DOHA: Olympic champion Ri Se Gwang of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea lived up to his reputation after he won the men’s vault final here at the Aspire Dome on Saturday afternoon.

Ri tallied an impressive 14.933 amid thunderous applause from the Korean fans.

Russian Federation’s Dalaloyan (14.883) took the silver while there was further disappointment of Japan’s Kenzo Shirai, who failed to defend the title.

Shirai, who finished third in floor on Friday, had to be content with bronze (14.675).
