong combination to the gym. Upright into Maltese. You

:38:20.:38:29.

can use the same moves as long as the way in various. -- varies. To

:38:30.:38:35.

the cross. Beautifully done. Upright into the straddle. The first

:38:36.:38:54.

position you hit. Little bit of adjustment in the giant. Lovely.

:38:55.:38:58.

Double rotation through the rings. As is the enhanced and, sets up four

:38:59.:39:16.

double, double straight, good dismount, good routine from Deng

:39:17.:39:19.

Shudi. His swing is quite remarkable. It is

:39:20.:39:49.

almost a different type of parallel bar work. Just easy swinging.

:39:50.:39:59.

Good control on the one rail. Very difficult the handstand with the

:40:00.:40:07.

hands parallel, lovely tight double tap at somersault. And look at the

:40:08.:40:15.

height on the front somersault. No problem with seeing the landing.

:40:16.:40:21.

Somersault with a half turn to turn yourself around. And another. That

:40:22.:40:31.

time from the long swing. Comes up a big front and a half turn, really

:40:32.:40:37.

good spatial awareness, that was a great routine.

:40:38.:40:44.

The young Cuban, larger et in fourth place. Larduet.

:40:45.:41:19.

Oleh Vernyayev, back in ninth at the moment.

:41:20.:41:28.

Such a slight, light gymnast but hugely powerful as well. Big double

:41:29.:41:37.

front with half-time, what a fantastic vault for such a slight

:41:38.:41:40.

day. That was very, very good indeed.

:41:41.:41:56.

Pumps up into the air, 2.5 somersaults, turns the last half so

:41:57.:42:00.

he can see the landing. Scored out of six. He pulls the knees apart,

:42:01.:42:12.

gets in really tight. That will be a bit of a deduction from the judges,

:42:13.:42:17.

as will that step back. Not much else to take off. Turn eight

:42:18.:42:47.

Uchimura, took an age to focus. We will see why in a few seconds.

:42:48.:42:53.

Half-time, 2.5 twists, beautiful work. Super vault. He is quite

:42:54.:42:57.

pleased with that. Look at this. Half turn. And hangs

:42:58.:43:04.

it round. Well on his way. STUDIO: Uchimura is on form, seeing

:43:05.:43:26.

all of the calmness that we predicted and this competition so

:43:27.:43:34.

far as going textbook. There is his scorer. Bizarrely, it is exactly

:43:35.:43:45.

what he golden qualification. Bath what he scored.

:43:46.:43:51.

What a competition this lad is having, Whittenburg, he fell on the

:43:52.:43:59.

vault but still out there in medal contention and he qualified in 30

:44:00.:44:03.

First Place, he didn't expect to be in the final, he is having the

:44:04.:44:05.

competition of his life,. COMMENTATOR: Was second going into

:44:06.:44:27.

this round. Big wind-up. Caught late but he caught safely. Full turn over

:44:28.:44:36.

the top. Little bit late. The judges will be sharp on this. But he's

:44:37.:44:47.

going through. Squat fall. That might be expensive. OK. He is in

:44:48.:44:57.

control of this apparatus. Just enough. Again, late. He will pay for

:44:58.:45:09.

this. Here is the wind-up, he must stick it. Double double and he

:45:10.:45:15.

needed that. There were errors in the routine. Clear deductions.

:45:16.:46:11.

Larduet. Performing beautifully in these championships. As to hold his

:46:12.:46:24.

concentration. Very good work. He looks really in

:46:25.:46:41.

command. Smooth and swings the tap out up to the handstand, lovely half

:46:42.:46:48.

turn. Double front half turn, fabulous work. Really, the questions

:46:49.:46:55.

have been whether he can hold his concentration but he has done so

:46:56.:46:57.

far. It is turning out to be a bit of a

:46:58.:47:02.

surprise, look at that score. That is his weakest apparatus.

:47:03.:47:31.

Matching what happened to him and qualification.

:47:32.:47:36.

He is going over the top. Very nice. In the straight body. That was when

:47:37.:48:00.

people turn. -- with the full turn. Nicely done.

:48:01.:48:08.

Half-time but he must get it cleanly. Back on song in thrall. --

:48:09.:48:18.

in control. Mostly through the full turn. Big

:48:19.:48:34.

wind-up. Good dismount and he has a decent score. That is a good

:48:35.:48:43.

routine. He was in fifth going into this piece of apparatus, going for

:48:44.:48:45.

everything. He was brave. Couple of good

:48:46.:49:02.

releases in the main group. Puts him up to third.

:49:03.:49:16.

Larduet will be in the parallel bars final and with scores like that that

:49:17.:49:27.

is no surprise. Moving up the field rapidly.

:49:28.:49:42.

Belyavskiy intense at the moment. -- in 10th place. Little waiver, but

:49:43.:49:50.

brought it under control. Tiny bit bent legs on the straddle

:49:51.:50:05.

position. Lots of height and fight but you have to keep your likes

:50:06.:50:09.

tight as well and little flicker of bent knees on the somersault there.

:50:10.:50:17.

All tiny things that the judges deduct. That was better. Smoothly

:50:18.:50:25.

lifted into handstand. Legs locked together nicely. Settles well.

:50:26.:50:31.

Double front, half turn, quite a favoured dismount for many of the

:50:32.:50:38.

gymnasts. His execution scorer will be very high, I'm sure. He got a

:50:39.:50:43.

silver at the Europeans on parallel bars last year. Glad to see things

:50:44.:50:48.

are going his way at this stage of the competition, he has not had much

:50:49.:50:52.

fun on the previous pieces of apparatus. Very talented, very

:50:53.:50:54.

clean. Nicely done, spends his way round,

:50:55.:51:13.

triple twist, credit to him for that.

:51:14.:51:18.

It is quite a high-scoring piece of apparatus. We can see the gymnasts

:51:19.:51:25.

in the top group, a lot of them have fallen away but the others will

:51:26.:51:28.

really build their score. They will do. They have a little more luck

:51:29.:51:35.

with being consistent on the twisting vaults. He took the half

:51:36.:51:39.

turn on and went in for the triple twist, there will be a deduction for

:51:40.:51:42.

not being dead on the red line down the middle.

:51:43.:51:48.

Great Britain's Daniel Purvis. Place.

:51:49.:52:03.

As to nail this. Very good in the control area. Lovely 2.5. Just a

:52:04.:52:14.

little pace forward, that was very good vaulting. That will do, he will

:52:15.:52:22.

certainly take that on vault. He has had a good steady, solid

:52:23.:52:28.

competition. Consistent all the way through. You can see the flip on, he

:52:29.:52:34.

is technically very good. Straight arms. East twists in and by the time

:52:35.:52:41.

he joins his feet, he is on food either side of the red line, very

:52:42.:52:43.

good work. -- on -- one foot. On his way back up. As will be this

:52:44.:53:07.

man. Belyavskiy. Him into ninth. Edging ever closer.

:53:08.:53:14.

Pablo Bragger from Switzerland. Scores 15.133, interesting start.

:53:15.:53:27.

Difficult to work with straight arms, the judges look for the over

:53:28.:53:37.

grip. Nice and smooth. That is the full spin. Somersaults. Nicely done.

:53:38.:53:56.

Solid handstand, and another one. This time with an extra turn. That

:53:57.:54:14.

was a nice, smooth parallel bars. Everything you want to see from

:54:15.:54:15.

parallel bars. We are seeing some very good

:54:16.:54:20.

dismounts. What do you put that down to? It

:54:21.:54:40.

used to be a weakness for the Brits, the Dutch, it is focused on a lot.

:54:41.:54:51.

Talking of the Dutch. What is the inside track on him? He has some big

:54:52.:54:58.

releases, if he gets this he will be through. He did.

:54:59.:55:03.

One more big release to come. He has survived putting the full turn in.

:55:04.:55:18.

Good work. Full turn. Full stops swinging well. Just keep your

:55:19.:55:25.

rhythm, young man. He can nail this if he needs to. And he does. Almost.

:55:26.:55:33.

Well done, Berks, you have one happy coach sat next to me. -- barked

:55:34.:55:40.

barked Bart Deurloo. Shame about that adjustment, but

:55:41.:56:00.

well done. No appeal? I'm happy with that!

:56:01.:56:07.

Arthur Mariano from Brazil. What the competition is the Brazilians had in

:56:08.:56:27.

qualifying. Bowled him. They were delighted and one of the

:56:28.:56:39.

surprise teams. Very clean, good work, one of the reasons why. Good

:56:40.:56:51.

rhythm. Straight legs. Smooth. Just a little bit on the way up to

:56:52.:56:56.

handstand but covered very well. That was really nice. Peaked at the

:56:57.:57:03.

top of the move. The move finished at its maximum. Another handstand

:57:04.:57:10.

with lovely control and immediately double pike and that was one of the

:57:11.:57:22.

best this -- dismounts we have seen. Absolutely. They are determined on

:57:23.:57:27.

their home territory. They have the people to do it. They have lost a

:57:28.:57:33.

couple of their key players, their best gymnast got injured in Glasgow

:57:34.:57:38.

at the end of last year and they are still coming back strong. Lovely.

:57:39.:57:49.

Good parallel bar work. I like this dismount so much because he finished

:57:50.:58:01.

with his chest right up, he didn't finish once the seat landed, he

:58:02.:58:05.

continued the rotation. Very good work. Once the feet landed. Parallel

:58:06.:58:16.

bars was a challenge and everybody had to meet it. So much potential in

:58:17.:58:27.

that apparatus. Whittenburg Currently in the silver medal

:58:28.:58:28.

position spot. At the moment he has dropped down to

:58:29.:58:39.

fifth. He put in an enquiry which would have been to do with the

:58:40.:58:43.

difficulty of his routine but it has been rejected. It can only be to do

:58:44.:58:50.

with the difficulty, of course. It is his weakest apparatus. You are

:58:51.:58:57.

only allowed to make an enquiry against the difficulty score. You

:58:58.:59:01.

cannot make an enquiry against the execution. And sometimes the judges

:59:02.:59:06.

will have another look and decide they should have credited something

:59:07.:59:07.

more. As it stands, Uchimura head of the

:59:08.:59:22.

field. There is the Cuban gymnast, Larduet, mention them at the start

:59:23.:59:26.

of the programme and he is in second, Kuksenkov in third. Max

:59:27.:59:32.

Whitlock is still to go and is just chopping up the parallel bars. --

:59:33.:59:40.

chalking. Uchimura remaining so focused. He got that team title that

:59:41.:59:46.

he saw wanted and now it is time to focus on his individual effort. This

:59:47.:59:51.

man will be thinking very similar thoughts.

:59:52.:00:00.

15.783 behind Kohei Uchimura at this stage. What a competition Larduet is

:00:01.:00:15.

having, two more pieces of apparatus to go. Kuksenkov was there or

:00:16.:00:23.

thereabouts, could this be his year for the world all-round medal?

:00:24.:00:34.

LAUGHTER Super. We're just waiting for a

:00:35.:00:41.

score to come in at the moment. Because of that, Max is having to

:00:42.:00:49.

wait, he's keeping calm, chalking up the parallel bars, making sure

:00:50.:00:53.

everything is right. You don't want to wait too long. Absolutely,

:00:54.:00:58.

there's always that extra bit you can put on the bars, that extra bit

:00:59.:01:03.

of chalk. But there's only so much you can do to occupy this time,

:01:04.:01:09.

difficult time to wait. You will notice that Max has a bag of his own

:01:10.:01:12.

chalk which he brings from his own gym. He is very precise with

:01:13.:01:17.

everything, Max. Everything has got its place. Mariano's score is about

:01:18.:01:30.

to be posted. There it is, 14.8. Very good score for parallel bars.

:01:31.:01:35.

It releases the parallel bars for Max Whitlock. There he is with his

:01:36.:01:39.

fourth piece of apparatus in this men's all-round world final. Very

:01:40.:01:46.

accurate, nice double, knees pressed together. Secure in the handstand,

:01:47.:01:54.

set up the double to keep the swing. Smith.

:01:55.:02:01.

Good, safe combination. Not adjusting his hands, first-time

:02:02.:02:14.

accurate, this is good. Upright, a big salto, keeping that rhythm.

:02:15.:02:19.

That's the thing about this routine. There you go. Good style, good form.

:02:20.:02:33.

Just shaved the chalk on the top of that wood. Here he is with a nailed

:02:34.:02:39.

dismount, that's a fantastic effort, he will be close to that score. Well

:02:40.:02:45.

done, Max! He needs just over 15 to going to second. But he's doing a

:02:46.:02:51.

job for Great Britain at the moment. He certainly is gone he is greeted

:02:52.:02:56.

by his coach as he comes off the podium. He looks good, he looks

:02:57.:03:01.

relaxed, that was as good a routine I've seen for a long time from Max.

:03:02.:03:05.

Lovely rhythm all the way through, look at the style, the form, the kit

:03:06.:03:11.

out, good rhythm, good control. Classic parallel bar work. You look

:03:12.:03:16.

for smooth swing, held handstands and risky combinations. He produced

:03:17.:03:25.

something very, very special. And this dismount, well... Find his way

:03:26.:03:30.

around, look at the style on the legs there. Tucks his toes ready for

:03:31.:03:40.

the landing and nails it. Over 15.783 would be a golden score as it

:03:41.:03:46.

stands on the fourth piece. He's not going to be far away, you know. They

:03:47.:03:53.

are having a nice day. Come on! Good old Scott, does a great job. Even

:03:54.:04:00.

Dan Purvis is on his feet. Amazing. Because we were waiting for the

:04:01.:04:05.

gymnast's score coming in, everybody watching he gets 15.1. I thought it

:04:06.:04:11.

would be worth more than that, it was clean, it was difficult. He is

:04:12.:04:17.

composed, isn't it? He has the high bar and the floor to go, if you were

:04:18.:04:21.

watching the men's team final, goodness me, what a floor routine

:04:22.:04:27.

Max did. After four pieces Kohei Uchimura leads ahead of Max

:04:28.:04:31.

Whitlock. Manrique Larduet is currently in third position. Dan

:04:32.:04:38.

Purvis in seven. Still, and Albert and Berg, still in amongst it. --

:04:39.:04:46.

Donnell Whitten Berg. He's got to his first apparatus, the high bars.

:04:47.:04:56.

What a series he had before that. Danell Leyva, he is still way down

:04:57.:05:03.

the field in 22nd. Two more pieces to go in this men's all-round final.

:05:04.:05:08.

Let's have a word with Dan Keating 's and better travel in the

:05:09.:05:12.

commentary box. We've seen so many of the gymnast we talked about at

:05:13.:05:17.

the start of the programme, the lead runners, they've fallen away, Beth?

:05:18.:05:23.

They have, it shows how difficult gymnastics is nowadays, the

:05:24.:05:25.

difference between perfection and errors is so small. Unfortunately

:05:26.:05:31.

some of those top runners have fallen along the way maybe by going

:05:32.:05:34.

for that difficulty that has not paid after night. We'll look at Dan

:05:35.:05:41.

Purvis's vault now, talk us through this from your perspective. It's one

:05:42.:05:46.

of his more solid pieces and he's been doing this vault for a long

:05:47.:05:49.

time now, couldn't have asked for any more, got round to his feet,

:05:50.:05:53.

only a small want him to step he'll be happy. Happy with seven? -- small

:05:54.:06:00.

one tenth step. He's got parallel bars coming up, one of his strongest

:06:01.:06:06.

apparatus. Hopefully he can get 15.4 to pull him up the rankings. A word

:06:07.:06:12.

on the Cuban gymnast, Larduet. He's having the petition of his life.

:06:13.:06:16.

Before we came here everybody was talking about him, weren't sure how

:06:17.:06:21.

he would compete, he's proven a lot of doubters wrong and shown how good

:06:22.:06:25.

a gymnast years. How impressed are you with Max Whitlock at the moment

:06:26.:06:28.

from the psychological point of view? He had a tough piece because

:06:29.:06:34.

he had to wait for so long, still boarded up, he has a great

:06:35.:06:40.

relationship with his coach, Scott. He stayed out of the way of watching

:06:41.:06:44.

other people. Max doesn't focus on what anyone else is doing, he only

:06:45.:06:49.

concentrate on his job. Doing a fantastic job, each piece, he's

:06:50.:06:53.

taking it piece by piece. Can't ask any more of him, he has to keep his

:06:54.:06:58.

concentration for the last two pieces. At an interesting stage with

:06:59.:07:02.

the all-round competition, with deep and ultimate peace to come to finish

:07:03.:07:06.

on a high. We talked about Max Whitlock's floor, but how will he

:07:07.:07:10.

feel going into the high bar routine? Nervous, you'll be nervous

:07:11.:07:16.

before each piece of apparatus, but he's doing so well. He's more

:07:17.:07:21.

excited now to finish the competition, he is doing so well.

:07:22.:07:24.

With the floor coming last, he'll be pushing to get a good score to lead

:07:25.:07:29.

him into the floor. What are the key points to look at in this high bar

:07:30.:07:34.

routine? Key moments from Max to get through? Trying to hit handstands

:07:35.:07:40.

out of each of his turns and when he does the dismount he will be trying

:07:41.:07:44.

to stick it, basically, not giving any temps away. He is warming up,

:07:45.:07:51.

eyes and relaxed. -- not giving away any temps.

:07:52.:07:58.

You know what it feels like, Beth, to compete on the bars at this

:07:59.:08:05.

level. The key to it is to stay as relaxed as possible. It is, stay

:08:06.:08:10.

relaxed, remember what your coach tells you in training. After time

:08:11.:08:14.

you will find when these gymnast put their arm up to the judge, your body

:08:15.:08:19.

goes into autopilot, he'll have done that routine thousands of times.

:08:20.:08:24.

Hopefully it will pay off. It looks as though... We can see the five

:08:25.:08:28.

times world champion, looks as though he could be on the right road

:08:29.:08:32.

to get the sixth title. He could be, but we saw what happened in the

:08:33.:08:37.

team final, he was right on the last beat and had to go through clean,

:08:38.:08:41.

you can never speak to see it gymnastics, it's the beauty of the

:08:42.:08:45.

sport, it literally goes down to the last routine and whether you can

:08:46.:08:50.

stay on your feet. He is looking as cool as he would want to at the

:08:51.:08:54.

moment, Kohei Uchimura. With a 50 piece of apparatus, a reminder the

:08:55.:08:57.

top group are on the parallel bars, the second group on the high bar,

:08:58.:09:02.

the third on the floor and the fourth group on pommel horse.

:09:03.:09:09.

So, Larduet will be the first gymnast to go. The Cuban gymnast.

:09:10.:09:20.

Silver medal place at the moment. He came here to make his mark and a lot

:09:21.:09:25.

of people are watching. If he can get a medal here, he'll get himself

:09:26.:09:31.

a place at the Olympics. You have to go back to 1976, Roberto Richards,

:09:32.:09:36.

the last Cuban to really make an impression on the world scene. Here

:09:37.:09:42.

we have another. If he does that... It would be well worth it, he's an

:09:43.:09:46.

exciting young talent, 19 years of age. He put in a score over 15 in

:09:47.:09:51.

qualification, he's more than capable. We know he's got an

:09:52.:09:54.

unbelievable floor routine. So, this is to stay on track for a

:09:55.:10:02.

medal. Nice easy start, half turn over the

:10:03.:10:19.

top. First release, half turn in the street Tkatchev. Very smooth.

:10:20.:10:24.

Favouring the Tkatchev group for releases. All of them have been very

:10:25.:10:32.

accurate. For turn. A very popular combination. He's looking smooth and

:10:33.:10:41.

clean. He's got to complete that turn. The one arm swing is always so

:10:42.:10:46.

effective, but you can only do it once. Through the cross, the full

:10:47.:10:54.

turn. He set up the dismount. Superb, just a tiny Hop/ he really

:10:55.:11:01.

has put in one competition so far. One apparatus to go. With a landing

:11:02.:11:07.

like that and thoughts edge to the floor, this gymnast must be very

:11:08.:11:11.

excited at the moment. Very excited, very excited coach as well. It won't

:11:12.:11:16.

have escaped the notice of Kohei Uchimura that he is being chased

:11:17.:11:24.

along here. Two years ago, Kohei Uchimura won gold on the bars at the

:11:25.:11:29.

World Championships. He needs all his periods here. He'll call upon

:11:30.:11:33.

it. Look at that shape on one rail, superb. The full turn forwards.

:11:34.:11:40.

Again. Rock-solid in handstands. Half turn. He's hitting handstands

:11:41.:11:49.

every time. Keeping the swing smooth from the release is very important.

:11:50.:11:58.

Very good. Half turn, keeps his rhythm. Look at this, a multitude of

:11:59.:12:05.

doubles. Suarez, that time, from giant. Different name, different

:12:06.:12:12.

style. Look at how that handstand is set for the dismount. What a

:12:13.:12:16.

cracker! Beautiful performance, superb. Five down, want to go for

:12:17.:12:26.

Kohei Uchimura. Only one way to respond when did people snapping at

:12:27.:12:33.

your heels are doing well. A much more difficult routine than he

:12:34.:12:36.

normally performs comedy knows he's got a fight on his hands and it's

:12:37.:12:41.

bringing out the best him. Is got such difficulty, such a repertoire,

:12:42.:12:46.

he could select from it. To suit the occasion. Absolutely.

:12:47.:12:54.

Whittenburg, the powerhouse takes to the floor. Six going into this

:12:55.:12:58.

rotation. I love that first little hop into a

:12:59.:13:12.

1.5 twist, immediate punch double front. And then the double straight

:13:13.:13:19.

back with twist. Such difficult work. Immediate double pike. It's

:13:20.:13:26.

really breathtaking. The difficulty of this work. Anything the judges

:13:27.:13:35.

deduct will be the style, feat not fully stretched, the handstand just

:13:36.:13:39.

a little bit edgy, but in terms of dynamics, it's fabulous. Here we go,

:13:40.:13:46.

two and a half twist, front full, his feet lock onto the floor.

:13:47.:13:53.

Very nice and speedy in the one and a half twist and the one and three

:13:54.:14:05.

quarters. This has been fabulous. Big breath, it's something special,

:14:06.:14:11.

what have we got here? Half in, half out, in the pike position. Really, a

:14:12.:14:18.

great tumbling display. I simply cannot believe those landings, one

:14:19.:14:21.

after another after another. He's not doing easy stuff. Oh no,

:14:22.:14:26.

absolute mustard, that was, superhot routine. A chance to see Larduet

:14:27.:14:36.

dismount. Talking of good landings. Superb, 15.333. Great work, really,

:14:37.:14:46.

he's producing, isn't it? I tell you what, you know, Kohei Uchimura

:14:47.:14:52.

scored 15.4 in qualification, is got 15.833, he just widens the gap,

:14:53.:14:57.

giving him... He will need that little gap when it comes to the

:14:58.:15:01.

floor routine. I think he'll need the gap he finishes on the high bar.

:15:02.:15:06.

We saw him in edgy on the high by yesterday. Goodness me,

:15:07.:15:11.

absolutely... What a thought to revisit that is, Chris. Nikolai

:15:12.:15:21.

Kuksenkov takes to the floor. Great style, not immensely difficult, but

:15:22.:15:25.

you need precision. Even snapping heels together once he's made the

:15:26.:15:31.

landing. So far, finding an error on the second double pass. A nice kick

:15:32.:15:44.

out. Good, simple link. Got to go around three times to get the D

:15:45.:15:45.

value. Hold the handstand. He's in control

:15:46.:15:54.

of his routine. Checking where he is, waiting for

:15:55.:16:21.

the bell. A big Paul. The triple twist. Just a tiny adjustment. He

:16:22.:16:33.

came from low down, he is building. 14.666 for Kuksenkov. He was fourth

:16:34.:16:37.

going in, he stays there as it stands at the moment, one more piece

:16:38.:16:41.

for him. And look at that, 15.266, it seems harsh. I thought so, I

:16:42.:16:47.

thought it was immensely difficult and he was in control all the way.

:16:48.:16:51.

Those landings... Yeah, little bit harshly dealt with.

:16:52.:16:58.

Uchimura ahead of Larduet. Whittenburg third, Kuksenkov fourth.

:16:59.:17:08.

Max Whitlock is still to go on the high bar. He's deep and ultimate

:17:09.:17:13.

gymnast to go. -- he is deep and ultimate gymnast. -- the

:17:14.:17:18.

penultimate. is attention will turn to the high

:17:19.:17:28.

bar, no doubt he has been going through that move in the training

:17:29.:17:31.

gym the past few days. I'm sure he will have. He looks very steely

:17:32.:17:37.

determined, Uchimura. Sometimes the almost looks over casual, as though

:17:38.:17:41.

it's a bit of a game. It doesn't look like a game tonight, I think

:17:42.:17:44.

you would very much want to keep hold of this and the record.

:17:45.:17:53.

Deng Shudi is in fifth at the moment, thereof thereabouts, it's

:17:54.:17:58.

very, very close between third and seventh. China led the way in the

:17:59.:18:08.

development of the parallel bars, they were on their own for a long

:18:09.:18:13.

while, but now the gap has closed. A nice, clean double pike, another

:18:14.:18:19.

one. Two doubles. He's only four moves in. Lovely control. Almost

:18:20.:18:29.

lost it. It's the third like double. -- pike double.

:18:30.:18:36.

Just to mix it up. Tip out with release.

:18:37.:18:53.

This is nice work here. The Chinese reminding us they are pretty good on

:18:54.:19:04.

this apparatus. That is double proof, great dismount. Well, Deng

:19:05.:19:11.

Shudi scored over 15.5 in qualification, he's going to move up

:19:12.:19:15.

the field. Years, we saw this in the team final, when China came to

:19:16.:19:19.

parallel bars, they let up the table. SPEAKS FRENCH. Yes, we saw

:19:20.:19:25.

this. It is really their piece. -- yes, we saw this.

:19:26.:19:31.

Such a stylish, good gymnast, but we've already seen an error today.

:19:32.:19:42.

He needs to be really precise here. That was lovely, the scope of

:19:43.:19:51.

Tkatchev. Straddle with a turn, good swing out of it, he didn't falter at

:19:52.:19:57.

all. A nice pirouettes. Needs to be on quickly. There we are, full turn

:19:58.:20:04.

into the hop, over the bar. Those difficulties linked together give

:20:05.:20:09.

you the bonuses. It's been cleaned so far. And this, the swing that he

:20:10.:20:15.

does so beautifully. The only gymnast in this comp addition to be

:20:16.:20:22.

doing it. Up, relatively quiet dismount, full twist in the double

:20:23.:20:27.

straight. A good outing for him, a steady job. Nice to see him doing

:20:28.:20:33.

clean work, he's always been capable and hasn't had the best of

:20:34.:20:38.

competition is. Lovely, straight arms on all his swinging. And this

:20:39.:20:47.

beautiful pike. You can see the shoulders in a dislocated grasp.

:20:48.:20:53.

Very difficult. Lovely style, just one twist. When you think we've seen

:20:54.:20:59.

the young Cuban gymnast at three twist into the dismount. It's the

:21:00.:21:04.

classic Russian style, to do everything so beautifully and

:21:05.:21:09.

perfectly. 14.466. It may not be the most difficult, but it was

:21:10.:21:10.

impressive. 59.33. A huge score, he pops up into

:21:11.:21:27.

third. -- 15 .933. It's getting very exciting.

:21:28.:21:38.

He's got some good work, Deurloo. There's the double after the half

:21:39.:21:46.

twist. If he nails these landings, it's a difficult routine. Will he do

:21:47.:21:50.

a double twist out of this? He does. One and a half through to the

:21:51.:21:57.

double. Nice double pike, solid landing.

:21:58.:22:04.

Full twist. This has always been a problem, will he do three turns

:22:05.:22:17.

consumer today he did. He is focused and it's looking good. Held the

:22:18.:22:29.

handstand. He needs to kick this one out. Which he does nicely. One more

:22:30.:22:39.

double to come. The Arabian approach. He needs to nail it. It's

:22:40.:22:44.

a good one, just a slip to the side. That was a good Floor Exercise, I'm

:22:45.:22:50.

delighted for him. Really nice work, very stylish performance, controlled

:22:51.:22:57.

performance. I was very impressed. 15.2 for Bart Deurloo. Judges were

:22:58.:23:04.

impressed, too. The biggest score of the day for him. Well, if ever,

:23:05.:23:11.

there was a key routine in a gymnast's career, this would be it

:23:12.:23:13.

for Max Whitlock. Good luck, son. Currently in silver medal position.

:23:14.:23:31.

He needs 15.316 to maintain silver. And this start needs to be perfectly

:23:32.:23:41.

performed. Oh dear! He went for the full stretch. You have to really go

:23:42.:23:49.

for catching on straight arms. And he just was a little bit too far

:23:50.:23:55.

away. You have to go for broke. Dear, dear me. You can see he knew

:23:56.:24:03.

he wanted to be able to swing out of it. He got his hands over, but not

:24:04.:24:08.

the part of the hand guards that hangs onto the bar. There are big

:24:09.:24:15.

test for him now, he's got to control his disappointment and go

:24:16.:24:20.

through cleanly. He starts in the forward swing, good, dislocation. He

:24:21.:24:28.

doesn't link the two elements. He has settled a bit. Full pirouette.

:24:29.:24:37.

The one and a half. Cleanly on with the hand. Good. Into handstand with

:24:38.:24:50.

the half turn. The pirouette phase performed confidently. The hop with

:24:51.:24:57.

the full turn. Dismount. Two very good twists, lovely landing. But

:24:58.:25:00.

that was the element that let him down on day one as well. Max

:25:01.:25:07.

Whitlock waves to the appreciative crowd. An awful lot of guts and

:25:08.:25:13.

determination shown there. After his fall. Huge. And what an effort it's

:25:14.:25:21.

been all the way around. Just one moment. Dan Purvis. He says, come

:25:22.:25:32.

on, to himself. He's had his own private battles with this apparatus

:25:33.:25:36.

and in recent years conquered it. Let's see if he can go through as

:25:37.:25:43.

well as he can. Half turn in the under a semi of the peach.

:25:44.:25:52.

Peach am a tiny adjustment needed. Tiny hand adjustments. Solid and

:25:53.:26:03.

determined, this is. Come on. He's set it up nicely. And

:26:04.:26:16.

he's landed beautifully. Such a consistent man under pressure. Very

:26:17.:26:23.

impressive stuff. Well done, Dan. You could see the determination in

:26:24.:26:32.

his face. Dan is in that milling, really, of the gymnasts between

:26:33.:26:35.

fourth and seventh, it's very, very close. So stylish, such a good

:26:36.:26:44.

technician. His arms exactly where they should be. He's a lovely lad,

:26:45.:26:57.

he's a gentleman. 12.833 for Max. He's down in sixth. He probably

:26:58.:27:01.

didn't get credited with the element. They have to decide whether

:27:02.:27:05.

you get a momentary, he obviously didn't. -- get a momentary hang. The

:27:06.:27:20.

Swiss another team who had a mightily impressive championship.

:27:21.:27:23.

Winding up the full twisting double back somersault over the bar. The

:27:24.:27:33.

stoop Tkatchev with a half turn. Into handstand. And another

:27:34.:27:44.

Tkatchev. The one and a half terms. -- turns. He links the two difficult

:27:45.:27:53.

elements. The forward grip just fulfils that requirement. The hop

:27:54.:27:58.

full turn. He's built his difficulty, built his dismount, two

:27:59.:28:02.

twists, just a little hop. Very efficient work. 15.2. Matching his

:28:03.:28:09.

swinging elements on the parallel bars. Indeed, the Swiss have gone

:28:10.:28:14.

for style over difficulty and it has paid off this Championships.

:28:15.:28:23.

Tentative wait for Dan Purvis. 15.4. He's in fifth place. You can never

:28:24.:28:31.

write that guy off, terrific. Well, Dan really seems to have made the

:28:32.:28:35.

apparatus he had a problem on a couple of years ago his strength.

:28:36.:28:39.

The rings and the parallel bars have so improved. That is where champions

:28:40.:28:43.

come from, make your weakness for strength. Speaking of champions, the

:28:44.:28:49.

current world and European and now takes to the parallel bars. Oleg

:28:50.:28:58.

Verniaiev. Fabulous apparatus for him, he has been in the 16s

:28:59.:29:02.

regularly this year on the Grand Prix circuit. Look at that start,

:29:03.:29:10.

keen and crisp. Half term, tiny adjustment with the hands. Extended

:29:11.:29:18.

on one rail. First adjustment he has needed with his hands. This is

:29:19.:29:22.

lovely work, I tell you. Clean. And he's lost the shape. Such

:29:23.:29:40.

a pity. Brings it back under control. Look at that. Well, lovely

:29:41.:29:57.

routine. He's still going to get a good score. One little flicker.

:29:58.:30:01.

He'll have another go because he's in the parallel bars final. I guess

:30:02.:30:05.

he would say having already mucked things up, if I had to do a poor

:30:06.:30:10.

routine, better today than in the final. This is the thing, at every

:30:11.:30:14.

opportunity to feel the equipment. Especially something like parallel

:30:15.:30:18.

bars, they have a lot of bounce now. Controlled it beautifully. On one of

:30:19.:30:23.

the most simple elements, forward over grasp pirouette, he loses his

:30:24.:30:30.

body shape. You never can tell. Just lacking concentration, do you think,

:30:31.:30:34.

on something relatively easy? He thought he was home and dry. He was

:30:35.:30:39.

quite near the end of the bars, he's perfected the length of the flight,

:30:40.:30:43.

the way he can... In the half term, edging closer and closer. Anyway,

:30:44.:30:44.

wasn't to be. I like this guy, I think he is going

:30:45.:31:05.

to be one of the exciting new stars of gymnastics. Lots of energy on the

:31:06.:31:13.

high bar. Good pirouette, got his hand on nice and early. Again, 1.5

:31:14.:31:18.

turns. Straight into the two difficult

:31:19.:31:29.

elements. Plenty of swing, no hesitation. Correcting himself as he

:31:30.:31:40.

is working. Kicks it up high, two twist is, very explosive. He looks

:31:41.:31:47.

like he is enjoying himself. That will keep him in the top ten. He was

:31:48.:31:53.

ninth going into the rotation. Lovely to see, it is exuberant. Just

:31:54.:31:59.

18 years old, the minimum you can be for this competition. He is

:32:00.:32:04.

certainly enjoying being here. To make the top 20, you are only

:32:05.:32:13.

allowed two gymnasts per country, so he is in good company with Uchimura.

:32:14.:32:22.

Kept Tanaka out as well. That is something he can tell his

:32:23.:32:29.

grandchildren. He is exciting and he is excited himself. Useful pair of

:32:30.:32:37.

joint and exuberance. -- useful air of Joy and exuberance.

:32:38.:32:49.

16 for the parallel bars. With a wobble. Looks like he will retain

:32:50.:32:56.

his parallel bars world title. now we will have a chat with Beth

:32:57.:33:37.

and an oil gymnasts are warming up for their final piece of apparatus.

:33:38.:33:43.

Awful moment to go back to, the high bar routine. Bit too much

:33:44.:33:54.

adrenaline, his kick was just a little bit too high, so pushed him

:33:55.:34:01.

over the bar and he was an inch off of catching it and unfortunately he

:34:02.:34:07.

missed it. Was going so well for him, the courage and determination

:34:08.:34:12.

to get back up and keep going. He did well to get back up and finish

:34:13.:34:16.

his routine because he would have been sold disappointed to have that

:34:17.:34:19.

fall but the competition is not over yet, anything can happen, so

:34:20.:34:23.

hopefully he can have a positive frame of mind and go to the floor

:34:24.:34:31.

and have a good routine. He put in a great parallel bars routine with

:34:32.:34:37.

Daniel Purvis. He would have seen him falling because he was waiting

:34:38.:34:41.

for his turn, so it might have helped him and he has to do it for

:34:42.:34:45.

Macs as well, he might think, steady routine and has got a high bar left

:34:46.:34:47.

now. Uchimura with one piece to go. We

:34:48.:34:55.

have seen Max fall on the high bar and Uchimura fell on the high bar in

:34:56.:34:59.

the team final but watching him on parallel bars and he looks so cool.

:35:00.:35:05.

He looks unstoppable and seen Max have that fall, she will have a sigh

:35:06.:35:09.

of relief because Max was right on his tail and he knew he had to have

:35:10.:35:13.

a clean high bar but now he knows that, he can afford a mistake and

:35:14.:35:19.

will feel more relaxed. This is the classic kind of Olympic competition,

:35:20.:35:22.

the Olympic rotation for you do finish on high bar and it really is

:35:23.:35:28.

the blue band event and wraps up the competition in style. It is, he had

:35:29.:35:35.

the problem in the team. Talking about the mixed rotation, Uchimura

:35:36.:35:39.

looks so much more calm, for the team he was desperate to pick up the

:35:40.:35:42.

gold medal because he never had it but he already has five world

:35:43.:35:47.

all-round titles in his bag, so just seems much more chilled out and

:35:48.:35:50.

hopefully he can finish this competition with a great high bar

:35:51.:35:55.

and seal the title. The Cuban is definitely chasing him.

:35:56.:35:59.

COMMENTATOR: We will now join Whittenburg on the pommel horse. Has

:36:00.:36:10.

had a great competition. He is currently in fifth position. Good

:36:11.:36:11.

luck on pommel horse. He is not the right shape for pommel

:36:12.:36:27.

horse. He is going well. Little bit heavy.

:36:28.:36:31.

My goodness, he does not want to part company with it. He has spiked

:36:32.:36:39.

but he is going through. Forwards and backwards. He will get technical

:36:40.:36:45.

deductions but he will not come off until he needs to. Good dismount,

:36:46.:36:54.

well done. That is it, has competition is over, all six pieces

:36:55.:36:57.

of apparatus and he certainly didn't let himself down. He didn't and he

:36:58.:37:05.

did actually have a fall on the vault, so this is pretty impressive

:37:06.:37:06.

scoring for tonight. That shape is not the classic pommel

:37:07.:37:15.

horse ship, has to be extended from the shoulders, little bit piked.

:37:16.:37:25.

They can deduct for every circle you are doing in that shape.

:37:26.:37:31.

Nicely settles into the strength element. French gymnasts always very

:37:32.:37:50.

stylish, good extension through the hips.

:37:51.:37:58.

Not quite fully down, the shoulders didn't stop in the film straight

:37:59.:38:09.

line. The swinging is lovely. It's to lock out in this handstand. Just

:38:10.:38:15.

travelled through the handstand, has another go at it. Manages to block

:38:16.:38:20.

it out, into the dismount. That was a shame. He just snatched at the

:38:21.:38:23.

dismount. He was a little bit unsettled. And

:38:24.:38:34.

then really didn't let himself use all of his swing.

:38:35.:38:42.

The third group, the second group are over on the floor on the fourth

:38:43.:38:58.

grade or on the rings. -- fourth group.

:38:59.:39:09.

Deng Shudi just waiting for the judges as his team-mate went a

:39:10.:39:16.

little bit earlier. Deng Shudi was in third. They have

:39:17.:39:38.

been very quiet, the Chinese. They are still there and they are

:39:39.:39:48.

working, working in the background. They have got big difficulties cause

:39:49.:39:52.

Andy have struggled to cope with the difficulty in some of the

:39:53.:39:55.

competitions but he seems much more settled today. He scored 14.7 in

:39:56.:40:02.

qualification. Now then. It will not be incredibly

:40:03.:40:22.

difficult, but it will be stylish. Mice have turn, keeps the swing. --

:40:23.:40:28.

nice half turn. it is not spectacular but it is

:40:29.:40:42.

precise. Watch the body shape change, here

:40:43.:41:03.

comes the dismount. Double double. Just piked down. That is a solid

:41:04.:41:11.

routine, that is a bid for a medal. He has been solid all the way round,

:41:12.:41:19.

really. Starting to look quite experienced, able to handle himself.

:41:20.:41:28.

Lovely, good basic swing. Adapted to the more difficult skill. That is

:41:29.:41:34.

very nice. Over to the floor. Mariano just

:41:35.:41:57.

chalking up. Brazil usually produce very good floor workers.

:41:58.:42:05.

Let's see what Arthur Mariano can do. Very nice and swing and double

:42:06.:42:20.

page to open with. Smooth and stylish in the roll-out.

:42:21.:42:27.

Lovely control in the handstand. Just brushes the feet on the floor

:42:28.:42:38.

as he sticks up to handstand again. Mace light work. Double twist front,

:42:39.:42:48.

it looked from this angle that he was very low. But he got his feet

:42:49.:42:55.

down well and followed it with another twisting series. And again.

:42:56.:43:01.

He is very aware of his landings, hours spent practising. Big run.

:43:02.:43:12.

Full twisting double back, very nice work. Didn't really give much away

:43:13.:43:19.

as well. On target for home games in Rio. They have really got their act

:43:20.:43:25.

together, the Brazilians, they gave us a warning a couple of World

:43:26.:43:29.

Championships and all but this is developing strength upon strength.

:43:30.:43:34.

The 1.5 into the 1.5. After maintain the height of the two tumbles. 2.5.

:43:35.:43:44.

Front fool. So difficult to differentiate all

:43:45.:43:54.

the different twists and they practised them so often.

:43:55.:43:59.

Will it be good enough for bronze? Incredible work. Danell Leyva, the

:44:00.:44:18.

crowd pleaser on high bar. Not having a great competition at all.

:44:19.:44:23.

Can he find a magic touch? This is his favourite apparatus. Trademark

:44:24.:44:32.

arms to the site, nicely done. He is at home here. Another big wind-up,

:44:33.:44:40.

another big release. As he found the magic touch at last? Little bit late

:44:41.:44:49.

there. Back into the swing. He lost the ship, what a shame. The big

:44:50.:44:56.

release is fine. Swinging out of the pirouette combination and just lost

:44:57.:45:00.

the tension in the body. He really has been off-colour all day. He is

:45:01.:45:04.

such an exciting gymnast, such a gritty competitor and yet from the

:45:05.:45:09.

first moment he just hasn't been At The Races. There is the turn, quite

:45:10.:45:17.

difficult. Normally his body is one of his strengths. He lost that

:45:18.:45:21.

they're on the way he came. He will carry on. He will continue the

:45:22.:45:29.

fireworks before the big finish. I like his high bar. Lots of touch and

:45:30.:45:32.

flavour. That's nice, back into it. There is the wind-up. Beautifully

:45:33.:45:55.

done. That's the mentality need at the top level to come back from a

:45:56.:45:59.

fall and still get the landing. What a dismount. The score is in. 15.

:46:00.:46:06.

Great all-round competition. Max Whitlock for Great Britain on

:46:07.:46:13.

the floor. How much has the fault affected him?

:46:14.:46:26.

Not at all on the first 2.5 twists. Beautifully done.

:46:27.:46:34.

The trademark coming up. Keeps the rhythm. Beautiful. What mental

:46:35.:46:52.

strength. To produce this so far. After the fall from the high bar.

:46:53.:47:03.

Twists his way through. Yet another immaculate pass. Come on. Nicely

:47:04.:47:18.

through. 1.5 twists. Contact with the shoulders. Triple twist. Nailed.

:47:19.:47:28.

That is the way to come back, that's why he is world class. What a finish

:47:29.:47:38.

for Max Whitlock. The Hydro erupts for their favourite gymnast. He

:47:39.:47:45.

showed his class there, never mind the disappointment.

:47:46.:47:53.

Max needs an enormous score to go ahead of Deng Shudi. 16.55.

:47:54.:48:13.

Daniel Purvis wraps up his six pieces of apparatus on the high bar.

:48:14.:48:22.

Confident, swings well, catches well. Lovely one arm work. Super

:48:23.:48:46.

dislocation into the hop over the bar. Keep it going. Another with a

:48:47.:48:58.

half turn. Smooth. He has become a really stylish gymnast. Up.

:48:59.:49:04.

Dismount. Two twists. He has given everything tonight. He has been

:49:05.:49:09.

absolutely fantastic. What a show from Daniel Purvis. Mr consistency.

:49:10.:49:19.

What an incredible performance from both of the British lads. Absolutely

:49:20.:49:31.

fantastic. I'm so impressed with both of them.

:49:32.:49:48.

Kazuma Kaya. Eighth highest qualifier. Nine is going into this

:49:49.:49:59.

piece of apparatus. He finishes on floor.

:50:00.:50:05.

Very precise on the landings. He has learnt the landing technique. Can he

:50:06.:50:35.

twist as well as he can somersault. Not difficult. Very precise.

:50:36.:50:43.

2.5 twists and filled twist, is nice work.

:50:44.:50:52.

Just the double twist to set up the final. This surely is a gymnast to

:50:53.:51:05.

watch in the future. Triple twist and is pretty impressive right now.

:51:06.:51:12.

Seemed to hang in the air as he wrapped it in and continued to

:51:13.:51:18.

twist. You see the rest of the team watching on. He is an exciting

:51:19.:51:24.

gymnast. Totally focused at the start. Daniel Purvis is in third at

:51:25.:51:29.

the moment. When I have, never write him off.

:51:30.:52:03.

Eibar is one of his best pieces. He really is a fabulous gymnast. He

:52:04.:52:23.

pressurises himself quite a lot. Have turn, lovely into the straddle.

:52:24.:52:28.

He has got such rhythm, nothing looks like a struggle. That is mark

:52:29.:52:34.

of his gymnastics, made a bit of an error. Didn't link the two moves.

:52:35.:52:40.

Never loses form. Makes it all look easy. Very naturalist Eilish. --

:52:41.:52:51.

stylish. He certainly fought back every inch

:52:52.:53:03.

of the way. He has had a goal. I am surprised with how he has come back

:53:04.:53:09.

from a week start. He will challenge for top place here. But was too

:53:10.:53:14.

late, was the comeback too late. That's the question.

:53:15.:53:23.

He thought he was worth a bit more. He loves the competition though.

:53:24.:53:37.

Larduet needs a good score to go ahead of Deng Shudi. Look at that

:53:38.:53:52.

start. Beautiful double front. Big tumbling have turn in the second of

:53:53.:53:53.

the pike. Big stuff. Both somersaults high and the second

:53:54.:54:01.

one was great. Gates his way to the corner.

:54:02.:54:26.

Maximise the run-up. Beautiful style.

:54:27.:54:35.

Talk about excitement, what a future this young man has got.

:54:36.:54:42.

It is big, it has to be. He almost lost it. Kept it at the end. He did

:54:43.:54:54.

well to contain all of that power. What an all-round debut this has

:54:55.:54:57.

been for her at the World Championships.

:54:58.:55:00.

He says, be that if you can, Uchimura. We have seen the emergence

:55:01.:55:07.

of a big new start in gymnastics, wherever he finishes today, he has

:55:08.:55:13.

made his mark on this Championships and the sport. Verniaiev is up in

:55:14.:55:30.

the medals at the moment. Not enough to go ahead of Deng Shudi. From the

:55:31.:55:36.

most inexperienced gymnast in the world to the most experienced. Going

:55:37.:55:42.

for a sixth consecutive all-round title, never been done before, this

:55:43.:55:44.

is Uchimura to make history. lovely precision in the half-time.

:55:45.:56:11.

Love it. He had to struggle on and rescue it. Original, risky work.

:56:12.:56:29.

It is all over, but do it with class. He does it with superb class.

:56:30.:56:38.

Beautiful. Wonderful stuff. What a moment for that man. He is on top of

:56:39.:56:42.

the world. The respect that is going around

:56:43.:56:58.

this arena to witness this live. Something very special, we won't see

:56:59.:57:07.

the like of him in many a year, I have never seen a gymnast better and

:57:08.:57:10.

I have been in gymnastics a long, long time. Wonderful, six times

:57:11.:57:18.

world champion. There are other performances to go but the need to

:57:19.:57:23.

score 21 to get near it. Today he was pushed, he had to work better

:57:24.:57:29.

than today than he has in previous occasions.

:57:30.:57:39.

Larduet score, he has got himself a medal.

:57:40.:57:45.

Not since Richards of the 70s Cuba have impressed us and he is

:57:46.:57:54.

impressing as now. He is often the Olympics as well. Fantastic and so

:57:55.:57:56.

he should be. Cool and calm until the scoreboard

:57:57.:58:03.

reveals. Is he over 92. Icing on the cake. He

:58:04.:58:21.

has been magnificent right the way round. The whole world will be

:58:22.:58:30.

congratulating him soon. The run-up and the preparation might not have

:58:31.:58:35.

been what he wanted, but has he done it on the night?

:58:36.:58:40.

92.332. He is number one and let's count them. They are the titles, all

:58:41.:58:54.

six of them and they are all yours. Fantastic stuff, what a performer.

:58:55.:59:00.

He is absolutely unique and you can never use that word lightly. He is

:59:01.:59:03.

unique. What a privilege to be here. There

:59:04.:59:15.

he is, six times world champion and what a way to finish. Beautiful

:59:16.:59:23.

dismount. And we will continue our discussion on our programme.

:59:24.:59:44.

I hope you can join us for an afternoon with the apparatus best

:59:45.:59:53.

service -- apparatus specialists, these finals in to get more

:59:54.:59:56.

impressive. From all of us here in Glasgow, goodbye.

:59:57.:00:04.

The knives are sharpened and the heat is on. It can only mean one thing.

:00:05.:00:09.

Britain's best chefs are back in town.

:00:10.:00:13.

Matt Baker presents coverage of the World Gymnastics Championships from Glasgow. Japan's Kohei Uchimura is attempting to win an incredible sixth men's all-around title in a row, a sequence that started in London in 2009 as Britain's Daniel Keatings won silver. Fellow Brit Max Whitlock won silver behind Uchimura in China in 2014 but his form in 2015 has been hampered after developing a mild form of glandular fever.

Beth Tweddle, Mitch Fenner and Christine Still provide expert analysis.
