CHINA claimed the opening gold of the 45th World Artistic Gymnastics Championships 2014 on Tuesday with victory in the men's team final.
In a close-run competition in Nanning, it was the home team who prevailed as they edged Japan into second place with a final score of 273.369 points.
The team of Cheng Ran, Deng Shudi, Lin Chaopan, Liu Yang, You Hao and Zhang Chenglong performed consistently well throughout the day, handling the pressure of performing in front of a home crowd to claim a sixth consecutive world team title. With the final event of the competition - the horizontal bar - remaining, the gold remained in the balance but Deng, Lin and Zhang collected 45.957 points to claim the title by a tenth of a point.
JAPAN started the competition strongly and were ahead after the floor and pommel horse apparatus, however, China began to claw them back with the top scores in the final four events. Cheng's slip during a tumble on the floor exercise led to China falling 0.691 points behind but after the rings they were back in contention, with Zhang's horizontal bar routine securing the victory. Ryohei Kato, Yusuke Tanaka and Kohei Uchimura did their best to secure the title on the final apparatus but their efforts were in vain and Japan had to settle for silver.
UNITED STATES  completed the podium with bronze after their total of 270.369 eclipsed Great Britain, leaving the latter outside the medals despite their best performance at a World Championships. Russia, who were also in contention for a medal, saw their hopes begin to fade after a poor pommel horse routine. They were never able to recover and had to settle for fifth with 266.503 points.
Newcomer Brazil, which qualified to the very first time for a worlds team final, came on 6th place and Switzerland on 7th beat Germany with the best result since 40 years (Varna, 1974)
