Artistic Gymnastics World Championships: Schedule and BBC coverage guide – BBC News


Becky Downie was left out of Great Britain’s team for the Tokyo Olympics

The BBC’s coverage on TV, iPlayer, the Red Button and the BBC Sport website and app starts on 21 October.

Olympic champion Max Whitlock and the British team that competed at the Tokyo Games are all resting.

But Becky Downie, the 2019 bars world silver medallist, will be eager to impress after missing out on Tokyo.

Downie, 29, will compete in Kitakyushu alongside Commonwealth champion Georgia-Mae Fenton and 16-year-old Ruby Stacey in the women’s events.

The six-strong men’s team features four-time European medallist Courtney Tulloch, 2016 Olympian Brinn Bevan, 2018 European floor champion Dom Cunningham and the current British all-around champion Joshua Nathan.

They are joined by major championship debutants Hayden Skinner and Joe Cemlyn-Jones.

World Championships do not usually take place in Olympic years but last year’s event was postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Gymnasts will compete for all-around and individual apparatus titles but there is no team event this year.

Great Britain squad

Men: Brinn Bevan, Dom Cunningham, Courtney Tulloch, Joshua Nathan Hayden Skinner and Joe Cemlyn-Jones.
