Gymnastics WB in Cottbus

Gymnast Maellyse Brassart took bronze on the uneven bars at the World Cup in Cottbus. That keeps her in the running for a ticket to the Olympic Games.

The gold medal went to the Algerian-French Kaylia Nemour in the Lausitz Arena in Cottbus. The child prodigy increased her difficulty rating to 7.0 – unprecedented! – and got 15,433. That equals her record from the qualifications, when she had a D score of 6.9.

The silver went to Belarusian Alena Tsitavets (16), who played at a World Cup for the first time and did so under a neutral flag, given the war in Ukraine. Zkj got 14,100 (6.2).

Maellyse Brassart (22) came last and performed neatly through her exercise. She got 13,700 (5.7). That was good for third place and the second most points for the Olympic ranking, because Nemour has already qualified.

Last week in Cairo, Brassart’s bridge exercise went completely wrong, which meant she did not score any points for the Olympic ranking. Not a disaster, because only three results from four World Cups count, but the Walloon has already lost her joker.

On Sunday, Nina Derwael and Erika Pinxten will be in action in Cottbus, in the beam final.
