Many of the Juniors used that Felge to L-sit as a transition. No deduction for a skill in hang.

Floor results

Olympic Floor Champ Max Whitlock tumbled well. But fell on his fantastic Air Flair combination. Second reserve Oskar Kirmes (FIN) was excellent.  Andrew Smith (IRE) should have been there, but took some -0.3 deduction. (OB says Ireland)

R. DAVTYAN Artur (ARM) 14.500

Pommel results

Pommels will be a great final. Max didn’t hit his best routine. I thought he was way over-scored. The main story line will be whether or not any of these Pommel legends will be able to defeat some confident 19-year-old kid from Ireland. I’m betting on Rhys.

R. LANKIN Dmitrii (RUS) 14.633

Courtney tried his second new skill (Tulloch 2) and seems to have suffered very little deduction on it. I was surprised. If that “Victorian” position is counted then pretty much anyone who’s competed that skill should get credit.

Vault results

Dom nearly made the final with a fall on his first vault. He was that good.

Vault is throw and go. You never know. I’d bet on Igor to win. He seems most in control of his landings to me.

P Bar results

Nikita NAGORNYY was 3rd with a brilliant routine. But his two teammates scored even higher.

In fact I was thinking P Bars would be the worst final until Russia arrived. Last apparatus, last subdivision. Their lineup could challenge China and Japan.

H Bar results

Once again Horizontal Bar is a bit of a disappointment.

BRETSCHNEIDER was brilliant until falling on a relatively simple skill. DEURLOO missed.

Sounds like Epke is going to throw his HARD routine in the final. That’s going to be exciting.
