Yuri van Gelder misses by val limit world CHAMPIONSHIP gymnastics by any chance

Yuri van Gelder has Saturday in its only chance not to know to qualify for the world cup gymnastics of October. Epke zonderland will be qualified to bridge on his second unit for the tournament in the Canadian Montreal.

Van Gelder, who last week, the first kwalificatiemoment spread in order to fully prepare for the second, got Saturday 14,225 points for his exercise on rings in Den Bosch. Thus he continued to be well below the CUP limit of 14.983.

“Waste”, regretted the 34-year-old Van Gelder in conversation with the AD, after his dismount, a big mistake made by fall.

“The qualities are still there. I felt stronger than during the preparation for the Olympic Games. So sour that I do. For now I’m still not going to stop with gymnastics.”

Van Gelder was the 2005 world champion on rings. Last year he was during the Olympic Games of Rio de Janeiro sent by the NOC*NSF after the final had been achieved.

The chance that coach Bram van Bokhoven Van Gelder still carry to the world cup is low. The other six gymnasts took during the kwalificatiemomenten of this and previous week limits and the coach makes next week the six-man selection known.

Zonderland will

In the first kwalificatiemoment last week assured the 31-year-old Frieze has been placement for the component poles. That part took hold of the olympic champion of 2012 Saturday, that the exercise carried out by which he hopes in October to become world champion, two times wrong.

Bram Verhofstad and Boudewijn de Vries qualified for the world cup. Verhofstad met the limit on the floor, while De Vries on voltige his world cup participation veiligstelde.
