Bal­ti­more’s fin­ished strong in the floor ex­er­cise at the World Cham­pi­onships in Mon­treal on Satur­day, but his rou­tine score of 14.166 left him in sixth. “I had way more hops than I did the first day and de­duc­tions add up,” said Whit­ten­burg. “I knew if Kenzo could hit his set he was go­ing to win. It was just a mat­ter of who was go­ing to get sec­ond or third at that point.” Team­mate won the bronze in the event for the United States.
