Jimmy competed on Friday afternoon in the men's final. He started on vault with a solid Kasamatsu full for which he scored 13.766. He showed clean work on parallel bars and was rewarded with a 14.000. On the horizontal bar, he miraculously managed to stay on the apparatus after he lost direction on one of his pirouettes (12.466). He moved on to the floor where he had to make some adjustments on his landings (13.133).

Things were a little bit more complicated for him on pommel horse but he managed to stay on to score 12.300. He finished his competition on still rings with a solid routine for which he got 12.700. Overall he was happy to be back in an all-around final at this level and was pleased with his final. Jimmy placed 22nd with a total of 78.365.

Jade Vansteenkiste and Maellyse Brassart started their final on floor. They both showed solid routines which scored 12.533 and 12.100. They performed a full twisting Yurchenko on vault. Maellyse got 13.400 and Jade 13.366. They then moved on to the uneven bars, where several gymnasts had to count falls, Jade included. She fell on her Jaeger release and scored 11.966. Maellyse had to improvise a bit throughout her routine, but nevertheless scored 12.766. Jade had some troubles on beam too as she fell on her wolf turn. Maellyse delivered a good routine with a few balance checks to score 12.900.

Maellyse Brassart finished on the 12th place in this all-around final with a score of 51.166. Jade Vansteenkiste got 48.798 and ended on the 20th place. Not bad for a 15 year old newbie. She gained lots of experience for the future!
