The anguish of the high bar hit the male gymnastics team of Great Britain led by Max Whitlock as they settled for the silver behind Russia for the European third in a row.

The five-man team had drawn a significant deficit to almost a point heading to the final apparatus in Glasgow, but the falls of Dominick Cunningham and James Hall were costly.

It paved the way for a series of competitive individual finals on Sunday in which the double Olympic king Whitlock will again take center stage.

Despite improving his floor routine, Whitlock fought on his favorite knob and scored a modest 14,433 after he is considered to have lost one of his elements.

On Sunday Whitlock will face Rhys McClenaghan and Russian David Belyavskiy, who overshadowed him in qualifying.

But Whitlock promised: "I looked towards London 2012, where I had the mentality to give everything, and that's what I've done again."

There was more luck in the men's BMX, as Kyle Evans took home Kye Whyte to gold and silver.

Evans stood out in the decisive race at Knightswood Park, while Whyte resisted Sylvain Andre.

The victory was rich for Evans after eight wrist surgeries. Matty Lee and Lois Toulson won the silver medal in the synchronous 10-meter mix in Edinburgh's hometown.

Scottish teammates Grace Reid and Alicia Blagg won gold and silver on the three-meter springboard.
