Wang edged teammate Feng Zhe to give China its fifth gold medal at this worlds. Kazuhito Tanaka of Japan won the bronze medal.

China dominated the Beijing Olympics, winning both team titles and seven other gold medals. Despite retooling its team, it's been more of the same here. Earlier Sunday, Deng Linlin won gold on balance beam; China won three of the five individual titles Saturday.

Earlier Sunday, Marian Dragulescu won his fourth title on vault. It was the second gold medal in as many days for the Romanian, who retired for about eight months after the Beijing Olympics because of chronic back and neck problems.
