World Cup Cottbus – Event Finals (day 1)

Uneven bars, vault (women), floor, pommel horse and rings (men) are done!

Once again, on www.turnier-der-meister.de you can read also in English a nice summary of the event.

The title in the women’s vault final went to Ariella Käslin from Switzerland. Kohei Uchimura from Japan secured himself the gold medal in the men’s floor final, Belgium’s Donna-Donny Truyens won on pommel horse and Yuri van Gelder (NED) on rings.

Watch the really nice, goldmedal-winning bar routine (including Tkatchev, Pak, Shaposhnikova, Jaeger, Tsukahara dismount – the summary on the official internet site tells something about a Gienger, but I can´t see it):

Or click here to watch the video from ThePenguin88 on YouTube!

Lieke Wevers had some bad form breaks – I haven´t seen this for a long time. But nevertheless she fought and finished her routine. Watch it on YouTube.

Yes, Yuri van Gelder defended his title! I really like him on the rings!

Interesting:

“Today also the judges were impressed, one element group in his routine got acknowledged where it wasn’t the case in yesterday’s qualification. This alone brought him two additional tenths in the D-score.”
