10:32 am. Sugimoto Kaito JPN PB: Had a moment early in the routine where he came up short on a pirouette and walked out of it but the rest was strong, good variety of elements in this set, and he’s great at basically all of them! 15.000 (6.3, 8.700)
10:27 am. Lukas Dauser GER PB: Great on the first handstand, and Makuts with a half turn out, pirouette to half pirouette, so controlled on everything, clean Makuts, more clean pirouettes, double front half stuck! 15.400 (6.6, 8.800)
10:24 am. Matteo Levantesi ITA PB: Little adjustment out of the giant Makuts, legs came slightly apart in handstand on the single rail, arches over and walks out of a half turn, pirouette right to the Bhavsar, more walking out of another handstand, caught a salto, double pike, lands really forward with a big leap out of the landing, he’s laughing like what the hell was this. 13.866 (6.4, 7.466)

Asher Hong USA PB: A little short on the first cast to handstand, looks good in the Bhavsar and Tippelt, Makuts is almost where it needs to be, pirouette out was strong, lovely Healy, double front half, a little low but still a good landing, and this was a great routine overall! 14.466 (6.0, 8.466)

9:27 am. Shilese Jones USA BB: Switch leap mount to switch half. A little low on the standing arabian. Split jump to straddle jump. Bhs bhs layout, came in a little low in the set for that and lands it a little forward but it’s not severe, still pretty solid. Clean side aerial. Full turn. Double pike, forward on the landing and she shockingly crashes it! 12.933 (5.6, 7.333)
9:22 am. Sanne Wevers NED BB: Floaty back handspring mount to wolf jump full to one-arm back handspring, had a couple of little moments in there that weren’t entirely stable but I think the connections were all there? Double L turn. Side aerial to back handspring. Front aerial to split jump to Kochetkova. Full L turn to full spin to double spin, little wobble there. Switch leap to hop jump full I think after that. Gainer full with a little step. Mostly fantastic stuff! 14.100 (5.9, 8.200)
9:17 am. Zhou Yaqin CHN BB: Candle mount, she got the front handspring front tuck to jump series, very nice connections. Full turn. Switch ring, low back leg I think. Clean side somi to tuck jump full to straight jump full, just wobbles a bit on the very last skill. Front aerial to split ring jump to Korbut. Triple full with a step back. This was great! 14.700 (6.5, 8.200)
9:14 am. Waiting for the touch to wrap up!
9:08 am. Simone Biles USA BB: Switch mount, little check into the switch half to back pike. Triple wolf turn is great. Front aerial to split jump to straddle jump, maybe a little rushed there. Good on the bhs loso loso. Good side aerial. Excellent landing on the full-in. 14.800 (6.5, 8.300)
9:03 am. Zhang Qingying CHN BB: Lovely on the mount series to Korbut. Roundoff layout, tiniest adjustment. Switch ring, sits it on the beam. Ummm, okay, today is not a switch ring day. Switch side to split jump half to Yurchenko loop, catches it on her chest which I’m gonna say is a fall if her landing there the other day was a fall. Nice full turn. Switch to split jump half to straddle jump 3/4, love that so much. Double pike with a step back. 13.100 (6.2, 6.900)
8:59 am. Pauline Schäfer GER BB: Bhs loso, lovely landing. Switch ring, misses a foot and falls onto the beam. NOOOOOO. Double spin with a little check. Little bobble on the Schäfer as well. Front aerial to split jump to stag ring jump. Side aerial. Gainer dismount was nice. 12.800 (5.4, 7.500, -0.1)
8:55 am. Ashikawa Urara JPN BB: Hit the back handspring mount and the side aerial layout steoput well. Switch leap to split ring jump, very nice. Switch ring, back knee could be higher. Good side somi. Double turn with a check, small form break, gets the dismount! Triple full, some leg form but a great landing. 14.066 (5.9, 8.166)

6. Artur Davtyan, Armenia, 14.549
7. Harry Hepworth, Great Britain, 14.433
8. Kevin Penev, Bulgaria, 14.183
8:43 am. Nazar Chepurnyi UKR VT: Dragulescu, comes in a little low but barely moves his feet. They’re apart but pretty solid! Not the same height he’s capable of, I think his biggest deduction will be the squat and the chest down. 14.833 (5.6, 9.233)
Second vault is a Kas double full, big step to the side OOB on the landing, and his chest position again isn’t great but this was overall clean in the air. 14.700 (5.6, 9.200, -0.1)
8:38 am. Igor Radivilov UKR VT: Pretty decent form in his big Dragulescu and the landing is great, just a tiny bounce forward. 14.900 (5.6, 9.300)
Tsuk double pike, big slide back into a lunge to control the landing, but was really strong in the air! 14.600 (5.6, 9.000)
8:34 am. Artur Davtyan ARM VT: Dragulescu, gets nowhere near the block he normally does, kind of scary how close to the vault he is actually? Oh he looks so sad. Really deep landing with a stumble forward toward the table. 13.966 (5.6, 8.666, -0.3)
Follows it up with a beautiful stuck handspring randi. 15.133 (5.6, 9.533)
8:30 am. Harry Hepworth GBR VT: Dragulescu, little bounce on the landing, chest a bit forward, looked like a foot OOB on the hop, some form in the air but not super severe. 14.533 (5.6, 9.033, -0.1)
Handspring randi for the second vault, pretty nice in the air but doesn’t look fully ready for the landing, comes down a bit forward, chest down and a few steps as he stumbles forward OOB. 14.333 (5.6, 9.033, -0.3)
8:26 am. Touch should be wrapping up for the second half!
8:21 am. Jake Jarman GBR VT: Kas 2.5, no stick today sadly but still a FANTASTIC vault, and the landing is still pretty great, just a small hop forward. 15.400 (6.0, 9.400)
Dragulescu for the second vault, slides back into a lunge but the height on that was fantastic, what a vaulter this guy is. 14.700 (5.6, 9.100)
15.050 average to move ahead of Young!
8:18 am. Kevin Penev BUL VT: Massive Kas 1.5! Little lack of control on the landing with a hop forward and in the air it’s just a little soft throughout his body line but no significant bends or anything. 14.166 (5.2, 8.966)
Really nice second vault, a Shewfelt, very clean, but has a big hop forward that goes OOB. 14.200 (5.2, 9.300, -0.3)
8:13 am. Paul Juda USA VT: Yurchenko double pike, really nice in the air, just lands a bit short with his chest down and a big step forward OOB. 14.600 (5.6, 9.100, -0.1)
Does a big Kas 1.5 for the second vault, has to take a huge hop forward on that landing but it’s pretty clean in the air overall. 14.500 (5.2, 9.300)
8:09 pm. Khoi Young USA VT: Stuck the handspring randi!!! WOW, really held onto that landing. Went a little off directionally, feet apart on the landing, some form in the air, but this was incredible. 15.033 (5.6, 9.433)
Second vault is a Yurchenko half-on front layout double full, another fantastic landing. Again, just some pretty minor form in the air, and he goes a bit to the side, but this was basically another stick, just an arm wave to control it. 14.666 (5.4, 9.266)
8:02 am. Athletes are marching out for the men’s vault final!
