Britain’s Daniel Purvis takes the men’s title!

* baga --:  The Men’s competition at the Glasgow World Cup all-around contained a lot of experienced gymnasts that all had the potential to take home a medal. Dan Purvis (GBR) gave a superb performance throughout to claim the Gold medal in front of a supportive home crowd.
Purvis was closely followed by the recently crowned European Champion, Philipp Boy (GER), whose fall on Vault cost him the title.
The bronze went to Rafael Martinez from Spain who performed some exciting routines to please the crowd.
Britain’s Sam Hunter finished down in 8th position whilst wildcard Daniel Keating’s (GBR) used the competition to enter back into World stage following a serious knee injury, although he could not be counted in the overall rankings, Keatings put in a very promising performance.
The women’s event took place in front of a sell out crowd in the Kelvin Hall arena. There were some strong contenders in the group but with a lot of falls counted, the medal places were fought right to the finish. Racea (ROU) took the top spot after a clean all-around performance showing composure throughout. Lopez (VEN) took the Silver medal position with consistent scores on all pieces.
The young Romanian Haidu grabbed the Bronze despite two falls, performing an energetic floor routine to secure her place in the top 3. Britain’s Hannah Whelan finished in 5th, with some good work but unfortunate falls that left her outside the medals.
Jennifer Pinches also from Great Britain finished in 8th, she ended with a solid performance on floor but earlier mistakes proved to be costly.
