A third gold medal of these Games for the twisting maestro who performs the most difficult routine of the men’s floor final to take the Commonwealth title.

Canada's Felix Dolci wins silver (14.166) and Jarman's compatriot Giarnni Regini-Moran bags bronze (13.966).

Women's vault - results

Georgia Godwin started where she left off yesterday, winning gold at Birmingham 2022. Winning her first ever Commonwealth Games gold medal yesterday in the all-around event, the 24 year old replicated the feat by claiming the title on vault.

It was a tight affair however as Godwin scored the same as Canada’s Laurie Denommee but due to the tie-break rule that states the gymnast with the highest vault score out of the two vaults wins.

Denommee landed her two vaults perfectly and added to her bronze medal from the team event on Saturday.

Shannon Archer, meanwhile, made history by becoming the first woman from Scotland to win a Commonwealth Games medal in artistic gymnastics, claiming bronze.

Men's pommel horse - results

Hometown lad Joe Fraser may not be able to compete on all pieces of apparatus due to a foot injury but that doesn’t stop the Brummie from rocking up to the Arena Birmingham, and taking on the less ankle-heavy events such as the pommel horse. Oh, and coming away with gold, matching the men’s team result on Friday. Fraser’s roar of delight was possibly even louder than the crowd’s when the score came up.

The big favourite from Northern Ireland, Rhys McClenaghan, was unable to perform to his optimum with some loss of leg form in his routine but his difficulty enabled him to claim a silver medal with a score of 14.133.

Canada’s Jayson Rampersad, who bagged silver in the team event, rounded out the podium.

Men's rings - results

Rings specialist, Courtney Tulloch, came for gold on his favourite apparatus and he won gold on his favourite apparatus, and in front of his home crowd to boot. The three-time world finalist on this apparatus also defended his Commonwealth Games title. Quite the day.

Another rings specialist and the highest qualifier, Sokratis Pilakouris of Cyprus performed to shouts of encouragement from his team-mates in the crowd, who helped him to a silver medal.

Canada's Chris Kaji was the first to congratulate Tulloch on his big score after overtaking the Vancouver native who had been in the lead. Kaji added bronze to his team's silver.
