De Jesus Dos Santos and Jessica Gadirova win Gold

On balance beam, Melanie De Jesus Dos Santos from France wins her first title on this apparatus after silver at the European Championships 2019. She performs by far the most difficult routine. Apart from an unsteady landing after the double somersault backwards with a full twist, she shows flawless routine on balance beam. Olympic champion Sanne Wevers from the Netherlands took silver. Like De Jesus Dos Santos, she also increased her routine compared to the qualification and performs without any mistakes. The 17-year-old Anastasiia Bachynska from the Ukraine surprises in third place. She was the second reserve gymnast to reach the final.

Britain’s Jessica Gadirova impressively decides the generation duel on floor and secures the European title at her senior’s premiere. With her flawless routine she even beats top favourite Angelina Melnikova and thus wins a complete set of medals in Basel. By winning the bronze medal, Vanessa Ferrari from Italy proves that she is far from finished with gymnastics. Local hero Giulia Steingruber did not compete, she wants to fully heal her left thigh, preparing for Olympic Games.
