    European balance beam champion Emma Malewski and the Germany I gymnastics team were not able to place in the front at the DTB Cup in Stuttgart.

    The 18-year-old from Chemnitz and her younger teammates Karina Schönmaier, Lea Quaas (both Chemnitz), Anna-Lena König (Karlsruhe) and Meolie Jauch (Stuttgart) scored 150,950 points in the Team Challenge in front of 2,800 spectators in the arena and finished seventh place out of ten teams. Malewski also missed the decision on her parade device after being relegated.

    There was also no podium place for the two German men who took part in the final in the evening. Dario Sissakis from Berlin landed his second attempt in the jump and finished fifth with 13.783 points. The Hanoverian Andreas Toba, who had moved up in the decision on the rings, finished sixth and last after an unsuccessful exit with 13.266 points.

    Jessica Schlegel in the final

    Malewski was not having a good day, showing just a simple jump, failing to stand on her uneven bars dismount and falling off the beam during an acrobatic series of freewheel and straddling. Two weeks after her third place at the World Cup in Doha, 12.450 points on the narrow ridge of just ten centimeters were not enough for the student to qualify for the final on Sunday (10 a.m.). In this, Jessica Schlegel will represent the German colors, who surprisingly provided the second highest mark in the field with 13.45 points.

    The USA secured victory in the Team Challenge with 162.30 points ahead of Belgium (155.95) and France (155.30). The second squad of the German Gymnastics Federation (DTB) with Schlegel (Leipzig), Chiara Moiszi (Freiburg), Lea Wartmann (Chemnitz), Amelie Pfeil (Böckingen) and Janoah Müller (Mannheim) had to compete with 143.70 points and the last content space.
