France Wins Twice at Doha World Cup
(3 votes, average 4.33 out of 5)

2008 Olympians Anja Brinker (Germany) and Danny Pinheiro-Rodrigues (France) were among the gold medalists Tuesday at the 2nd Doha Gymnastics World Cup in Qatar.

Brinker won the gold medal on uneven bars over France's Pauline Morel. Brinker's Olympic teammate Marie-Sophie Hindermann won the bronze.

Sweden's Ida Jonsson won the women's vault title over Slovenian Tjasa Kysselef. Johnsson's victory is the first World Cup gold for a Swedish woman since Veronica Wagner won vault and balance beam at the 2007 World Cup in Buenos Aires.

Croatia's Tomislav Markovic scored his biggest victory to date, winning floor exercise over 2009 European medalist Eleftherios Kosmidis (Greece) and 2008 Olympic silver medalist Thomas Bouhail (France). Markovic finished third on floor exercise at the 2008 Doha World Cup.

France was the most successful nation, with Cyril Tomassone winning pommel horse and Pinheiro-Rodrigues earning the gold on still rings.

Competition concludes Wednesday with the remaining five apparatus finals. The Doha World Cup is the final major international competition before the 2009 World Championships, Oct. 13-18 in London.
