Max Whitlock won his world title and also there had been individual worldwide medals for Ellie Downie and sisters Becky at the World Gymnastics Championships in Stuttgart on Saturday.
Whitlock had to settle for silver at Doha last season but he chased a close contest with a score of 15.500, defeating Lee Chih-kai of Chinese Taipei and Irelands Rhys McClenaghan, who had pipped Whitlock to gold at the Commonwealth Games and European Championships last year.
An mistake may have price Whitlock but the problem of his routine proved critical to his success.
Whitlock becomes the primary gymnast to win world titles – hes Olympic winner – while McClenaghan is the gymnast .
There were tears for Becky Downie, who thought that her chance might have gone.
However, Downie, whos recovered from elbow and ankle injuries, made a brilliant routine on the uneven bars to evaluate 15.000.
For a long time, it looked like this may be sufficient for gold, but she was eventually pipped from Belgiums Nina Derwael, who successfully defended her title with a score of 15.233.
Downie had watched her sister Ellie shoot bronze to the vault behind American Simone Biles, who equalled Vitaly Scherbos list.
