Jessica Gadirova retains European title in women’s floor exercise

Great Britain‘s Jessica Gadirova clinched her second successive European title in the women’s artistic gymnastics floor final with a stunning routine at the 2022 Championships in Munich.

The 17-year-old was last up on the floor after previously competing in an injury-disrupted vault final and lit up the arena with a 14.000-worthy routine to take the title.

Gadirova nailed difficult acrobatic elements such as a double-twisting double back somersault and double straight back somersault, edging Italy’s Martina Maggio by the finest of margins.

Maggio finished just 0.067 points behind Gadirova in the silver medal position, while the bronze medal went to Angela Andreoli with a total score of 13.866.

The champion’s twin sister Jennifer Gadirova also went for broke in the floor final, but Jessica Gadirova packed in more difficult elements as her compatriot finished fifth with 13.466.

Jessica Gadirova’s gold represented GB’s second artistic gymnastics medal of the day after Ondine Achampong took the silver in the beam competition.
