7. Illia Kovtun, Ukraine, 82.365
8. Carlos Yulo, Philippines, 82.098

9:48 pm. Tanigawa Wataru JPN HB: Cassina gets around well, then a layout Tkachev to straddle Tkachev, good work there, German giants, gets a little stuck into the stalder but nothing severe, Tak, Tak half a bit late, stalder, full-twisting double layout with a big hop forward. 13.600 (5.7, 7.900)

9:46 pm. Brody Malone USA FX: Front full to piked double front, solid. 2.5 to front full, little hop out of it. Double double with a hop back. Japanese press for his strength element. Front double full to front layout, very nice! Clean double full, little bounce. Triple full with a hop back. 14.133 (5.7, 8.433)

9:44 pm. Hashimoto Daiki JPN HB: Cassina, nice stretch in the air, Kolman is also strong, layout Tkachev to straddle, maybe a little close there, he needs over a 14 to get the win, hits all of his elements after that including a stuck double double layout dismount! 14.433 (6.0, 8.433)

9:43 pm. Casimir Schmidt NED FX: 14.000 (5.8, 8.200) – nice score!

Krisztian Balazs HUN SR: 12.866 (4.4, 8.466)

9:41 pm. Carlos Yulo PHI HB: Hit the swing work at the beginning, just like Hong he went SUPER high on the Kolman, doesn’t come off but is too close to swing out of it, has to pause on the bar. Gets the rest, including a double double layout dismount with a hop. 11.900 (5.0, 6.900)

9:40 pm. Caio Souza BRA FX: 13.766 (5.6, 8.266, -0.1)

9:37 pm. Joe Fraser GBR HB: Off on his Kolman. Landed hard on his left shoulder, but gives a thumbs up, he’s okay, just takes him a second. Looks at his grips like “I hate you.” Back on, gets the Cassina, Zou Li Min, hits the rest, lands the dismount, the roughest of days for him but glad to see him fight to the very end. 12.100 (5.0, 7.100)

Tang Chia-Hung TWN PB: 13.033 (5.0, 8.033)

Yumin Abbadini ITA PH: 13.666 (5.5, 8.166)

Luka van den Keybus BEL SR: 12.800 (4.3, 8.500)

9:35 pm. Jake Jarman GBR FX: Triple double layout, casual. Lands maybe a bit short. Triple double, tucked this time, stuck! 2.5 to front layout to front double full, awesome. Triple full side pass. Front full to randi, a little short but still solid. Ugh, then on the 3.5, he stumbles back a bit, thankfully saves it form a fall! 14.433 (6.7, 7.733)

9:33 pm. Zhang Boheng CHN HB: Was a little short on the first front full pirouette, got the Tak half right over the bar, layout Tkachev was good, then a Cassina, caught really close, bends his elbows, Kolman is much better, German giants, into a stalder, double double layout, tiny bounce! 14.433 (6.2, 8.233)

Diogo Soares BRA FX: 12.766 (5.3, 7.466)

9:32 pm. Lukas Dauser GER PH: 13.200 (5.4, 7.800)

Lorenzo Casali ITA SR: 13.100 (4.8, 8.300)

9:29 pm. Asher Hong USA HB: Front inbar, fun, Kolman goes a bit wild, gets the height but no distance, when he goes to catch, the bar is basically under his armpits, has no chance of grabbing it, fall. Sad! Does it again and gets it this time, Kovacs is huge, straddle Tkachev, German giants, kinda flies forward out of the double double layout dismount with a big lunge. 11.500 (5.1, 6.400)

9:23 pm. Jossimar Calvo COL PH: 10.400 (4.8, 5.600)

9:21 pm. Brody Malone USA HB: Mixed grip before the Zou Li Min, big Cassina, Kolman, layout Tkachev to straddle Tkachev to piked Tkachev, some elbow bend at the ver end, little adjustment on the blind change, Tak full is very close to vertical, slight adjustment out of it, blind full a little short, and nails the double double layout dismount. This was superb! 14.500 (6.3, 8.200)

9:19 pm. Hashimoto Daiki JPN PB: Really clean at the start, only very minor things in some handstands, huge straddle salto, swings right up to handstand, Bhavsar floated to the very end, very clean Tippelt, double front half landed with feet apart and a little shuffle to the side. 15.000 (6.1, 8.900)

I can hear that Brody Malone is on high bar in the background, lots of screaming.

Luka van den Keybus BEL PH: 10.566 (4.7, 5.866)

9:17 pm. Nestor Abad ESP FX: 13.800 (5.5, 8.300)

Casimir Schmidt NED HB: 13.000 (5.1, 7.900)

9:16 pm. Carlos Yulo PHI PB: Some beautiful pirouette work in the first half, his handstands are literal gold, front pike up to handstand was super fluid and clean, he is working this like it’s TEXTBOOK, Bhavsar, presses to handstand after, half turn before a superb Tippelt, double front half with the tiniest slide back. 15.166 (6.3, 8.866)

9:14 pm. Illia Kovtun UKR FX: Front full to double front, a bit cowboyed, hop forward. Piked double front with a big step OOB. 3.5 with a step forward. Good randi with a slight hop back. 2.5 to front layout, good landing. Great triple full to finish, feet apart but solid. 14.000 (6.1, 8.000, -0.1)

Caio Souza BRA HB: 14.133 (6.3, 7.833)

9:11 pm. Joe Fraser GBR PB: Oof, first pirouette went really wild and didn’t make it to handstand, gets a salto with a half turn, arches over on the next handstand and walks forward out of it, good transition to the single rail but then coming out of it he sits on the bar and comes off. He just looks exhausted, what a sad day for him. Back up, arches over a half turn, then slips and falls onto his back on the bars, looks like he maybe did something to his hand, steps back up to handstand, double front half had me TERRIFIED based on how that was going but he gets it around and lands it. 11.533 (6.0, 5.533)

9:10 pm. Gabriel Burtanete ROU PH: 10.166 (3.2, 6.966)

9:07 pm. Zhang Boheng CHN PB: Muscled on the transition to the single rail at the beginning but fixes it really fast. Arched over on a giant swing, and then came up short on the next handstand. Big straddle salto, Bhavsar up to L sit, presses up to handstand with no problems, Tippelt, some hip adjustments as he gets to handstand, double front half, chest down and a hop forward. 15.066 (6.4, 8.666)

Tang Chia-Hung TWN FX: 14.133 (5.5, 8.633)

9:06 pm. Asher Hong USA PB: Didn’t see this yet on the stream but the score is WOW! Going back to see it now. Really tight work at the begining, Bhavsar, turns halfway around before the Tippelt, that was lovely, BEAUTIFUL Makuts, Healy, one-arm pirouette, half turn had slight arch, and then a double front half, stuck! Okay, this was fab. 14.900 (6.0, 8.900)

9:04 pm. Jake Jarman GBR HB: Tak half is a little late, layout Tkachev with some hip bend, straddle Tkachev, blind change to front giant, Tak finishes late, all of his front giants are opening up a bit late actually, he does about four of them before the Endo, stalder, full-twisting double layout, clean and stuck! Lots of little things to take his E down but this was a great routine overall. 13.133 (4.8, 8.333)

9:02 pm. Lukas Dauser GER FX: Piked double front, mostly clean, a little seated, hop forward. Front double full to front layout is good. 2.5 to front full, tiniest hop. Layout side pass. I missed most of the next pass but think he ended with a tucked front full. Hit the triple full. 13.666 (5.3, 8.366)

Lorenzo Casali ITA PH: 12.833 (4.8, 8.033)

Diogo Soares BRA HB: 13.866 (5.5, 8.366)

9:01 pm. Tanigawa Wataru JPN PB: A little short on a half turn to handstand, walked a little out of the next as well, Bhavsar was really big and solid, Tippelt was very clean, gets the straddle salto, and a double front half with a slight hop back. 14.766 (6.3, 8.466)

Joel Plata ESP HB: 13.033 (5.1, 7.933)

9:00 pm. Sofus Heggemsnes NOR PH: Wasn’t typing but this was a good set! Not the most difficult but he did a great job getting through it, which I think you could say about the majority of his routines. 12.700 (4.6, 8.100)

8:58 pm. Krisztofer Meszaros HUN FX: 2.5 to tucked double front, a little buckled on the double double, hop forward. Randi is also a bit low in the knees, hop to the side. Front full, looked like he was gonna bail out of it but ended up getting a front tuck out. Next pass, I think a 1.5 to front full, and then a slightly short triple full to finish. 13.700 (5.8, 7.900) – still a very good score considering this was a little all over the place!

8:56 pm. With falls on both pommels and vault, Joe Fraser is currently down in 19th.

Really impressed with Jake Jarman’s overall competition today!

Gabriel Burtanete ROU FX: 13.100 (5.2, 8.000, -0.1)

8:44 pm. Carlos Yulo PHI VT: Piked handspring double front half, BEAUTIFUL in the air, but then lands it kind of back on his heels and he runs back out of it a bit wildly, sitting it ultimately. 14.166 (6.0, 8.166)

8:42 pm. Joe Fraser GBR VT: Ugh, sits the handspring double front. Gets his heels down but his hips aren’t in line with his feet, just too far back. 12.833 (5.2, 7.933, -0.3)

Lorenzo Casali ITA FX: 12.966 (5.3, 7.666)

8:40 pm. Zhang Boheng CHN VT: Kaz double with a great landing! 14.900 (5.6, 9.300)

8:39 pm. Lukas Dauser GER HB: Tak full is a little messy and late, Tak half with leg separation, Kovacs was very nice and almost calm? Love that for high bar. Piked Tkachev, some bent elbows on the catch. Arms are better on the straddle Tkachev. Full-twisting double layout, hop. 12.900 (5.3, 7.600)

Joel Plata ESP PB: 12.766 (5.4, 7.366)

8:37 pm. Sofus Heggemsnes NOR FX: 12.766 (4.7, 8.066)

Krisztofer Meszaros HUN HB: 12.833 (5.3, 7.533) – ugh, hate that he’s struggling on this event here

8:36 pm. Asher Hong USA VT: Tsuk full-in, looked like he had it on the landing, chest was pretty low and he was pretty far forward, but he’s SO far forward, he can’t really hold on, ends up taking two giant running lunges out of it. 14.166 (6.0, 8.266, -0.1)

8:35 pm. Brody Malone USA PB: 14.366 (6.0, 8.366)

8:33 pm. Tanigawa Wataru JPN VT: Piked handspring double front half, really deep on the landing, but sticks it with his feet apart! 15.000 (6.0, 9.000) – they give him the pike credit!

Nestor Abad ESP HB: Endo is lovely, Tak half a little short to layout Tkachev, straddle Tkachev to piked Tkachev, stalder, Rybalko finished pretty late, Tak opened really nicely into handstand, full-twisting double layout with a step forward. 13.433 (5.3, 8.133)

8:32 pm. Hashimoto Daiki JPN VT: Kaz double, WOW, this is a DREAM compared to the team final, excellent in the air, chest really low on the landing but he’s right down the middle with just a small hop.

8:31 pm. Krisztian Balazs HUN FX: Randi to start, a little short with a hop. Front full to double front, REALLY low, deep and bounces forward, don’t think it was a fall but it was close. Wobbled in the corner before his third pass, hahaha, oh boy. Hit the third pass, I think a 2.5 to front layout if my memory is correct. Double full down the length. Triple full, maybe a hair underrotated but if it was, he covered it up really nicely with a great landing. 12.833 (5.3, 7.633, -0.1)

8:26 pm. Rotation 3 Standings

7. Illia Kovtun UKR 41.566
8. Luka van den Keybus BEL 41.565

8:23 pm. Yumin Abbadini ITA PB: Really arched on his mount, cleans up in the next couple of elements, really nice press to handstand, I think that was out of an L sit, then only made it about halfway to handstand out of the Healy, had to press up from almost a pike. Also a little muscle up on the handstand on the single rail, but good fight in him, double pike was good. 13.066 (5.3, 7.766)

8:22 pm. Joe Fraser GBR SR: Wasn’t typing at the beginning of this, got the salto swings out to a straddle planche well, clean press to handstand, front giant to handstand was a little short but he gets there in the end, back giant to handstand is a little better, double double with a lunge back. 13.600 (5.6, 8.000)

Tang Chia-Hung TWN PB: 13.366 (4.9, 8.466)

8:20 pm. Luka van den Keybus BEL HB: Yamawaki to Endo full, a little late but not too bad, stalder hop 1.5 finished at horizontal, Tak, some front giants, hop full, and a full-twisting double layout, stuck! Not the most difficult high-flying set but really nice work. 13.366 (5.4, 7.966)

8:19 pm. Zhang Boheng CHN SR: Inverted pike up to iron cross, a little shaky in his hips, swings through to planche, great shape there. Pike swing through to maltese, rolls through to iron cross, inverted pike with a front pike through to iron cross, inverted pike swith a front giant to handstand, back giant to handstand swinging a bit, and a double double with a step back. 14.100 (6.2, 7.900)

Caio Souza BRA VT: 12.700 (5.2, 7.800, -0.3) – UGHHHHH

8:18 pm. Carlos Yulo’s rings score just went from a 13.5 to a 13.8.

8:17 pm. Lukas Dauser GER PB: All of the pirouettes at the start were lovely, only slightly muscled one, good work on transitions between the bars in the middle of his set, one-arm pirouette, perfect handstand out of a half, and then a double front half, great landing. Beautiful! 15.166 (6.6, 8.566)

Lorenzo Casali ITA HB: 12.866 (5.1, 7.766)

8:14 pm. Asher Hong USA SR: Rolls through to iron cross at the start, down to inverted pike, front giant to handstand, maybe a hair short but SO steady and clean, salto swings through to maltese, inverted hang out to maltese, inverted hang into a back giant up to handstand, also GREAT there, he’s not moving AT ALL. Next one is a little less tight but he looks excellent, double double layout, some pike form in the air, STUCK! Wow, this was really good as a whole. 13.833 (5.9, 7.933)

Krisztofer Meszaros HUN PB: 14.066 (5.9, 8.166)

8:13 pm. Jake Jarman GBR VT: Handspring double front half, some form in the air and a lunge back, but this was solid. 14.800 (5.6, 9.200)

Sofus Heggemsnes NOR HB: 12.933 (4.8, 8.133)

8:11 pm. Tanigawa Wataru JPN SR: Inverted pike pressed out to maltese, inverted pike to planche, back giant up to handstand, arched and swaying a bit, tucked and piked swinging saltos to iron cross, rolls through to iron cross, inverted pike to front giant, doesn’t quite make it to handstand ever, double double with a big step back. A bit messy in this but won’t be crushingly bad in terms of a score. 13.833 (6.0, 7.833)

Krisztian Balazs HUN HB: 13.800 (5.7, 8.100)

Diogo Soares BRA VT: 14.266 (4.8, 9.466)

Joel Plata ESP VT: 14.700 (5.6, 9.100)

8:08 pm. Hashimoto Daiki JPN SR: Salto swings through to iron cross, really fluid there. Rolls through to iron cross.

7. Gabriel Burtanete ROU 27.900
8. Sofus Heggemsnes NOR 27.766

7:57 pm. Gabriel Burtanete ROU PB: Short on a couple of handstands at the beginning, just takes a second to get them fully up, Bhavsar, swings up to L sit pressed to handstand, good work on the Tippelt as well, double pike, deep landing with a lunge forward. 13.400 (5.3, 8.100)

7:56 pm. Zhang Boheng CHN PH: Looked like he hit a foot on the horse coming down from a scissor to handstand but it wasn’t anything detrimental, moves well into his circle work, Russians at the end of the horse had nice extension, beautiful into the dismount. This was great.

Jake Jarman GBR SR: 13.000 (4.7, 8.300)

Lorenzo Casali ITA PB: 14.333 (5.8, 8.533)

7:55 pm. Diogo Soares BRA SR: 12.900 (4.5, 8.400)

Tang Chia-Hung TWN VT: 14.000 (4.8, 9.200)

7:52 pm. Asher Hong USA PH: Wasn’t really typing for this but this was a great routine, only really rushed into the dismount after some split legs going up into handstand, but the rest was really strong for him! Really impressed that he came in and hit all three sets here. 13.700 (5.6, 8.100)

7:51 pm. Sofus Heggemsnes NOR PB: Pirouettes at the start were mostly good, just slight hip adjustments in one, arched over a cast to handstand, full-in dismount, small step to the side. Not a ton of difficulty in the interior but that was a solid set! 13.300 (4.8, 8.500)

7:50 pm. Tanigawa Wataru JPN PH: Scissors to handstand have a little adjustment up, circles, then a second scissors to handstand, better on this one, travels in Russians, really smooth into the pirouette into the dismount. Good overall! 13.766 (5.9, 7.866)

7:48 pm. Yumin Abbadini ITA VT: Kaz full, mostly clean in the air, chest forward and a step on the landing.

Brody Malone USA SR: 13.666 (5.6, 8.066)

7:46 pm. Hashimoto Daiki JPN PH: Flairs right off the bat, full turn in flairs went well, scissors to handstand, maybe a hair short, circles on the single handle, then transitions to the horse, Russians on the handle, and then across the horse, some hip bend there, goes into flairs to travel back and forth, took him a second to get his legs under control into the handstand for the dismount, but this was a great routine overall. 14.333 (6.0, 8.333)

Lukas Dauser GER VT: 13.766 (4.8, 8.966)

7:45 pm. Jossimar Calvo COL PB: Happened to look over just as he was crashing down, not sure what happened, but it looked wild. Back on for a Tippelt, kinda sat it before going into handstand. Bhavsar was better. Full-in off the end of the apparatus, good landing. 12.366 (6.0, 6.366)

Casimir Schmidt NED SR: 13.800 (5.5, 8.300)

Krisztofer Meszaros HUN VT: 13.700 (4.8, 9.200, -0.3)

Luka van den Keybus BEL PB: 14.066 (6.0, 8.066)

7:42 pm. Carlos Yulo PHI PH: Scissors to handstand, back down to scissors into circles, moves well into his flairs, they look really nice tonight, travels in circles with no major breaks, just slight hips throughout, NOOOO, then dropped too low and hit the table, had to pause for a second before starting again, so he doesn’t come off but still a big mistake. Finishes after that with no trouble. 11.900 (5.0, 6.900)

7:41 pm. Yumin Abbadini ITA PB: 13.866 (4.8, 9.066)

Illia Kovtun UKR VT: 14.300 (5.2, 9.100)

Caio Souza BRA SR: 13.700 (5.8, 7.900)

7:38 pm. Joe Fraser GBR PH: Scissors to handstand were clean, back down and up, right into his Russians between the handles, circles on both then moves to one, legs fly open and this time he can’t fight, ends up flying right off. Ugh, so sad he just hasn’t been able to make this apparatus work for him at worlds. Back on for circles again, Russians on the single handle, travels in Russians, a little iffy in places but he’s working through it, goes well into the dismount. THIS is what I wish he would’ve done last night, with the early fall and then coming back after a quick mental break, instead of fighting and fighting and fighting only to ultimately fall. Not that it matters, I guess, since they won bronze anyway! But it was close and that could have helped extend the gap a bit over other teams. 13.166 (6.1, 7.066)

7:31 pm. Diogo Soares BRA PH: Scissors through to his circles, Busnari down right into flairs, goes across the horse in Russians, little form breaks into the dismount that cause him to kind of chuck his way through, but a very nice hit for him!

7:29 pm. Asher Hong USA FX: Front full to piked double front, big step forward, ends up OOB. Double double layout with a small slide back. Front tuck full to double front with a big hop forward. Flairs and then a Japanese press for his strength work, nothing really I could see there. 2.5 to front layout, and then wraps things up with a triple full, stuck! Too bad about the landings at the very beginning but he cleaned up nice. 14.266 (6.0, 8.366, -0.1)

Lukas Dauser GER SR: 12.900 (5.0, 7.900)

7:28 pm. Joel Plata ESP PH: Oof, was just about to say he was getting off to a good start on his circles on the single pommel but looked like he missed a hand on the transition down to the horse. Back on, had a significant form break with some leg form early on but then cleaned up for the rest to hit into the dismount. 11.533 (4.7, 6.833)

7:26 pm. Tanigawa Wataru JPN FX: I missed his first pass, did something into a front layout, landing was good, and then a double double, stuck! Solid piked double front. Double full, and a 2.5 to front full, both strong. Arabian double front half-out with a great landing! 14.266 (5.7, 8.566)

Krisztofer Meszaros HUN SR: 13.066 (4.4, 8.666)

Lorenzo Casali ITA VT: Kaz double, a bit crunched down on the landing, step off the mat OOB. 14.233 (5.6, 8.733, -0.1)

7:24 pm. Brody Malone USA PH: Starts out well enough, there’s a lot of talk about the judges not wanting to credit his Mikulak but I don’t know nearly enough about pommels to understand why (and apparently his coaches don’t get it either, so I guess an explanation would be nice). Either way, it’s a hit, nothing super off to me here, and looked like he mostly had a good rhythm going through. 13.766 (5.8, 7.966)

7:22 pm. Hashimoto Daiki JPN FX: Triple double, a little deep but I think the best landing on this so far in terms of chest position and landing in general? Good double double after. 1.5 to randi, a little short, small movement forward. Double full down the side, flared and stuck. 2.5 went a little low and long but gets it into the front layout. Triple full with a hop back, feet apart. Good work. 14.666 (6.0, 8.666)

Nestor Abad ESP SR: 13.233 (5.3, 7.933)

Sofus Heggemsnes NOR VT: Kaz 1.5, slight knees, but a great landing, tiny bounce back. 14.466 (5.2, 9.266)

7:20 pm. Casimir Schmidt NED PH: Scissors work at the beginning was good, straddled a bit in a few of his circles at the beginning, a little slow into the Busnari but goes through it, legs split more on the circles near the end, and gets the dismount down without a hitch. 12.733 (5.7, 7.033)

7:18 pm. Carlos Yulo PHI FX: 2.5 to piked double front, and then a double double layout, twists SO fast, does a layout-in double full-out so he HAS to twist fast, but still – awesome. Great landing. Front full to randi, solid landing. Massive triple full down the side. 1.5 to front double full, baby hop. Sticks the 3.5!!!! 15.166 (6.4, 8.766)

Illia Kovtun UKR SR: 12.666 (4.8, 7.866)

Jossimar Calvo COL VT: Yurchenko 2.5, mostly strong, good landing! 14.400 (5.2, 9.200)

7:16 pm. Caio Souza BRA PH: Glad he qualified high enough to get this out of the way first! Scissors with no major problems, Russians, transitions between levels well, Russians across the horse and then at the end, wide-arm travel, rushes a little into the last circle up into the dismount, but this is a hit! 12.766 (4.9, 7.866)

7:14 pm. Joe Fraser GBR FX: Front layout to piked double front, strong! Double double, chest forward and a lunge. 2.5 to rudi, goes short into the latter and his form is all over the place, lands short. Double full is good. Strong on the arabian double front. Full-in ends a bit short with a step forward. 13.866 (5.7, 8.166)

Luka van den Keybus BEL VT: Yurchenko 2.5, lands it deep with a hop back, amazing save from sitting it! 14.133 (5.2, 9.033, -0.1)

7:13 pm. Jake Jarman GBR PH: Wasn’t typing but this was a ridiculously good routine for him?! Everything looked pretty tidy and fluid, rhythm was on tonight, no struggles into the dismount, wow! 13.333 (5.1, 8.233)

Gabriel Burtanete ROU VT: 14.500 (5.6, 9.000, -0.1)

Tang Chia-Hung TWN SR: 13.366 (5.4, 7.966)

7:11 pm. Zhang Boheng CHN FX: Front full to piked double front is good, hit with a tiny hop forward. I missed the beginning of the second pass, did it into a front layout, I’m gonna guess 2.5? And then had a randi, chest a little hunched over. Double full side pass was solid. Front double full to barani. Triple full, feet apart and a hop back on the landing. 14.033 (5.8, 8.233)

7:06 pm. And now, on with the touch warmup.

7:01 pm. Athletes are marching out now!

6:59 pm. A little note to start off tonight…Adem Asil (big sigh) and Ryu Sunghyun have withdrawn, with Nestor Abad and Krisztofer Meszaros going in their places.

Abad and Meszaros were initially the third and fourth reserves for the finals, but both Egyptian men (Omar Mohamed and Mohamed Afify) withdrew. Most small programs can’t afford to keep teams at events like worlds through to the end and will leave after qualifications, only extending stays for athletes who make finals, so I assume that’s why they’re both out. Sad, their whole team was fantastic in quals.

  1. I’m slightly wondering if Joe has a slight shoulder injury as he seems to be favouring one arm more than the other on rings and pommel. Would explain the issues he’s had with pommel this championships as he’s usually so consistent on them! I think his scores have been very fair tbh.
