Day 8 Preview – Nanjing 2014 Youth Olympics

23 August 2014 / 16:34

Ellie Downie and Giarnni Regini-Moran are gearing up for another big day of gymnastics finals at the Nanjing Youth Olympic Games (YOG) after a double medal success on Saturday.


Downie, who won silver in the women’s vault today, will try to add to her two Nanjing 2014 medals when she competes in tomorrow’s balance beam and floor finals.


“The all-around gave me a big confidence boost and really helped going into the vault today,” said the 15-year-old.


“I am hoping to medal on floor as well and the beam I am just going to see how it goes and enjoy it.”


Regini-Moran has a busy Sunday in store as the double YOG gold medallist is set to compete in three finals across the men’s vault, parallel bars and horizontal bar.


Hanna Brant will be hoping the wind out on the Jinniu Lake picks up after two suspended days of sailing in order to complete her final race of the women’s single dinghy competition.


Medals will also be decided in the equestrian with Jake Saywell sitting joint 11th overnight, as well as the men’s modern pentathlon where Team GB’s Henry Choong will look to impress in the swimming - his strongest event.


Elsewhere, the men’s boxing action continues with further preliminary bouts for Muhammad Ali, Peter McGrail and Viddal Riley, while Bryony Pitman competes in archery’s mixed international team event.
