The uneven bars final was litterally a battle of the Belgians with our three best gymnasts all competing there. And Laura Waem successfully won the gold medal and redeemed herself after a rough day on Saturday. With a great score of 14.550, she placed 1st ahead of Nina Derwael (14.200) and Senna Deriks (14.150). Rune Hermans tied for 4th place with 13.850. Cindy Vandenhole seemed to have had a mistake there and placed 7th (13.300).
