According to Dohagym.com; Uchimura had to endure another disappointing evening at the 11th FIG Artistic Individual Apparatus World Cup here at the Aspire Dome on Thursday.
The six-time all-around champion failed to cross the hurdle in the men’s vault and horizontal qualification rounds. In the first event, the 28-year-old, widely regarded as one of the best in his era, finished 10th with 14.100 points. Ukraine’s Igor Radivilov and Chinese duo Huang Mingqi and Qu Ruiyang took the first three positions.

“I will check all the footages of my performances when I get back to Japan. I need to work on my weaknesses,” Uchimura told www.dohagym.com. “Training was excellent, but I wasn’t in the best of my mood.”

Eight top competitors will battle for the podium finish in the finals. Uchimura, who missed out on his seventh consecutive world title last year in Montreal, Canada, came a cropper in the horizontal bar, where he ended up 10th. Ironically, China’s Xiao Ruoteng, who succeeded him in Montreal, topped the chart followed by Edgar Boulet (France) and compatriot Deng Shudi.
France duo Melanie de Jesus and Marine Boyer grabbed the first two qualification spots followed by Belgium’s Nina Derwael in the women’s balance beam.
Japanese duo Yuki Uchiyama and Nagi Kajita also made it to the finals. Uzbekistan’s veteran gymnast Oksana Chusovitina, who had qualified for the vault final on Wednesday, came 12th.
Great Britain’s Taeja James stormed into the finals with an effort of 13.533 points followed by Rune Hermans (Belgium), Elisa Meneghini (Italy), Nagi Kajita (Japan), Liu Jinru (China), Lara Mori (Italy), Kim Su Jong (PRK) and Marine Boyer (France).
