Satyajit Mondal, with a score of 13.475, finished ninth in the men’s vault qualification round. Mondal will be the first reserve for the final, which means that if any of the top-eight are unable to compete in the final, Mondal will replace that gymnast.
Saif Tamboli finished joint-eighth with Australian Tyson Bull in the parallel bars qualification with a score of 14.050. However, since Bull had the higher execution score of 8.650 as compared to Tamboli’s 8.250, he qualified for the final while the Indian has been kept as first reserve.
Both, men’s vault and men’s parallel bars finals are scheduled to be held on August 2.
In the overall men’s team standings, India finished eighth out of 11. Host nation England took the gold while the silver and bronze medals were won by Canada and Cyprus, respectively.
India has won a total of three medals in gymnastics at the Commonwealth Games. Ashish Kumar won a silver in pole vault and bronze in floor exercise at the 2010 edition in New Delhi. Four years later, Dipa Karmakar clinched a bronze in the women’s pole vault in Glasgow.
