China's Zhang shocks Olympic champion Hashimoto to win all******
KITAKYUSHU, Japan, Oct. 22 (Xinhua) -- Chinese debutant Zhang Boheng beat Olympic champion Hashimoto Daiki by 0.017 points to win the men's all-around title at the World Artistic Gymnastics Championships here on Friday.
Zhang, 21, competing in his first major international event, scored highest in the floor, vault and parallel bars and second-best in the horizontal bar and rings, collecting a total of 87.981 points. Hashimoto, who edged Zhang's teammate Xiao Ruoteng to second place at the Olympic Games, took the silver with 87.964 points.
"I am too excited to sleep tonight," said Zhang, who narrowly missed the Tokyo Olympics. "To beat Olympic champion Hashimoto and win the gold medal is a great achievement."
Zhang's title hope hung by a thread after he fell off the pommel horse, but after Hashimoto also slipped off the apparatus, the two gymnasts, who finished 1-2 in the qualifying campaign, returned to the starting point.
Zhang, who won the silver medal at the Chinese National Games in September, managed to build an advantage of 0.35 points after the fifth discipline of parallel bars before going to the final showdown in the horizontal bar, an event Hashimoto won at the Tokyo Olympic Games.
His landing was a little awkward, but the nearly perfect routine on the bar earned 14.800 points to give him a lead of 15.15 points over Hashimoto.
Hashimoto, 20, showed that it was his event, but his score of 15.133 was not enough.
"I think that as the Olympic champion, Hashimoto was under much more pressure than I am," Zhang told Xinhua.
"There must be a reason why I failed to win the gold medal," Hashimoto said. "That shows that I am not strong enough."
Ukraine's Illia Kovtun took the bronze with 84.899 points. Zhang's teammate Shi Cong finished sixth. Enditem

Economic Watch: China's employment stable, policy supports continue******
BEIJING, Nov. 15 (Xinhua) -- China has created 11.33 million new jobs in its urban areas during the first 10 months of this year, achieving the target for the whole year in advance.。
From January to October, the country's surveyed urban unemployment rate averaged 5.1 percent, said Fu Linghui, spokesperson for the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) on Monday.。
China's surveyed urban unemployment rate stood at 4.9 percent in October, 0.4 percentage points lower than the same period last year, NBS data shows.。
The surveyed urban unemployment rate is calculated based on the number of unemployed people who have participated in the employment survey in urban areas, including migrant workers in cities.。
"The surveyed unemployment rate among those aged between 16 and 24 has dropped for three consecutive months, showing that the employment situation of young people is gradually improving," Fu said, adding that the main reason is the gradual increase in the employment of college students.。
The rate among those aged between 25 and 59, the majority of the labor market, stood at 4.2 percent in October, the same level as in September.。
The surveyed unemployment rate in 31 major cities was 5.1 percent last month, up 0.1 percentage points from that in September.。
"The policy of stabilizing employment continued, and the employment situation was generally stable," Fu noted.。
The country has promised to fully deliver the tax and fee cuts already introduced and curb arbitrary charges so as to support market entities in preventing unemployment and job losses.。
It also worked to strengthen the employment-first policy, and boost employment for key job-hunting groups, including college graduates, veterans and migrant workers.。
China's State Council has released a plan this year on boosting employment for the 14th Five-Year Plan period (2021-2025), vowing to add over 55 million new urban jobs in the next five years. Enditem。
