This afternoon the Men’s Individual All-Around Gymnastics competition was highly competitive. The favourite, Englishman Max Whitlock, proved he was the best with a winning score of 90.631 which was 2.333 above Daniel Keatings score. Young Englishman Nile Wilson came third with only 0.333 of a point between him and second-placed Keatings. All three medallists deserved their rewards by putting on exceptionally fine displays.
The women’s Flyweight Boxing quarter finals took place at the same time as the gymnastics. English boxer Nicola Adams overcame E. de Silva in a four round contest. I’m not a fan of boxing, but I have to admire the guts of those who engage in the sport, but punching an opponent for fun is nonsensical to me. To see women doing it, truly amazes me.
