Steingruber wins gold – Gischard takes silver and next title for Nagornyy

On floor, Russia’s Nikita Nagornyy wins his second title at these European Championships. His picked triple somersault at the beginning of his routine was spectacular, a maximum difficulty. With 6.8 points in the difficulty score, no other finalist can keep up. Benjamin Gischard comes second with a super routine and hardly any wobbles in his landings. The judges rewarded this with the highest execution score of all eight gymnasts. Nicola Bartolini from Italy also shines with good execution and wins bronze despite a low difficulty score.

  1. Nagornyy 15,166
  2. Gischard 14,966
  3. Bartolini 14,666
