Russia's Daria Skrypnik and Great Britain's Joe Fraser won the all-around titles the 2015 European Youth Olympic Festival continued Thursday in Tbilisi, Georgia.

The biennial European Youth Olympic Festival is a mult-sport event for the top Olympic hopefuls. This year's edition in the Georgian capital includes nine sports: gymnastics, basketball, cycling, judo, tennis, athletics, swimming, volleyball and handball, and has attracted more than 3,800 athletes from 50 European countries.

Skrypnik and Fraser were the top qualifiers from the team competition in Tbilisi, where each led their respective countries to the team title.

The 14-year-Skrypnik tied Belgium's Axelle Klinckaert with 55.75, but was awarded the gold medal due to a tie break. The lanky Skrypnik had the top score of the day on uneven bars (14.75), where she competed a Komova II to Pak salto-Stalder Shaposhnikova combination; inside Stalder, inside Stalder-blind to piked Jaeger; inside-Stalder full to full-twisting double dismount. Her low score came on balance beam, after she dropped off on a front aerial-illusion combination, but she had the top mark on vault (14.55) for her double-twisting Yurchenko.

Klinckaert was steady, earning highs of 14.20 on balance beam (beautiful two-foot layout; ff, ff double pike dismount) and floor exercise (full-in; triple twist; double pike). She took her low score on uneven bars, showing good form but low amplitude (Tkatchev; Khorkina; double pike dismount).

Russia's Anastasia Ilyankova won the bronze, moving up one spot from qualification. Ilyankova impressed again on uneven bars, earning 14.65 for her dynamic routine (Shaposhnikova, back uprise full to Tkatchev; Hindorff-Pak; Maloney; full-twisting double).

Fraser once again proved the British boys are unbeatable in Europe, easily winning the men's title with 84.75. He had the two top scores of the day, with 14.65 on parallel bars and 14.60 on pommel horse.

"I'm really happy," Fraser said. "It hasn’t quite sunk in yet and doesn’t feel real. Everything came together today and all of my apparatus work was on form."

Russia was second and third, with Maxim Sinichkin winning the silver (83.25) and Artyom Arnaut (82.70).

Great Britains' Giarnni Regini-Moran, who won both the Youth Olympic Games and Junior European championships in 2014, missed the podium after a disastrous 12.35 on pommel horse.

Competition continues Thursday in Tbilisi with the first day of apparatus finals.
