Zou Jingyuan’s 6.9 P Bars

Olympic champion Zou Jingyuan (CHN) did not need to add the extra difficulty to win his third World title on Parallel Bars. But with Olympic silver medallist Lukas Dauser (GER) applying pressure with a 15.500 …

“At first, I just wanted to stick with the original plan,” explained Zou, who upped his difficulty from his normal 6.5 set to one valued at 6.9. “I decided to perform the harder routine to challenge myself. …

16.166 was the highest score of the entire World Championships and left his competitors gaping in disbelief.

“To me, he’s like a God,” said Yulo, whose 15.366 earned bronze. …

Worlds ’22 Apparatus Final 2

Beam

Japan is THE up-and-coming team in the world right now.

I felt Skye Blakely and and Ou Yushan had the best routines — but Beam is an apparatus where you have to hit under pressure. The medal winners did that.

Ellie Black had zero falls or major errors over 4 Beam routines in Liverpool. In fact she had no falls or major errors on any apparatus in Qualification, Team Final, AA Final or either Apparatus Final. Truly she’s been the most consistent of the top gymnasts in the world.

Floor

Crowd went wild.

In the craziest Final, Jessica Gadirova won the Floor title. As did her GBR teammate Giarnni Regini-Moran in Men’s Floor.

This will be the most discussed podium as nobody understands exactly what the judges want in terms of artistry.

USA appealed Jade’s Floor score — as many teams did for many athletes — but this time the score went DOWN 0.1.

That can happen.

As a result, Jade went into a tie with Rebeca. This made pretty much everyone in the arena happy. 😀

Vault

Fantastic vaults to get on to this podium. It was one of the best finals in years. Only 1 fall over 16 super difficult vaults.

You beat, Yulo … you are GOOD. Congratulations to 30-year old Artur Davtyan. Two fantastic vaults.

P Bars – Zou Jingyuan

The man. The legend. The greatest of all time on Parallel Bars.

Arguably the greatest routine of all time on any apparatus.

H Bar

Superb Final. No falls. No drama. Just great Gymnastics.

Brody hit the best routine I’ve ever seen him do.

Brody Malone – World Champion. I like the sound of that.
