- GB manage to overcome disastrous pommel horse section
- China’s consistency gives them gold with Japan in second
After two rotations of the men’s team final at the world gymnastics championships in Liverpool, it would have been fair to conclude that Great Britain’s medal hopes were kaputt. Faced with a clear opportunity to snatch a medal, they headed to the dreaded pommel horse – the apparatus that exposes nerves, ruins dreams and takes souls – and they melted down.
Despite how bleak things seemed, rock bottom after the second rotation, the team kept their composure and fight in a chaotic men’s team final, recovering to salvage a spectacular bronze medal. China’s consistency allowed them to secure gold, while Japan took silver.
