In the parallel bars Larduet climbed to the top of the podium after receiving 15,100 points and leaving Romanian Andrei Vasile Munteun (14,600) and Swiss Henji Mboyo (14,350) behind him.

Larduet finished in 6th and 7th places in hands-free exercises and the pommel horse, in that order, and did not classify at the horizontal bar.
