Shek wins gymnastics bronze

Shek wins gymnastics bronze

Hong Kong gymnast Stone Shek Wai-hung won a bronze medal in the Men’s Vault event at the 2023 Artistic Gymnastics World Cup at Cottbus, Germany, on Sunday.
In his first attempt, Shek conducted a Tsukahara full-twisting double tuck, which is valued at six points in difficulty.

Shek got 8.766 in execution as he lost 0.1 point due to his left foot stepping out of the border, making his total score 14.766 points.

He then finished a Dragulescu half-twisting, valued at 5.6 in difficulty, with just a step back, winning 14.7 points in total in the second attempt.

Shek got 14.733 points on average across his two attempts, just 0.25 points higher than Artem Dolgopyat, the Israeli gymnast who came fourth.

“ Did my best in the two attempts today and I did not care about the scores at all. I am happy to get back to the podium again,” Shek said.

The gold and silver medals were grabbed by Artur Davtyan from Armenia at 15.133 points and Mahdi Olfati from Iran at 14.983 points.

The Artistic Gymnastics World Cup is a competition series organized by the International Gymnastics Federation.

The next competition of the 2023 event is in Doha, Qatar, tomorrow.

This is the first time Shek has won a medal at an international event for four years.

Shek was last awarded a medal at the Artistic Gymnastics World Cup in Slovenia in June 2019, where he won a gold medal in vault.

He then won seventh place in the World Artistic Gymnastics Championships in Stuttgart, Germany, in July 2019, which brought him to the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

But he suffered from a ligament rupture in his ankles after the first round of the Olympic Games, which was postponed to 2021, and failed to qualify for the next round.

Shek is expected to represent Hong Kong in the Asian Games in Hangzhou in September.
