World Champs Dalaloyan, Xiao Rutoeng, Petrounias

Floor
1. Artur Dalaloyan (RUS) 14.9
2. Kenzo Shirai (JPN) 14.866
3. Carlos Yulo (PHI) 14.6

You could argue that Yul Moldauer (USA) 14.566 should have been Bronze.

Yulo is the biggest happy surprise of Worlds 2018. Congratulations Philippines. 🙂

Pommels
1. Xiao Rutoeng (CHN) 15.166 ***
2. Max Whitlock (GBR) 15.166 ***
3. lee Chih Kai (TPE) 14.966

Second ever Worlds medal for TPE.

Max hit 3/3 in Doha. He lost the tie break due to having lower E-score.

2. Arthur Zanetti (BRA) 15.100

Petrounias was doubtful to compete Worlds. He has shoulder surgery scheduled in 3 days.

Zanetti was fantastic. You might argue he was even better than Petrounias. There’s not much to separate the very best Ring men.

Men’s qualification highlights

FIG put together a highlights package of what happened day 2 qualifications.

Click PLAY or watch it on YouTube.

… or you could catch-up on by listening to GymCastic MAG day 2 – THE POMMEL-POCALYPSE

Median scores for all apparatus went up from Worlds 2017 to Worlds 2018. That’s expected over the quadrennial. … BUT median score on Pommels dropped 1.167. That’s no statistical fluke. There’s something wrong with that horse.
