Will the last two gold medals also go to Biles?

12.10.2019 20:50 Uhr

Sunday 13 October – On this last day of the Gymnastics World Championships 2019, the medals will be awarded for the women’s floor and beams and for the men’s jump, bars and high bar.


Defending champion: Ri Se-gwang (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea)

In the men’s vault finals, the scores from the qualifiers are closely matched. The Korean Yang Hakeson lead the field with 14.933 points. Dominick Cunningham, eighth-placed, is just 0.367 points away from the top ranking. The Russian Artur Dalaloyan, who won the silver medal on this apparatus last year, qualified for the final on 2nd place.


Defending champion: Simone Biles (United States of America)

The two women’s finals are dominated by Simone Biles. Her main rivals on beam are Li Shijia and Liu Tingting from China, who qualified 2nd and 3rd. Although the Chinese athletes show the highest difficulties, the decisive factor after several falls in the team final is whether they can stay on the apparatus. Sarah Voss of Germany qualified for the beam final on 6th place.


Defending champion: Zou Jingyuan (People’s Republic of China)

The men’s bar final will be a particularly exciting highlight of the day. The defending champion fell on this event in qualifications, leaving German gymnast Lukas Dauser in first place, with the rest of the field very close behind. The Ukrainian Petro Pakhniuk joins with the same number of points in second place and Joe Fraser from Great Britain took 3rd place with a gap of just 0.033 points. Every smallest mistake will decide victory and defeat.


Defending champion: Simone Biles (United States of America)

For one last time at these world Championships, Simone Biles will show her triple double on the floor. Favourite after Biles is her teammate Sunisa Lee and bronze medal winner at this year’s European Championships, Angelina Melnikova from Russia. Last year, Melnikova just missed the podium. Melanie De Jesus dos Santos from France is also in the final and hopes for a medal.


Defending champion: Epke Zonderland (Netherlands)

The last final of the day will be held on high bar. The defending champion fell on this event in qualifications so did not make this final. The favourite is Chia-Hung Tang from Chinese Taipei, with Samuel Mikulak from the USA and Tin Srbic of Croatia close behind. Mikulak will be the only representative from the horizontal bar at the last World Championships, where he won the bronze medal.

Competition will start at 1 pm.
