It was the third title claimed by the Chinese gymnastics team at the London Games.

As the third one to compete, Feng was under much pressure after teammate Zhang Chenglong fell off the apparatus. But the 2010 world champion in the discipline managed to hold his nerve and earn a highest score of 15.955 points.

Marcel Nguyen of Germany was 0.166 points behind and took the silver. The bronze went to French Hamilton Sabot who scored 15.566 points.

Feng, 25, helped China retain their team title earlier this week.

Zhang Chenglong made a mistake in his routine and garnered only 13.808 points to end up ninth in the final.
