With England’s Alice Kinsella and Ondine Achampong just ahead of Australia’s Georgia Godwin in the rankings following qualifying on Friday, it appears as though the two countries, who finished first and second in the team competition, will continue their rivalry in the individual all-around competition on Sunday (31 July) (29 July). In game!
Women’s All Around Final How to Watch
On Sunday, the best female artistic gymnast in the Commonwealth will be determined (31 July).
The men’s final takes place in the morning, and features the 18 gymnasts who earned the highest combined scores across all four apparatus during Saturday’s qualification round. Each country is limited to sending just two gymnasts to the finals.
For this round, there will be no score carryover from the preliminary round, so all scores will be reset to zero. The gymnasts are divided into groups based on their scores from the previous day; this means that the top six scorers from Saturday will always be competing against each other on the same apparatus and will be able to watch their progress. It was really nerve-wracking, to put it mildly.
Each of the two teams of nine gymnasts competes on all four pieces of equipment—the vault, uneven bars, the (often dreaded) balancing beam, and the floor—with the combined points determining the winners.
Where To Keep An Eye On
Alice Kinsella, a local girl, qualified first, followed by Ondine Achampong, a first-time multi-sport athlete. And with the local crowd behind her, Kinsella, who won bronze in the all-around in her last competition, will be tough to defeat.
Also worth keeping an eye on is Georgia Godwin of Australia, who won silver in the all-around competition at the previous Olympic Games held in her native country. On Saturday, her squad was defeated by England in the team event, leaving her still without a Commonwealth gold medal (30 July).
