India’s disappointing run at the 49th World Artistic Gymnastic Championships continued with none of the men gymnasts qualifying for the finals in both the all-around and individual events.

In the all-around qualification, Yogeshwar Singh was the best-placed Indian as he finished at the 92nd position after scoring 76.097, while Ashish Kumar (73.632) and Aditya Rana (73.098) ended at the 122nd and 128th spots, respectively. In the floor exercise qualification, Ashish (13.500), Aditya (13.000) and Yogeshwar (12.866) finished at the 77th, 125th and 136th spots, respectively.

In pommel horse qualification, Yogeshwar (12.700) finished at the 75th place, while Aditya (10.533) and Ashish (10.100) ended 173rd and 182nd, respectively. In the ring qualification, they finished outside the top-100. Ashish (12.766), Aditya (12.766) and Yogeshwar (12.266) ended at the 104th, 109th and 144th positions, respectively. The sorry state continued in the parallel bars qualification with Ashish (13.100), Aditya (13.066) and Yogeshwar (11.766) signing off at the 107th, 111th and 172nd spots, respectively.
