AGU Media, DOHA (QAT): China’s Zhang Luo won the men’s tumbling title with a score of 75.100 at The World Games in Wroclaw, Poland, but their overall performances left a lot to be desired.
While Luo beat the US and Russian competitors in his event, his compatriots had a torrid time in acrobatic where they finished behind Great Britain while Israel came third.
Despite an extraordinary display of ‘difficulty’ shown by Chinese world champions Li Zheng, Rui Liuming, Zhang Teng and Zhou Jiahuai, it was not good enough to pip the British gymnasts as the medal was decided on the strength of superior ‘Execution and Artistry’ scored by the latter.
Meanwhile, in one of their most disappointing shows, Li Dan and Zhong Xingping, reigning world champions since 2013, failed to defend their crown in the women’s synchronised trampoline after an unexpected fall by Li crashed their hopes in the qualifiers. Azerbaijan’s Sviatlana Makshtarova and Veronika Zemlianaia won the silver behind Ukraine.
In aerobics, China won a gold and two silver medals while Japan and South Korea won a gold and silver each.
Rhythmic, trampoline, tumbling, acrobatics and aerobics are part of the competition, but artistic gymnastics is not contested because all of its disciplines are Olympic sports.
