Following teammate Farah Ann Abdul Hadi's first FIG World Challenge Cup medalist for the Malaysian women on Saturday, Malaysia's Tan Ing Yueh and Tracie Ang became their country's first gold medalists during the second day of finals in Ljubljana on Sunday.

Tan placed first on balance beam, scoring 13.80 for a routine that included a side aerial, layout step-out; split leap, side somi; double turn; and gainer layout dismount. Second was 2008 Slovenian Olympian Adela Šajn, who will turn 26 on April 14.

On floor exercise, Ang placed first with an energetic routine, ahead of silver medalist Sydney Soloski of Canada. Soloski, who earlier in the day won bronze on balance beam, tumbled a double layout, 2-1/2 twist and double tuck.

Slovenia and Turkey won two medals each in the men's finals on Sunday.

Alen Dimic of Slovenia performed smoothly on parallel bars, where he dismounted with a solid double pike, for gold on that event. Ukraine's Yevgen Yudenkov had the field's highest Difficulty score but the second-lowest Execution score for silver. İbrahim Çolak of Turkey placed third. Yudenkov and Colak were second and first, respectively, in Saturday's rings final.

On vault, Pavel Bulavsky of Belarus placed first despite over-rotating his second vault, a Tsukahara double pike. Silver medalist Vitālijs Kardašovs of Latvia put a hand down and stumbled backward in his first vault, a cowboyed double front. He cleanly hit his second vault, a double-twisting Tsukahara.

Turkey's Ümit Şamiloğlu, 35, outscored the rest of field by 0.40 in Execution for gold on high bar, ahead of silver medalist Dimic.

The FIG World Challenge Cup series continues April 28 to May 5 in Osijek, Croatia.
