Courtney Tulloch and Georgia-Mae Fenton have clinched Team England’s second and third gold medals of Day 4 and the first golds in the gymnastics arena of the day in the men’s rings and women’s uneven bars, respectively. Nile Wilson was able to complete a perfect outing for the men by securing the silver medal.
Tulloch and Wilson, who were a part of the victorious men’s gymnastics team on the first outing at the Gold Coast, were strong favourites coming into the event, and they performed superbly on the rings with respective scores of 14.833 and 14.4.
This result follows Day 3’s double one-two finish for England in the men’s all-around gymnastics, where Wilson took gold, and another one-two in the swimming pool.
Courtney said: "That was one of my best routines and I've still got more to book in, and I know I can score higher than that so I can keep on improving.
"We push each other. We're a young team, Max leading it, we all look up to him, he's an amazing gymnast but to have Nile, James, Dom - we've all got good chemistry and it's amazing to be a part of them.
"It obviously didn't go to plan with some of the pieces, but I knew I just had to go out and do my thing."
Nile said: "Very happy to get the silver medal, exhausted today and just pushing through, it's just amazing to be out on that stage doing the sport that I love, and very, very pleased to get silver, and to Courtney, he's a massive inspiration, to be stood next to him pushing his tail is amazing.
"Just doing a clean parallel bar routine and clean horizontal bar routine, I'm sure I'll start by using my execution on putting together some of the routines I have done this week and there's no reason why I can't make history this week.
"We're hungry, every major we don't come to a major just to show up, we want to dominate, we want to be on top of the podium and hopefully we can do that."
Fenton provided the shock of the morning as she despatched of some tough competition on the uneven bars to claim a gold to continue the gymnastics team’s successes of late. The 17-year-old’s exquisite execution set her above from the rest, setting the highest score in the final with 8.7 along with the joint-highest difficulty (5.9).
Georgia-Mae said: “I think just staying calm and knowing that I can do it. Not overthinking anything. Just doing what I know to do. I guess it pulled off.
“Euro’s wasn’t the best. I didn’t get to compete. I’ve just been working really hard in the gym and it feel great to be out competing on the international stage.”
Despite Wilson’s disappointing finish in the early hours of the morning on the floor, he bounced back in emphatic fashion to take his third medal of the Games, with a silver.
The quick flurry of medals in the gymnastics follows on from Max Whitlock’s narrow silver medal-worthy performance on the pommel horse earlier in the day.
