On Sunday, the best female artistic gymnast in the Commonwealth as an individual will be determined (31 July).
The finals will be held on Sunday, with the men’s competition beginning in the morning. The 18 gymnasts who earned the highest combined scores across all four apparatus will participate. Each country is limited to sending just two gymnasts to the championship.
Due to the lack of a score carryover from the preliminary round, the scores will be reset to zero. The gymnasts compete in groups based on their rankings; for example, the top six scorers from Saturday are all in the same group, perform on the same apparatus, and can watch the other gymnasts in their group perform. Even the word “nervous” seems inadequate.
Gymnasts compete in two groups of nine, each performing on all four apparatus (the vault, uneven bars, the (often dreaded) balance beam, and the floor), with the combined points determining the winners.
Where to Keep an Eye on the Local
ladies Alice Kinsella was the top qualifier, followed by Ondine Achampong, a fellow countrywoman and first-time participant in multiple sports. In front of her home fans, Kinsella, who won bronze in the all-around in her previous competition, will be very difficult to beat.
Another athlete to keep an eye on is Georgia Godwin of Australia, who won silver in the all-around competition at the previous Olympic Games held in her native country. On Saturday, her squad was defeated by England in the team event, leaving her still without a Commonwealth gold medal (30 July).
