American gymnasts Simone Biles and Jade Carey took first and second place respectively on vault at the current World championships' event finals.

Both gymnasts went for the same vaults, Cheng (D:6) and Amanar (D:5.8). This is Biles 23rd medal at World championships and her second World title on vault. 

Carey was the silver medalist on the event at the 2017 World championships. It is worth mentioning that Carey topped Biles on the event during the qualifications.

British Elissa Downie took the bronze medal, which is her first individual medal at a World championships.

Downie competed a double twisting Yurchenko (5.4) and a Cheng. Canada's Shallon Olsen, who won silver at last year's Worlds, finished in fourth place.

Alexa Moreno, who became the first female Mexican gymnast to win a medal at a World championships last year on vault, came in 6th place.

China's Qi Qi got 5th place and Russia's Lilia Akhiamova got 7th. 

 South Korea's Yeo Seojeong had a fall on her handspring double twist attempt thus finishing last. Earlier this year, Seojeong became the first female gymnast to land the vault.
