Trampoline, Tumbling & DMT competitions finished in Cali

 *fig-news --: The first of three competition days for Trampoline and Acrobatic Gymnastics got underway at El Pueblo Coliseum on Monday with qualifications and finals in the Men’s Synchronised Trampoline as well as the Women’s and Mixed Pairs Acro categories. China surprised with a rare mistake during qualifications, but 2011 World Champions Dong Dong & Xiao Tu redeemed themselves in the final, where they rediscovered their usual form and produced the most difficult routine of the day with high execution and synchronisation scores to clearly top the field. After a disappointing second routine, Denmark’s Peter Jensen and Christian Andersen outscored Portugal in the final to take the Bronze. Russia were the most consistent pair today with a fine overall performance to earn a deserved Silver.
* 2nd Day of Trampoline Competitions
The Trampoline and Acrobatic Gymnastics competitions at The World Games 2013 Cali continued on Tuesday with day two of three at El Pueblo Coliseum. On the programme were qualifications and finals in Men’s and Women’s Tumbling, as well as the Women’s Groups and Men’s Pairs Acrobatic Gymnastics categories.
The Tumbling events saw ZHANG Luo of China and Viktor KYFORENKO of Ukraine tie for the men’s World Games title and China’s LIA Fangfang prevail in the women’s event.

* Men’s Tumbling
Eight tumblers competed for the same number of available spots in the final, but with participation limited to a maximum of one gymnast per federation and China the only nation with two entries, it was left to that Zhang Luo and Yang Song to battle it out between themselves.
Reigning World Champion Yang was left standing with slightly lower execution values for his qualifying passes and Zhang realised his chance of competing for the medal spots. In the final he took a commanding lead, with high difficulty and flawless execution in both passes.
However, Zhang was joined on the top step of the podium by Ukraine’s Viktor Kyforenko, who came back strongly in the final after a mistake in his first qualifying pass, tying for first place. With nearly a four-point gap to Zhang and Kyforenko, 20-year-old crowd favourite Kristof Willerton of Great Britain took the Bronze, outscoring Russia’s Grigory Noskov.

* Men’s Double Mini-Trampoline
Canadians Denis Vachon and Keegan Soehn impressed with excellent performances in the preliminaries, taking first and second place respectively. With the rules allowing only one gymnast per country in the final, however, only Vachon advanced to the latter stages, where he finished a disappointing fifth.
World Champion Bruno Martini was not up to his usual standard in qualification, but he came back strongly in the final to take the World Games title. Both of his final passes were brilliant, marking the competition’s highest difficulty values. Qualified in third place, 20-year-old Mikhail Zalomin of Russia took a deserved Silver with an overall remarkable performance. Finally, André Lico, who hurt himself during his first pass in the preliminaries and consequently abandoned the second, produced the pass with the second highest difficulty value of the competition to win the Bronze.
