Men’s Floor is stupider than ever now. Who needs to see so many variations of twist?

No double somersaults.

A great success story for the Phillipines, Caloy qualified to both Vault and Floor finals.

I’m really hoping she gets to Finals this year.

British Championships – Men’s Finals

Men’s Gymnastics Perspective has a superb wrap-up. By far the best post I’ve seen (of many) on the competition.

A few highlights from their detailed report:

The British is a slightly unique format, in that Senior apparatus titles are handed out on the Saturday to the top scorers on each event, but the real final is on the following day, when the top 8 from all age groups fight it out in a traditional apparatus final to become the Masters champion.

After day 1, the Senior apparatus champions were not a great surprise, based on recent form:

Floor: Max Whitlock 15.25
Pommel Horse: Max Whitlock 15.85
Rings: Daniel Purvis 15.0
Vault: Kristian Thomas 14.875
Parallel Bars: Daniel Keatings 15.45
Horizontal Bar: Sam Oldham 14.6

The main talking point of Saturday was the tightly spaced 1-2-3 of Max Whitlock (15.85), Daniel Keatings (15.8) and Louis Smith (15.75) on Pommel Horse. … What a pleasure to have 3 world class pommel horse performers in the GB camp, competing at the top of their game in front of a packed venue!

The Masters format promised to deliver an interesting mix of Junior vs Senior. …

Day 2 – The Masters

Max Whitlock is a class apart in terms of start value, and only needed a clean performance to finish ahead of the rest of the field. His mix of multi-bonus complex twisting combinations and high value non-acrobatic elements (including his new spindle to air-flair) give him a 6.8 start which is well ahead of his British rivals.

Under-16 Champion Giarnni Regini-Moran was the only junior in this final, but his powerful tumbling was comfortably of senior standard. …

Pommel Horse
The strength in depth in British Pommel Horse is great to see. In this final, the bottom 5 of Wilson, Wise, Purvis, Watson, Hall all scored in the range 14.666 to 14.266. Many world gymnastics nations (USA, Germany anyone?) would love for their top level Pommels workers to be able to provide those scores! …

Daniel Keatings hit his “hard” routine (with Busnari) in a final! Daniel’s execution has always been immaculate, and this combined with the 7.2 start value gave him a 16.133 total

Ok, we admit it, GB has some way to go to become a nation recognised with any real depth on Rings. …

This final was one of the less exciting points of the weekend. …

Parallel Bars
Suddenly GB has a group of parallel bar workers capable of threatening for medals on the world stage. After Pommel Horse, this was the most anticipated final of the day …

Horizontal Bar
This is another apparatus where GB is getting stronger with each event. The trio of Kristian Thomas, Sam Oldham and Ashley Watson stood out here. They presented three very different, but equally exciting 6.5 start value routines. …

Ashley Watson was clearly disappointed not to be in the Parallel Bars final, and jumped up on the High Bar with a determined and aggressive demeanor. His routine construction is probably our favourite of these 3 …

What more to say about Daniel Keatings at this year’s British?

He was simply immaculate all weekend – excluding a fall on High Bar in the All Around – this was a flawless 2 days of competition. Hats off to anyone that can deliver 16+ scores in two finals on the same day! Suddenly we feel extremely positive about Europeans and Commonwealths prospects for Dan. Rio looks a real possibility …
