Alice Kinsella clinched gold in the women’s balance beam final, with Kelly Simm taking bronze in another fantastic outing for the women’s team in the gymnasium, as Kinsella’s triumph was Team England’s first gold of Day 5.
After a beautiful routine, Simm found herself in the lead with a score of 13.033, but 17-year-old Kinsella, who was a part of the women’s artistic gymnastics team that claimed silver in the all-around competition along with Simm, blew the competition away with a resounding score of 13.7.
Simm was unlucky not to find herself second highest on the podium, as the final competitor, Australia’s Georgia Rose-Brown snuck in to snatch second from her despite a less difficult routine.
Across the Coomera arena, Nile Wilson collected his fourth medal of the Games with a superb routine in the parallel bars that was enough for him to claim silver, losing out on execution after finishing with the same score as Cypriot Marios Georgiou. James Hall was unfortunately pushed out of the podium following the final few competitors posting a higher score, finishing fifth.
Earlier in the day, Courtney Tulloch continued his equally impressive Gold Coast campaign as he collected silver after a perfect 15.000 score in his second routine on the vault, with Dom Cunningham also taking bronze.
