DOHA: Georgia-Rose Brown of New Zealand, who currently leads with 50 points despite not having scored in Baku, qualified for the women’s uneven bar at the 16th Artistic Gymnastics World Cup Championships here at the Women’s Sports Committee Hall on Wednesday.

As many as 95 male (MAG) and 55 female (WAG) gymnasts representing 55 countries are taking part in the event.

The Doha stopover is the final qualifying round for the 2024 Paris Olympics.

Algeria and Arab world’s star gymnast, Kaylia Nemour has already qualified as an individual to compete at the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris by finishing in 13th place in the all-around during the qualification round in the Olympic cycle of World Cup Series.

But the Algerian (15.400 points) showed that she still wants to make it big after topping the qualification chart on Wednesday.

Nathalie Westlund of Sweden, who also qualified, also stands to make big gains if she does better than in Baku. The Swede finished fourth in the qualification ranking (13.400).

Compatriot Jennifer Williams, who left Cottbus without Olympic qualification points and presently tied with Vanesa Masova (Czech Republic) with 48 points, crashed out of the qualifiers. She finished 17th.
