They started on vault. Maxime Gentges had to wait for at least 10 minutes before going because of a technical issue with the scoreboard. Not an ideal way to start a competition... He did a front handspring double somersault and sat it. He got 12.866. Daan Kenis performed a Yurchenko two and a half twist. He got 14.300. On parallel bars, both Maxime and Daan got a bit off balance on one of their elements but managed to save it. It were clean routines otherwise. Maxime got 12.900 and Daan received 13.533.

On high bar, Maxime and Daan stayed on the apparatus, had great releases but had bent arms at some point which is a costly deduction. Daan got 12.500 and Maxime got 12.700. Great routine from Daan on floor, with lots of difficulty. Just a couple mistakes on the landings. He scored 13.533. Maxime was super clean, paying attention to details and landings. He scored 13.600.

On pommel horse, Daan started off well, but then, his legs touched the pommels and he got off. He finished strong, scoring 12.466. Maxime had a leg separation but was clean otherwise (13.200). Finishing on rings, both Belgians had good routines. Maxime almost stuck his double piked dismount (13.200). Daan finished strong too.

With a total score of 79.232, Daan Kenis is 16th, while Maxime Gentges placed 19th with 78.499.
