Yan Mingyong gave China its third gold medal at the world gymnastics championships, winning the title on still rings.

Yan scored 15.675, edging the ageless Jordan Jovtchev of Bulgaria by just .10. Oleksandr Vorobiov of Ukraine, the Olympic bronze medalist, was third.

China dominated the Beijing Olympics, winning both team titles, all but one of the men's events and one of the individual women's golds. On Saturday, it was more of the same, with China winning three of the five available gold medals.

He Kexin added a world title to go with her Olympic gold on uneven bars, and Zhang Hongtao took the pommel horse title.

American Kayla Williams won the women's vault title and Marian Dragulescu of Romania won the men's floor.
