WELSH rhythmic gymnast Frankie Jones missed out on a place in the final of the individual all-around event as Russia dominated with a top-two finish.

Reigning champion Evgeniya Kanaeva led the way ahead of Daria Dmitrieva after the final two rotations, clubs and ribbon, to live up to her title of hot favourite with a score of 116.000 after all four pieces of apparatus.

Jones, whose father is from Pontypool, finished 24th, the last place, with a total of 94.625 after 23.900 with the ribbon and 21.975 with the clubs, following on from Thursday’s hoop (24.200) and ball (24.550) routines.

It meant the end of the road for the 21-year-old, Britain’s only representative in the event, at her debut Olympic Games, and she was disappointed with the result after she lost control of one of her clubs in her final appearance in the competition.

“I’m really sorry I just couldn’t do it justice,” she said.

“I’m very disappointed. It’s such a mistake. You can’t control it. There was nothing I could do to control it.

“I tried my best and I’m so grateful to be here. The support has just been phenomenal.

“The support of everybody has been amazing. I couldn’t have imagined so much support from everybody.

“The whole spirit of Team GB has been amazing.”

The six-time British champion produced a clean routine with the ribbon to follow on from her overnight 21st place but struggled with the clubs to leave her last in the rankings.

The top 10 gymnasts will now compete for the medal positions in today’s final at Wembley arena.
