Bryony Page became the first British woman to win gold at the Trampoline Gymnastics World Championships, while China's Yan Langyu secured the men’s title in Baku.

Olympic bronze medallist Page was among the contenders to challenge defending champion Mori Hikaru of Japan at the Baku National Gymnastics Arena.

Page opted to restart her routine in the final, despite accruing a 0.4 deduction as a time penalty.

The decision proved justified after delivering 15.200 difficulty routine, with the judges rewarding her with a score of 56.235 points.

Mori and China’s Huang Yanfei had begun with the second-highest difficulty routines of 14.800, but their lower execution saw the pair miss out on the podium places.

China’s Cao Yunzhu finished as the runner-up to Page on a score of 55.815, while Iana Lebedeva from the Russian Gymnastics Federation (RGF) ended third on 55.800.

A successor to Gao Lei was crowned in the men's event, with the Chinese star electing not to participate and attempt to extend his streak of four consecutive world titles.

His compatriot Yan Langyu rose to the challenge with his execution score of 17.000 combining with a difficulty of 17.800.

Yan’s overall score of 61.825 points proved enough to seal gold, continuing China’s domination of the event which stretches back to 2006.

Japan’s Ryusei Nishioka finished as the runner-up, having begun the competition with the highest difficulty score of 18.900.

Nisioka's execution was marked as 15.500, leaving him in second place on a total of 60.620.

Bronze was earned by Aleh Rabtsau of Belarus, who finished in third place on 60.385.

Olympic champion Ivan Litvinovich, also from Belarus, had failed to qualify for the final.

Aleksandr Lisitsyn emerged as the winner of the men’s tumbling event, with the RGF athlete achieving a combined score of 80.000 across his two routines.

He finished clear of home favourite Mikhail Malkin, with the Azeri athlete finishing on 76.300 as the runner-up.

Bronze was secured by Kaden Brown, with the American scoring 75.400.

Sweden’s Lina Sjoeberg triumphed in the women’s competition with a combined score of 70.900.

Sjoeberg had placed third at the halfway mark, but an impressive second performance saw her rise to the top of the standings.

The United States' Shelby Nobuhara finished narrowly behind on 70.000 to win silver, followed by Spain’s Melania Rodriguez on 69.600.

The RGF were crowned as the all-around team winners, following strong performances across the eight disciplines at the World Championships.

The RGF team finished on a score of 29, with the US and Britain completing the top three on 28 and 26.
