The 2019 Valladolid World Cup took place this weekend, and these T&T gymnasts soared high towards huge scores! Some of the world’s best competed there, and it was an exciting weekend for all. 

Women’s

Individual Trampoline

China won the first two medals on this event when Liu Lingling took first place, scoring a 56.890, and Zhu Xueying came in second with a 56.610. Hikaru Mori, representing Japan, came in third place with a 56.490. 

Synchronized Trampoline

Ukraine’s Maryna Kyiko and Svitlana Malkova came in first place, scoring a 49.270. They were more than two entire points ahead of second place, Australia’s Lauren Sampson and Jessica Pickering. Samantha Smith and Rachel Si Min Tam came in third, over another point behind with a 46.360.

Double Mini Trampoline

Russia claimed first place on this event, when Aleksandra Bonartseva scored a 70.300 to take the gold. Lina Sjoeberg of Sweden took second, close behind with a 69.400. Tristan Van Natta represented the United States and came in third with a 68.100. 

Tumbling

Tachina Peeters of Belgium took first place in the women’s final tumbling competition, with a flat 70.000. Great Britain took the two other podium places, showing its dominance on this event, when Shanice Davidson and Megan Kealy took second and third with a 69.100 and a 68.300, respectively. 

Men’s

Individual Trampoline

The men’s individual trampoline podium was a close race. Uladzislau Hancharou of Belarus came in first place with a 61.445. Right behind him was Gao Lei of China, who scored a 61.380 and Andrey Yudin of Russia with a 60.945. Gao Lei holds the world title on this event every year since 2015, so Hancharou beating him was quite the accomplishment.

Synchronized Trampoline

Ryosuke Sakai and Daiki Kishi of Japan took first with their double duo, scoring a 52.380. Jason Burnett and Jérémy Chartier took second place for Canada with a 51.020, and right behind them were Mikita Fomchanka and Ivan Litvinovich with a 50.390, taking bronze for Belarus. 

Double Mini Trampoline

Double Mini Trampoline’s gold medalist, Mikhail Zalomin, won first place for Russia by a landslide. Zalomin scored a 79.000 for his routine, a full four points over second place’s score of a 75.000. Diogo Carvalho Costa took second with that score, and Alexander Renkert from the U.S. came not too far behind with a 74.200.

Tumbling

Unsurprisingly, Vadim Afanasev took first place—given his recent winning streak at a few competitions, this was pretty expected. He continued his pattern of placing first, scoring a 78.200, significantly ahead of second place. Rasmus Steffensen came behind Afanasev, scoring a 75.600 to place second for Denmark. Blake Grainger scored a 71.600 to take third, a significant point decrease as well.
