Apparatus Finals Results … and Simone

First, Simone went 16/16. She’s never been better.

A year ago she was not happy. Here’s how she’s feeling today.

Beam
1. Biles Simone USA USA 15.066 = 8.666 + 6.400
2. Liu Tingting CHN 14.433 = 8.233 + 6.200
3. Li Shijia CHN CHN 14.300 = 8.300 + 6.100 | Pen. : -0.1 overtime

Kara Eaker was 4th with a good routine. She’s fantastic, but may need to change it up to rely less on Ring leaps and connections for difficulty.

Floor
1. Biles Simone USA 15.133 = 8.533 + 6.700 | Pen. : -0.1
2. Lee Sunisa USA 14.133 = 8.433 + 5.700
3. Melnikova Angelina RUS 14.066 = 8.266 + 5.800

Flavia or Melanie were close. I’d not been upset if either had been Bronze.

My favourite routine was Brooklyn Moors. Best she’d done all week. Added a jump to her Podkopayeva.  Landing deductions on the last pass were the biggest problem.

Vault
1. NAGORNYY Nikita RUS 14.966
2. DALALOYAN Artur RUS 14.933
3. RADIVILOV Igor UKR 14.749

38-year-old Marian DRAGULESCU looked like a kid, sticking his eponymous vault.

Dom CUNNINGHAM had the best form / control overall. Did not do his Yurchenko triple twist this time.

I’m just happy there were no serious injuries.

P Bars
1. Fraser Joe GBR 15.000 = 8.400 + 6.600
2. Onder Ahmet TUR 14.983 = 8.783 + 6.200
3. Kaya Kazuma JPN 14.966 = 8.666 + 6.300

It was a virtual tie for the next two. Personally I had Ferhat for a medal.

4. Xiao Ruoteng CHN 14.966 = 8.566 + 6.400
5. Arican Ferhat TUR 4.900 = 8.400 + 6.500

H Bar
1. Mariano Arthur BRA 14.900 = 8.600 + 6.300
2. Srbic Tin CRO 14.666 = 8.466 + 6.200
3. Dalaloyan Artur RUS 14.533 = 8.433 + 6.100

Tin up first. Set the Bar high with his short, difficult to deduct routine.

Tang Chia-Hung does the best and highest Hecht skills, but came off close to the end of the set. He had qualified #1. Cheer him in the Olympics as Taiwan qualified a full team.

Sam went for the HARD routine. Good decision, I think. But he had deducations. Hashimoto Daiki has the best form – Uchimura good.

Arthur Mariano is World Champion! As is Joe Fraser.
