Munich – Kim Bui was irritated that she was separated from her team. Because the German gymnast was third in the all-around on Thursday for a long time, she had to sit on a sofa in the middle of the hall for the leaders. In the end she was eighth. "At least," said the 33-year-old, "I had a good time."



Munich – Kim Bui was irritated that she was separated from her team.

Because the German gymnast was third in the all-around on Thursday for a long time, she had to sit on a sofa in the middle of the hall for the leaders.

In the end she was eighth.

"At least," said the 33-year-old, "I had a good time."

She would have preferred to sit at the top of the ranks - with Elisabeth Seitz, Pauline Schäfer-Betz, Emma Malewski and Sarah Voss.

The five women grew into a team that qualified fourth for the final of the top eight (Saturday).

One can speculate on bronze.

One feels inspired by “the media attention”, says Sarah Voss.

Colleague Elisabeth Seitz thinks that everything is going so well that nothing needs to be changed: “Drink coffee together – or tea.

And then team meeting.”

18-year-old Emma Malewski, who reached the final on the balance beam and is likely to be one of the favorites, looks like she has stepped into the wonderland of great sport.

She also gets intoxicated by watching the other gymnasts: "I soak up the atmosphere and imagine how I would perform the elements that I see others doing." Pauline Schäfer-Betz is also in the beam final with Malewski (all Individual devices will be decided on Sunday) withdrawn - just now, in last place.

"But I'm known for the fact that I like to make it exciting." She was already a world champion.

On the uneven bars, Kim Bui grabs a career strike and Elisabeth Seitz for medals.

Seitz: “There are many around 14.1 points.

It will be short and interesting.” (GÜNTER KLEIN)
