A miss of Chinese Sun Wei in hand cost the reigning champion China gold. Instead, it was Russia who held the pressure and took the nation's first World Cup team ever in artistic gymnastics.


It was the Giants' fight in Stuttgart when China and Russia settled for gold in the team finals.

Before the final rotation, China's Zou Jingyuan stood for a brilliant performance when, with a difficulty of 7.0 in conifer, he implemented a flawless program. 16,383 became the point and took China in first place.

But then came the failure of the reigning champion team.

Chinese miss in the team final

Sun Wei lost hold of the offense and was severely punished by the judges, while Russia with Nikita Nagornyy as the last man out in the competition managed to perform when it mattered most.

Russia has won Olympic gold, but has never been highest on the podium in the World Cup context. The joy was evident when the Russians realized that the gold was secured, while Sun Wei was comforted by his teammates with tears in their eyes.
