Nineteen year old Xiao Kangjun is the latest star of the World Universiade in Shenzhen after she claimed gold in the women's individual all-round.

Xiao is the only Chinese gymnast in the individual all-round. China's most established star Cheng Fei is absent due to injury. 24 gymnasts were vying for the title. Xiao vaulted well and with 13.7 points was nicely placed moving to the uneven bars.

There she performed a number of moves with a high degree of difficulty to score 15.000 points and move into 1st place. Xiao's performance on the balance beam and on the floor was good enough for her to maintain position and win gold.
