British champion Alice Kinsella claimed silver, while Romania’s Sabrina Maneca-Voinea sealed bronze.

In the men’s vault, defending champion Jake Jarman took the silver medal in Antalya, Turkey.

The 21-year-old Briton was narrowly beaten to gold by Artur Davtyan of Armenia on after two vault attempts each.

Davtyan, 30, scored 15.033 points overall compared with Jarman’s 15.016 thanks to a higher mark for execution on his second vault.
