Word guys: Regeni Moran surprises everyone
At the men’s floor event, spectators in Liverpool cheered a local gymnast’s victory. Britain’s Gyarni Regeni Moran has been rewarded for his flawless workout with 14,533 points and a surprising title in the World Championships. All-around world champion Daiki Hashimoto was second, only 0.033 points off the gold medal. The podium was completed by compatriot Hashimoto Ryosuke Doi (14.266). Carlos Idril Yolo was the top candidate for seventh place empty-handed. The 2019 world champion fell on his first jump.
Jump, women: double win for the United States
The USA celebrated a double victory in the women’s vaulting final. Jade Carey took the world title, and fellow countryman Jordan Chiles took the silver. Kari, who easily matched Chusovitina and Yurchenko with a double twist, trailed her teammate by 0.166 points. Colin DeVillard (FRA) takes bronze at the World Championships.
Pommel horse, guys: The old man can still do it
The best qualifier on the pommel horse can’t be defeated in the final either. Ireland’s Rhys McClingan showed an impeccable routine and won the world title in a superior fashion. Today’s surprise came from second place holder Ahmed Abu Al-Saud. The Jordanian, who had never reached the World Cup final before, won the silver medal. Harutyun Merdinian, 38, of Armenia, took the bronze.
Uneven penises, for women: China Xiaoyuan succeeded again
With a dream total of 14.966 points, Wei Xiaoyuan had successfully defended the world title since the previous year. Behind the Chinese, Chili’s Jones (USA) took the silver. A slight disappointment ignited by Nina Druel. Despite the successful exercise, the Olympic champion had to settle for third place.
Men’s Rings: Aseel World Champion for the first time
After the silver medal in the European Championships in Munich, it was enough for Adam Aseel to win the gold in Liverpool. The Egyptian-born, who has represented Turkey since 2020, performed gymnastics on the rings for the world title. Zou Jingyuan (CHN) and Courtney Tulloch (GBR) completed the podium.
