I can't believe it's the last day of the finals. Shall we get the classic

:00:10.:00:19.

shot before we go? Ready? Start the countdown!

:00:20.:01:08.

We are the right way up now. Hello and welcome back to coverage of the

:01:09.:01:15.

World Gymnastics Championships. From Glasgow. This has already been the

:01:16.:01:19.

most successful gymnastics competition at whirled for Great

:01:20.:01:23.

Britain to date, with five medals in all. And they are not finished yet.

:01:24.:01:29.

-- at world level. Here is what is coming up.

:01:30.:01:35.

Simone Biles goes for gold again, aiming for a total of five medals at

:01:36.:01:41.

these World Championships. She will be joined on the floor by British

:01:42.:01:46.

hopeful and Commonwealth champion Claudia Fragapane and Ellie Downie

:01:47.:01:51.

who has already impressed so far. All around champ Uchimura is back in

:01:52.:01:59.

the high bars. Who will hang on for gold? We will be reflecting on the

:02:00.:02:04.

history makers, Louis Smith and Max Whitlock, finding out from Max what

:02:05.:02:08.

it feels like to wake up as a world champion. The gymnasts for the vault

:02:09.:02:15.

are making their way into the arena. Joining me to talk us through the

:02:16.:02:20.

five finals we are going to say, three-time world champion Beth

:02:21.:02:24.

Tweddle and world all-around silver medallist Dan Keatings. Welcome to

:02:25.:02:28.

you both. It is all kicking off behind us, the prop eight from

:02:29.:02:33.

qualification last week. Every so often in a sport, you get a virtuoso

:02:34.:02:38.

who seems to change the direction of the sport and makes all the other

:02:39.:02:42.

competitors realise what is humanly possible. With the vault, that

:02:43.:02:49.

certain someone is Dragulescu. This is him at the 2004 Athens Olympics

:02:50.:02:55.

with a double front and a half turn. If you are going to have a vault to

:02:56.:03:00.

your name, you better do it properly. He absolutely nailed it.

:03:01.:03:08.

Incredibly, after retiring twice, Dragulescu is back at the World

:03:09.:03:13.

Championships, now 34 years old. This was his qualification vault. It

:03:14.:03:19.

is amazing to see him back and performing the vaults he did in 2004

:03:20.:03:24.

at such a top quality level. It is awesome to see someone that age

:03:25.:03:28.

doing gymnastics at such a high level. To be fair, it is not really

:03:29.:03:33.

an old man's event, the vault, with all of the power down the runway. It

:03:34.:03:37.

is not, but he has worked really hard to come back and he has helped

:03:38.:03:42.

the Romanian team to get up there. We are not sure if he is going to

:03:43.:03:45.

raise his game from qualification for the final, interesting to see.

:03:46.:03:51.

Third-highest qualifier, he is in with a shout. This is Kenzo Shirai,

:03:52.:03:56.

who took gold in the four final yesterday. He will be using all of

:03:57.:04:02.

that twisting ability. -- in the floor final. His first vault is a

:04:03.:04:10.

triple twist, it is one of the most perfect vaults I have ever seen so

:04:11.:04:14.

you could see nearly a perfect score. The way he can wrap in the

:04:15.:04:19.

twist and spot the landing, because that is going to be the key in this

:04:20.:04:27.

event. It is, he will transfer it from the floor to the vault, and he

:04:28.:04:30.

has the perfect landing, which is what the judges will be looking for

:04:31.:04:35.

as a last impression. He will really want a medal, he has been outside

:04:36.:04:39.

the medals last year and the year before. He knows what it feels like

:04:40.:04:43.

to have a gold medal in the gym bag, he got back on the floor. We will

:04:44.:04:49.

join our commentators Mitch Fenner and Charlotte Still, for Kenzo

:04:50.:04:55.

Shirai, who qualified in sixth, who has his sights on a medal.

:04:56.:05:03.

COMMENTATOR: We know what Shirai can do on the floor, he is marvellous in

:05:04.:05:09.

the air and he has plenty of time, the way he vaults. Superb technique.

:05:10.:05:20.

Cutting himself off from the real world, Donnell Whittenburg.

:05:21.:05:32.

Shirai, composing himself. Starts with a six value.

:05:33.:05:43.

Always lovely technique and always fabulous aerial awareness.

:05:44.:05:50.

The first man to Quad twist on the floor in competition. Here he is,

:05:51.:05:59.

Kenzo Shirai. On vault. Qualified in sixth. A measured

:06:00.:06:13.

approach. Three twists but he didn't quite make it around. He did not.

:06:14.:06:18.

I'm not even sure they would give that. It was two at best. The

:06:19.:06:26.

tolerance is a quarter of a turn, so they might give it, but they may

:06:27.:06:31.

mark it severely. That's quite a surprise, because he usually rockets

:06:32.:06:36.

around. When he lands, his shoulders were facing the wrong way, his feet

:06:37.:06:40.

are, I think they might not give it. I don't think he made the three

:06:41.:06:49.

quarters. That's half, I think. You will be able to see, because the

:06:50.:06:54.

tariff for three twists is six, and if the judges decide he has not done

:06:55.:07:00.

three twists, they will just down the tariff, so when the D score

:07:01.:07:05.

comes up, it would be lower. Very unusual to see that happen. His

:07:06.:07:08.

aerial awareness normally is super. 5.6. As predicted, they have reduced

:07:09.:07:15.

it. 14.5. Sony needs absolute precision. He

:07:16.:07:39.

has posted 5.6 for this one. Makes sure of the twists that time. Two

:07:40.:07:47.

twists from the half turn on, not so difficult, only two twists, but at

:07:48.:07:51.

least it was clean. He made good some of the damage, but he will be

:07:52.:07:57.

disappointed. I know it is a cliche, but he will be disappointed

:07:58.:08:01.

with his first vault. He has pulled it back nicely here, though. Makes

:08:02.:08:08.

the twist, clean, a tiny walk back. That time a genuine vault. He was

:08:09.:08:14.

quite lucky not to hurt himself on that landing, not this landing, the

:08:15.:08:18.

first one, because he was completely sideways. Hang on a minute, that is

:08:19.:08:25.

a half turn on, two twists... That is 5.2, not 5.6, he needs the extra

:08:26.:08:34.

half turn for 5.6. Let's see what happens. You never know. Let's keep

:08:35.:08:42.

our eyes on the difficulty score. Yes, you can see, downgraded to

:08:43.:08:50.

5.2. Disappointment for him. Trying to play safe on the second

:08:51.:08:54.

5.2. Disappointment for him. Trying no avail. That's a shame for Kenzo

:08:55.:08:57.

Shirai. The master of aerial awareness. This man has had a busy

:08:58.:09:03.

World Championships. He has competed every day of the men's finals.

:09:04.:09:11.

Donnell Whittenburg. His presence has certainly been felt here. He

:09:12.:09:19.

really can vault, a powerful man. He has had a good competition. The

:09:20.:09:29.

double with half turn. Mr Dragulescu himself is here to see it. So many

:09:30.:09:35.

have tried to get close to Dragulescu, that was a good

:09:36.:09:40.

attempt, superb vault. It certainly was. Like you say, he has competed

:09:41.:09:45.

every day. His legs are still firing. Two and a half somersaults

:09:46.:09:51.

with the half turn out, sporting the landing really well. Down the

:09:52.:09:55.

middle. Probably a deduction for a lot chest on landing. Some of the

:09:56.:10:01.

very best, you will see them stand upright as they land. But to be fair

:10:02.:10:07.

to him, he is not the lightest gymnast, but to get the block and

:10:08.:10:10.

the push to give himself the room to rotate, it is a long way around. He

:10:11.:10:16.

is a big old boy, he handles the air very well, and he was a bit flat

:10:17.:10:21.

coming off as well, so he did well to get the rotations in.

:10:22.:10:26.

14.52, the score to beat. The average from the two vaults. Going

:10:27.:10:46.

for a very difficult vault. 6.4 posted on the difficulty scoreboard.

:10:47.:10:56.

The turn on, full twist! Back out in the second, that was magnificent.

:10:57.:11:09.

That was a smasher. Terrific, full twisting double, an amazing vault.

:11:10.:11:15.

That was a smasher. Terrific, full Well, he deserves to be on the

:11:16.:11:21.

podium. Absolutely. To get in a full twist in the first location and then

:11:22.:11:24.

to twist in the first location and then

:11:25.:11:30.

chest, but that was a phenomenal vault. So little time

:11:31.:11:38.

chest, but that was a phenomenal superb. Really

:11:39.:11:40.

chest, but that was a phenomenal top, the first twist, fixes the

:11:41.:11:46.

head, twists really well and pulls the legs over.

:11:47.:11:49.

head, twists really well and pulls seeing this move on the floor. The

:11:50.:11:53.

double back with full twist, but when you come off the hands, it is

:11:54.:11:56.

two and a half somersaults when you come off the hands, it is

:11:57.:12:04.

unbelievable. He came eighth in the all-around, fifth in the ring is

:12:05.:12:07.

final, is this is time to get a medal? 15.35. Whittenburg goes into

:12:08.:12:22.

the lead with six gymnasts to go in the men's vault final. A

:12:23.:12:26.

the lead with six gymnasts to go in of apparatus, Denis Abliazin,

:12:27.:12:32.

Olympic silver medallist, two-time European champion. He has put up a

:12:33.:12:39.

6.4, matching the difficulty of Whittenburg.

:12:40.:12:44.

So sharp and powerful, that will be classed as a fault, I think he

:12:45.:12:53.

touched with his hands. The same vault. He really went up and didn't

:12:54.:12:58.

rotate quite so well, did he? Loads of height. The full twist, grabs the

:12:59.:13:08.

legs early, just haven't got enough rotation off the top. He split the

:13:09.:13:14.

twist, he did half in the first and half in the second. No, it was a

:13:15.:13:21.

full, but it didn't pay off. An incredibly difficult vault. He

:13:22.:13:27.

really rocketed in the air. Obviously you need lots of height,

:13:28.:13:31.

but you need to snap and create the rotation. The most important thing

:13:32.:13:36.

is to go around two and a half times to your feet. He blocked and set the

:13:37.:13:40.

twist a little bit quickly, didn't he? How these guys understand the

:13:41.:13:46.

platform and get the best out of it to get that propulsion... 14.3 for

:13:47.:13:57.

the first vault. The second one will be slightly easier, 6.2.

:13:58.:14:03.

You can see Dragulescu just underneath the difficulty

:14:04.:14:10.

scoreboard, he is the next gymnast up. Quite an unbelievable level of

:14:11.:14:15.

difficulty, this vaulting final. He does the round off this time and

:14:16.:14:29.

that was super work. The round off and the flip on. Half turn and two

:14:30.:14:38.

and a half twists off, you need to be so accurate. Let's see how square

:14:39.:14:43.

he was. He certainly had good body form. He did.

:14:44.:14:59.

The level of difficulty. Very clean. Very good. We saw the girls

:15:00.:15:06.

yesterday putting one-and-a-half twists and that's two-and-a-half.

:15:07.:15:10.

You really have to get some airtime in there to be able to wrap the

:15:11.:15:19.

two-and-a-half twists in. It will be interesting to see if Marian

:15:20.:15:23.

Dragulescu, the vaulter we were talking about earlier, goes for that

:15:24.:15:27.

extra half twist he did in qualification. The fans are in. 34

:15:28.:15:36.

years old, he's back. He came back, went away again and came back. He

:15:37.:15:46.

loves this sport. The current leader Donnell Whittenburg, a score of

:15:47.:15:56.

15.35. After that first vault. Hoping for a second placing. That's

:15:57.:16:03.

where he is, 14.85. A good score for that second vault. 15.4. The highest

:16:04.:16:16.

score is 15.6 so far for that second vault that he did. Four-times world

:16:17.:16:25.

champion and three times European champion. The master, Marian

:16:26.:16:32.

Dragulescu, takes to the end of the runway. Has he still got it? Let's

:16:33.:16:35.

find out. I think he has. Just a pace back.

:16:36.:16:56.

That's the Dragulescu. He invented it. Masterful he is. He needed extra

:16:57.:17:04.

height, clean twist. He invented it and he can still do it. Beautifully

:17:05.:17:12.

done. A huge vault. Look, I like the way that Dragulescu kicks it out.

:17:13.:17:17.

Some of them just roll the shoulder but he really commits. The two

:17:18.:17:22.

somersaults. As he comes in for that last half, kicks out. Just the pace.

:17:23.:17:30.

Very impressive. A great example of harnessing power. Good, strong

:17:31.:17:37.

vault. He's at the races, that's for sure. That's a six difficulty. Will

:17:38.:17:57.

he up it for the second vault? 15.3. Looking for consistency here. He

:17:58.:18:07.

needs a total score of over 15.35. To try and regain that world title.

:18:08.:18:13.

6.2 difficulty. What a story this would be.

:18:14.:18:20.

In the beginning we saw the double twist. He's nominated the

:18:21.:18:27.

two-and-a-half. Let's see the round-off, the height, easily done!

:18:28.:18:34.

Fantastic. He was saving that one up just for you, Matt. He's back and

:18:35.:18:39.

it's as if nothing has changed! Unbelievable. Stepped up the

:18:40.:18:46.

difficulty. Saw Abliazin doing a cracking investigation of the same

:18:47.:18:50.

vault and thought, that doesn't put me off, I'll do the same, maybe a

:18:51.:18:56.

little bit better. He's delighted. It would be wonderful to see him go

:18:57.:19:04.

up into the lead. Look at this. Half turn, nice and accurate. Good

:19:05.:19:09.

height. Good line, and just that pace back from the two-and-a-half

:19:10.:19:15.

twists. Lovely stuff. Let's see how square he really is here, Chris.

:19:16.:19:21.

Really good. And he had so much height it almost overrotated. It

:19:22.:19:28.

wasn't a question of squeezing that last half in. Fantastic. So

:19:29.:19:35.

Whittenburg has 15.35. Will he go ahead of him? Oh he has done! He's

:19:36.:19:47.

got 15.4! Yes! Can he stay there? Can he get a fifth world title on

:19:48.:19:55.

this piece of apparatus? 5,999 people here who hope he does. Look

:19:56.:20:06.

at that. Well, Whittenburg still in medal contention, but I do want to

:20:07.:20:11.

tell you that the highest qualifier is still yet to come. Oleg Verniaiev

:20:12.:20:23.

got a bronze at last year's European championships. A slight frame but it

:20:24.:20:27.

belies the power he can harness. Another Dragulescu! He almost stuck

:20:28.:20:42.

that. That was just a tiny adjustment. Boy oh boy what a final!

:20:43.:20:49.

They are having a Dragulescu-off! He really stuck his feet down there.

:20:50.:20:56.

Like, OK guys, you can do it, I can do one better. A Dragulescu fest

:20:57.:21:07.

even. He's really a light, slight guy, but he plonked those feet down,

:21:08.:21:13.

I'm not moving. Pick the bonus out of that. Power, chest in to get the

:21:14.:21:21.

rotation guaranteed, and I really hope he would stick that, but a tiny

:21:22.:21:26.

adjustment at the end. Superb vaulting. Huge vaulting. Through the

:21:27.:21:31.

chest as well as the heels. Just look at that. He is the roll it

:21:32.:21:39.

round category but very effective technique for him. What's he got?

:21:40.:21:56.

15.466 execution of 9.466. That's certainly the highest execution

:21:57.:22:06.

score we've seen, so he needs every tenth of execution here, because his

:22:07.:22:10.

difficulty is down just a smidgen at six. Looks very focused indeed. Half

:22:11.:22:23.

turn. And the triple twist. The Tsukahara with triple twist. That's

:22:24.:22:30.

fabulous vaulting. A big start, a giant step forward, which indicates

:22:31.:22:34.

to the judges he was a little bit low in height. But lovely vaulting

:22:35.:22:41.

just the same. Great to see such versatility from all these gymnasts.

:22:42.:22:45.

The big double somersaulting vault and then the great twisting vault.

:22:46.:22:53.

Consummate all round ability. Look at that triple. The twist, he can

:22:54.:23:02.

rotate about any axis. A virtuoso on the vault. Well, he's virtuoso

:23:03.:23:09.

anywhere. Will he stay in the 15s? He should do. Dragulescu has a total

:23:10.:23:25.

score of 15.4. He's in the medals at the moment. 15.283 his total. 15.1

:23:26.:23:33.

score of 15.4. He's in the medals at for that second vault. There's a

:23:34.:23:38.

step forward I think. So Marian Dragulescu hangs on in there at the

:23:39.:23:46.

moment. But Se Gwang Ri from People's Republic of

:23:47.:23:49.

moment. But Se Gwang Ri from highest qualifier. He's also a

:23:50.:23:58.

member of the 30s Club. Experienced and very, very powerful. Is he going

:23:59.:24:06.

to upset the party for Dragulescu? In qualifying he did two

:24:07.:24:12.

to upset the party for Dragulescu? a 6.4 difficulty. He's got the

:24:13.:24:20.

ammunition. Look at that... Oh, superb, a Dragulescu

:24:21.:24:23.

ammunition. Look at that... Oh, some vault. A tiny adjustment on

:24:24.:24:27.

landing. That's got to be the highest mark so far I think.

:24:28.:24:33.

landing. That's got to be the cracking vault. So the Dragulescus

:24:34.:24:36.

we've seen previous have all been tucked, but look at the

:24:37.:24:39.

we've seen previous have all been leg. We lost it a little bit in the

:24:40.:24:44.

end. He could no doubt feel he was just running a little bit out of

:24:45.:24:51.

air, but the first two somersaults are beautifully straight-legged.

:24:52.:24:55.

Going into the half turn he loses a little bit of leg tension, but

:24:56.:25:01.

magnificent vaulting. Such power off the top of the platform. Conversion

:25:02.:25:03.

was so powerful. 15.6. Very, very impressive. It is

:25:04.:25:21.

one thing to have one difficult vault that you can do, but to have

:25:22.:25:31.

two of the same value of 6.4... He's very special. Se Gwang Ri with vault

:25:32.:25:50.

number two. Two gymnasts after him. Already posted a massive score for

:25:51.:25:56.

the first vault. Full of focus, half bomb, full twist, back out. Oh, he

:25:57.:26:02.

held op to that, just. Two steps. Two steps might be the difference

:26:03.:26:07.

between gold and silver. He invented the vault. He has power left. A

:26:08.:26:16.

little bit overcooked. Had to scuttle sharply to bring it under

:26:17.:26:25.

control. Smacks into the value, pulls in, perhaps a little too hard.

:26:26.:26:36.

Really wonderful. He has done bags of rotation but he just wasn't

:26:37.:26:41.

confident to stamp it out. He was still waiting to see, is the floor

:26:42.:26:49.

there? How costly is this landing? 8 10ths I think. Absolutely. Between 5

:26:50.:26:59.

and 8, I think. So that's out of your execution score, so we would

:27:00.:27:03.

expect his E score to be down a little.

:27:04.:27:08.

APPLAUSE. He's gone into the lead with a score of 15.45. Marian

:27:09.:27:17.

Dragulescu drops in to second, just 0. .05 behind him. Donnell

:27:18.:27:26.

Whittenburg hangs on in there in that third spot for now. He gives

:27:27.:27:31.

you impression he's loving to be back. Can't read it from here, can

:27:32.:27:38.

we Matt? Just directing you towards a bit of social media. Igor

:27:39.:27:50.

Radivilov of Ukraine. He knows what it is like to medal at the high

:27:51.:27:54.

level. He got bronze at the Olympics. Silver last year. Three

:27:55.:28:05.

times European silver medallist. Yet another cracking vault. In the

:28:06.:28:13.

Dragulescu Club. And just a tiny adjustment again on landing. It's a

:28:14.:28:18.

super vault. Years ago we used to dream of putting a half twist in a

:28:19.:28:22.

double, but these guys are pumping them out, Chris. It is very

:28:23.:28:28.

impressive. Legs are a bit wide apart. The judges will take off a

:28:29.:28:35.

little bit for that. Landed, you can see his head and face were down a

:28:36.:28:39.

bit, so you would expect his execution score to be a teeny bit

:28:40.:28:44.

lower. I know it sounds like we are being picky but you have to find

:28:45.:28:48.

some way of choosing between them as to which is better. We had four

:28:49.:28:53.

golds yesterday on the women's uneven bars because they couldn't

:28:54.:28:57.

separate. But here there is room for judges to deliberate and separate. A

:28:58.:29:10.

little bit low. 15.2 for his first vault. That score for that third

:29:11.:29:18.

spot at the moment is 15.35. Donnell Whittenburg. That's the value of his

:29:19.:29:26.

second vault, 6. Really going to concentrate on the execution here.

:29:27.:29:34.

He needs to lose less than 0.7, 0.6 in deductions on this vault. He

:29:35.:29:42.

knows he needs to be very nearly perfect. 20 metres they have to get

:29:43.:29:50.

the power... Double pike. It was very good but it had a pace. It is

:29:51.:29:58.

just marvellous, that's the word, the level of vaulting is just

:29:59.:30:03.

marvellous. Double rotations with and without twists. Courageous and

:30:04.:30:10.

very difficult. Every one of these vaulters... A huge vault, really

:30:11.:30:15.

well landed. Has to pull hard, get the pike in, hold on to it. He was

:30:16.:30:22.

very low on landing but held the shape through the rotations. This is

:30:23.:30:25.

a good vault. Top Bang. Not a lot of rotation left

:30:26.:30:42.

there. He used up every degree. Always amazed at how they can... How

:30:43.:30:50.

strong their ankles are to walk away from landings like that. So well

:30:51.:30:51.

conditioned in the ankle. A gymnast that has been around for a

:30:52.:31:09.

long time now, hasn't he? He has been part of the Ukrainian team. A

:31:10.:31:15.

great all-rounder a few years back. Very good indeed.

:31:16.:31:21.

The current leader, Se-gwang. Marian Dragulescu, in Silver spot at the

:31:22.:31:38.

moment. Whittenburg in third. But this gymnast is the current world

:31:39.:31:39.

champion. Hansel Kim. He did qualify in fourth, but don't

:31:40.:32:00.

let that put you off. Oh, that was a wipe-out! Such a

:32:01.:32:10.

pity. His nose was first to make contact.

:32:11.:32:26.

Se-gwang's coach is confident that's enough. He is indeed. If the

:32:27.:32:33.

judges consider that the feet did not get down before the hands, it's

:32:34.:32:39.

a zero. I think they might just say feet first, but it will certainly be

:32:40.:32:45.

a hallmark off, and a lot of deductions for not completing the

:32:46.:32:55.

vault. -- a whole mark off. A lot of energy came out of the vault. It was

:32:56.:32:58.

close. 14 scored, so Hansol Kim is out of

:32:59.:33:08.

the running for a medal. And it's all or nothing when you

:33:09.:33:22.

vault at this level. It must be very difficult for him to come out and do

:33:23.:33:27.

this, although he wants to show the world what he can do, as far as a

:33:28.:33:32.

medal is concerned... Clapping all around this arena. Everybody is

:33:33.:33:39.

willing him to his feet, not to hurt himself.

:33:40.:33:45.

Another very difficult six tariff. Much better that time. Much better.

:33:46.:34:05.

Twisted his way to... Maybe a triple. The half turn on that time.

:34:06.:34:19.

The snap and three twists off. The knee went down. Five to ate. --

:34:20.:34:32.

eight. How many times do you do these with gymnasts back in the gym?

:34:33.:34:40.

You do a lot of repetition twisting off the top of the horse. And you

:34:41.:34:46.

work in the pits with crash mats on top. So you work at realistic level,

:34:47.:34:52.

but on a service that will go down as you land, if you have not made it

:34:53.:34:54.

quite the way around. Ri Se-gwang is the world champion.

:34:55.:35:02.

Marian filming himself, filming his

:35:03.:35:17.

to this level of competition. We are well championships and he has got a

:35:18.:35:22.

silver. Four times world champion, he retired, he came back, he retired

:35:23.:35:28.

again, and now here he is at 34 years old. He went around to every

:35:29.:35:34.

single delegation, every gymnast he could find, and shook their hands.

:35:35.:35:39.

Everybody said the same thing... Good to see you back. And I'm

:35:40.:35:45.

delighted to see Dunnell Whitten Berg being commended for his

:35:46.:35:51.

efforts. -- Donnell Whittenburg. He has worked so hard and got himself a

:35:52.:35:57.

bronze. Confirmation that Se-gwang is the New World vault champion.

:35:58.:36:10.

Beth, let's have a word with you about that return to form. What form

:36:11.:36:18.

it was with Marian Dragulescu. We wondered if he could still achieve

:36:19.:36:20.

at this level. I mean, it wondered if he could still achieve

:36:21.:36:25.

not a day has gone by since he was competing last time. The first vault

:36:26.:36:30.

was insane. Me and Dan thought he was going to land it, but that is

:36:31.:36:36.

down to experience, he hasn't been competing. Dan said he has not been

:36:37.:36:39.

in competition for about two months. He has been in training, and

:36:40.:36:44.

to bring out the extra half twist... You can see in his face how

:36:45.:36:49.

delighted he is. He is in good physical shape and he can now build

:36:50.:36:54.

the numbers before Rio next year. Dan, your impression of the second

:36:55.:36:59.

vault? We did not see it earlier on with the extra half twist. To be

:37:00.:37:04.

honest, it looked easier than the vault he did in qualification. A bit

:37:05.:37:09.

of adrenaline, he was pumped. The first vault was amazing, his

:37:10.:37:15.

Dragulescu. If there are many and team don't qualify in the test

:37:16.:37:20.

event, Marian Dragulescu, because he has a medal here in the individual

:37:21.:37:24.

apparatus final, he will be in Brazil. Yes, he has already secured

:37:25.:37:29.

his own spot. Any medallist from these championships, if you are not

:37:30.:37:33.

part of a team who has qualified, they have qualified themselves, so

:37:34.:37:36.

his ticket is saved but he would love his team-mates alongside him.

:37:37.:37:45.

We are moving from the vault to the beam, a piece of apparatus that has

:37:46.:37:49.

not really changed at all over the years. We might be looking at some

:37:50.:37:53.

wonderful old footage, if we can show it. Talk us through the fact

:37:54.:37:58.

that the equipment has stayed as it is, but the moves have changed

:37:59.:38:02.

somewhat. They have upgraded the difficulty. The first back

:38:03.:38:08.

somersault was done on the beam in 1972. They wanted to ban it, they

:38:09.:38:14.

said it was far too dangerous. They fought against it and the

:38:15.:38:18.

somersaults the gymnasts are now doing, the likes of Simone Biles...

:38:19.:38:24.

At the beginning of her routine, she does a somersault with a half turn

:38:25.:38:28.

on the beam, and a spin in the clutch position. Lots of unique

:38:29.:38:34.

skills now going on, on the beam. -- the Crouch position. The dismount

:38:35.:38:40.

into the full twisting double back. Very few gymnasts do that. When you

:38:41.:38:47.

look at the difference between Nadia Comaneci and Steingruber, this

:38:48.:38:53.

wonderful dismount. The style of the routines we are going to be seeing

:38:54.:38:57.

today, what do the judges need to see? What can the viewers look out

:38:58.:39:03.

for? The gymnasts need a mixture, a forwards element, a front

:39:04.:39:07.

somersault, and a backwards element. And they need a big dismount. The

:39:08.:39:13.

sideways elements are very difficult to land because you only have ten

:39:14.:39:15.

centimetres to place your feet on to. They need a mixture of spins and

:39:16.:39:21.

leaps. The beam is usually about who can stay on in the final. Let's talk

:39:22.:39:29.

through some of the contenders. Komova has to be one of the

:39:30.:39:34.

favourites. Along with Simone Biles, who will be wanting to upgrade the

:39:35.:39:42.

bronze she picked up in the vault. Komova picked up one of the four

:39:43.:39:47.

gold medals on the bars yesterday, and Ellie Downie is so dynamic. We

:39:48.:39:51.

usually find anything does happen because so many mistakes can happen.

:39:52.:39:57.

This is the thing. In the all-around competition, the beam was the

:39:58.:40:03.

problem. Simone Biles just managed to Klingon. It proved to be a vital

:40:04.:40:07.

piece for her in the all-around. -- to cling on. It did. She knew that

:40:08.:40:15.

she was going off and she managed to save it. She will want a flawless

:40:16.:40:20.

routine today. Do you think she will go through and get gold? I think she

:40:21.:40:26.

can. The difficulty is very high on her routine, and the dismount is

:40:27.:40:32.

spot on. And she has the floor final to come later on. The last gymnast

:40:33.:40:40.

in the beam, Tutkhalian, is the fifth highest qualifier. She has

:40:41.:40:45.

really impressed, just 16 years old. A very young gymnast but she has had

:40:46.:40:49.

a lot of experience. She went to the youth Olympics last year and she has

:40:50.:40:53.

made quite a few finals there, great for her to get that exposure and

:40:54.:40:57.

that experience a head of Rio next year. We will let you enjoy this

:40:58.:41:02.

beam final and we will talk to you in a little while.

:41:03.:41:18.

A good position in seventh for Simone Biles. It is. She is not so

:41:19.:41:27.

elegant. Wevers from the Netherlands will show the exact opposite type of

:41:28.:41:34.

work. Both Dutch girls are very elegant. We will have to see what

:41:35.:41:37.

the judges favoured today. A great achievement for the Netherlands,

:41:38.:41:44.

Mitch, to have two gymnasts in this competition. The first is

:41:45.:41:49.

Thorsdottir, the eighth highest qualifier. The women'sworld beam

:41:50.:41:58.

final. The gymnasts have to use a coded mount, but that does not have

:41:59.:42:04.

to be included in the difficulty. Nicely done. Very confident on the

:42:05.:42:11.

leap into the free cartwheel and the Olga Korbut flip. A tiny bit

:42:12.:42:12.

off-line. Though, I was about to say very

:42:13.:42:23.

nicely done... The half turn onto the hands. First performed by

:42:24.:42:35.

Onodi, the great Hungarian gymnast. Very difficult to correct if your

:42:36.:42:37.

body weight is not over the beam. Those are the leaps that get you a

:42:38.:42:48.

lot of marks. The head has to go right back and you have to lose

:42:49.:42:51.

sight of the beam. If the judges think that you have and you have

:42:52.:42:55.

touched your head, they will give you lots of bonus marks. Two spins,

:42:56.:42:59.

linked together. And a third spin linked to a leap.

:43:00.:43:09.

These combinations will add up to increase the score.

:43:10.:43:13.

One error, the rest very clean and elegant. Two and a half twists but a

:43:14.:43:32.

couple of paces back. She will be a little bit disappointed, but she is

:43:33.:43:35.

not really a gymnast with huge experience of finals. The work on

:43:36.:43:41.

choreography and grace and style is paying off. Patrick, responsible for

:43:42.:43:48.

that area of work in the Netherlands, he has done a great

:43:49.:43:52.

job. Her lines were lovely. Beautiful lines, beautiful

:43:53.:43:57.

splitMac. That is her acrobatic series, the free cartwheel into the

:43:58.:44:03.

Olga Korbut flip, Lou was the first person to perform back. The half

:44:04.:44:11.

turn into the handstand. -- who was. The second leg was completely out of

:44:12.:44:19.

line. Gymnasts have to finish with a D dismount, two and a half twists is

:44:20.:44:26.

a D. So she will have got the full composition marks for finishing with

:44:27.:44:33.

a D. But you can see she was underrotating and had to take a

:44:34.:44:36.

couple of paces back, which will be costly for her. If you can limit it

:44:37.:44:44.

to one pace, you can limit the deduction to 0.3. As soon as you

:44:45.:44:46.

take the second, it is at least 0.5. You can always spot the Dutch

:44:47.:45:10.

supporters in the crowd. Even in the air she manages that grace. She

:45:11.:45:15.

does. You can see on the free walk she almost manages to see the foot

:45:16.:45:21.

land while the head is still back. Lovely touches.

:45:22.:45:34.

Well, she's 17 years old. Still plenty of time left. 12.733 for

:45:35.:45:44.

Thorsdottir. The fans from the Netherlands have a lot to look

:45:45.:45:48.

forward to, as here is her compatriot. The second highest

:45:49.:45:54.

qualifier, Sanne Wevers, the Dutch champion. Takes to the beam.

:45:55.:46:07.

Very nice, plight, easy mount, gets the routine under way. Double spin

:46:08.:46:18.

with the leg held up. Very, very difficult and very well rewarded.

:46:19.:46:27.

Free cartwheel, that's her only acrobatic series, and she performed

:46:28.:46:34.

it well. The free walkover. She held on to that. Had to take a step

:46:35.:46:41.

backwards. Sideways dance which has to be included these days. Just the

:46:42.:46:49.

single spin. Oh, and she missed the link two the backspin there. Just

:46:50.:46:53.

the single spin. Oh, and she missed the link two the backspin there. --

:46:54.:46:56.

missed the link two the backspin there. Straight into the split leap.

:46:57.:47:03.

Again those connections get the bonus points. Very nice. Changed leg

:47:04.:47:10.

leap into full turning flip. It is well balanced, this routine. Spins,

:47:11.:47:14.

leaps, acrobatics. The dismount, the straight Gaynor

:47:15.:47:32.

has to be dead in line with the beam and have the body held straight all

:47:33.:47:34.

the way around. She got through it. and have the body held straight all

:47:35.:47:38.

She may and have the body held straight all

:47:39.:47:42.

of difficulty in order to stay on, which really is the key.

:47:43.:47:46.

of difficulty in order to stay on, there, her father, and a proud dad

:47:47.:47:51.

he is too. She's always been great on the beam and she transfers that

:47:52.:47:56.

elegance from floor to beam beautifully. And that's the very,

:47:57.:48:00.

elegance from floor to beam very difficult spin. Leg held up at

:48:01.:48:04.

horizontal, round twice. Not many gymnasts in the world can do that on

:48:05.:48:09.

the beam. Most struggle with it on the floor. But these are the two

:48:10.:48:16.

free cart wheels. The judging system requires you if you want your full

:48:17.:48:21.

difficulty to link to acrobatic elements.

:48:22.:48:23.

difficulty to link to acrobatic needs to be directly in line with

:48:24.:48:31.

the beam, if it is off to one side it gets downgraded. Has to hold the

:48:32.:48:34.

body shape. Very nicely done. it gets downgraded. Has to hold the

:48:35.:48:40.

had a 5.9 difficulty to start in qualification. You said she missed

:48:41.:48:48.

one connection, so can we expect it to be down a bit from 5.9? Yes, I

:48:49.:48:56.

don't see her routine every day. A lot of gymnasts record everything

:48:57.:49:03.

they do. Will she be writing in the connection, or not? So the two Dutch

:49:04.:49:14.

gymnasts have finished. Just two gymnasts per country allowed in an

:49:15.:49:20.

individual apparatus final. It's a talking point that's always

:49:21.:49:27.

interesting, we all wonder if more should be allowed in. 14.233 is now

:49:28.:49:33.

the score to beat. Difficulty just down a little to 5.6, so most of the

:49:34.:49:41.

connections she got. The next gymnast got gold at the Youth

:49:42.:49:48.

Olympics last year. She did have a bit of an ordeal in the all-around

:49:49.:49:54.

competition on this piece. But she's certainly capable of mid to high

:49:55.:50:07.

14s. This is Yan Wang for China. And we are likely to see very big

:50:08.:50:17.

acrobatic skills here. Keep your eyes open for this first one. Front

:50:18.:50:22.

somersault with half turn... Oh, and we've seen her do that quite

:50:23.:50:27.

successfully, but she headtated. Once your feet land you have to lift

:50:28.:50:32.

the chest with conviction. Oh, and she's a little bit rattled now. That

:50:33.:50:39.

changed leg to ring, settles for the sheep jump. Now she has another big

:50:40.:50:47.

acrobatic skill here. And pride will mean she wants to hold on to it. And

:50:48.:50:56.

she does! The round-off straight-backed somersault. One of

:50:57.:51:01.

the most difficult forward elements and backwards and here's another

:51:02.:51:10.

front somersault. Sky high. Free walkover, immediate jump. He's

:51:11.:51:15.

getting more rhythm now. She was very tentative to start with. The

:51:16.:51:31.

two jumps successfully joined. Just the big dismount left. Here we go...

:51:32.:51:38.

Three beautiful twists, easily round. What a shame she failed on

:51:39.:51:46.

that first element. The thing was she went for it, she didn't hold

:51:47.:51:54.

back, because she knew if she could nail this she would be in with a

:51:55.:51:58.

shout for a medal. It is always going be with a piece like this,

:51:59.:52:01.

surely they are right on the edge of what is humanly possible now

:52:02.:52:04.

Christine? They are, and you have to do huge repetitions to be confident

:52:05.:52:09.

enough to handle the pressure once you come out here. And also if for a

:52:10.:52:13.

little gymnast like this, she's 15 years of age, she'll have had a

:52:14.:52:17.

little look and thought, I could do this. And that's always the danger,

:52:18.:52:21.

to think ahead whether you could achieve or not. She did very well

:52:22.:52:26.

with that, because the foot was only half on wasn't it. But she is a very

:52:27.:52:32.

dynamic little gymnast. We've seen here in the vault final as well. I'm

:52:33.:52:37.

sure she'll learn from this experience and we'll see her firing

:52:38.:52:46.

on all cylinders in Rio. She could well have a very successful Olympic

:52:47.:52:52.

debut. Sanne Wevers the current leader. 14.233. Con soldiering

:52:53.:53:09.

Thorsdottir. Con soldiering Thorsdottir. -- consoling

:53:10.:53:21.

Thorsdottir. We understand Wevers's coach has put in an inquiry on to

:53:22.:53:25.

her score. You can only put an inquiry in on the difficulty score,

:53:26.:53:32.

so here it is. This could be to do with this connection. She was

:53:33.:53:37.

looking at her book. She couldn't quite understand why the scores

:53:38.:53:42.

didn't match. She obviously put down all that she felt she had achieved

:53:43.:53:47.

and was working out to see what start score she expected. So in this

:53:48.:53:52.

case they will literally look back on the video? That's right. They

:53:53.:53:57.

will look back on the video and if they think they have been too

:53:58.:54:01.

generous they'll take it down. We've heard of that before. And how long

:54:02.:54:06.

do they get to put in that inquiry is this they can't wait until the

:54:07.:54:10.

end of the final and go, hang on a minute... No, before the score for

:54:11.:54:16.

the next gymnast in, so they have to put it in quickly before the finish.

:54:17.:54:21.

Before the finish of the next gymnast. So there you can see her

:54:22.:54:27.

going through all of her moves. You can see they are all letters, moves

:54:28.:54:32.

that are graded in a bunch from A to G? An A is worth 0.1, a B 0.2 and so

:54:33.:54:40.

on. If you link two Ds that will give you a bonus. They have accepted

:54:41.:54:48.

the inquiry. . The D score has changed. And it is now 14.333. An

:54:49.:55:01.

extra tenth given. From a 5.6 to 5.7 on the D score. A vital 10th no

:55:02.:55:14.

doubt. Yan scores 13.633. The difficulty score there, 6.4,

:55:15.:55:18.

considerably higher. Viktoriia Komova from Russia the next gymnast

:55:19.:55:23.

up. Gold yesterday on bars. One of the four. Incredible that, wasn't

:55:24.:55:33.

it, half of the final got golds. They are waiting for the judges to

:55:34.:55:37.

settle themselves after that inquiry. She was 8th in the Olympics

:55:38.:55:48.

in London. 8th in the World Championships back in 2011. But

:55:49.:55:55.

looking at these scores, she's capable of 14.533. The score to beat

:55:56.:56:02.

at the moment, Sanne Wevers, with 14.333, that new, corrected score

:56:03.:56:10.

after that inquiry. They've not got a green light yet. It is 30 seconds

:56:11.:56:17.

after that they have. She has such grace and style. She was beautiful

:56:18.:56:23.

on bars yesterday. She's one of the celebrated gymnasts around the

:56:24.:56:26.

world, part of the Russian team, in the Olympics 2012 she took the

:56:27.:56:30.

silver medal all-around. Beautiful technician. A little bit like a

:56:31.:56:38.

ballet dancer. But she lost that connection already. If you go three

:56:39.:56:45.

walkover, that's how you build that difficulty. A nice back flip and lay

:56:46.:56:51.

out somersault. You can see she's stylish and elegant. This is a big

:56:52.:56:55.

skill for her. She needs to be determined to hold it. Oh, and she

:56:56.:57:01.

did. She didn't give in. That was good to see. Lovely splits on the

:57:02.:57:15.

leap. Beautiful catch spin, has to catch hold of the leg and pull it to

:57:16.:57:21.

splits. Strong front somersault. She's fighting hard but she's not

:57:22.:57:27.

quite going for her landing shapes. That was slightly better. Good side

:57:28.:57:37.

somersault. Smooth and rhythmical. Got the difficult dismount to do.

:57:38.:57:44.

She's grown really quite a lot, quite a tall gymnast now. Has to

:57:45.:57:47.

squeeze the double back in and she did. It was a bit of a fight but it

:57:48.:57:54.

was great to see. Fighting for another medal here at these World

:57:55.:58:00.

Championships. Second, the Russians still to go in this final. Beautiful

:58:01.:58:15.

lines. Absolutely taken to the max mum there. Bang centre on that

:58:16.:58:27.

connection. That's so impressive, the standing Arabian. Struggled a

:58:28.:58:31.

little bit but pulled it under control. The hips back in line. She

:58:32.:58:45.

really showed all her natural ability to balance and

:58:46.:58:48.

determination. We've seen her quite often just plonk off when it hasn't

:58:49.:58:53.

gone right, so it's really good to see. Very focused and very elegant.

:58:54.:58:59.

It is just lovely to watch. She needed this and she delivered.

:59:00.:59:07.

Wrapped it up nicely. 14.333 is the target. There were a lot of wobbles

:59:08.:59:20.

and big step-back there, but it is really good to see Komova back and

:59:21.:59:26.

fighting for medals. I'm sure by the time Rio comes round she'll be back

:59:27.:59:30.

to the strength of performance we saw in London. 13.933. The coach

:59:31.:59:56.

doesn't look happy. This is Pauline Schaeffer for Germany. 18 years old.

:59:57.:00:05.

Quite an unusual mount, straddling back to the box splits position. A

:00:06.:00:11.

very clean gymnast. She did

:00:12.:00:26.

positions. Backflip layout, oh... I was about you can see the arms

:00:27.:00:29.

straight into the landing position, but she just had a little bit too

:00:30.:00:34.

much speed there. Good free walk over.

:00:35.:00:39.

I think the judges will consider those two linked and give her the

:00:40.:00:42.

bonus. Unusual little bit of dance. A very strong bubbles spend. --

:00:43.:00:58.

double spin. The gymnasts have to include at least three spins or

:00:59.:01:05.

leaps, it cannot all be acrobatic. The double spins is worth a lot of

:01:06.:01:07.

marks. A big circle of the arms but she

:01:08.:01:13.

held it under control. There we see the straight gainer, a

:01:14.:01:32.

favoured dismount. Not many landing penalties from it. It is really good

:01:33.:01:41.

fun, that dismount, isn't it? It's much harder than it looks, you have

:01:42.:01:46.

to push the hips forward, because most back somersaults travel

:01:47.:01:49.

backwards and if you did that, you would land back on the beam. It

:01:50.:01:55.

seems to be the story of this final, just fight to stay on. What a start

:01:56.:01:57.

that is. Very well disciplined in her

:01:58.:02:12.

approach. Backflip layout. We could see she was well in line there, if

:02:13.:02:16.

she had just employed a bit of body tension, she would not have had the

:02:17.:02:21.

wobble. Easier said than done when you are out on that stage. The free

:02:22.:02:29.

walk over, and the double spin is excellent. You can see how the

:02:30.:02:36.

gymnast loses sight... Easy to be disoriented.

:02:37.:02:42.

On the dismount, pushes the hips forward.

:02:43.:02:49.

She will have Komova's score of 13.933 in her sights.

:02:50.:03:13.

Three gymnasts to go, Ellie Black, Simone Biles and Tutkhalian as well.

:03:14.:03:24.

Interesting to see how important that Wevers enquiry will be as we

:03:25.:03:30.

come to the end of this competition, because we expect Ellie Black and

:03:31.:03:33.

Simone Biles to go up there. And Tutkhalian could knock Wevers out of

:03:34.:03:42.

the medals. The last three gymnasts have a lot of difficulty. She will

:03:43.:03:50.

be looking at that 13.933... Taking their time, again to do with the

:03:51.:03:54.

tolerance and the difference between different judges from different

:03:55.:03:59.

countries. Yes, the judges doing the difficulty score have to absolutely

:04:00.:04:04.

agree. Then the judges doing the execution... Not a lot of difference

:04:05.:04:08.

are allowed. They have to come up with very nearly the same score. And

:04:09.:04:11.

the same score as the jury as well. It is all in an effort to keep

:04:12.:04:27.

consistency. And in a final that is as tentative as beam is... For the

:04:28.:04:33.

gymnasts coming up, you have to try and time your warm-up to absolute

:04:34.:04:37.

perfection. It's quite unfortunate that the gymnast up next when this

:04:38.:04:42.

sort of thing happens. But it's something from a young age they get

:04:43.:04:47.

fairly used to. When you compete, you have to be ready for all

:04:48.:04:51.

eventualities, really and truthfully, at gymnastic

:04:52.:04:51.

competitions. Ellie Black wowed us at the

:04:52.:05:03.

Commonwealth Games on beam. She has one of the highest difficulty value

:05:04.:05:04.

routines. I wonder what they will be

:05:05.:05:21.

deliberating? Will it be to do with the huge wobble and whether the

:05:22.:05:28.

difficulty of the move... ? They wouldn't lose the difficulty of the

:05:29.:05:33.

move, it is more likely to be on the leaps to see whether the head went

:05:34.:05:39.

right back. The truth to jump, if your head goes right back and you do

:05:40.:05:45.

it properly, they will credit it with a D. -- the two footed jump. If

:05:46.:05:51.

you don't get the full extension, you can get nothing for it, which

:05:52.:05:57.

can change the start value by 0.4. And all eventualities in between.

:05:58.:06:01.

Sometimes it depends a little bit on where the judges are sitting and the

:06:02.:06:09.

angle they see the moves from. The judge they were showing is the judge

:06:10.:06:13.

from Ireland. Of course, you are only allowed to judge in this final

:06:14.:06:17.

if you haven't got a gymnast in it, so there will not be a German judge

:06:18.:06:20.

or a Dutch judge on the floor. She has gone into second at the

:06:21.:06:31.

moment. The beam final can now continue. It

:06:32.:06:46.

will be the gymnast use for warming up a moment ago, Canada's Ellie

:06:47.:06:49.

Black. 20 years old. Come on world

:06:50.:07:02.

champion. Canadian champion. And she can't half packed in the difficulty.

:07:03.:07:08.

She did a 6.4 difficulty in qualification, the highest of all

:07:09.:07:14.

the gymnasts in this final. Starts lowdown to the beam. All gymnasts

:07:15.:07:19.

are required to show elements low as well as high. Double spin negotiated

:07:20.:07:25.

well. Always looks a little tentative on the first element.

:07:26.:07:32.

Super high pike front somersault. Backflip, straight somersault,

:07:33.:07:45.

landing on two feet. A little wobble but she managed to control the

:07:46.:07:46.

middle of her body. This, the super difficult

:07:47.:07:57.

combination. Make or break of this routine. Backflip and somersault

:07:58.:08:04.

with full twist! She's so nearly made it! She would be so

:08:05.:08:08.

disappointed with herself. Two difficult leaps, the changed

:08:09.:08:18.

leg, and the changed leg half. Plants the feet securely on the end

:08:19.:08:46.

and on the landing. Two and a half twists, she will be so disappointed

:08:47.:08:51.

with herself. You spend hours in the gym to push the difficulty and to

:08:52.:08:55.

win medals on this stage, but at the end of the day, that is what can do

:08:56.:09:00.

you in. The same equation you have said so many times, Matt, difficulty

:09:01.:09:09.

versus accuracy. Versus elegance. The gymnasts fight so hard for this

:09:10.:09:14.

opportunity, hundreds of gymnasts here at this Championships, only

:09:15.:09:18.

eight make the final. Such an achievement to make the final, and

:09:19.:09:22.

you so want to give your best when you are there.

:09:23.:09:34.

The full twist there. She really wasn't very far off. She seemed to

:09:35.:09:41.

be square, we saw the left shoulder popped up a bit which may have taken

:09:42.:09:46.

her off, but she seemed to be accurate there. Very often it seems

:09:47.:09:51.

to be, as much as anything, your expectation as to whether you put

:09:52.:09:54.

your feet down and stand up and correct it, whereas she just paused,

:09:55.:09:56.

didn't she? down... Have I made it? No, I

:09:57.:10:05.

haven't. She was square and then you saw the shoulder popped up. Such a

:10:06.:10:12.

shame. Cracking gymnast. Very good gymnast, had a great all-around

:10:13.:10:13.

competition. Legs just a little bit loose in the

:10:14.:10:26.

two and a half twist, the judges will have a few tenths off for that.

:10:27.:10:37.

She will lock that one away to experience.

:10:38.:10:48.

Wevers is still in the lead and is guaranteed a medal. Two gymnasts

:10:49.:11:01.

left to go. See you in Rio. Great for Dutch gymnastics.

:11:02.:11:06.

The highest qualifier, can she get herself another gold medal here?

:11:07.:11:16.

Goal with the team, gold in the all-around.

:11:17.:11:22.

And we saw a very uncharacteristic mistake in the individual final. At

:11:23.:11:30.

that is such a fantastic spin. And it counts as a full spin. The fact

:11:31.:11:34.

she did two and a half did not matter.

:11:35.:11:39.

Front somersault with half turn, she just makes it look as easy as a

:11:40.:11:46.

The acrobatic series, layout, second the

:11:47.:11:55.

The acrobatic series, layout, second layout, shoulders up, not a waver.

:11:56.:12:05.

Strong in the front somersault, immediately into the jump.

:12:06.:12:14.

You can see how, by moving swiftly, she exudes confidence. Lovely series

:12:15.:12:20.

of three elements there. Nothing tentative about this

:12:21.:12:31.

routine. There might have been a wobble but she didn't let it be

:12:32.:12:33.

That anything more than a little

:12:34.:12:43.

That routine, the full twisting double

:12:44.:12:47.

That back at the end. Really a class

:12:48.:12:47.

apart. It was as solid as a rock. back at the end. Really a class

:12:48.:12:53.

She has the same difficulty value as the last gymnast going in

:12:54.:12:57.

She has the same difficulty value as final, so it's going to be

:12:58.:12:59.

She has the same difficulty value as to execution. If she can get it, it

:13:00.:13:04.

will be her ninth world title. Even when she made that tiny mistake, she

:13:05.:13:09.

whipped her leg back into the right position. Failing is not on her

:13:10.:13:12.

agenda. So impressive. The centre of her body is so strong,

:13:13.:13:27.

her core is so strong. That, off a little step jump... You have seen

:13:28.:13:30.

other gymnasts do that skill but they have run the length of the beam

:13:31.:13:32.

to get the power for it. The arms lifted immediately to the

:13:33.:13:45.

correct position. Beam is about discipline, and even with that

:13:46.:13:48.

wobble, she kept the arms fixed and knew where she wanted to be.

:13:49.:13:55.

If you watch her do the beam routine in training, every time, the arms

:13:56.:14:01.

are in the same place, there is any improvisation. Consummate.

:14:02.:14:13.

Absolutely. The beam is not sprung. She is jumping off a block of wood

:14:14.:14:18.

there. We were saying earlier on, you think of the greats, Nadia

:14:19.:14:22.

Comaneci... Her name has to be up there now as one of the finest. I

:14:23.:14:28.

would consider her very similar to Nadia Comaneci, actually. Yes. The

:14:29.:14:37.

athleticism. At times, she can look graceful as well. A strange mix, but

:14:38.:14:41.

the result is just mesmerising. With her coach, Amy, who has coached her

:14:42.:14:50.

since she was very little. And the team USA leader for the last 15

:14:51.:15:01.

years. Wevers will be delighted. So will everyone in the Netherlands.

:15:02.:15:12.

The school to beat is 14.333. She knows it is good. But how good? I

:15:13.:15:20.

think we might crack into the 15s with this score. Do you? I think so.

:15:21.:15:28.

I think she will be disappointed if not. She had a difficulty score of

:15:29.:15:34.

6.3 in qualification, so that is a maximum 16.3. And the Golden score

:15:35.:15:47.

at the moment is 15.358! She has upped her difficulty from

:15:48.:15:51.

qualification by 0.1, which is going to make it very, very difficult for

:15:52.:15:53.

the last gymnast in this final. The arena calms as Seda Tutkhalian

:15:54.:16:07.

of Russia takes to the beam, just 16 years old. Can she remain composed

:16:08.:16:15.

and get herself a medal in this world final? And the answer is no. I

:16:16.:16:20.

would say those first three gymnasts will remain now. She's got a lot of

:16:21.:16:32.

difficulty still to perform. Change leg, half turn. And this very

:16:33.:16:42.

difficult, full twist... Oh, and the hard full twist, she does absolutely

:16:43.:16:50.

wonderfully. It's a little bit like the nerves have gone now. She's got

:16:51.:16:55.

nothing to worry about, just perform, with her usual technique.

:16:56.:17:00.

Lovely height on the change leg leap. More interesting dance. She's

:17:01.:17:18.

strong and supple, a powerful gymnast. She had a little up and

:17:19.:17:23.

down championships but a first year senior and a gymnast I'm sure by the

:17:24.:17:28.

time we get to Rio will be wowing us. The big dismount, double pike.

:17:29.:17:37.

Apart from that obvious error, she didn't let it completely throw her.

:17:38.:17:42.

She kept her focus and produced a solid challenge, but it is surely

:17:43.:17:46.

not going to get her into the medals? That could squeeze into the

:17:47.:17:53.

third spot. That would be marvellous, because she deserves is

:17:54.:17:57.

it, it was a wonderful routine. We'll see. Maybe that's ambitious.

:17:58.:18:02.

But her difficult skills she performed well. It was this very

:18:03.:18:07.

first straight-backed somersault, it is right at the beginning of the

:18:08.:18:12.

routine and she didn't do it with very much conviction, did she,

:18:13.:18:17.

Mitch? No, it was almost as if she gave up on it. Such power

:18:18.:18:25.

afterwards. Such focus to get on and do this with such skill after the

:18:26.:18:34.

disappointment. She dismounted very confidently. Let's see. Had a bit of

:18:35.:18:44.

a mixed championship, the Russian team. Team. I'm sure level be lots

:18:45.:18:53.

of work to make sure they go to Rio really solid. There's been lots of

:18:54.:18:58.

promise shown but uncharacteristic mistakes as well. Look at the effort

:18:59.:19:04.

there. Squeezing round the double pike. She deserves a medal from the

:19:05.:19:13.

way she fought back from that early error. She had a 6.3 difficulty

:19:14.:19:26.

tariff in qualification. If she's up with that... You never know. They'll

:19:27.:19:44.

be wondering now, well, they are celebrating already. Tutkhalian

:19:45.:19:50.

didn't Lieke there was much chance of it being different. Good to see

:19:51.:19:56.

three gymnasts who stayed on the beam and fought well. Unusual not to

:19:57.:20:01.

see a Chinese, a Romanian or a Russian on that podium. Absolutely,

:20:02.:20:08.

China have been very successful on the beam. You can see how tall

:20:09.:20:17.

Komova is now. In 2012 she was quite a little gymnast. I think she's had

:20:18.:20:23.

to work very hard to get the work back. 13.5 and 6th place. The judges

:20:24.:20:33.

are true to their conviction of being quite severe.

:20:34.:21:00.

We are trying to persuade 10,000 people from across the UK to sign up

:21:01.:21:14.

and become volunteers at sports clubs around the country. Between

:21:15.:21:18.

now and BBC Sports Personality of the Year on 20th December. Sign up

:21:19.:21:23.

and become a volunteer. If you put something in, you get something out.

:21:24.:21:28.

Everyone here is a volunteer, including Emma. She is a young

:21:29.:21:34.

volunteer. It's great, it is called Big Help Out. Doesn't matter what

:21:35.:21:39.

your skills are. Making tea, sandwiches, helping out a,

:21:40.:21:41.

sandwiches, helping out with painting, washing kit - just get

:21:42.:21:44.

involved. There's something for everyone. So sign up and join in at

:21:45.:21:51.

the BBC Get Inspired website. Be a part of it. You and you and you, I'm

:21:52.:21:58.

pointing at different people all across the country. There's yet

:21:59.:22:04.

another first for Great Britain. across the country. There's yet

:22:05.:22:09.

Nile Wilson has made the across the country. There's yet

:22:10.:22:11.

bar final for the first time at the across the country. There's yet

:22:12.:22:16.

Claudia Fragapane and Ellie Downie have

:22:17.:22:20.

Claudia Fragapane and Ellie Downie And we'll wrap up proceedings with a

:22:21.:22:23.

Blue Riband event, so stand by for high bar. Yesterday as Max Whitlock

:22:24.:22:32.

and Louis Smith came out into this arena the stage was set for a first

:22:33.:22:36.

for Great Britain. Let's remind you what happened in the world final of

:22:37.:22:46.

the pommel horse. The stage is set. Mere is the current European

:22:47.:22:51.

champion. Double Olympic medallist, he looks calm, he looks ready. A

:22:52.:23:01.

great start. Now come on! What a performance for Great Britain's

:23:02.:23:07.

Louis Smith! A great routine. He is in the running for sure. Sure. Max

:23:08.:23:14.

Whitlock, this world pommel final. He skipped through that. This is

:23:15.:23:19.

good work. Keep stretching, young man. What a super, super challenge.

:23:20.:23:26.

That's phenomenal. It really is a final of the Britons here. Who is it

:23:27.:23:31.

going to be? It's going to be very, very close. Max Whitlock is the

:23:32.:23:38.

pommel horse Worrall champion. He beats Louis Smith into silver. What

:23:39.:23:42.

a story for this young man. 7.5 billion people on the planet and

:23:43.:24:08.

I'm winner on the pommel horse. It's been historic. Couldn't have asked

:24:09.:24:14.

for a better World Championship. The medals are here and so are the boys.

:24:15.:24:20.

Let's welcome Max Whitlock, world champion, and Louis Smith,

:24:21.:24:23.

wonderful, wonderful display. You said you were speechless there, Max.

:24:24.:24:28.

Has it sunk in yet? Mow did it feel this morning when you woke up?

:24:29.:24:31.

Has it sunk in yet? Mow did it feel feel tired this morning, to be

:24:32.:24:35.

honest. It's been a long week, but it still feels crazy. Hasn't sunk in

:24:36.:24:39.

at all. The whole week has been crazy for all of us at Team GB.

:24:40.:24:45.

You've done 20 routines and then you win the world title on your 20th.

:24:46.:24:51.

How has that manifested itself within you as you went through the

:24:52.:24:54.

competition. Even emotionally to get to Rio, there's so much happening

:24:55.:24:59.

here. I've said it a few times, you have to take the pressure off

:25:00.:25:01.

yourself as much as possible. You have to go in, know what you've done

:25:02.:25:06.

in training and know that's enough and do your job. We all had to go

:25:07.:25:11.

for it. Hopefully perform clean routines. Even if you look at the

:25:12.:25:16.

team final, the everyone made a clean routine, we couldn't have

:25:17.:25:20.

asked for more. Louis Smith, you were up first in that fifth spot.

:25:21.:25:25.

Let's look through this routine. It was going incredibly well. Talk us

:25:26.:25:33.

through. Right now I'm thinking, I need to overcome the noise of the

:25:34.:25:38.

crowd and just focus. All the hard work we've done in the gym, it all

:25:39.:25:43.

comes down to this moment. Did you know how difficult you were going to

:25:44.:25:47.

go? Yes, this is all progression for Rio. I wanted to prove to selectors,

:25:48.:25:53.

the world, the GB guys I've got what it takes in the bag to challenge for

:25:54.:26:02.

a Roy io spot. For a Rio spot. This is the bit that went a bit funky in

:26:03.:26:08.

the team final... The power with the hips to generate the speed to keep

:26:09.:26:13.

it going. I thought, stay focused and it is pretty much plain sailing,

:26:14.:26:17.

but don't mess up the dismount. You were thinking that from this point

:26:18.:26:22.

onstbhards Yes. And the power you generated on the dismount. A little

:26:23.:26:28.

flourish at the end. And that's just, I've done my job. You did, and

:26:29.:26:34.

to score over 16 is a huge achievement. Max, where were you

:26:35.:26:40.

when that was happening? I was still warming up. For me, when go out and

:26:41.:26:45.

compete I don't like to see many scores around me, as I don't think

:26:46.:26:50.

that can help an athlete to compete straight after. Me and Scott walked

:26:51.:26:55.

through the tunnel, going to the pommel horse. Scott said, what do

:26:56.:27:01.

you want to do then? I didn't know what Louis Smith's score was. We

:27:02.:27:05.

decided the difficulty and went for it. And you upped it by 1 10th. Yes.

:27:06.:27:12.

We are going to play your routine now. Talk us through this. You

:27:13.:27:17.

looked calm going into it. Yes, to be honest I felt a bit more calmer

:27:18.:27:22.

after coming off of the floor. For me the floor final was my first time

:27:23.:27:26.

being in the floor final of the World Championships, so coming into

:27:27.:27:31.

pommel I had already bagged a medal. Pause it when you see that extra

:27:32.:27:37.

tenth It was at the beginning, the one-handle work. I under it by doing

:27:38.:27:42.

an extra Russian in the one handle. So when you've got that extra

:27:43.:27:45.

difficulty out of the way, were you starting to get more excited, or

:27:46.:27:50.

more calm? More tense probably. It was like once you've done all the

:27:51.:27:55.

hard bit, with you've got to finish the routine off. It is very

:27:56.:28:00.

difficult, but that feeling there was unbelievable. And did you know,

:28:01.:28:08.

did you know, Louis. What was happening between you there

:28:09.:28:11.

psychologically as you were waiting for the score? I knew Max had done a

:28:12.:28:17.

great routine. I thought, if it is no a draw he'll beat me by just a

:28:18.:28:21.

little bit. It was well deserved, so I was praying for a draw. Don't get

:28:22.:28:27.

me wrong, I would have loved a gold medal, but hindsight is a wonderful

:28:28.:28:32.

thing. Just to have gotten through the routine, Is away relieved. I bet

:28:33.:28:38.

you were. To have two gymnasts, and you said this Louis, on top of the

:28:39.:28:42.

world here. We are talking over 16. It is incredibly difficult to main

:28:43.:28:46.

that and achieve that. You must be feeling great, the pair of you going

:28:47.:28:51.

ahead to Brazil? Yeah, definitely. Not even just that, the I think the

:28:52.:28:56.

whole team, girls and boys, it has been making history throughout the

:28:57.:29:01.

whole week. That can make us go into next year, Europeans and into Rio,

:29:02.:29:04.

with so much confidence. Really relax into it and get a feel for it

:29:05.:29:08.

as quick as possible, so we are looking forward to it. There's

:29:09.:29:11.

another world champion being crowned at the moment. This is Ri Se Gwang.

:29:12.:29:23.

We'll be pausing for the national anthem for him shortly. Initially

:29:24.:29:30.

coming into here the aim was to get to Rio. When do you start refocusing

:29:31.:29:35.

for your own individual finals and the thought of getting that team

:29:36.:29:40.

medal? It is always a secondary target. You are always thinking team

:29:41.:29:45.

first, but you have individual goals you want to accomplish along the

:29:46.:29:49.

way. When we had done with the team event and we realised the finals,

:29:50.:29:53.

you can start to do your own preparation and get the team finals

:29:54.:29:57.

out of the way and focus. We'll hold that thought as we pause for the

:29:58.:30:07.

national anthem of Korea. Ladies and gentlemen, the national anthem of

:30:08.:30:11.

the democratic People's Republic of Korea.

:30:12.:30:39.

But DEMOCRATIC PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF KOREA national anthem

:30:40.:31:08.

DEMOCRATIC PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF KOREA national anthem

:31:09.:31:39.

World champion on vault, ahead of Marian Dragulescu in silver medal.

:31:40.:31:57.

Whittenburg takes the bronze. What a comeback from Marian Dragulescu. We

:31:58.:32:01.

have talked about it, 34 years old, lads. It's lovely to see him back,

:32:02.:32:06.

don't you think? Brilliant. First and second have a combined age of

:32:07.:32:12.

64! I was talking to him in the training gym, he said his body feels

:32:13.:32:16.

good and his mind feels great. He doesn't stop taking selfies, so he

:32:17.:32:21.

knows it is one of his last comebacks! One of his last

:32:22.:32:26.

comebacks, that is a great line! Might as well, why not? It was

:32:27.:32:30.

hilarious seeing him with his selfie stick. Let's reflect on your floor

:32:31.:32:36.

performance, Max. Huge congratulations. Ken so she right is

:32:37.:32:41.

always going to be tough to beat. Was it all about the silver? --

:32:42.:32:46.

Kenzo July is always going to be tough to beat. I focus on my routine

:32:47.:32:55.

and I don't think about medals. -- Shirai. My first world

:32:56.:32:59.

championships, I just tried to go as clean as possible. You look

:33:00.:33:05.

incredibly comfortable on the floor. That helped me in the final, I

:33:06.:33:10.

posted two 15.7s beforehand which gave me so much confidence. I knew I

:33:11.:33:16.

just had to do the same again. And then see after that. How different

:33:17.:33:20.

did the floor area field to other ones you have worked on? Everything

:33:21.:33:28.

is slightly different. -- feel to other ones. Gymnasts have to adapt

:33:29.:33:34.

to different arenas and different equipment. It's always going to be

:33:35.:33:38.

different. You have to adapt as quick as possible. That is what we

:33:39.:33:43.

train for. That is why we train in different environments. Different

:33:44.:33:48.

types of pressure. The Bear Grylls of gymnastics! One thing you can't

:33:49.:33:55.

train for is the noise in this place. As you walk up, the

:33:56.:34:01.

difference between the screaming and then the silence, that must be very,

:34:02.:34:06.

very difficult to compose yourself. It is. It's a challenge, it is

:34:07.:34:12.

tough. One of the disadvantage of having a home crowd is having a home

:34:13.:34:16.

crowd, it is through the roof, it is electric. I had to take a moment

:34:17.:34:18.

before the pommel horse routine to tell everyone to calm down a bit. It

:34:19.:34:26.

really was crazy. So many firsts at this World Championships, it has

:34:27.:34:30.

been a joy to witness. We will show you the highlights of the team

:34:31.:34:34.

final, the best ever placing for a British team in a World

:34:35.:34:38.

Championships. Let's just go for it. We knew the potential was there, we

:34:39.:34:43.

just tried not to think about it, anything like that. Such an intense

:34:44.:34:48.

competition. I was definitely in the zone, my moment. The whole thing

:34:49.:34:57.

from the start to the end, we were relentless as a team. It was a case

:34:58.:35:04.

of putting up the arm and hitting the routine. To deliver in front of

:35:05.:35:11.

a home crowd is incredible. I lot of pressure, the first world

:35:12.:35:16.

championship, the vault was big. I was more nervous watching Max than

:35:17.:35:22.

my own job. Start of the routine, thinking, this is crazy! The crowd,

:35:23.:35:28.

it is like a constant noise, which is unreal. Great Britain are world

:35:29.:35:37.

team silver medallists! Sit back and be proud of what we have achieved.

:35:38.:35:41.

To have the competition we did, it was literally perfect. It means a

:35:42.:35:44.

lot. It was was literally perfect. It means a

:35:45.:35:52.

proud to be a part of it. Do you know, so

:35:53.:35:55.

proud to be a part of it. Do you it? That seems like ages ago. When

:35:56.:35:59.

you watch it now, how do you feel? Relieved. We have all been working

:36:00.:36:07.

for this for so long. We have been progressing as a squad. We have

:36:08.:36:12.

funnelled the team together here and we have done a job. It's a testament

:36:13.:36:17.

to how hard not just we are working but people behind the scenes who

:36:18.:36:21.

don't get the credit. This is the thing, Dan, it is such a challenge

:36:22.:36:27.

to get into this team. It is, there were only six places available. It

:36:28.:36:31.

will be even harder next year when there are only five. 15 gymnasts

:36:32.:36:35.

pushing everyone hard to get in the team. That makes us stronger as a

:36:36.:36:41.

nation. Thinking of Lilleshall, the National sports Centre, you are

:36:42.:36:45.

there and it is not just you, the women have done it as well. They

:36:46.:36:50.

made history on the very first day of the finals. This is how they got

:36:51.:36:51.

on. # Good times. As soon as we walked

:36:52.:37:03.

out, we waved and the roar from the crowd was amazing behind us. We have

:37:04.:37:09.

been training for months and months and months, we fight for absolutely

:37:10.:37:15.

everything. I was nervous going into the bars, it didn't go to plan. We

:37:16.:37:20.

just went, don't worry about it, never say never. It put me in a

:37:21.:37:26.

better mindset for the beam, because I knew I had to focus more. Becky

:37:27.:37:31.

has been keeping as calm. Whatever happens, happens. -- keeping us

:37:32.:37:38.

calm. None of us could hear ourselves think. That was the best

:37:39.:37:45.

vault I have ever completed. It was pretty special. When we got ahead of

:37:46.:37:52.

Russia after my score, I couldn't believe it. When the score came in,

:37:53.:37:58.

I was completely shocked. Kept looking at the scoreboard, it was

:37:59.:38:02.

incredible. That is a bronze medal for Great Britain! It's absolutely

:38:03.:38:07.

fantastic that we have been able to walk away with a team bronze medal.

:38:08.:38:14.

Made history. A massive roar has just gone up because Beth Tweddle

:38:15.:38:22.

has gone down to present the women'sbeam medals. But let's

:38:23.:38:29.

reflect on what the women did. You must have been aware of what they

:38:30.:38:33.

were doing. Looking back through the history of British gymnasts, for a

:38:34.:38:37.

long time the women were up there, the men took over, and then the

:38:38.:38:41.

women... Did you feel under enormous pressure to keep the consistency

:38:42.:38:45.

going, Max? Yes, there was that pressure. It did inspire us, in a

:38:46.:38:51.

way, to compete the way we did the next day. Their team is so young, so

:38:52.:38:56.

to do what they did with not a lot of experience was pretty amazing. To

:38:57.:39:03.

make the finals they made, the girls and boys for Great Britain, it is in

:39:04.:39:08.

a very good place. Absolutely. The juniors coming through, how well

:39:09.:39:11.

they have been able to cope in a situation like this. It says an

:39:12.:39:15.

enormous amount looking forward, because it does not feel like this

:39:16.:39:19.

is a flash in the pan for Great Britain. Definitely not. We have

:39:20.:39:23.

been training for this for a long time, starting about a decade ago.

:39:24.:39:28.

Beth Tweddle. Numerous World Championship medals. It has been a

:39:29.:39:35.

long time coming. Great Britain are here to stay for a long time in the

:39:36.:39:41.

gymnastics world. There are always these nations and individual

:39:42.:39:43.

gymnasts that the rest of the world seem to be chasing, and this is a

:39:44.:39:47.

fine example right here. Simone Biles comes out to receive her ninth

:39:48.:39:54.

world title. Goodness me. She still has the floor to come today.

:39:55.:40:00.

Imagine, ten by the end of today. Simone Biles takes the gold, 3 of

:40:01.:40:07.

the four individual apparatus finals. Incredible. Wevers takes the

:40:08.:40:14.

silver medal, but this moment is all about her. Beth stepping forward as

:40:15.:40:18.

well. Wevers takes the silver medal back

:40:19.:40:30.

to the Netherlands, the Dutch champion. Third for Pauline Schafer.

:40:31.:40:39.

You could see how emotional she was. She is off to Rio as well. This

:40:40.:40:47.

gymnast... It's hard to compete against a gymnast who believes in

:40:48.:40:52.

the ethos of fun. She goes out there and just has a great time, enjoying

:40:53.:40:56.

herself. How do you put pressure on a gymnast like that, Dan? That is

:40:57.:41:03.

what is so amazing about her. She is like the Uchimura of women's gymnast

:41:04.:41:06.

ticks, she seems to be winning everything but she is having fun at

:41:07.:41:09.

the same time, which is so good to see. We will hold it there.

:41:10.:41:24.

AMERICAN national anthem AMERICAN national anthem AMERICAN national

:41:25.:42:06.

Simone Biles takes her ninth title. The chance of a 10th still to come

:42:07.:42:28.

in the women'sfloor final where she will be joined by Ellie Downie and

:42:29.:42:33.

Claudia Fragapane. That is still to come very shortly, as is the men's P

:42:34.:42:41.

bar final. Exciting times again for Great Britain. Nile Wilson is the

:42:42.:42:45.

first British gymnast ever to qualify for the P bars final. You

:42:46.:42:53.

are specialist, Daniel. Your P B is over 16. Definitely. It is only his

:42:54.:42:59.

second world championship. To make the P bar final, he has such a

:43:00.:43:05.

bright future ahead of him. As far as the P bar routines are

:43:06.:43:08.

concerned, let's talk the viewers through the perfect routine and what

:43:09.:43:13.

is difficult. A great routine, you have a mixture of under bar elements

:43:14.:43:20.

and above bar elements. A lot of dismounts, double front with a half

:43:21.:43:24.

turn to increase the difficulty. Keep pushing it right to the finish

:43:25.:43:28.

and put in the extra half turn, when the landing is going to be key.

:43:29.:43:34.

Definitely. That is going to be one of the main focuses, the landings,

:43:35.:43:39.

because so many of the starts course will be so similar. Whoever nails

:43:40.:43:43.

the landing will be in with a shout. Nile Wilson and your score is

:43:44.:43:49.

matched in qualification, there is always going to be an argument about

:43:50.:43:53.

how many gymnasts should be allowed per country in the top 24, it was

:43:54.:44:00.

tough luck for Nile in the all-round qualification. It can be harsh

:44:01.:44:04.

sometimes. When a gymnast deserves to be in, it is tough when they are

:44:05.:44:10.

not. But Nile is very young and talented, so he has a lot of chances

:44:11.:44:14.

ahead of him and he will go on to do great things. In this P bar final,

:44:15.:44:19.

he has done so many solid routines in training and hopefully he can

:44:20.:44:23.

pull it off today. Will it be difficult? It has been a while since

:44:24.:44:28.

he has been in here for the team final, he has heard everything... He

:44:29.:44:33.

is fired up, isn't he, Dan? He can't wait to get out there. Definitely.

:44:34.:44:39.

He is going to be excited to be out there competing. He curbs so well

:44:40.:44:42.

under pressure, he loves the atmosphere and it makes him perform

:44:43.:44:48.

so much better. -- he curbs. We will keep everything crossed for him. We

:44:49.:44:53.

have watched you go around with a chalk bag, Max. We have got you a

:44:54.:45:00.

little present. A brand-new chalk bag! World Champion 2015 on it.

:45:01.:45:10.

Who knows whether or not that chalk is good for you, but try it out. It

:45:11.:45:18.

might be magical stuff. We are going to continue and talk about the

:45:19.:45:22.

gymnasts behind us. These are the P bar finalists. We've got some

:45:23.:45:31.

interesting pictures we are going to look at, because Shudi Deng is very

:45:32.:45:35.

interesting, Dan? Definitely, he scored a 16 in the team final, which

:45:36.:45:40.

should be unthere in the medals. It will be really exciting to watch

:45:41.:45:47.

him. His compatriot is coming out, Hao You. He was fourth at the World

:45:48.:45:54.

Gymnastics Championships in 2013. He's a gymnast capable of scoring in

:45:55.:46:01.

the 16s, Verniaiev. Hinge he's hit 16 twice already. He is so

:46:02.:46:08.

consistent on this apparatus. Danell Leyva is a master on the high bar, a

:46:09.:46:13.

master on the P bars as well. Plenty of fireworks there. I love Leyva's P

:46:14.:46:20.

bar routine. It is basically a high bar routine on P bars. 8 elements

:46:21.:46:27.

under the war. On P bars. 8 elements -- under the bar. He's had a sticky

:46:28.:46:33.

condition, just a bit off. He had a few mistakes in the all-around

:46:34.:46:37.

final, but he qualified in great position for the high bar and P

:46:38.:46:43.

bars. If he puts in a good performance he could come away with

:46:44.:46:49.

medals. And this is Verniaiev. The current world champion, current

:46:50.:46:53.

European champion as well. He's been double European champion. He's such

:46:54.:46:58.

a light gymnast. Looking at the different body types, he's got the

:46:59.:47:02.

perfect frame for this. I think so. He seems light. He's quite small and

:47:03.:47:07.

he's very powerful. He's one of the only gymnasts as well. He competes

:47:08.:47:12.

in every competition during the year, doing the all-around. It is a

:47:13.:47:15.

unbelievable year, doing the all-around. It is a

:47:16.:47:22.

that. And Max, a word from you on this man, Manrique Larduet. What a

:47:23.:47:27.

world debut he's had. I didn't know of him before I come into these

:47:28.:47:31.

World Championships. I heard the boys talking about this guy from

:47:32.:47:36.

Cuba. He's amazing. He has come from nowhere and backed a medal in the

:47:37.:47:40.

all-around. You certainly know about him now! Certainly. You should see

:47:41.:47:48.

the tattoo on his arm, it says, the return of Cuban gymnastics.

:47:49.:47:52.

the tattoo on his arm, it says, the CHEERING. Talking of the return of

:47:53.:47:58.

gymnasts, here comes Nile Wilson. Listen to that roar! He looks ready.

:47:59.:48:05.

What's it like, Max, for you to be watching these finals instead of

:48:06.:48:10.

being in them? Really nice. I feel really chilled. It is crazy but I

:48:11.:48:15.

can't wait to watch this final. It is going to be very close indeed.

:48:16.:48:20.

The penultimate gymnast on to the stage, it is wonderful the way they

:48:21.:48:26.

all come out. This is Shudi Deng, the seventh highest qualifier. 24

:48:27.:48:30.

years old. But he'll be hungry for a P bars medal. He was

:48:31.:48:36.

years old. But he'll be hungry for a year's world's. Got fourth in the

:48:37.:48:38.

floor final. You know what it is like to compete against this guy,

:48:39.:48:44.

Max. This guy picked up an all-around medal. He's in a good

:48:45.:48:49.

place. I think Chinese gymnasts always pull them out of the

:48:50.:48:52.

place. I think Chinese gymnasts They were always amazing, talented

:48:53.:48:55.

gymnasts, so he'll be putting in a good score today.

:48:56.:48:57.

gymnasts, so he'll be putting in a congratulations to the team for

:48:58.:49:00.

beating the Chinese in the team final. I bet but didn't see that

:49:01.:49:02.

coming did you? No, not at all. final. I bet but didn't see that

:49:03.:49:08.

we go with the last gymnast from the eight. Qualified last week, this is

:49:09.:49:19.

Yusuke Tanaka. He's one of the most stylist gymnasts to watch. Really

:49:20.:49:24.

nice P bars. This one is going to go right down to the wire, so we'll let

:49:25.:49:29.

the gymnasts unzip their track suits and we'll hand over to Mitch Fenner

:49:30.:49:32.

and Christine Still in the commentary box. This one is set to

:49:33.:49:38.

be a good one. The men's final in the parallel bars. For me one of the

:49:39.:49:43.

most exciting pieces of apparatus these days. The parallel bars. They

:49:44.:49:50.

swing beautifully and they've transformed the contest. The man for

:49:51.:49:55.

my money is Oleg Verniaiev. What a final, a great event. It's stylish,

:49:56.:50:00.

risky and it really has developed. . It has. It is one of my more

:50:01.:50:05.

favoured pieces now and you see them, the lights go up and on they

:50:06.:50:13.

perform. No warm-up today. Oleg Stepko. He is capable of some

:50:14.:50:22.

beautiful work. This will be a Homber. Very smoothly. Just lost

:50:23.:50:35.

form a little. Snatched the Healey. And that's the somersault. Little

:50:36.:50:46.

adjustments, which add up. Two consecutive supermarkets, which add

:50:47.:51:00.

-- two consecutive somer assaults. -- two consecutive somer assaults.

:51:01.:51:06.

-- somersault. Needs lots of flight for the tip out and delivers. There

:51:07.:51:13.

had been tiny adjustments, but you can see the skill of this man. A

:51:14.:51:25.

very efficient routine, with a very efficient landing and dismount. Very

:51:26.:51:29.

first start. First person up often sets the scene for the rest of the

:51:30.:51:33.

gymnasts, even though it is not a team. But when you get the first

:51:34.:51:38.

gymnast in a final being first and clean, it will often mean the rest

:51:39.:51:43.

work well as well. It is a super event. That's a difficult move, from

:51:44.:51:49.

the upper arms. Catch from straight arms and keep the swing. The chest

:51:50.:51:53.

has to go in to allow for a smooth swing. Difficult. This is the

:51:54.:52:05.

straddle. Front semi to catch. Everything was precise on the big

:52:06.:52:10.

moves but on the tiny moves he had a couple of falters. There's one there

:52:11.:52:15.

just in the handstand at the end of the tip-out. He's got such beautiful

:52:16.:52:20.

extension though. Toes always pointed. Not quite. Yes, the

:52:21.:52:29.

extension all the convey through. Just a little flicker on landing,

:52:30.:52:36.

Stepko. Did the foot just slide behind? Yes, but he doesn't care.

:52:37.:52:48.

And neither does he. He's happy. Stepko delivering first up in this

:52:49.:52:57.

final. First up is always hard. He's not let himself, his coach or his

:52:58.:53:04.

country down. For so long these guys dominated the apparatus, China.

:53:05.:53:15.

Interestingly, You... Stepko's score is 15.966. That's going be very

:53:16.:53:29.

tough to beat. This gymnast, Hao, he couldn't compete last year so this

:53:30.:53:34.

is a real chance for him this year. 23 years old. And he managed to get

:53:35.:53:48.

a 15.3933 in the team final on this piece of apparatus -- 15.393. It is

:53:49.:53:59.

a very different atmosphere in these individual apparatus finals. With

:54:00.:54:02.

the all-around there's stuff going on, lots of people to look at and

:54:03.:54:08.

you don't feel in the spotlight. But this, all eyes are on the individual

:54:09.:54:16.

gymnast. So second gymnast up, You Hao. He did score 15.933 in the team

:54:17.:54:24.

qualification. The score to beat is 15.966. Look for double somersaults.

:54:25.:54:36.

You can see protection on his arms. First double. Beautifully

:54:37.:54:45.

negotiated. Oh, fantastic. The extra rotation in the Suarez. That sets

:54:46.:54:52.

this routine apart. Half turn in the peach. Again it is clean. Legs

:54:53.:55:05.

locked together in the double pike. And not one small adjustment.

:55:06.:55:12.

There's a clean, the tip-out, without catch. Superb. A small

:55:13.:55:24.

hesitation there. I think he just avoided contacting the apparatus.

:55:25.:55:32.

Another biggie. Double front. Half turn, he nailed it. It was that 7

:55:33.:55:39.

8ths of a turn? I'm not sure. Such a routine from him. The judges will

:55:40.:55:45.

have to look at this incredibly closely, as they'll be scrutinising

:55:46.:55:50.

every tenth. There may have been a slight drop, and the dismount

:55:51.:55:54.

they'll look at as well. They tend to land this double front half turn

:55:55.:55:59.

deeply, and I guess that must be a bit of a deduction. Look at, that

:56:00.:56:04.

it's beautiful. How he keeps the rhythm of the swing. With Really

:56:05.:56:08.

nice, strong work. This is beautiful work. Watch this. There's the Suarez

:56:09.:56:15.

but he hangs a little bit, the extra rotation and the cuts from it.

:56:16.:56:22.

That's great control. Very original work. This is the swinging work we

:56:23.:56:27.

are talking about, where it is becoming really more like high bar.

:56:28.:56:32.

That's a real challenge from the tip-out. Cut-back after tip-out to

:56:33.:56:40.

give that extra shave of rotation. This is super this routine. It is

:56:41.:56:47.

one of the most painful pieces of operate us to master as well,

:56:48.:56:51.

because you are constantly clattering yourself, whether it's

:56:52.:56:54.

your feet, your upper arms, especially the upper arm work. That

:56:55.:56:59.

dismount, we are seeing it again. Very nice, clean dismount, but the

:57:00.:57:03.

feet are just a little... I think they'll give it but with a

:57:04.:57:07.

deduction. If it is three quarters, does it go all the way around? It's

:57:08.:57:15.

an enormous 16. .216. That is most certainly the score to beat. 7.3

:57:16.:57:21.

difficulty. Stepko down into second. Six gymnasts still to go in this

:57:22.:57:26.

World Gymnastics Championships of the parallel bars. Just talking

:57:27.:57:32.

about the comparison between high bar and P bars, this lad, Danell

:57:33.:57:39.

Leyva, certainly knows how to swing both of those apparatus. He's a

:57:40.:57:46.

former world champion on this piece in 2011. He got silver last year. He

:57:47.:57:53.

isn't tall. He looks tall, gives the impression with his swinging that he

:57:54.:57:59.

has long levers, but he is not a tall gymnast. There's a full turn in

:58:00.:58:07.

the peach. Lovely work. To one rail, but did he hold it for one clean

:58:08.:58:14.

second? I don't think so. The extra turn. He has almost a lazy approach

:58:15.:58:31.

to his swing. Stood to handstand. Big double front, well landed. Super

:58:32.:58:39.

work. He needs 16.216. Is he going to be knocking on the door of a

:58:40.:58:45.

medal? Such a clean dismount. That landing is completely blind and he

:58:46.:58:50.

really nailed it. Didn't give a lot away. A couple of flutters early on

:58:51.:58:57.

but what a level of performance. There's the Giant. Makes the

:58:58.:59:05.

handstand. There you go, the Suarez. Very nicely done. There's the coach.

:59:06.:59:13.

The father, of course, and totally involved in his son's efforts.

:59:14.:59:18.

Straight arms until the very last minute. Impresses the lockout to

:59:19.:59:20.

make the full turn. Such a hard move minute. Impresses the lockout to

:59:21.:59:30.

to time. Clean swing ing with. He was the man who made the transition

:59:31.:59:38.

from strength and static to flowing high bar-style P bars. And look at

:59:39.:59:42.

that dismount. He deserves a good score. Will it be quite difficult

:59:43.:59:51.

enough? And so does he. There he is hopping around. When Leyva retires

:59:52.:59:57.

they'll make a good partnership in sports acro. I think all coaches do

:59:58.:00:06.

live the routine but not all quite as dem on vatively than this.

:00:07.:00:15.

Not easy to spot those. Qualification difficulty was 6.9. We

:00:16.:00:25.

have already seen a 7.3, so he will need to have upped

:00:26.:00:27.

have already seen a 7.3, so he will the hunt. Will he struggle to get

:00:28.:00:36.

into the 16s? I think it will be the high 15s. It was 6.9 in

:00:37.:00:40.

qualification. Certainly the standard of the first

:00:41.:00:49.

three routines has been mind-boggling. Any medal in this

:00:50.:00:55.

final is just the most remarkable achievement. Pushing what is

:00:56.:00:57.

possible. Hydro Arena is in third at the

:00:58.:01:09.

moment. A lot of good gymnasts to come. -- Hydro -- Danell Leyva is in

:01:10.:01:17.

third at the moment. The Ukrainian gymnast Oleh

:01:18.:01:35.

Vernyayev, looking to retain his world title on this piece. His

:01:36.:01:46.

16.133, in qualifying, was with a mistake.

:01:47.:01:53.

Half turn. No extra adjustment in the handstand grasp.

:01:54.:02:03.

Healy out, super so far, not a sign of a deduction.

:02:04.:02:16.

So far, I can't find anything wrong with this.

:02:17.:02:23.

The big dismount, a hop forward. Apart from that, the judges would

:02:24.:02:36.

have been hard pushed to find much wrong with that. Mr Vernyayev, you

:02:37.:02:42.

are spectacular on this apparatus. Did he miss a link in the middle,

:02:43.:02:47.

though? I thought he was going to go out and come down and then go back

:02:48.:02:54.

up again, who knows? You can only deduct... You cannot assume, you can

:02:55.:02:59.

only deduct on what you see, it was not a clear mistake. Would it have

:03:00.:03:05.

affected his difficulty? It might well have done. He posted 7.1 in

:03:06.:03:11.

qualification, 7.2 in the all-around. Absolutely spot on up

:03:12.:03:15.

until that point. Precise. He was hitting handstands

:03:16.:03:30.

so beautifully, you wonder if he almost went a little bit too

:03:31.:03:33.

straight in order to get the momentum to go out. Anyway, as you

:03:34.:03:38.

say, you can only deduct for what he did. It's only the start value in

:03:39.:03:46.

question now, the D score. A little bit of quick thinking. Might I be

:03:47.:03:52.

right in thinking he definitely needs a medal to win an Olympic

:03:53.:03:53.

place? Yeah. He is given 7.1. He is happy with

:03:54.:04:14.

second. Two scores in the 16s. Hao, the leader. Ahead of and Stepko. --

:04:15.:04:32.

Vernyayev and Stepko. I seem to remember another final with two 16s

:04:33.:04:38.

in it. The pommel horse. All of the best ones do!

:04:39.:04:44.

Here he is, his third final. The last great Cuban gymnast, Roberto

:04:45.:04:57.

Richards in 1976... He is not doing a bad job.

:04:58.:05:04.

Swinging very clean, getting the handstand.

:05:05.:05:13.

Flowing handstand -based movements is what the judges are looking for,

:05:14.:05:32.

and look at that dismount! And you see him click his heels together at

:05:33.:05:37.

the end? What a talent this young lad is, 19 years old, he is an

:05:38.:05:42.

all-around gymnast and yet here he is, he could specialise in three of

:05:43.:05:46.

them. And what a dismount. We said if they land the double front half

:05:47.:05:54.

outs a bit low... Nothing wrong with that. The height he generated in the

:05:55.:06:01.

middle of the routine as well. That was nice too.

:06:02.:06:09.

It is hard to get your arms straight early and keep them straight. A

:06:10.:06:19.

little bend there. That's a tough start.

:06:20.:06:23.

This is the height you were talking about, Matt. Look at that, superb.

:06:24.:06:32.

He was 30 centimetres vomit in new money, a foot in old money, above

:06:33.:06:39.

the bars to clear it. -- 30 centimetres in old money. He really

:06:40.:06:43.

does look a very exciting prospect, doesn't he? He certainly does. I

:06:44.:06:52.

guess he must also be in the same situation, he got a medal in the

:06:53.:06:55.

all-around but not in the apparatus yet, and it is the first three in

:06:56.:06:59.

each apparatus that qualify in their own right. Nothing low about that

:07:00.:07:07.

gymnast in the dismount. Superb. Fourth. 15.733. 6.9 difficulty, what

:07:08.:07:16.

what a score for parallel bars in any case. All other scores have been

:07:17.:07:29.

above fantastic stuff. The next gymnast, competing for Great

:07:30.:07:33.

Britain, Nile Wilson, Junior European champion last year on this

:07:34.:07:34.

piece of apparatus. That's nice. A tiny end at the top

:07:35.:07:39.

of the handstand. -- bend. A little waver on the one rail. The

:07:40.:08:03.

technique is great. Lovely in the giant, great in the double. Smooth

:08:04.:08:05.

swing. Keep it going. Nice. The rid of the uprise

:08:06.:08:21.

connected with the height of the somersault. -- the rhythm.

:08:22.:08:28.

A little break of rhythm but this is technically very good. Tiny little

:08:29.:08:38.

adjustments there, double pike, a little step back but that was a real

:08:39.:08:43.

fine effort in his first final in the P bars for Great Britain. And he

:08:44.:08:47.

lands as the first British gymnast ever to make a final in parallel

:08:48.:08:52.

bars at a World Championships. Well done. Tremendous effort. He has all

:08:53.:09:01.

of the heart in the world. But a lot of good technique as well.

:09:02.:09:09.

Technically, a great gymnast with a great future. A nice handstand

:09:10.:09:20.

shape. Lovely handstand shape. A well extended gymnast, beautiful

:09:21.:09:26.

handstand, flat back, the extended. -- feet extended. Knees locked

:09:27.:09:33.

together, really doesn't give many marks away. His difficulty score

:09:34.:09:39.

won't be massive, it it won't be in the sevens. Look at the effort on

:09:40.:09:45.

his face. But his execution should be good. Yes. Crossed his toes for

:09:46.:09:57.

good luck there! A great effort in a first world final, and in such

:09:58.:10:01.

company. These really are huge performances. 15.233! Good job! He

:10:02.:10:11.

worked very hard at the handstand adjustments. Severely dealt with.

:10:12.:10:19.

We are in for another treat now. Just needs more difficulty.

:10:20.:10:26.

We are in for another treat now. Whenever the Chinese approach the

:10:27.:10:33.

parallel bars. You can be sure of something hugely impressive. His

:10:34.:10:38.

compatriot leads the field with 16.216. 16.066, Silver. 15.966, that

:10:39.:10:53.

would knock Stepko out of the medals. Double pike.

:10:54.:10:59.

Half turn. And a double. All from different connections.

:11:00.:11:24.

This is another Healy to uninterrupted swing. Just

:11:25.:11:52.

adjusted at the end! Healy to uninterrupted swing. Just

:11:53.:12:03.

stuff. Well, this, I think, is now going to come down to difficulty.

:12:04.:12:08.

Talking about the execution, how hard did he go? That is the

:12:09.:12:14.

question. 7.1, he posted in the qualification, the team final and

:12:15.:12:19.

the all-around. The dismount looked like it was stark, and then as an

:12:20.:12:24.

afterthought he had a hop. The work on the apparatus was superb. Superb

:12:25.:12:29.

and sublime, because he was in control. A virtuoso performer. A lot

:12:30.:12:36.

and sublime, because he was in of double pikes, all from different

:12:37.:12:38.

start positions. That was terrific. Swinging into handstand shape.

:12:39.:12:52.

Flowing to and from the handstand is what the judges are looking for.

:12:53.:12:53.

Lovely. Look at the line.

:12:54.:12:56.

nailed, didn't we, Chris? He is Look at the line.

:12:57.:13:16.

then! The coach celebrating, and his compatriot as well. He didn't quite

:13:17.:13:24.

make 16. 15.966. So close. Well actually, he is joint third with

:13:25.:13:31.

Stepko. At the moment they are sharing the bronze medal. What a

:13:32.:13:33.

final. China, one and three at the moment.

:13:34.:13:46.

Vernyayev in silver medal position for Ukraine. Stepko shares bronze at

:13:47.:13:54.

the moment. However, use a Kate Tanaka, great to watch. -- however,

:13:55.:14:07.

use UK Tanaka, great to watch. You can't write him off. That is the

:14:08.:14:12.

best version of that skill. High and clean.

:14:13.:14:16.

So much time, full extension. Chest downwards. One rail. Quite a few

:14:17.:14:27.

have had to adjust for that. Half turn swing to handstand, out on

:14:28.:14:50.

one rail, there is no connection. -- the connection. Very nicely done.

:14:51.:14:58.

Double pike. Thank you very much! What a superb landing. That was

:14:59.:15:03.

really special, that routine, wasn't it? Beginning to end. Well, where is

:15:04.:15:10.

he going to fit in among the top spots? Surely he has got to be

:15:11.:15:20.

sharing bronze, or even better? His difficulty in qualification was only

:15:21.:15:24.

6.6, so he is going to have to have upped it quite a bit to penetrate.

:15:25.:15:32.

Absolutely. I could not count the D score and commentate at the same

:15:33.:15:37.

time, but I don't think it was much above 6.6. This is the best version

:15:38.:15:42.

of this skill. Absolutely straight arms on the catch. The way the flow

:15:43.:15:48.

continued up to the handstand, smooth as you like.

:15:49.:15:55.

It was lovely work. This is the sort of dismount that you dream about.

:15:56.:16:07.

15.966 to share bronze. A tall order I think if the difficulty level

:16:08.:16:12.

hasn't moved from 6.6, but what a cracking dismount. Oh, his

:16:13.:16:28.

difficulty is down at 6.6. 15.6 is the final score. Tanaka in seventh.

:16:29.:16:38.

So Hao You is the new world champion. Fourth back in 2003.

:16:39.:16:49.

Silver medallist on the rings, but Oleg Verniaiev, he came here as the

:16:50.:16:53.

world champion. He settles for silver. And the bronze is shared

:16:54.:17:07.

between Oleg Stepko and Shudi Deng. What a super final. I've come to

:17:08.:17:14.

really enjoy that apparatus. Stepko was the first gymnast up. He gave

:17:15.:17:18.

them the target to aim for and he piled the pressure on. He just

:17:19.:17:23.

produced the most wonderful parallel bars final. We'll see confirmation

:17:24.:17:31.

of the final result. Every single gymnast producing their very best.

:17:32.:17:46.

Hao You, 16.216. If you had said, Mitch, two gymnasts on the today um

:17:47.:18:01.

why in the 16s... Nile Wilson finishes 8th but a wonderful

:18:02.:18:06.

performance from him. The first British gymnast to make the parallel

:18:07.:18:10.

bars final at the world championships. Nile, bottom of the

:18:11.:18:16.

final but it is a historic participation for a British man in a

:18:17.:18:20.

parallel bars final. How happy are you just to be there? Extremely

:18:21.:18:26.

happy. This week has been incredible for British gymnastics as a whole. I

:18:27.:18:31.

knew it was going to be tough to get in the places but I think this week

:18:32.:18:38.

has shown gymnastics is so unpredictable and hit or miss. I was

:18:39.:18:42.

happy to be in the final, an historic event. I'm proud to

:18:43.:18:45.

represent my country out there today. The commentators were talking

:18:46.:18:50.

about the standard, it was extremely high. What was it like watching the

:18:51.:18:55.

guys perform ahead of you? Massive inspiration and motivation for me.

:18:56.:19:00.

I'm just proud to actually be in the top 8 in the world on parallel bars.

:19:01.:19:06.

As a nation we've been on parallel bars as much as being not so strong,

:19:07.:19:11.

and I'm glad I can step up and prove that we are fantastic on the

:19:12.:19:14.

parallel bars. The message I want to get across this week is how well

:19:15.:19:21.

British gymnastics have done. In 2006 at the Olympics I was sitting

:19:22.:19:25.

at home as a boy watching Louis Smith. It has given us the belief as

:19:26.:19:30.

a nation that we can come to these competitions and compete with the

:19:31.:19:33.

best of the world. All the kids watching at home, get to the gym

:19:34.:19:37.

tomorrow, work your hardest and pull together as a country and we can be

:19:38.:19:41.

world champions one day. You've provided a lot of inspiration. You

:19:42.:19:45.

look like you've been enjoying it out there. Coming out, after the

:19:46.:19:52.

team you did the same. You've enjoyed it here haven't you? It's

:19:53.:19:56.

been unbelievable. With the home Games, coming here with the crowd

:19:57.:20:01.

behind you, not many people get to experience that. I've second up

:20:02.:20:04.

every moment and used that crowd and that support. I want to say everyone

:20:05.:20:10.

who has came and supported. The messages on social media. It is all

:20:11.:20:13.

fantastic. I've loved every second of it. Nile, thank you very much.

:20:14.:20:21.

Thank you. And well done to Nile. Very well said, I must say. If he's

:20:22.:20:26.

inspired you, he said get down to the gym. Head to our BBC website,

:20:27.:20:30.

because we'll put lots of information on there on how you can

:20:31.:20:34.

get inspired. CHEERING AND APPLAUSE. Here comes

:20:35.:20:40.

Claudia Fragapane, ready for the women's floor final. She took gold

:20:41.:20:46.

here at the Commonwealth games here at the SSE Hydro on this piece of

:20:47.:20:51.

apparatus, as well as another three golds to boot. Ellie Downie also

:20:52.:20:55.

competing in the women's floor final. She will be up very shortly.

:20:56.:21:00.

In fact she's coming now. CHEERING. And what a competition

:21:01.:21:09.

Ellie has been having here at the world championships. It is a

:21:10.:21:12.

wonderful celebration. It feels like a great final day. Everybody is

:21:13.:21:17.

thoroughly enjoying watching these gymnasts, the finest in the world,

:21:18.:21:23.

with great British gymnasts among them. If we can have a quick word

:21:24.:21:30.

ahead of this final. You were world champion in 2009. I know you are

:21:31.:21:34.

always asked about your music and how you design these routines. Give

:21:35.:21:39.

us a nod what we are about to see here? When the gymnasts choose the

:21:40.:21:43.

music and the choreography, most of the time the gymnasts will bring in

:21:44.:21:46.

an external choreographer. With regards to the music it can be a

:21:47.:21:49.

combination between the gymnasts and the coach. For me it was very much

:21:50.:21:54.

Amanda always chose my music. The music I used in 2009 for this floor

:21:55.:21:58.

routine was specially composed. music I used in 2009 for this floor

:21:59.:22:02.

London 2012 I wanted something big and British, so I chose Live and Let

:22:03.:22:08.

Die. As far as the difficulty versus the dance elements are concerned,

:22:09.:22:13.

because it is always a difficult conundrum to get that makes right.

:22:14.:22:17.

Ndrum to get that makes right. -- to get that mix right. The judges will

:22:18.:22:22.

get that mixture, but we have amazing tumblers. The floor has

:22:23.:22:26.

changed over four years, so the tumbles you will see are what some

:22:27.:22:30.

of the lads are doing. Especially with Simone and the first Japanese

:22:31.:22:34.

girl, you can expect superb tumbling. With the artistry, there's

:22:35.:22:39.

a deduction for it if they don't like it. Let's settle in and enjoy

:22:40.:22:44.

the women's floor final. The first gymnast up is Sae Miyakawa from

:22:45.:22:52.

Japan. Second highest qualifier. And the whole of the Japanese women's

:22:53.:22:57.

team wowed us with their flew review teens, but this one was totally

:22:58.:23:13.

exceptional. Very big first tumble. Full twisting double straight.

:23:14.:23:24.

Watch out, guys, for this next tumble. Very unusual for the girls.

:23:25.:23:35.

Straight front. Double front. Just a little pace. Nicely performed leaps.

:23:36.:23:50.

And bear had mind this is the third tumble.

:23:51.:23:56.

And bear had mind this is the third twisting, double tuck.

:23:57.:24:19.

Very classy performance into this big final tumble. Double straight,

:24:20.:24:24.

superb landing. What an opening big final tumble. Double straight,

:24:25.:24:34.

this women's floor final. Well, that is the bench mark. Goodness

:24:35.:24:37.

this women's floor final. Well, that follow that if you can. Quite

:24:38.:24:49.

exceptional tumbling and a very well-controlled performance, the

:24:50.:24:54.

leaps were good. Really going to be difficult to beat. So

:24:55.:25:03.

leaps were good. Really going to be love this. Incredible work. Full

:25:04.:25:04.

twist and the double love this. Incredible work. Full

:25:05.:25:09.

keeps form all the way. So love this. Incredible work. Full

:25:10.:25:13.

this for the love this. Incredible work. Full

:25:14.:25:15.

tumble forwards this. Unfortunately she had a little step on both

:25:16.:25:21.

landings. Great to see it. Discipline. In the twisting, double

:25:22.:25:29.

twisting-double. Was that a third tumble? Quite unbelievable. Finishes

:25:30.:25:41.

with a double straight. She just whips it round. Great stuff. Looked

:25:42.:25:47.

with a double straight. She just like she was landing a single

:25:48.:25:50.

straight back there didn't it? Really very impressive. Japan were a

:25:51.:26:02.

very good team here. Fingers crossed, my friend, there's yet

:26:03.:26:16.

another medal for Japan. 14.9 in qualification. 14.633 in the final.

:26:17.:26:31.

A 14.933 for Miyakawa. Time will tell if it is good enough for a

:26:32.:26:36.

world medal. It is going to take a lot of beating. One of the headline

:26:37.:26:40.

questions that's only been written since the last Keats of apparatus,

:26:41.:26:45.

can Simone Biles get herself a 10th world title? It's time to find out.

:26:46.:27:01.

So sprightly and fast. Another super double straight with full twist.

:27:02.:27:15.

Needs to control this tumble. Double straight with half turn, jump, and

:27:16.:27:18.

she just stays in this time. And dance ing with great conviction

:27:19.:27:55.

as well as tumbling. Another double-double, double somersault,

:27:56.:27:55.

double twist. Just needs this big full-twisting

:27:56.:28:15.

double back. Not a flicker on any of the landings. What a joy to watch.

:28:16.:28:23.

Perfectly in time at the end there as she just bounces up on to the top

:28:24.:28:29.

spot and gets that 10. That dream, goodness me, to be world champion

:28:30.:28:34.

for the tenth time in a career which, let's be honest, isn't that

:28:35.:28:41.

long. She's only 18! Well, didn't compete, wasn't old enough to

:28:42.:28:46.

compete at the last Olympics. Has been dominant ever since. Double

:28:47.:28:53.

straight. That's, I love the way she does that. The landing immediate

:28:54.:29:02.

into the jump ups her start value. Clever choreography.

:29:03.:29:11.

She's so light through the hands, isn't she? When she flips she

:29:12.:29:19.

bounces off her hands so quickly. I just, bounce up into the air, chest

:29:20.:29:24.

up. That's the fourth tumble. Quite amazing. We were impressed with the

:29:25.:29:32.

first team in terms of doubling but how can anyone ever match that? That

:29:33.:29:40.

was just incredible. A cheekily little finish isn't it? It is. Well,

:29:41.:29:49.

if she gets to the mid 15s here she's going to be unstoppable. She

:29:50.:29:55.

posted a difficulty of 6.9 in qualification. If you think the

:29:56.:30:02.

previous gymnast had a 6.3. And that was the next highest difficulty

:30:03.:30:09.

score. You were saying earlier that she enjoys, and she did. She's got

:30:10.:30:18.

to enjoy that. A 15.8. That is a record tenth world title for Simone

:30:19.:30:22.

Biles. What a World Championships it's been for her. However, it would

:30:23.:30:31.

take a miracle to beat it, but let's not confirm it until every gymnast

:30:32.:30:34.

has performed. New Enjoy this routine, very, very

:30:35.:30:49.

different. Wevers, in four Steingruber, who injured her knee on

:30:50.:30:51.

vault yesterday. Has to land the tumbles really well.

:30:52.:30:59.

She does. Double tuck. Well, a really classy, beautiful

:31:00.:32:13.

routine. Completely different from the previous two. Only did two

:32:14.:32:17.

tumbles, and the rest of her difficulty was made up with spins

:32:18.:32:21.

and leaps. But beautifully performed. Wonderfully accurate. So

:32:22.:32:24.

graceful, so elegant. The majority of gymnasts have most

:32:25.:32:39.

of their deductions on the landings, so by only doing two tumbles, she

:32:40.:32:44.

only allows the judges to deduct on two occasions. One was an absolutely

:32:45.:32:49.

spot on landing, for which there would be no deductions. This, chest

:32:50.:32:56.

right up, not a flicker. And the next, the two and a half, she did

:32:57.:33:01.

have a little step. And she probably will have had a bit of a deduction

:33:02.:33:04.

for legs apart. Perhaps 0.3 overall. Right up on the toes, on the spins.

:33:05.:33:19.

Makes it a much more interesting and varied final when you see the

:33:20.:33:20.

different styles. Absolutely. Shows you the different facets of

:33:21.:33:28.

the floor routine. Really does sell it through the

:33:29.:33:39.

choreography, the grace and elegance. And there's quite a lot of

:33:40.:33:48.

marks given for choreography. Give yourself a round of applause.

:33:49.:33:56.

Third-highest qualifier coming into this women's four final. -- floor

:33:57.:34:22.

final. One of the success stories of this Championships, one of the

:34:23.:34:26.

emerging gymnasts. A big tumble. Double Dumble. -- double double.

:34:27.:34:37.

And though we are, the full twist and the double back. Two hugely

:34:38.:34:43.

difficult tumbles. Showing splits really beautifully in

:34:44.:34:49.

the leaps. Moves matching the music. Full in

:34:50.:35:10.

pike this time. Turns straight into a tumble. Big

:35:11.:35:40.

double tuck, just a little hop to finish. Very efficient. Didn't give

:35:41.:35:47.

very much away at all. Well, she's looking for a score... 14.1 to join

:35:48.:36:01.

Wevers in third. She is going to have to be up in the high 14s to

:36:02.:36:07.

hang onto a medal. She has good tumbling, not exceptional, good

:36:08.:36:12.

leaps, not exceptional, but she does marry the two together quite nicely.

:36:13.:36:21.

Good shapes in the air, knees tucked together, the double double. The

:36:22.:36:27.

floor is together, the double double. The

:36:28.:36:33.

are now starting to manage to really use the springs well. We are seeing

:36:34.:36:40.

some truly exceptional tumbling. See how quickly they get off their hands

:36:41.:36:43.

and up into the twisting somersaults and double backs. It's

:36:44.:36:47.

and up into the twisting interesting, seeing her landing, she

:36:48.:36:51.

is putting one leg down ahead of the other, because she had a really bad

:36:52.:36:56.

knee a few years ago and took almost a year off. Quite deliberate. Now

:36:57.:37:02.

there will be a deduction for it, but probably 0.1, and she is not

:37:03.:37:06.

actually stepping, so she is probably living with that deduction.

:37:07.:37:15.

Chest up, so well. Old upright. -- bolt upright.

:37:16.:37:26.

She'd be happy to see first and second, USA. That is the situation

:37:27.:37:35.

at the moment, Chris. 15 scored. Wow, I tell you what, that is going

:37:36.:37:39.

to be a tough scored to be for second. Afanaseva is next up, the

:37:40.:37:48.

fourth highest qualifier. Claudia Fragapane will be after her, and

:37:49.:37:52.

then Ellie Downie and Yang from China. Still a lot of gymnastics in

:37:53.:37:59.

this women's floor final. This gymnast knows what it feels like to

:38:00.:38:04.

be world champion on this piece of apparatus. Current European gold

:38:05.:38:09.

medallist. The world champion in 2011 starts with a very difficult

:38:10.:38:15.

jump. Beautifully flighted double straight, just a pace.

:38:16.:38:23.

She stands on two feet... Gymnasts are only allowed one tumble from two

:38:24.:38:39.

feet, but what a Campbell it is, whip into a triple twist. -- what a

:38:40.:38:41.

tumble. That tumble off one foot. Very nice

:38:42.:38:57.

little jump afterwards. Quite a mature performance. Left

:38:58.:39:31.

something in the locker for the final tumble. Well, the heat is on,

:39:32.:39:38.

and what a graceful battle this is proving to be. A lovely mix there.

:39:39.:39:44.

Everything in balance, under control. Some spectacular work, some

:39:45.:39:52.

grace and elegance. Lovely. The powers that be in international

:39:53.:39:55.

gymnastics have very much been trying to find a formula to bring

:39:56.:40:00.

back more emphasis on the dance and the performance side. And I would

:40:01.:40:04.

say, so far, we are seeing that from this final.

:40:05.:40:09.

This is that tumble, the two whips, flip, triple twist. So accurate.

:40:10.:40:26.

Just a little cross-legged. The judges will have a 10th deduction

:40:27.:40:35.

for that. But a really beautiful floor routine.

:40:36.:40:56.

Lovely hi double pike. Confidently landed.

:40:57.:41:09.

15.1! Well, she has knocked Maggie Nichols off the silver medal at the

:41:10.:41:36.

moment, but she is still in with a chance of bronze. Goodness me, what

:41:37.:41:42.

an upset from the former world champion. She has split the two

:41:43.:41:48.

gymnasts from the USA. The next gymnast to go is Claudia Fragapane

:41:49.:41:52.

from Great Britain. She took Commonwealth gold here in the Hydro

:41:53.:41:59.

Arena. She does have a difficulty score of 6.3. She absolutely knows

:42:00.:42:03.

she has to be faultless today. A big first tumble, double straight

:42:04.:42:09.

with full. Wow, what a landing. Unusual butterfly into the corner.

:42:10.:43:00.

Another very difficult tumble. Triple twist, really does well.

:43:01.:43:13.

The big final tumble, double straight! Oh, she stepped out, what

:43:14.:43:25.

a shame. Well, she finishes with a spin, and

:43:26.:43:36.

what a World Championships it has been for Claudia Fragapane.

:43:37.:43:42.

Fantastic performance. Normally would be a winning performance, but

:43:43.:43:45.

we have seen such wonderful work already. Faultless work. 15 needed

:43:46.:43:57.

to share bronze at this stage. It is a big ask, but at least the brakes

:43:58.:44:04.

were working! It is a big ask. She is greeted by her coach. Claudia,

:44:05.:44:12.

from Bristol Walks gymnastics. Look at this, high, just a bit too much

:44:13.:44:18.

energy but didn't she do well to bring it back?

:44:19.:44:28.

It is difficult for the gymnasts when they've come in cold to this

:44:29.:44:37.

Arena. She did really well. Four hugely difficult tumbles. Just gave

:44:38.:44:43.

this a tiny bit too much. Won't be a huge deduction but it will be a

:44:44.:44:51.

point one. She's got such power and joy and exuberance in the

:44:52.:45:02.

performance. Takes an age, drifts to the floor.

:45:03.:45:20.

The way she presents it. Beautiful. He's done hugely well. 14.466 for

:45:21.:45:28.

Claudia Fragapane. She's in Listen to the roar as Ellie Downie

:45:29.:45:47.

is introduced to the crowd. CHEERING. I'm sure it won't have

:46:28.:46:42.

Arabian. What a controlled finish. Confidently throw the leaps. Sh.

:46:43.:46:46.

Confidently throw the leaps. -- through the leaps. Two -and-a-half

:46:47.:46:50.

twists into a front somersault. Just this final tumble. It's

:46:51.:47:07.

full of energy, full of verve. Double pike. Very good. A big final

:47:08.:47:22.

leap. What a performance from Ellie Downie throughout this

:47:23.:47:27.

championships. She really didn't giver anything away then. 15 is the

:47:28.:47:35.

score. That's what she's hoping for to get a medal. Big, accurate

:47:36.:47:47.

tumbling. Really accurate tumbling. Becky from Nottinghamshire

:47:48.:47:53.

gymnastics club. She doesn't have all the star value. 6 in difficulty

:47:54.:47:58.

but what she is down on difficulty she made up with for her

:47:59.:48:03.

performance. It was really clean. Should and she obviously enjoyed it

:48:04.:48:09.

as well. So many lovely touches. This is incredibly impressive. I've

:48:10.:48:17.

seen it somewhere before, Chris. Certainly mid to high 14s. Ellie is

:48:18.:48:25.

a really powerful, spatially aware gymnast. To be able to come out at

:48:26.:48:31.

this huge double pike Arabian and meet the floor. Exactly that. She

:48:32.:48:36.

knew exactly where the floor was. She

:48:37.:48:49.

knew exactly where the floor was. You get extra marks for the leap

:48:50.:48:51.

out. 0.1 extra, and You get extra marks for the leap

:48:52.:48:57.

for the landing either. We don't want to rush the judges here, do we

:48:58.:49:06.

for the landing either. We don't Chris? Absolutely not. Whatever

:49:07.:49:07.

happens here, she's Chris? Absolutely not. Whatever

:49:08.:49:11.

achieved what she came for. They're off to Rio. They've made history as

:49:12.:49:17.

a team. And she was a very big part of that. 14.733. What a score in

:49:18.:49:31.

this company. Brilliant. So the last gymnast in this women's floor final

:49:32.:49:43.

at the world championships, a late entrant into this final, ranked in

:49:44.:49:48.

11th, but be prepared to be entertained. Unusual tumbling. Also

:49:49.:49:56.

very difficult. Can these twists, one, two, three-and-a-half into a

:49:57.:50:01.

punch front. Worth just as much as the full twisting double straight.

:50:02.:50:10.

And this is another very complex and big tumble. One-and-a-half, she

:50:11.:50:17.

walks out of it. Straight into triple twist and punch front

:50:18.:50:29.

forward. Those spins were fast enough and controlled.

:50:30.:50:41.

This time two-and-a-half into the front half turn. The young gymnast,

:50:42.:50:52.

19 years old. She's really improved with every performance we've seen

:50:53.:50:59.

from her. We haven't had a double rotation yet. Must have a double

:51:00.:51:05.

tuck, double pike. She does, lifts the chest confidently. Spin to

:51:06.:51:14.

finish. APPLAUSE. Very efficient. Exciting

:51:15.:51:21.

too. Lovely floor exercise. So light, the way she just danced her

:51:22.:51:28.

way around the floor area and then this power comes from somewhere.

:51:29.:51:32.

She's so slight. Very slight. You think of her being tiny but she just

:51:33.:51:37.

hugged Simone Biles and they are the same size. You do think she's hugged

:51:38.:51:45.

Claudia and she'll be taller. Yes! So she's slight but she's got

:51:46.:51:57.

enormous power. If anybody is interested, she's 4'7" inches tall.

:51:58.:52:03.

Just a shade shorter than me. She can twist really well. This is a

:52:04.:52:09.

clever routine. Triple twist and immediate punch front, so there's no

:52:10.:52:14.

landing deductions. That's the secret here for the scores. Get rid

:52:15.:52:17.

of the deductions and add the difficulty in. A bit of an

:52:18.:52:24.

unorthodox arm position in the spin. The ballet teachers would rather the

:52:25.:52:28.

arms were up. Did you notice her eyes were closed as well? Were they?

:52:29.:52:34.

So she definitely wasn't spotting that spin. Two-and-a-half. She

:52:35.:52:37.

spotted over the shoulder for the landing there. Seems to fail to

:52:38.:52:44.

present a bit at the end of her tumbles. You are a bit surprised

:52:45.:52:48.

that she landed them. The only thing lacking is the confidence in

:52:49.:52:53.

presentation. I would agree. And it is strange music for a slight

:52:54.:53:02.

gymnast. But in terms of wonderful tumbling and few execution faults,

:53:03.:53:06.

it's all there. Is it good enough for a medal? The target is 15. She

:53:07.:53:16.

was fourth in the all-around. It won't be good enough to beat Simone

:53:17.:53:21.

Biles, who is waiting for confirmation she is ten-times world

:53:22.:53:23.

champion. The British girls have worked

:53:24.:53:48.

fantastically on all pieces. . It's been a tremendous championships for

:53:49.:53:52.

them. We've spent quite a bit of time waiting for judges throughout

:53:53.:53:56.

this competition, which means there a quite a hefty overrun, so we won't

:53:57.:54:00.

have time to finish the entire high bar competition which is coming up

:54:01.:54:03.

shortly. But for continued coverage of that, if you go to the website

:54:04.:54:09.

you will be able to see uninterrupted coverage all the way

:54:10.:54:15.

to the end of the medals ceremonies. 14.933 for Chunsong Shang. Just

:54:16.:54:20.

outside of the medals but that's confirmation that Simone Biles is

:54:21.:54:27.

the world champion on floor, and ten-times world champion! Kseniia

:54:28.:54:39.

Afanaseva for Russia takes the silver, former champion in 2011.

:54:40.:54:43.

There has been an inquiry put in from the Chinese. At the moment

:54:44.:54:47.

Maggie Nichols has the bronze medal, but we may just have to wait a

:54:48.:54:57.

moment. Chunsong Shang currently is tying in that fourth medal place

:54:58.:55:03.

with Sae Miyakawa, the first Japanese gymnast up in this final.

:55:04.:55:06.

Celebrations haven't started just yet. We are just waiting. This will

:55:07.:55:11.

be on the difficulty score again. Yes, you can only protest on the

:55:12.:55:17.

difficulty score, the D score. So each coach and gymnast goes into the

:55:18.:55:21.

competition knowing what they expect to be awarded. They obviously

:55:22.:55:30.

expected a 6.5 or a 6.6 instead of a 6.4, which is what they've got. And

:55:31.:55:37.

she is scoring 14.933. Third place is 15.000, so 0.1 would do it, take

:55:38.:55:43.

her above, and would knock Maggie Nichols out of the medals, so a

:55:44.:55:54.

tentative wait for Chunsong Shang and Maggie Nichols. Her

:55:55.:55:59.

qualification difficulty was 6.4, so she must have thought she increased

:56:00.:56:04.

something. You can see the judges in their little booths. They are

:56:05.:56:08.

sitting apart in booths at eyelevel with the floor area. Will it be one

and three USA or one and three USA, China. Actually hang on a minute, if

:56:21.:56:27.

it is 0.1 it will go up. No, it's been rejected. That's it, the

:56:28.:56:35.

inquiry is over. There's your champion, Simone Biles. Kseniia

:56:36.:56:41.

Afanaseva takes silver and Maggie Nichols for the USA gets bronze here

:56:42.:56:47.

in this women's world floor final. Ellie Downie finishes in sixth.

:56:48.:56:52.

Claudia Fragapane for Great Britain in seventh. We are overrunning here

:56:53.:57:00.

at the World Championships, so we are going to have to cut our

coverage short here on BBC Two before the end of the men's high bar

:57:04.:57:08.

final. If you would like to watch continued coverage of these World

:57:09.:57:12.

Championships and go to the BBC Sport website, where you can join us

:57:13.:57:17.

on the dismount until the end of the medals ceremonies. Mitch, let's now

:57:18.:57:29.

turn our attention to the men's high bar final. This is an event that's

:57:30.:57:35.

been revolutionised. It is all to do with the man that we are going to

:57:36.:57:41.

see here, back in 2004, the Athens Olympics. This is Nemov. I remember

:57:42.:57:50.

this routine so well. Count the release's. In those days, you didn't

:57:51.:57:56.

get credit the more difficulty you did. Unbelievable. And all of this

:57:57.:58:11.

courage and everything, he is just showing here courage in bucket

:58:12.:58:18.

loads. He said goodbye to the perfect 10 here. A Canadian guy was

:58:19.:58:22.

working on a new system and this gave him the opportunity. It would

:58:23.:58:37.

reward the more difficult stuff. And this man, the audience just went

:58:38.:58:42.

into uproar and Alexsei had to go back on the podium and say, calm

:58:43.:58:46.

down, calm down, the competition must go on. It was unbelievable. And

:58:47.:58:50.

down, calm down, the competition Dan, we are going to bring you in,

:58:51.:58:54.

because for you as a concern British gymnast working on high bar routines

:58:55.:59:01.

as well, these days how is courage awarded? You get a lot of courage

:59:02.:59:07.

rewarded now by connecting the big res leases such as the coverages,

:59:08.:59:17.

double somersaults to catch, and then to handstand and connecting

:59:18.:59:21.

that with a releasing catch. The gymnasts are being introduced behind

:59:22.:59:25.

you as you are talking, but from a gymnast's perspective how do you

:59:26.:59:29.

approach high bar? Do you love it or are you terrified? I absolutely love

:59:30.:59:34.

high bar. You get such a big adrenaline rush even when training

:59:35.:59:37.

over a foam it. I love to try anything and everything on the high

:59:38.:59:39.

bar to see what I can do. Danell anything and everything on the high

:59:40.:59:44.

Leyva is just being introduced. He certainly knows how to release and

:59:45.:59:48.

catch. He's the second of the American gymnasts in this final.

:59:49.:59:50.

Christopher Brooks went ahead of him. We are going to have Kohei

:59:51.:00:00.

Uchimura, he is about to come out. We've seen him have problems on the

:00:01.:00:04.

high bar but managed to compose himself for that all-around title.

:00:05.:00:06.

high bar but managed to compose What a high bar routine he put in

:00:07.:00:10.

there. Definitely. I think we are going to see him up the start value

:00:11.:00:15.

even more today. I've seen him do connection with the releasing

:00:16.:00:19.

catches in training. He did qualify with a second highest score. We'll

:00:20.:00:24.

keep a look out on that difficulty scoreboard, because he posted a 7.1

:00:25.:00:29.

and he played it safe in the auld around. I think he did a 6.5. He

:00:30.:00:34.

wanted to make sure of that all-around medal. The releasing

:00:35.:00:38.

catch, he missed that in the all-around. He knew what he had to

:00:39.:00:42.

do, knew what he had to score and he knew he could score high enough to

:00:43.:00:44.

win. We've had just knew he could score high enough to

:00:45.:00:51.

gymnast introduced to the crowd, the third highest qualifier. And we love

:00:52.:00:56.

this lad. Manrique Larduet. Again another final for him. What an all

:00:57.:01:00.

round gymnast. This World

:01:01.:01:08.

amazing for him, he was This World

:01:09.:01:15.

the P bars, he could up his start This World

:01:16.:01:23.

wonderful way to wrap up a World Championships. Hegi from

:01:24.:01:25.

Switzerland, the eighth highest qualifier, just outside the medals

:01:26.:01:29.

in the European Championships. What a word on this lad, he is a master.

:01:30.:01:41.

Hambuchen has been around for a long time, he was someone I was always

:01:42.:01:46.

trying to beat. His high bar routine is unbelievable and I am excited to

:01:47.:01:51.

watch him. He did have a few final placings, but he has dropped out.

:01:52.:01:56.

Beth, you heard he has not been so well. He was supposed to be in the

:01:57.:02:00.

all-around final but he decided he was not fit enough because of

:02:01.:02:04.

illness, so he pulled out and has had two days to recover and get

:02:05.:02:08.

fully fit. I think he knew that his medal chances were in the high bar

:02:09.:02:14.

rather than the all-around. We will be sitting on the edge of our seats

:02:15.:02:18.

for this one. Full coverage of this final will continue on the BBC Sport

:02:19.:02:25.

website, because we won't have time to see it all on BBC Two. Coverage

:02:26.:02:30.

all the way up to the end of the medal ceremony. Mitch, the bar is

:02:31.:02:38.

chalked up, and this is the first gymnast, Bretschneider from Germany.

:02:39.:02:42.

He has been in one or two world finals. This is the final... If

:02:43.:02:50.

everybody is not around the telly at the moment, call them in for the

:02:51.:02:53.

first few minutes. You have to witness this. And make sure you have

:02:54.:03:01.

a strong heart. Because this man, well, not invented, but the first to

:03:02.:03:07.

do the double twist. It is an amazing move. Whether he will put it

:03:08.:03:15.

into this final, we don't know. But what a gymnast. A little bit

:03:16.:03:26.

scrappy. But so risky. A bit of scruffiness, some entertaining

:03:27.:03:26.

stuff! And he caught the Cassina. The

:03:27.:03:47.

Kovacs start with extra twist was fantastic.

:03:48.:03:52.

The pirouettes give away the scores. A little bit late with the half

:03:53.:03:59.

turn. This man has so much to offer. In terms of difficulty.

:04:00.:04:03.

He has given a bit away, what he really needs to do is to nail the

:04:04.:04:19.

dismount. He didn't stick it. A shame. Very

:04:20.:04:32.

difficult, very ambitious am a but he will be painfully deducted. It

:04:33.:04:39.

was a courageous display. It certainly was. Look at this first

:04:40.:04:41.

move. The mind boggles at how, after

:04:42.:04:51.

twisting and somersaulting over the bar, you can stick your hands out,

:04:52.:04:54.

grab it and carry on going. Absolutely. Two twists, a catch,

:04:55.:05:03.

just an amazing skill. A long time coming in competition, but he's done

:05:04.:05:10.

it. There is the conventional, if you can say so, Cassina. The full

:05:11.:05:17.

twist, but to do a release with double is incredible stuff. One,,

:05:18.:05:25.

catch. As you say, Matt, to gather your scrambled brains to produce the

:05:26.:05:28.

performance... A little shuffle across. It all

:05:29.:05:34.

takes marks away. And he needed to stick this dismount

:05:35.:05:52.

because he was expensive on the bar in terms of tenths, but it wasn't to

:05:53.:05:59.

be. Almost a mark, but I would say 0.8 anyway.

:06:00.:06:06.

14.966. Difficulty of 7.2. Yes, huge difficulty, but that's the task, to

:06:07.:06:21.

marry the two. Christopher Brooks. A very ambitious routine.

:06:22.:06:32.

Full turn into the standard... And he is off! What a pity. What a pity.

:06:33.:06:50.

He had the awareness to roll out. I was going to say, a good job that he

:06:51.:06:58.

was aware of where he was. Just got his head under. Did very well. This

:06:59.:07:05.

is an amazing, ambitious... The second hand, the right hand, did not

:07:06.:07:07.

get on firmly enough. Tkachev half turn, the third release

:07:08.:07:22.

attempted with half turn. Very nicely done. Such a pity, but

:07:23.:07:42.

such awareness. To survive that fault. We have seen a few false on

:07:43.:07:49.

that half turn action. -- a few falls. It's absolutely crucial.

:07:50.:07:58.

It's what did for Max Whitlock in the all-around competition. That's

:07:59.:08:06.

right. You have to get right over. It's no good just catching with the

:08:07.:08:13.

fingers. He seemed to be on, but he knows he is off at that point. You

:08:14.:08:16.

could see the bar twang there. Lovely. That time he made no

:08:17.:08:31.

mistake. Definitely made sure he got hold of that time, didn't he? The

:08:32.:08:34.

big wind-up. Lovely dismount. Superb. Just struggled to bring it

:08:35.:08:48.

under control. Full twist. Double twist. Big stuff.

:08:49.:09:00.

Everything was on, man... It was going to be a freaking sweet

:09:01.:09:07.

routine. He thought it was going to be a sweet routine, but it turned

:09:08.:09:14.

sour. 6.4 difficulty. It would have been a 6.9. Let's go, Leyva!

:09:15.:09:28.

The way the marks have been going, a big score on high bar.

:09:29.:09:39.

Has got enough, if he does it again, to challenge for a medal. Thrilling

:09:40.:09:43.

to watch, Leyva. Clean execution, smooth rhythm. A

:09:44.:09:52.

big release. The Kolman, the Kovacs with full

:09:53.:09:59.

turn. His father encouraging him, and look

:10:00.:10:37.

at that landing! What a performance! Look at that Ema! -- look at dad!

:10:38.:10:46.

at that landing! What a performance! What a performance from them both!

:10:47.:10:53.

That was great. Dad has not finished his routine yet!

:10:54.:11:02.

Oh, dear. What a superb high bar routine from

:11:03.:11:20.

Leyva. And he gives us a kiss. He really uses the wind-up well,

:11:21.:11:24.

that's lovely, the double straight, arms fled to the side.

:11:25.:11:30.

Making sure he is giving all the help

:11:31.:11:38.

Arms out, really, and then the arms back in to

:11:39.:11:44.

catch. Showing the judges, look, this is how confident I am.

:11:45.:11:49.

Unfortunately caught it with slightly bent arms, which they will

:11:50.:11:54.

deduct for. He has flair all the way through. He does. But he is the

:11:55.:12:00.

of gymnast, in the all-around competition, it didn't go right and

:12:01.:12:05.

so nothing went right. But when it's going right, it's wonderful. Just

:12:06.:12:13.

like that dismount. 15.7! 7.3 difficulty.

:12:14.:12:25.

Well, I have to tell you, that is the biggest score we have seen on

:12:26.:12:32.

high bar for this Championships. There are still five gymnasts to go

:12:33.:12:36.

in this high bar final. We are going to run out of time here, so if you

:12:37.:12:41.

would like to see them, go to the BBC Sport website. Continuous

:12:42.:12:46.

coverage all the way to the end of the medal ceremony. So please do

:12:47.:12:50.

join us there. Otherwise we are going to run into the rugby league,

:12:51.:12:55.

England versus New Zealand, coming up shortly. A quick final thought on

:12:56.:12:59.

your favourite moment of these World Championships, Dan. Definitely max

:13:00.:13:03.

winning the gold on the pommel horse. It was crazy under that kind

:13:04.:13:07.

of pressure, seeing Louis Smith had put up 16. Max was special but the

:13:08.:13:14.

team medals for both the men and women for Britain, a history making

:13:15.:13:18.

moment for British gymnastics. Listen, I can't tell you what a

:13:19.:13:22.

World Championships it has been. To be here and witnessed it has been

:13:23.:13:27.

the most special thing. We knew that this World Championships was going

:13:28.:13:31.

to be good, but it has been more than great for Britain. From all of

:13:32.:13:34.

the team here, thanks for watching, we hope that you have been inspired

:13:35.:13:39.

as much as we have. Thanks for watching, goodbye.

:13:40.:13:53.

# It's just gravitation. # We are unstoppable. That is a

:13:54.:14:05.

bronze medal! Max Whitlock is the pommel horse
