Brazil's Rebeca Andrade added the world vault title to her Olympic gold medal on the apparatus with a commanding performance at the Artistic Gymnastics World Championships in Kitakyushu.

The 25-year-old from São Paulo, who became the first female gymnast from her country to win an Olympic medal at Tokyo 2020, topped the standings in the final with a score of 14.966 points.

Andrade, silver medallist in the all-around event at the Games in the Japanese capital, finished comfortably clear of Asia D'Amato of Italy in second at the Kitakyushu General Gymnasium.

D'Amato took the silver medal on 14.083 points, while recently-crowned world all-around champion Angelika Melnikova of the Russian Gymnastics Federation won bronze on 13.966.

Andrade was denied a second gold medal on the opening day of apparatus finals as she was pipped to the world uneven bars crown by China's Wei Xiaoyuan.

Wei earned a total of 14.733 points to edge out Andrade by 0.100, with bronze going to Wei's compatriot Luo Rui on the same score as the Brazilian.

Stephen Nedoroscik became the first American to win the men's pommel horse event at the World Championships after producing a routine which yielded a score of 15.266 points.

Nedoroscik, competing in his first World Championships, finished more than three-tenths of a point ahead of joint silver medallists Weng Hao of China and Kaya Kazuma of Japan.

The American received 15.266 points, with Weng and Kazuma both scoring 14.900.

Lan Xingyu added another victory for China by winning the rings title with a total of 15.200.

Lan, part of a second-tier Chinese team competing at the event in the Japanese city, ended the competition clear of Italy's Marco Lodadio, who earned 14.866.

Lodadio's compatriot Salvatore Maresca and the RGF's Grigorii Klimentev claimed the bronze medal on 14.833 points.

Nicola Bartolini of Italy secured the men's floor honours on 14.800, narrowly beating Kazuki Minami of Japan's 14.766 points.

Emil Soravuo clinched a rare medal for Finland by sealing bronze on 14.700.
