Berki, Balandin Best at Osijek World Cup
(2 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)
Pommel horse world champion Krisztian Berki of Hungary was one of five winners Saturday at the Osijek World Cup in Croatia.

Berki, the only 2010 world medalist competing Saturday, topped Croatians Robert Seligman and Filip Ude in the pommel horse final.

Second to Brazilian Diego Hypolito in 2009, Croatia's Tomislav Markovic won floor exercise this year. Markovic outscored Italian veteran Enrico Pozzo and Finland's Sakari Vekki in the final.

Russians Alexander Balandin and Denis Ablyazin went 1-2 on still rings. Balandin, one of the specialists left off Russia's world team in favor of giving experience to young gymnasts, had the highest score of the day in Osijek (15.825).

Poland's Paula Plichta won women's vault over teammate Gabriela Janik. Croatia's Tijana Tkalčec, second in 2009, won the bronze.

Czech veteran Jana Sikulova won uneven bars, her third World Cup title in 2010 following wins in Maribor and Ostrava. Austria's Barbara Gasser won the silver over Dutch gymnast Marlies Rijken.

Competition concludes Sunday with the remaining finals. Top qualifiers were Poland's Katarzyna Jurkowska (balance beam) and Adam Kierzkowski (parallel bars); Croatia's Tina Erceg (women's floor exercise), Canada'a Nathan Gafuik (men's vault) and Slovakia's Samuel Piasecky (high bar).
