China won two more gold medals in apparatus finals as the 17th Asian Games ended Thursday in Incheon, Korea.

Yao Jinnan won women's floor exercise and Zou Kai won high bar to take back to China, which plays host to the upcoming world championships.

Yao's gold medal on floor exercise was her fourth in Incheon, after victories in the team competition, all-around and uneven bars. Yao tumbled a double pike; 1 1/2 to 2 1/2, triple twist to stag jump; and a double tuck.

All-around runner-up Shang Chansong took second with a more ambitious routine (tucked full-in; 1 1/2 to triple twist, punch front; 2 1/2 punch pike; double pike). Korea's Yun Na Rae, third in the all-around, took another bronze in the floor final.

In the women's balance beam final, Shang nailed the content of her routine (ff ff two-foot layout; front aerial, sheep jump; ff layout; punch front, wolf jump, Korbut; double turn; switch leap, back tuck) before falling on her triple twist dismount.

North Korea's Kim Un Hyang won the gold medal with a beautiful and difficult routine, highlighted by a roundoff, layout full twist. Vietnam's Phan Thi Ha Thanh, third in Wednesday's vault final, took a surprise silver medal over Shang with an elegant routine.

Shek Wai Hung earned the upset of the competition, defeating world and Olympic champion Yang Hak Seon for the gold medal on men's vault. Shek vaulted a clean Dragulescu and triple-twisting Tsukahara to win by a tiny margin, 15.216-15.200.

"It was totally beyond my expectations - beating an Olympic champion here," said Shek, who went up first in the lineup. "It is a great moment to treasure."

Yang had been expected to battle North Korea's Ri Se Gwang, the top qualifier, for the gold medal. Yang, suffering from a hamstring injury, did not perform his namesake vault (triple-twisting layout handspring front) and stepped over the line on his layout Randi to place second. Ri crashed his piked Dragulescu, nearly landing on his face, but landed his full-twisting Tsukahara double back well. With both ankles heavily taped, Ri limped off the podium and finished out of the medals.

Yang said the hamstring injury prevented him from competing his second vault, a Tsukahara with 3 1/2 twists.

"It still hurts when I squat or sit in a chair," Yang said of his injury. "My leg was hurting, but fortunately, I was able to compete at the end. I tried to do the 'Yang 2' in my second attempt and I had the will. But my body wouldn't allow it."

Men's all-around champion Yuya Kamoto won parallel bars, bringing the Japanese men their fourth gold medal in Incheon.

Zou finished strong to win the high bar gold medal over Japan's Yusuke Saito and Masayoshi Yamamoto. Zou, China's most decorated Olympian in any sport, also won men's floor exercise on Wednesday. He is an alternate for the host team at the world championships, which begin Oct. 3 in Nanning.

The 2018 Asian Games take place in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Chinese Take Three Golds at Asian Games
(2 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

Chinese gymnasts won three of five gold medals in Wednesday's apparatus finals at the 17th Asian Games in Incheon, Korea.

Women's all-around champion Yao Jinnan nailed her uneven bars routine (Komova II to Pak salto to immediate Stalder-Shaposhnikova-half; inverted pirouette to 1 1/2 to Tkatchev; double layout), winning by more than a point over teammate Huang Huidan.

Huang, the reigning world champion, had to settle for second after two breaks on her pirouettes, though she showed a new dismount of front giant to half-in, back out.

Five-time Olympic champion Zou Kai won floor exercise, the first gold medal for the Chinese men in Incheon. Zou — who won floor exercise at the 2006 Asian Games but was left off the team in 2010 — hit his routine cleanly (Randi; layout double-double; front double full, layout front full; 2 1/2 to Rudi; tucked double-double dismount) but said he can do better.

"I'm not very satisfied with my performance today," said Zou, who only returned to training a few months ago after getting married. "I could have done better, but I'm a little bit nervous. I managed to hit it and I shouldn't ask for more."

All-around runner-up Masayoshi Yamamoto (Japan) won pommel horse, while Liao Junlin brought a third gold medal for China with his victory on still rings.

2008 Olympic vault champion Hong Un Jong won the women's vault title, performing Amanar and Cheng vaults. Six-time Olympian Oksana Chusovitina (Uzbekistan) won the silver, her seventh Asian Games medal, over world bronze medalist Phan Thi Ha Thanh (Vietnam).

Competition concludes Thursday with the second day of apparatus finals.

Yao, Kamoto Win Asian Games All-Around
(7 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

China's Yao Jinnan and Japan's Yuya Kamoto captured the all-around titles on Tuesday as the 17th Asian Games in Incheon, Korea.

China's Yao Jinnan and Japan's Yuya Kamoto captured the all-around titles on Tuesday as the 17th Asian Games in Incheon, Korea.

The third day of competition in Incheon brought more success to the Chinese women and Japanese men, who went 1-2 in the all-around finals to go with the team titles.

Yao continued China's success streak in the women's all-around, defending the title won by Sui Lu four years ago in Guangzhou. Yao scored 57.900 to top teammate Shang Chunsong (56.950) and the Republic of Korea's Yun Na Rae (55.000).

Despite winning her second gold medal, Yao said she hopes to show a better performance at the upcoming world championships in Nanning, China.

"Today I was a little bit nervous," Yao said. "I especially made some mistakes that I shouldn't have had to make. I am sorry that I didn't show my best performance."

On the men's side, Kamoto snapped China's 36-year gold-medal streak in the men's all-around. Kamoto became the first non-Chinese gymnast to take the overall title since his compatriot Kazuo Horide won the 1974 Asian Games in Tehran, Iran.

Kamoto grabbed the early lead with a strong performance on floor, ending with a triple twist. After struggling on pommel horse, Kamoto fell behind teammate Masayoshi Yamamoto for most of the competition. Kamoto, the 2010 Youth Olympic champion, impressed on parallel bars for 15.500 to put him back on top and take the title ahead of Yamamoto and Korea's Lee Sang Wook

"Winning these events have been my goal ever since I was selected as a national team member, so I feel like a load has been lifted from my mind," Kamoto said. "I focused on the competition the whole time."

Lee said he was surprised but happy to bring another bronze for the host nation.

"I never thought that I could earn a medal because the Chinese and Japanese gymnasts are really good, and I'm a little old in the squad," Lee said. "I just tried to not to make mistakes and I give 150 percent effort."

China's Huang Yuguo finished fourth ahead of teammate Yang Shengchao.

"I didn't feel comfortable when I was performing," Huang said. "I think it's because of mistakes on pommel horse early on."

Competition continues Wednesday with the first day of apparatus finals.

Chinese Women Win 11th Straight Asian Games
(3 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

The Chinese women's team won its 11th consecutive title as competition continued Monday at the 17th Asian Games in Incheon, Korea. Pictured, left to right: Huang Huidan, Yao Jinnan, Bai Yawen, Tan Jiaxin, Chen Siyi and Shang Chunsong

The Chinese women's team won its 11th consecutive title as competition continued Monday at the 17th Asian Games in Incheon, Korea.

2012 Olympian Yao Jinnan led China to a blow victory, topping second-place North Korea by nearly 15 points. Japan finished third, just three tenths behind North Korea.

China sent its top team to Incheon, using the competition as a final warmup to the world championships that begin Oct. 3 in Nanning.

Yao topped teammates Shang Chunsong and Chen Siyi in the all-around qualification, though only two gymnasts per country can advance to any final. The Chinese women earned at least the three highest scores on every event but vault. On uneven bars, all five Chinese gymnasts outscored their rivals.

Yao had the highest score on uneven bars, edging world champion teammate Huang Huidan. Shang led qualification on balance beam and floor exercise.

2008 Olympic champion Hong Un Jong (North Korea) was the top gymnast on vault, leading Uzbekistan's Oksana Chusovitina. India's Dipa Karmakar qualified third, despite a botched landing on her attempt at a handspring double front (7.0 Difficulty).

Competition continues Tuesday with the all-around finals for men and women.

Japan Shines As Asian Games Begin
(6 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

Yuya Kamoto led the Japanese men to a solid team victory on Sunday as gymnastics began at the 17th Asian Games in Incheon, Korea.

The Japanese men snatched the team gold medal on Sunday as gymnastics began at the 17th Asian Games in Incheon, Korea.

Yuya Kamoto, the 2010 Youth Olympic Games all-around champion, led his Japanese team to a solid victory over the host Korean team and defending champion China. Japan outscored Korea, 355.475-350.875. The Chinese team finished less than a point behind Korea, scoring 350.300.

The Japanese had the top team totals on floor exercise (tied with China), pommel horse, still rings and high bar. Korea had the best score on men's vault, while North Korea, fourth as a team, was the top team on parallel bars.

Both Japan and China sent their B squads, to save their top stars for the upcoming world championships in Nanning. The host Korean team sent its first-rate team, led by world and Olympic vault champion Yang Hak Seon.

The Japanese men had the top three spots in the individual all-around qualification, though only two gymnasts per nation can advance. Kamoto scored 88.850, followed by Masayoshi Yamamoto (87.950) and Yusuke Saito (87.925). Korea's Park Min Soo was the third qualifier with 87.600.

Japan also had topped the qualification on half of the events. Shotaro Shirai – older brother of world champion Kenzo Shirai – topped five-time Olympic champion Zou Kai (China) for the top score on floor exercise.

Tomomasa Hasegawa qualified first on pommel horse with 15.500, and Kamoto was the top scorer on parallel bars with 15.925.

China's Liao Junlin led qualification on still rings (15.450) and Zou was once again on top on high bar (15.350).

North Korea's star vaulter Ri Se Gwang topped continental rival Yang Hak Seon on vault. Yang, rumored to be suffering from a sore hamstring, did not attempt his namesake vault (triple-twisting layout handspring front) and qualified second.

Competition continues Monday with the women's team and individual qualification.
