Gymnasts from five nations won gold Wednesday as the 2nd Doha Gymnastics World Cup concluded in Qatar.

The Doha World Cup was the final major international competition before the 2009 World Championships, Oct. 13-18 in London.

China was the only double winner Wednesday, with victories from Hu Yuhong on balance beam and Dong Zhendong on parallel bars.

2008 Olympic silver medalist Thomas Bouhail claimed the vault title, and France's third gold of the meet. Compatriots Cyril Tommasone (pommel horse) and Danny Pinheiro-Rodrigues (still rings) won their respective specialities Tuesday.

Polish Olympian Marta Pihan-Kulesza won her second World Cup title, placing first on women's floor exercise. Her first World Cup victory was on balance beam at the 2009 Turnier der Meister in Cottbus, Germany. Husband Roman Kulesza finished fifth on parallel bars in Doha.

Slovenian veteran Aljaz Pegan, 35, won high bar, his first World Cup title of 2009.
