STORY SCRIPT:

Gymnastics’ Multi-discipline Team Event drew to a medal winning conclusion on Wednesday after four days of competition at Buenos Aires 2018.

It brought together the elite athletes from Gymnastics’ four main disciplines, Acrobatic, Artistic, rhythmic, and trampolining.

Gymnasts from all those disciplines were drawn into 12 teams of 13. The gymnasts competed as a multinational and multi-discipline team. Those teams were all named after an Olympic great of the sport of gymnastics.

The gold medal winners were Team Simone Biles, the US gymnast who set a record at Rio 2016 by winning four gymnastics golds in a single Games. As Biles was making history in Rio for Team USA, Max Whitlock was doing much the same for Team GB, winning five medals, including two golds. The team named in his honour won silver. Bronze went to Team Oksana Chusovitina. She made history at Rio 2016 by becoming the first gymnast to compete at seven successive Olympic Games.

For Team Simone Biles at Buenos Aires 2018 the gold medallists were:

From Acrobatic gymnastics, the Bulgarian pair of Mariela Kostradinova and Panayot Dimitrov.

From Artistic the male gymnasts were Ruan Lange of South Africa, Krisztian Balazs of Hungary, and Ukraine’s Nazar Chepurnyi. The female gymnasts were Tamara Ong from Singapore, Nhu Phuong of Vietnam and Spain’s Alba Petisco.

The rhythmic gymnasts were Talisa Torretti of Italy, Daria Trubnikova from Russia and Azerbaijan’s Luzan Yelyzaveta.
