Whitlock – 16.500 Pommels

Aggressive single pommel Russians!

16.500 (D:7.4, E:9.1)

Click PLAY or watch his London Open Gold on YouTube.

Max Whitlock is one of a handful of guys who have the chance to defeat Kohei Uchimura for the first time since the 2008 Olympics.

Max won the London Open with 89.70. Will Banthorpe points out he got that score competing only a safe 2/1 twist Yurchenko, with a fall on H Bar and putting his hands down on dismount. If Max hits, he could be close.

No doubt Kohei has harder routines prepared, waiting for the day he needs them.

We’ve been waiting for decades to see this kind of skill. :-)

Orozco interview

John Orozco finished 2nd at P&G Championships.

It’s impossible not to cheer for John. He’s such a nice guy. So honest in an interview. John wears his heart on his sleeve.

John Orozco didn’t realize how close it was heading into his floor routine in the final rotation and was pleasantly surprised to find out he placed second. He talks about his relationship with Sam Mikulak …

Hryko – Pommels

The American Yoder missed in the final at the Youth Olympic Games. Opening the door for the Russian and this kid from Ukraine.

Jac Davies – 14.800 Pommels

I’d never heard of Welsh specialist Jac Davies. Before the Pommel Final at Commonwealth Games. He finished 4th behind … some other guys. :-)

Great swing.

Keatings – 16.058 Pommels

A God.

Pommel Final results
Keatings 16.058 (7.2 DV) SCO
Whitlock 15.966 (7.4 DV) ENG
Smith 14.966 ENG

Jac Davies WAL 14.800

@CordeliaGymFan notes the podium was a repeat of the British Championships Masters Final.

Easily the best Apparatus Final at Commonwealth Games.

No falls. Davies from Wales swings near as well as anyone in the world.

Note how many Pommel finalists are not wearing wrist wrap.

Whitlock, Keatings, Wilson

Consistently hitting the most difficult Pommel routine in the world.

Yurchenko triple twist.

Whitlock truly is a great gymnast.

Max Whitlock

1. Max Whitlock 90.631
2. Keatings 88.298
3. Nile Wilson 87.965

Purvis made mistakes today.

Scores were too high, I thought. Don’t expect those same numbers at Worlds.

I’m thrilled for Keatings. He aggressively nailed his final routine, H Bar.

I was very impressed with Nile Wilson, too. As is Max. :-)

Max Whitlock is age-21. Nile Wilson only age-18. The future looks bright for GBR. I’d rank them ahead of RUS for 2016.
