BBC Sport - European Gymnastics: Epke Zonderland crashes out of high bar

Zonderland's high bar blunder

Dutch gymnast Epke Zonderland falls heavily and crashes out of the horizontal high bar competition at European Artistic Gymnastics Championships.

The Olympic, World and defending European champion failed to make the final of the competition in Montpellier, France, after falling in qualification.

Zonderland, who was celebrating his 29th birthday, tells BBC Sport that the fall hurt him mentally more than physically and was a result of a technical problem affecting his timing on the bar.
