Competing for Team Wales, Maisie Methuen and Latalia Bevan placed in 7th and 8th.

Nile Wilson ended the Games as he started - with gold on high bar. His routine was world class and all most faultless, scoring him 14.533 for his third gold medal. James Hall was also hugely impressive, he once again showed his consistency and skill to produce a superb well executed routine for 14.000 to take silver. Frank Baines of Team Scotland finished just outside the medals in 4th with 13.33. Hamish Carter unfortunately fell twice in his routine and scored 11.033 for 8th.

Welsh teammate Emily Thomas was the first up in the final scoring 12.866 to finish in 6th. 15 year old Taeja James of Team England has shown she’s one to watch for the future and again demonstrated some high difficulty skills in her floor, two steps out costing her, she scored 12.666 for 7th. Alice Kinsella last up, unfortunately couldn’t control her last tumble and placed 8th (11.666).
