British Juniors Dominate Down Under
(6 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

British gymnasts won nine more gold medals Sunday at the Australian Youth Olympic Festival in Sydney.

Sunday's haul gave Great Britain a total of 10 gold medals at the competition, the first international of 2013. The British men won the team title on Friday, while China won the women's gold medal. Australia won the bronze for both teams.

The competition format on Sunday featured all gymnasts competing again to decide both all-around and apparatus honors. Great Britain and China dominated the competition with a sweep of all the medals, leaving the host Australians without any hardware.

Britain's Tyesha Mattis, 13, captured the women's all-around title over teammate Teal Grindle, 12. China's Mei Jie, 13, won the all-around bronze.

"I am so pleased that I won the all-around title," Mattis said. "We all tried our best and I think everyone in the team can be really proud of their efforts as we had really good results. This is a big confidence boost and now hopefully we can do the same at the European Youth Olympic Festival this summer."

Each of the all-around medalists also picked up an event gold medal. Mattis easily won the vault title with 14.766, the highest score of the day at Sydney Olympic Park. Mei won uneven bars and Grindle was best on beam. Amy Tinkler, 13, brought Britain another gold with the floor exercise title.

China's Xiao Ruoteng, 16, won the men's all-around title by more than a full point over Britain's Dominick Cunningham, 17. China's Wu Di, 16, and Britain's Nile Wilson, 17, tied for the bronze.

Cunningham tied teammate James Hall, 17, for the floor exercise title. Wilson, second all-around at the 2012 Junior Europeans in Montpellier, won golds on parallel bars and high bar. Junior European still rings champion Courtney Tulloch (Great Britain) was victorious again on his best event. China won two apparatus titles from Xiao on pommel horse and Wu on vault.

Previously held every two years, the Australian Youth Olympic Festival is now scheduled for every four years to accommodate the Youth Olympic Games.
