Great Britain claimed the top spot in a four-way junior men's competition against France, Germany and Switzerland on Saturday in Monheim, Bavaria.

The British brought a double victory Saturday as their female counterparts defeated the same three countries at a junior quad meet held in Volketswil, Switzerland.

The competition in Monheim served as a warmup for the upcoming Junior European Championships, May 25-29 in Bern, Switzerland. All four nations sent the same teams entered into the competition in Bern, where the British men are favored to defend the junior team title.

Great Britain (334.800) won by a commanding victory of more than 8 points, with the team earning the highest score on five of the six events. Multiple mistakes on high bar brought the other teams closer, but Britain continued with a strong team performance on floor exercise and pommel horse to easily win.

The competition among the other three teams was much tighter, with the teams separated by less than 1.5 points. Switzerland claimed silver (326.700) over France (325.950) and Germany (325.300). The host team's fourth place was still a good outcome because of the improved score, said said 2004 and 2008 Olympian Thomas Andergassen, now the head coach for the German junior team.

"The competition was certainly positive for us, because if you look at the distances (between countries), we have made significant progress. We'll be stronger after the event," Andergassen said.

2014 Youth Olympic Champion Giarnni Regini-Moran (84.450) and teammate Hamish Carter (84.300) finished 1-2 in the all-around for Great Britain. Robin Caillaud, runner-up at the 2015 French Junior Championships, won the bronze (83.250)

France's Cameron-Lie Bernard (81.850) finished fourth ahead of Switzerland's Samir Serhani (81.450). New British Under-18 junior champion Joe Fraser placed sixth after missed routines on pommel horse and high bar. Carlo Hörr (80.250) and Nick Klessing (80.100) earn the best finishes for Germany in the all-around, finishing 10th and 11th, respectively.

Regini-Moran put up the top individual scores on floor exercise (14.900/6.0) and vault (14.950/6.0). Teammate Joshua Nathan (14.000/6.0) had the top score on pommel horse. The British superiority was especially evident on pommel horse, where their Difficulty scores were far above their rivals. Jamie Lewis also had a 6.0 D-score, while Fraser had 5.8. Only one other gymnast in the field, France's Baptiste Miette (5.7), had a D-score above 5.3 on pommel horse.

Klessing earned the best score on rings (14.550/5.5) while France's Bernard outscored the field on parallel bars (14.850/5.7). Switzerland's Moreno Kratter (14.250/5.4) was the top gymnast on high bar, where the Swiss had the best team total.
