Pommel was the best final on day 1, I thought. Compare the Gold medalists.

POMMELS … a very strong Final!

If FIG wants greater audience appeal for the sport, have the Awards ceremony follow the actual athletic contest. How many general fans want to sit through all these National anthems?

1. Arthur Zanetti BRA 15.725
2. Donnell Whittenburg USA 15.525
2. Manrique Larduet CUB 15.45

1. Rachel Gowey USA 14.725

Pommels – Kaya defeats Kameyama

1. Kazuma Kaya 6.9/15.650
2. Kohei Kameyama 7.2/15.550
3. Takuto Kakitani 6.8/15.350

Kohei Kameyama is the 2013 World Pommel Champion. But he was beaten at Japanese Championships by this excited young guy.

Kameyama is still the stronger Pommel man, in my opinion. But Kaya was named to Japan’s 2015 World’s Team.
