Fan defends uneven bars title at worlds
    2017-October-9  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

CHINESE gymnast Fan Yilin defended her title in uneven bars of the world championships in Montreal, Canada, on Saturday.

Two years ago in Glasgow, Fan shared the world title with three rivals, an unprecedented result in modern gymnastics history. This time Fan made sure she put herself alone atop the event by taking the title again with 15.166 points, defeating all-around bronze medalist Elena Eremina of Russia by a mere 0.066.

The third place went to Belgium’s Nina Derwael, who earned her country’s first world medal.

“The gold boosts my confidence in a great way. I will work harder on the event and make my performance much better,” said the 17-year-old Fan.

On Friday, U.S. teenager Morgan Hurd snatched a surprise women’s all-around gold.

The bespectacled 16-year-old, who was born in China and adopted as a toddler, followed in the footsteps of celebrated compatriot Simone Biles — ably shouldering U.S. hopes after national champion Ragan Smith withdrew minutes before the competition with an ankle injury. It was a stunning world championships debut for Hurd, who was sixth at the P&G Championships in August but secured a place on the four-woman U.S. team for the championships at a selection camp in September.

Hurd won with a total of 55.232 points, denying home hope Ellie Black of Canada who took silver with 55.132. (SD-Xinhua)
