Pinned

Hello everyone! @jooliejulie back with you for the apparatus finals night that we have all been waiting for Max vs Louis for (hopefully) a Team GB Gold. up first though, it's the floor final. and Max also goes in this, alongside team mate Kristian Thomas.

Highest qualifiers are the 2 american gymnasts Sam Mikulak and Jacob Dalton but all 8 are covered by just 0.6 so its really whoever sticks it the best!

first up. All around Kohei Uchimura... not started as planed with a small hop out on the first tumble, but he's pleasing the crowd with some lovely tumbles. last tumble. super triple twist. This is his only individual final surprisingly. score to come.

15.241 for Uchimura and I don't see that medaling. Hypolito the home favourite up next. crowd loving it. 15.500 in quali.

great 2nd tumble from Hypolito, crowd going wild everytime he sticks a landing! just the last tumble and he and the crowd, go wild. that was great. just what this evening needed. that would be a great story if he can medal here.

15.533 for Hypolito and he's pleased with that. Max up next! COME ON MAX!

lovely 2nd tumble, sticking the landing and almost straight into the flares, which everyone loves. bit deep on that landing, maybe a small deduction there. last one, good twisting and a fab landing. he's pleased. that could be a good score.

its fist pumps all around in the slow motion replays.... a big score of 15.633 for Max. that's a great one. 5still to go remember though.

and straight to Kristian Thomas! great couple of opening tumbles, and he sticks the last landing. He should be pleased with that one! can he overtake team mat Max in 1st ?

Currently Max in 1st, followed by the Brazilian, with Uchimura 3 of the 3 scores in so far.... and Kristian only scores 15.058. he goes 4th.
