Uzbekistan's Oksana Chusovitina is next in line. 

Perfect landing on her first attempt to score 14.350 on her first try and does even better on her second try, a 14.225 attempt and she sports a wide grin and blows a kiss to the cameras. 

Oksana currently leads the pack with an average of 14.287. 

15:26 (IST)23 AUG 2018

What has happened here? Pranati looked a bit rushed there, initially tried the somersault then twisted, didn't look too convincing as she walked off teary-eyed from the stage. A second attempt worth 12.575. 

An average of 12.625 for Pranati Nayak. 

15:23 (IST)23 AUG 2018

Oh, no! Pranati jumps, attempt a twisted somersault but does not get enough on it and lands on her stomach. 

Not a great first attempt that, as she scores 12.725 from that effort.

15:18 (IST)23 AUG 2018

Wow! What a comeback from Aruna! Executes the perfect jump, attempts a double twist and nails the landing! 

First attempt fetches Aruna Reddy an average of 12.775. 

15:14 (IST)23 AUG 2018

Aruna runs in with some speed but misses out on a grip and lands on her knees. Loses out on her timing, will hope to do better on her second try.
