(4 votes, average 4.00 out of 5)



Two-time world medalist Daria Spiridonova (Russia) won two gold medals at the Elite Gym Massilia, held Friday through Sunday in Marseille, France.

Two-time world medalist Daria Spiridonova (Russia) won the Masters all-around title at the Elite Gym Massilia, held Friday through Sunday in Marseille, France.

The annual event features three days of competition, with Masters, Open and "Cigales" (Youth) among the levels.

Spiridonova, who won bronze medals with the team and on uneven bars at last month's worlds in Nanning, captured the all-around title on Saturday. Italy's Giorgia Campana took second over Belgium's Nina Derwael.

Spiridonova had the top score on uneven bars (inside Stalder, inside Stalder-full, Komova, Pak; Maloney-half; inside Stalder blind to Jaeger; full-twisting double back). She showed off elegance on balance beam (beautiful full turn in Y; switch leap, Onodi; consecutive front aerials;. Kochetkova) but ultimately fell off on a ff, ff, layout and stumbled backward on her RO, double tuck.

Shallon Olsen (Canada) had the top score on vault (14.500) for her double-twisting Yurchenko, while Australia's Georgia Godwin topped the rankings on balance beam (14.133).

Derwael had the top score on floor (13.900). She and Olsen were among several gymnasts who competed in both the Open and Master competitions, held separately on Saturday.

Swiss gymnast Giada Grisetti won the Open competition over Canada's Rose-Kaying Woo and Germany's Florine Harder.

Italy won the Masters team competition over Russia and Belgium. The second of two Belgian teams won the Open competition over Canada and Germany.

Sunday's "Top Massilia" apparatus finals included the top-scoring gymnasts from both the Masters and Open sessions.

Russia grabbed two more gold medals with Olympic silver and bronze medalist Maria Paseka winning vault and Spiridonova winning uneven bars.

Claire Martin won a gold medal for the host country, showing fantastic polish and promise with the balance beam title (ff ff layout; Onodi; side somi; RO double pike). Belgian junior Axelle Klinckaert – a finalist on beam and floor at this year's Junior Europeans in Sofia – won floor exercise (Arabian double front; two whips to double tuck; 2 1/2; double pike).

"Cigales" champions were Hungary's Csenge Molnár (born 2002), Marseille's own Louna Dozon (2003), and American Riley Perumal (2004).

Russians Spiridonova, Ignatyev Win Swiss Cup
(2 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)



Russians Daria Spiridonova and Nikita Ignatyev teamed up on Sunday in Zurich to win the Swiss Cup, a mixed-pairs competition. Pictured: The final four teams from Ukraine, Russia, Germany and Switzerland.

Russians Daria Spiridonova and Nikita Ignatyev teamed up to win the Swiss Cup on Sunday in Zurich.

The annual event pairs a female and male gymnast, each competing one event per round. Eight teams advance to the semifinal and four teams advance to the final. Gymnasts who choose compete on vault must show two different vaults for an average of the two scores. The gymnasts cannot compete the same event through the first three rounds of competition, but can compete any event in the four-team final.

Spiridonova – fresh off her victory at the Arthur Gander Memorial on Wednesday – and Ignatyev gave Russia its first Swiss Cup victory since 2000, when Yelena Zamolodchikova and Alexei Bondarenko took the title. Spiridonova (15.050 on uneven bars) and Ignatyev (14.950 on still rings) scored a solid 30.000 points in the final round to take the title.

World parallel bars champion Oleg Vernyayev – who won the men's title at the Gander Memorial – paired up with Angelina Kysla to place second with 29.725. Vernyayev's 16.000 on parallel bars in the final was the highest score of the day.

Swiss Cup veterans Elisabeth Seitz and Fabian Hambüchen (Germany) were third (28.850). The duo won the Swiss Cup title in 2010 and 2012.

Switzerland's star pair, 2011 champions Giulia Steingruber and Claudio Capelli, finished last in the final with only 19.475. Capelli hit parallel bars for 14.650, but Steingruber fell on her first vault and did not attempt a second.

Japan, Italy, Romania and Brazil rounded out the teams that advanced to the semi-final. Larisa Iordache, one half of the defending champion Romanian pair, struggled with scores of 13.800 on balance beam, 13.650 on uneven and 13.800 on floor exercise.

France and a second Swiss team failed to advance past the first two rounds.

On Saturday, a junior men's competition was held with teams from Belgium, Italy, Netherlands and Switzerland. The host Swiss team topped the competition with a victory over the Italian and Belgium teams, with the Dutch gymnasts coming in fourth. Italy's Luca Lino Garza had the top all-around score.

Spiridonova, Vernyayev Win Gander Memorial
(5 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)



Daria Spiridonova (Russia) and Oleg Vernyayev (Ukraine) won the 31st Arthur Gander Memorial, held Wednesday in Chiasso, Switzerland.

Daria Spiridonova (Russia) and Oleg Vernyayev (Ukraine) won the 31st Arthur Gander Memorial, held Wednesday in Chiasso, Switzerland.

The Gander Memorial – which alternates each year between Chiasso and Morges – features female gymnasts competing three events of their choice and male gymnasts competing four events. The top six gymnasts after qualification (two events for women and three events for men) advanced to their final event, with all scores counting toward the final.

Spiridonova, who picked up bronze medals (team and uneven bars) at the world championships earlier this month in Nanning, edged Romanian star Larisa Iordache, 43.200-43.000.

Spiridonova competed vault for the first event, scoring only 13.300 for 10th place, but moved up to first place after her 15.000 on uneven bars. She repeated uneven bars in the final, scoring 14.900 to clinch victory.

Iordache, the all-around and floor exercise silver medalist in Nanning, competed vault, uneven bars and floor exercise to place ahead of German veteran Elisabeth Seitz.

In the men's competition, Vernyayev crushed the competition with an easy victory. He topped German star Fabian Hambüchen by more than 2 full points, 62.250-62.000. Russia's Nikita Ignatyev won the bronze medal with 59.250.

Vernyayev, who captured the world title on parallel bars in Nanning, impressed on that event in Chiasso with 16.250.

The organizers also awarded special trophies for the top scores on two events: women's floor exercise (Iordache) and parallel bars (Vernyayev).

Many of the gymnasts in the field will travel to Zurich for Sunday's Swiss Cup, a mixed-pairs competition.

Yao, Zou Golden Again as Asian Games End
(6 votes, average 4.33 out of 5)



China's Yao Jinnan and Zou Kai each won another gold medal in apparatus finals as the 17th Asian Games ended Thursday in Incheon, Korea. Pictured: Kim Un Hyang (North Korea) cries with joy after winning the balance beam gold medal in Incheon.

China won two more gold medals in apparatus finals as the 17th Asian Games ended Thursday in Incheon, Korea.

Yao Jinnan won women's floor exercise and Zou Kai won high bar to take back to China, which plays host to the upcoming world championships.

Yao's gold medal on floor exercise was her fourth in Incheon, after victories in the team competition, all-around and uneven bars. Yao tumbled a double pike; 1 1/2 to 2 1/2, triple twist to stag jump; and a double tuck.

All-around runner-up Shang Chansong took second with a more ambitious routine (tucked full-in; 1 1/2 to triple twist, punch front; 2 1/2 punch pike; double pike). Korea's Yun Na Rae, third in the all-around, took another bronze in the floor final.

In the women's balance beam final, Shang nailed the content of her routine (ff ff two-foot layout; front aerial, sheep jump; ff layout; punch front, wolf jump, Korbut; double turn; switch leap, back tuck) before falling on her triple twist dismount.

North Korea's Kim Un Hyang won the gold medal with a beautiful and difficult routine, highlighted by a roundoff, layout full twist. Vietnam's Phan Thi Ha Thanh, third in Wednesday's vault final, took a surprise silver medal over Shang with an elegant routine.

Shek Wai Hung earned the upset of the competition, defeating world and Olympic champion Yang Hak Seon for the gold medal on men's vault. Shek vaulted a clean Dragulescu and triple-twisting Tsukahara to win by a tiny margin, 15.216-15.200.

"It was totally beyond my expectations - beating an Olympic champion here," said Shek, who went up first in the lineup. "It is a great moment to treasure."

Yang had been expected to battle North Korea's Ri Se Gwang, the top qualifier, for the gold medal. Yang, suffering from a hamstring injury, did not perform his namesake vault (triple-twisting layout handspring front) and stepped over the line on his layout Randi to place second. Ri crashed his piked Dragulescu, nearly landing on his face, but landed his full-twisting Tsukahara double back well. With both ankles heavily taped, Ri limped off the podium and finished out of the medals.

Yang said the hamstring injury prevented him from competing his second vault, a Tsukahara with 3 1/2 twists.

"It still hurts when I squat or sit in a chair," Yang said of his injury. "My leg was hurting, but fortunately, I was able to compete at the end. I tried to do the 'Yang 2' in my second attempt and I had the will. But my body wouldn't allow it."

Men's all-around champion Yuya Kamoto won parallel bars, bringing the Japanese men their fourth gold medal in Incheon.

Zou finished strong to win the high bar gold medal over Japan's Yusuke Saito and Masayoshi Yamamoto. Zou, China's most decorated Olympian in any sport, also won men's floor exercise on Wednesday. He is an alternate for the host team at the world championships, which begin Oct. 3 in Nanning.

The 2018 Asian Games take place in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Women's all-around champion Yao Jinnan nailed her uneven bars routine (Komova II to Pak salto to immediate Stalder-Shaposhnikova-half; inverted pirouette to 1 1/2 to Tkatchev; double layout), winning by more than a point over teammate Huang Huidan.

Huang, the reigning world champion, had to settle for second after two breaks on her pirouettes, though she showed a new dismount of front giant to half-in, back out.

Five-time Olympic champion Zou Kai won floor exercise, the first gold medal for the Chinese men in Incheon. Zou — who won floor exercise at the 2006 Asian Games but was left off the team in 2010 — hit his routine cleanly (Randi; layout double-double; front double full, layout front full; 2 1/2 to Rudi; tucked double-double dismount) but said he can do better.

"I'm not very satisfied with my performance today," said Zou, who only returned to training a few months ago after getting married. "I could have done better, but I'm a little bit nervous. I managed to hit it and I shouldn't ask for more."

All-around runner-up Masayoshi Yamamoto (Japan) won pommel horse, while Liao Junlin brought a third gold medal for China with his victory on still rings.

2008 Olympic vault champion Hong Un Jong won the women's vault title, performing Amanar and Cheng vaults. Six-time Olympian Oksana Chusovitina (Uzbekistan) won the silver, her seventh Asian Games medal, over world bronze medalist Phan Thi Ha Thanh (Vietnam).

Competition concludes Thursday with the second day of apparatus finals.
