Larduet tops men's all-around qualification at Artistic Gymnastics World Championships

Larduet tops men's all-around qualification at Artistic Gymnastics World Championships”

Ukrainian gymnast Oleg Verniaiev, who pushed Uchimura all the way in the all-around competition at last year's Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro before being forced to settle for the silver medal, is among the favourites and qualified in fifth.

Tinkler, a bronze medallist in the floor routine at the Olympics last year, only resumed training in August after undergoing surgery to fix her injury earlier this year.

But the 17-year-old looks likely to make the all-around final.

Although there are still four sub divisions remaining to be completed before final results from Qualifications are known, Godwin now sits third All-Around with a total score of 51.874, and is in the running to qualify for the All-Around Final.

"I'm absolutely buzzing with my performance", Tinkler told BBC Sport. I've been really ill.

"I had to twist after failing to reach high enough", Uchimura said. "I'm really happy to be out here representing again".

"To be honest I feel a bit disappointed in myself but I guess it's a good experience for me", Mizzen said.

While Kinsella faces a nervy wait to see if her total will take her into the all-around final, Fenton should qualify for the bars final after scoring an impressive 14.533.

Meanwhile, Kenzo Shirai placed fourth in the qualifiers and advanced to Thursday's men's individual all-around final.

China's Xiao Ruoteng booked his place in the final in second, ahead of Russia's David Belyavskiy in third.

Armenia's Artur Davtyan and Harutyun Merdinyan have reached the finals of the 2017 FIG Artistic Gymnastics World Championships, now underway in Montréal, Canada.

And Wilson will take part in Thursday's all-around final, although he was just squeezed out of the high bar final - the apparatus in which he won Olympic bronze a year ago.

Tulloch will aim to be the first British gymnast to win a medal in a world rings final, which is also on Saturday.
