these races and finally the russian artistic gymnastics team have been honored on the return to moscow but the country sports chiefs are recent concerns about the judging at the recent world championships in tokyo where she finished third but was behind china the united states among. the story. only thirty three thousands of a point separated russia's viktoria call from the american world champion jordan weaver that seniors were flowing out of despair after the judges awarded her just enough to win a silver medal in the women's all around final the three time junior olympic champion calma already had his senior world championship medal at this event in an even bores and she achieved that feat despite not being in salt shape after an injury is expected to be one hundred percent at the olympics since one hundred twelve weeks or a coma will present a real threat for the rest of the competition. we still have a lot of work to do on our basic skills and flawless execution but we did really
well overall and all of us are ready for lunch and men's team captain anton gold suits golf was quite happy with his partner's performance after all four out of seven gymnasts were experiencing a major senior event for the first time he won an individual silver medal in the vault while russia only managed a fourth place in the same event however on dawn feels that the guys were robbed of a bronze world championship medal which. we did great and i think our performance deserved a bronze medal but the judge's decision was unfair it will be different at the olympics where the judges will not be able to take away points from our so blatantly. russia's national team coach under the or do you want to call believes the issue is not with any one particular judge it's rather as systemic problem a solution to which is way overdue it's not a mistake or change their opinion in this case but it is then shipped binion it's still playing the different bits and then so have to go and visible difference and
of course probably it will work better but i'm sure olympic games will have to probably the team play. and of course will be subjective refereeing is nothing new with artistic gymnastics far from the only sport where certain decisions seem controversial the issue is now under a close watch by russia's sports authorities as the country's sport minutes or it's out in what's called promise to discuss it with the head of the international gymnastics federation. go to the world i'm certain that the i.o.c. should pay close attention to such things and we have to speak with all the nations that sponsor major sports and make sure that objective refereeing is in place for everyone involved this is global problem and not just in gymnastics well it looks like once again we will be looking forward to not just the political cheviots of the upcoming olympics in london but unfortunately also all the drama that will
surround the judging in the less objective events at the gang's room on cost or of artsy moscow. and that is where we wrap up the sport for this hour world weather is coming up in just a ticket and not us here with all the news at the top of the hour. well. bringing you the latest in science and technology from around the world. we've got the future covered.
