Gymnastics World Championship Men's Group Today Final Yuka / Horse is the Key October 9th 4:53
The gymnastics world championship held in Germany will be the final of the men ’s group on the 9th. Japan won the third place with a slight difference between Russia and China in the qualifying, and in the final aiming for the gold medal for the first time in two tournaments, "Yuka" and "Jumping horse" that did not increase in the qualifying are key.
Japan in this tournament is missing due to the injuries of Rio de Janeiro Olympic group gold medals such as Kohei Uchimura and Kenzo Shirai.
It was a tournament that was harsh, but in the qualifying on the 7th, the performance of 18 years old, Daiki Hashimoto, etc. shined for the first time. It was 3rd in the difference.
In this qualifying, “Yuka” and “Jumping Horse” were inferior to Russia and China.
In the group qualifying, the team scored a total of three teams, but in Yuka, Russia had two in the 14s and China had three, whereas Japan had one.
Also, in the “jumping horse”, Russia had a 15-point level with 2 and 14-point level, and China had a 14-point level for all three, while Japan had a 14-point level with two.
The key to the final is the brother of Sho Tanigawa in Yuka and Kosuke Tanigawa in Jumping.
His younger brother, Sho, fell on the “Yuka” that was expected to score nearly 15 points in qualifying, and remained at the 12-point level.
In addition, the older brother's navigator did not qualify for the “jumping horse” in which he injured his left ankle just before the tournament and scored around 15 points.
In the final, Sho will be participating in “Yuka” again, and the fighter will be participating in “Jumping Horse”.
In the absence of previous members, if you can show Japan's ability to be at the top of the world, the performance of the final will attract attention as much as possible to give a big boost to next year's Tokyo Olympics.
