Results: Tokyo Cup 2011


China’s Huang Qiushuang took the All Around title at the Tokyo Cup in Japan this weekend, she was expected to do so once she kept it consistent and together.

Huang Qiushuang also claimed the World Cup title for 2011, she claimed another 50 points to her tally as a result of this win.  Each time a gymnast wins the All Around title at a World Cup event, they earn 50 points. The gymnast ranked 2nd receives 45 points and third receives 40 points,  as the places go on, it is reduced by 5 points each time. So easily to understand that the gymnast with the most points at the end of the World Cup series is the winner. In fact, gymnasts don’t have to have attended every World Cup event to win.

As expected Kohei Uchimura shone in the MAG competition, he beat Germany’s Philipp Boy to first place with Britain’s Daniel Purvis in third. Despite Purvis placing third, he claimed the World Cup Champion title for the Men.
