The Scottish gymnasts currently sit in 2nd place with a score of 127.240, behind England. Scotland’s women were also in action and at the half way stage they sit in 6th place with a score of 77.497. They will be aiming to beat the top five finish achieved in Delhi 2010.
In the Individual finals, Team Scotland will be aiming for medals after three men and one women qualified for the Individual Apparatus finals later in the week.
In the Men’s Artistic Individual All Around Competition, Scotland are looking strong to have representation in the All-Around final. Daniel Keatings currently sits in 2nd with a score of 43.399, while Daniel Purvis sits in 5th place with a score of 42.200.
Scotland are also aiming to have representation in the Women’s Artistic Individual All-Around final, with gymnasts currently sitting in 11th and 16th place.
Emma White qualified for the Vault Final on Thursday and, with more qualifying spots for Individual Apparatus finals up for grabs tomorrow, Scotland will be looking to send more men and women into the finals later in the week.
