STORY SCRIPT:

Japan’s Kitazono Takeru won gold in a tense Men’s All-Around Artistic Gymnastics competition at Youth Olympic Games Buenos Aires 2018.

The 15-year-old pipped his rivals thanks to a final impressive routine on the  horizontal bar, holding his nerve for overall victory. His score from the judges for the discipline of 13.800 was easily the best of the night.

He had earlier also outscored the rest of the field with his floor routine, the pre-competition favourite Yin Dehang of China, making costly mistakes on the mat.

He was also the top rated gymnast in the rings, earning a score of 13.466. Crucially the eventual silver medallist Sergei Nadin trailed him by some margin in those disciplines.

Takeru did enough to claim gold in the remaining disciplines of Pommel Horse, Vault and Parallel Bars, even though he fell on dismount. He may well now add to that with success later in the week in the finals of the individual disciplines.

Nadin settled for silver. The bronze medal went to Diogo Soares of Brazil.
