Raisman, Grishina Score Victories in Jesolo
(7 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)


Junior Anastasia Grishina (Russia) and senior Alexandra Raisman (U.S.) led their teams to victory Saturday evening at the Trofeo Città di Jesolo competition in Italy.

Junior Anasastia Grishina (Russia) and senior Alexandra Raisman (U.S.) won the all-around titles Saturday evening at the Trofeo Città di Jesolo competition in Italy.

 

Raisman, second at the recent American Cup, led the U.S. team (228.450) to victory over Russia (225.900) and Italy (220.300), with Great Britain finishing fourth (204.450).

The flags were the same for the all-around competition, with Raisman defeating Olympians Ksenia Semyonova (Russia) and Vanessa Ferrari (Italy) to win the title.

The competition featured junior and senior gymnasts from six nations, and served as a warm-up for Great Britain, Italy and Russia for the upcoming European Championships in Birmingham.

Ferrari, the 2006 world champion, is making a comeback after ankle surgery in 2009.

"We are thinkings things through one at a time," the 19-year-old Ferrari said. "I'm quite satisfied with my performance. Early in the meet I would not have bet on making the podium, but after two events I realized that I could do it. The best execution? Floor exercise. Getting so close to Raisman and Semyonova is not bad, especially because I still have more simplified routines. If we can in the next few days, I'll try to add some difficulty in view of the trip to England, but without stressing myself. I must also think about the team. Then, perhaps, more simple elements that are well done [would be better] rather than trying full difficulty, as I have done on other occasions in the past."

Grishina won comfortably, with her all-around total nearly two points higher than any other competitor, junior or senior. She also took the high scores of the day on uneven bars (15.90, with 9.4 Execution Score) and balance beam (14.90). The 14 year old from Moscow won the all-around, uneven bars and balance beam in her division at the recent Russian Championships in Penza.

U.S. junior champion Kyla Ross, 13, finished second all-around. Italian gymnasts Erika Fasana and Andrea Foti, both 14, tied for the bronze.

Russia won the junior team title (223.250) over Italy (221.500) and Japan (217.750). Great Britain finished fourth (202.800).
