Men's Team Finals

The Chinese team was dominant as ever in Artistic Gymnastics and wrapped up the team event in style. They were 5.1 points clear of their nearest team in Japan. The Chinese came first in 4 of the 6 events and were placed in 2nd position in the other two events.

China took Gold with an overall score of 261.750. They recorded an amazing 46.250 points in Parallel bars and came with a strong score of 44.250 on Pommel Horse one of the most difficult events. In the Horizontal bar, their score was 43.500, Rings 43.400. In the Vault, surprisingly, they scored 42.600 and were even worse on the Floor scoring 41.550.

Japan took the Silver medal with a score of 256.650. They scored 42.800 in Vault and 42.000 on Floor to claim the first position in both the events. They came second in Parallel Bar, Horizontal Bar, and Pommel Horse. They were placed as the third best team in the Rings.

The South Korean team took the Bronze medal with an overall score of 245.200. They came second in the Rings, third in Parallel Bars, Floor and the Horizontal Bar. They were placed 6th in Rings and 9th in the Vault.

The Indians had a disastrous campaign ending 9th with an overall score of 229.950. Their best performance came in Parallel Bars were they were placed 6th overall. They finished in 8th position in the Rings and Vault. Took the 9th spot in Horizontal Bar, 10th in the Floor and 11th in the Pommel Horse. What would be disheartening for the Indians is that they were unable to qualify in any of the individual events and also their two best and most experienced gymnasts, Rakesh Patra and Ashish Kumar put on a below-average performance?

The Indian's would be a force to reckon with if they can execute their routine properly with minimal errors and ensure that their execution points are in the range of 7.500 - 8.000 with the difficulty level between 5.0 to 6.0 in all six disciplines, when they compete in their next International event. The young Indian Gymnasts are bound to do better with experience and would return to improve during the next games in 2022.
