Commonwealth Games – Nile Wilson and Ellie Black dazzle to win all-around titles at Gold Coast 2018

Nile Wilson claimed his second gold medal of the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games after edging out England team-mate James Hall in a dazzling men’s all-around final.

The England pair had gone into the final rotation with just 0.025 points separating them and Marios Georgiou of Cyprus also matching Wilson’s score.

All three performed fine high bar routines but it was Olympic medallist Wilson who came out on top with his score of 15.1.

This gave him a total score of 84.950 after the six apparatus, which meant that he won his second gold medal of the Games following his success in the team competition.

Hall finished with a score of 83.975 points, while Georgiou – who was the leader for most of the event – ended the competition with the bronze medal on 83.750 points.

Wilson said: “It’s incredible for it to come down to the wire with the three of us all in the mix – you can’t write it.”

“And to finish like we did, and get gold and silver, with one of the best high bar routines I’ve put together, it’s the best feeling.

“I smiled my way through it and hit the bar routine I knew I could. It’s a great feeling to have another Commonwealth Games gold medal round my neck.”

Wilson has more opportunities to add to his gold medal haul in the individual apparatus finals, where he will once again go head to head with Hall in the parallel bars and high bar final.

In the women’s event Ellie Black of Canada won the women’s final.

Black, a silver medallist at last year’s World Championships finished with a score of 54.200 to beat Australia’s Georgia Godwin by 0.400.

England’s Alice Kinsella earned bronze.
