Chusovitina Wins Vault In Doha World Cup
(5 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

At 42, Oksana Chusovitina keeps winning vault. At the 2018 World Cup in Doha, Qatar, March 21-24, she won the event with a layout Rudi and a Tsukahara-11/2 twist.

In qualifications, Kohei Uchimura competed on pommel horse (where he fell), rings, vault and high bar, but did not qualify to any finals. The closest he came was on vault, where he placed ninth (two vaults).

“I will check all the footages of my performances when I get back to Japan,” the 29-year-old Uchimura said. “I need to work on my weaknesses. Training was excellent, but I wasn’t in the best mood.”

Dmitri Lankin of Russia claimed the floor title, mounting with a roundoff triple back. Ukrainian Igor Radivilov won rings and vault, and Zou Jingyuan of China won pommel horse and parallel bars. 2017 World high bar champion Tin Srbic won that event in Doha.

Nina Derwael of Belgium won uneven bars by a wide margin, and Melanie De Jesus Dos Santos clinched the balance beam title. And there was a three-way tie on women’s floor exercise.
