Nina Derwael, who became the first Belgian gymnast to win a gold medal at a World championships last year, successfully defended her title on bars today at Stuttgart's event finals.

British gymnast Becky Downie, who was the second competitor on bars, was in gold medal position up until she got outscored by the Belgium gymnast at the end of the competition.

This is Downie's first individual medal at World championships. She was part of the bronze medal winning GB team at 2015 Worlds. She is also the 2014 and 2016 European champion on the uneven bars.

After a rough all around competition, US Sunisa Lee managed to take third place. Teammate Simone Biles came in 5th. 

Russian gymnasts Angelina Melniova and Daria Spiridonova finished in 4th and 6th places respectively.

Liu Tingting of China had a 7th place finish while Elisabeth Seitz of Germany finished last after a fall on her pak salto transition.
