October 14, 2019 – Croatia’s best gymnast Tin Srbic won the silver medal at the World Championships in the men’s horizontal bar final on the last day of the competition in Stuttgart, Germany. He even performed in the final with an injured wrist.
Namely, HRT reports that the 2017 World Champion in Montreal had to practice with a lower starting grade due to an injury, but with a very accurate performance, he earned a total score of 14,666 points, which was enough for the silver medal.
The world champion is Brazilian Arthur Mariano, who achieved a score of 14,900 points, while the bronze medal went to Russo Artur Dalaloyan (14,533), who also won the silver medal in the vault on Sunday.
After winning the silver medal in Stuttgart, young Croatian gymnast Tin Srbic won his fourth Croatian medal at the World Championships and his 11th at major international competitions.
Srbic also became the first Croatian gymnast with two medals at the World Championships. Recall, the Zagreb gymnast won the gold medal two years ago in Montreal, and now in Stuttgart, he’s booked the silver.
However, Srbic isn’t the only Croatian to take home a medal this weekend. Filip Ude celebrated the silver medal on the pommel horse, while Mario Moznik received a medal on the bars.
This is Ude’s second medal after the at the 2014 World Championships in Nanning, while Moznik won third in the same championship.
Let’s add that Srbic has won a total of eleven medals for Croatia at the Olympics, World and European Championships.
Namely, Croatia has received one medal at the Olympics and one silver thanks to Filip Ude in Beijing in 2008. Croatian gymnasts have won four medals at the World Championships and six at the European championships.
