Fitness

The finals of the 2021 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships kicked off in Kitakyushu, Japan, and so far it’s been nothing but medals for Team USA. Four women and six men participated in qualifications, then two women — Kayla DiCello and Leanne Wong — and four men — Yul Moldauer, Brody Malone, Stephen Nedoroscik, and Alec Yoder — ultimately made it past the prelims to compete for world titles. Here, we’re breaking down how the American athletes fare. Come back each day this week as we update this post with new results when the competitions unfold.

Note: There is no team event this time around, and the top eight qualifiers — with a two-per-country maximum — and top 24 all-around qualifiers — also with a two-per-country maximum — moved on to the finals. Scores are refreshed for these final competitions.

Team USA Results: World Artistic Gymnastics Championships Women’s All-Around Final

On Oct. 21, Wong and DiCello competed in the world all-around final and finished second and third, respectively, behind the Russian Gymnastics Federation’s Angelina Melnikova. Melnikova tallied an overall score of 56.632 and maintained her first-place status from the second rotation onward. Wong also solidified her silver-medal ranking following the second rotation, and she finished with a 56.340.

DiCello started off strong with a 14.6 on vault, then a fall on bars had her contending for that bronze podium position for the rest of the competition (beam and floor were solid for her!). Her final all-around score was a 54.566, almost a point ahead of the next-highest contender, fourth-place finisher and Melnikova’s teammate Vladislava Urazova. Read more about how the 2021 world women’s all-around final went here. A rerun will air on NBCSN on Oct. 21 at 7 p.m. ET.

Team USA Results: World Artistic Gymnastics Championships Men’s All-Around Final

The world all-around competition on the men’s side takes place on Friday, Oct. 22. Moldauer, a Tokyo Olympian, is the only American man who competed all-around in the qualifiers, and he placed 13th overall there. You can watch the men’s all-around competition live at 5 a.m. ET via Olympic Channel and at 7 p.m. ET that night on NBCSN.

Team USA Results: World Artistic Gymnastics Championships Men’s Pommel Horse Final

Nedoroscik, a two-time NCAA pommel horse champion as well as the 2021 US pommel horse champion, and Yoder, the 2019 NCAA champ and 2021 national silver medalist on pommel horse, compete in the men’s final at the 2021 World Championships on Saturday, Oct. 23. They were among the top eight finishers on that event (Nedoroscik was second, followed by Yoder by less than a tenth). It’s a big deal to have two Americans competing in the pommel horse final given that no American has ever won a world gold medal on the event, Teamusa.org notes.

No other man or woman from Team USA qualified in the additional event finals on this day; however, Moldauer is the first reserve athlete (aka the replacement) for floor. You can watch Nedoroscik and Yoder compete live on the Olympic Channel at 3:10 a.m. ET.

Team USA Results: World Artistic Gymnastics Championships Women’s Beam Final

Wong and DiCello placed fourth and seventh, respectively, on beam in the qualifying round. These finals take place on Sunday, Oct. 24, and at the top of the pack is Luo Rui from China with a high difficulty score of 6.1. As of now, you can watch the competition live on the Olympic Channel starting at 3:25 a.m. ET, and there will be further World Championships coverage on NBC and Peacock starting at 1:40 p.m. ET that day, according to USA Gymnastics (NBC.com lists this additional coverage as beginning at 1:30 p.m. ET).

Team USA Results: World Artistic Gymnastics Championships Women’s Floor Final

Wong and DiCello qualified third and fourth in the floor finals at 2021 Worlds taking place on Sunday, Oct. 24, the same day as the beam final. In the prelims, the top floor competitors were separated by mere tenths (some by less than a tenth), so it’ll be a close one. Wong had the highest floor score of the night during the all-around competition on Oct. 21. Coverage of the floor final will be mixed in with the women’s beam final and three men’s event finals on the Olympic Channel starting at 3:25 a.m. ET. Like we mentioned and according to USA Gymnastics, there will be further World Championships coverage on NBC and Peacock starting at 1:40 p.m. ET that day (NBC.com lists this coverage as starting at 1:30 p.m. ET).

Team USA Results: World Artistic Gymnastics Championships Men’s High Bar Final

Also on Sunday, Oct. 24, is the men’s high bar final, where Malone, another Tokyo Olympian, will compete after landing in fourth during qualifications.

The competition takes place on Sunday, Oct. 24; watch Malone compete live on the Olympic Channel starting at 3:25 a.m. ET. As mentioned, there will be further World Championships coverage on NBC and Peacock starting at 1:40 p.m. ET that day, according to USA Gymnastics (NBC.com lists this coverage as beginning at 1:30 p.m. ET).

Team USA Results: World Artistic Gymnastics Championships Men’s Parallel Bars Final

You can see Moldauer, the 2021 US parallel bars champion, compete in the men’s parallel bars final on Sunday, Oct. 24, as well. He qualified through in sixth place. He’ll compete on the Olympic Channel sometime after the live coverage starts at 3:25 a.m. ET, and there will be further World Championships coverage on NBC and Peacock starting at 1:40 p.m. ET that day, according to USA Gymnastics (NBC.com lists this coverage as starting at 1:30 p.m. ET).
