Silver For Nedov and Our Final Day At Melbourne World Cup
The last day of the World Cup Gymnastics at Melbourne Arena took place on Sunday 24 February.
The second day of Finals included Men’s Vault, Parallel Bars, Horizontal Bar, Women’s Floor and Beam and the Australian Team would go on to be represented in each apparatus.
The night started with the Balance Beam and what a success that apparatus was for the Australian's. Emma Nedov showed the world why she loves the Beam, with a score of 13.500.
She went on to claim Australia’s second 2019 Melbourne World Cup medal by placing second and receiving the Silver medal.
The second Australian athlete who competed on Beam was Elena Chipizubov; this routine was her Senior International Finals debut in front of a home crowd.
A great routine followed by the loud cheers of Melbourne Arena, Chipizubov placed with a score of 13.033 at a successful fourth place.
Chris Remkes was our sole Australian competitor in Men’s Vault. Remkes was looking for back to back Gold medals in this event after he won in 2018.
Although Remkes did not make it onto the podium this year, the Australian crowd was lucky enough to witness the thrill of seeing Remkes live in action.
He finished his Melbourne World Cup campaign in sixth position on Vault with a score of 14.083.
Next up was Parallel Bars; Mitch Morgans had to wait until last before he could take on the Parallel Bars.
He performed a fantastic routine and just fell short of a medal and finished in fourth position with a 14.200.
Morgans then had to go straight to the Horizontal Bar as he was first up in the next rotation.
He had to set the bar high knowing that he would be up against World Champions in Epke Zonderland and Hidetaka Miyachi.
The crowd behind him through every twist and turn, Morgans finished with a strong score of 14.033 which resulted in him finishing fourth overall.
Tyson Bull was our second competitor on the Horizontal Bar and what a delight it was for Bull to be able to compete in front of his home crowd again after returning from the University of Illinois.
Bull looked very comfortable out on his specialty and came away with a fifth placing overall for a score of 13.966 just behind team mate Morgans.
The final apparatus of the event was Women’s Floor where Nedov was once again out there for Australia.
Nedov looked amazing out there and she was the final routine of the night so the crowd was as loud as ever. She went on to place fourth overall and just missed out on a medal with a score of 11.833.
Congratulations to all eleven of our athletes who represented Australia at the World Cup Gymnastics at Melbourne Arena.
