Gymnastics German Championships: Gymnasts Dauser and Toba shine on parallel bars and high bar

Lukas Dauser does gymnastics on the parallel bars “like a cat” and delights the fans. Andreas Toba impresses on the high bar with his best routine in three years. Elisabeth Seitz extends her title record.

Parallel bars world champion Lukas Dauser provided another highlight at the German Gymnastics Championships in Frankfurt/Main with another gala performance on his flagship apparatus.

One day after winning the all-around title, the 30-year-old from Unterhaching won with a world-class score of 15,500 points. The Olympic silver medalist thus improved his score by 0.167 points compared to the previous day.

“The exercise is stable, you can see that he has mastered the exercise. He performs it calmly with his style that no one else has. It is such a soft style, he does it like a cat,” said national coach Valeri Belenki.

Toba impresses on the king’s device

Defending champion Glenn Trebing from Hanover came second with 14.025 points, ahead of his club colleague Andreas Toba (13.550). The 33-year-old then defended his title on the high bar, the king’s apparatus, with a strong 14.475 points, on which he won European Championship silver in Basel in 2021. “That was the most successful, the best exercise since Basel,” said Toba. Dauser came second with 13.825 points, ahead of Carlo Hörr from Schmiden, who had the same number of points.

Elisabeth Seitz wins 26th title and is combative

Elisabeth Seitz was celebrated for her 26th German championship title. The 30-year-old record champion won nine months after tearing her Achilles tendon with a fantastic score of 14.750 points on the uneven bars, where she was European champion in 2002. “The title feels particularly good today because I showed that I’m far from giving up,” said the Stuttgart native, looking ahead to the elimination round for the last Olympic ticket. “With 14.75, it doesn’t take many words to understand that I could be relatively close to an international medal,” she added.

After her four-event title, 16-year-old Helen Kevric also won on the floor with 13.425 points. The Stuttgart native won ahead of Karina Schönmaier (13.075) and Pauline Schäfer-Betz (12.800) from Chemnitz. On the balance beam, the defending champion also had to settle for third place with 13.025 points after a fall during the Schäfer salto named after her. Gold went to Sarah Voss from Cologne with 13.975 points ahead of Kevric (13.050), who finished second on the uneven bars with 14.400 points behind Seitz.
