With this score, Pranati finished behind South Korea’s Yeo Seo-Jeong (14.084) and Shoko Miyata (13.884) of Japan, who claimed gold and silver, respectively.

This is Pranati’s second medal in the Asian Championships, adding to the bronze she won in the 2019 edition in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.

She thus became the first Indian gymnast to win two medals in the Continental Championships. Ashish Kumar had won a bronze medal in the floor exercise in 2006 in Surat while Dipa Karmakar, who finished fourth in the Rio Olympic Games, claimed a bronze in 2015 in Hiroshima, Japan, making it four medals in all in the Asian Championships.

With this, Pranati also qualified for the World Artistic Gymnastics Championships to be held in Liverpool, UK, in October-November this year.

India have sent an eight-member contingent – four men and four women – to participate in the 9th Asian championships.
