St. Petersburg's Tatiana Nabiyeva won both women's titles Saturday as the 2011 Russian Gymnastics Championships continued at Burtasy Sports Hall in Penza.

Nabiyeva, who did not compete on balance beam or floor exercise in the women's qualification, took gold medals on vault and uneven bars. On vault, she edged veteran Anna Pavlova, who placed second all-around on Wednesday, and all-around bronze medalist Alyona Polyan.

Nabiyeva topped all-around champion Anna Dementyeva for the title on uneven bars. Olympic Youth champion Viktoria Komova — who had scored 16.900 in the women's qualification and 16.200 in Friday's team final — fell but still placed third.

The team competition was held Friday, with the Central region winning the women's title and Moscow taking top spot in the men's competition. World all-around champion Aliya Mustafina, who skipped the national championships to ready for next weekend's American Cup, was allowed to contribute her scores from October's world team final to help her city place second in Penza.

In the men's competition, 2010 world team member Andrei Cherkasov tied Anton Lobachyov for the title on floor exercise. Specialists Andrei Perevoznikov (pommel horse) and Alexander Balandin (still rings) each won their respective events.

Competition concludes Sunday with the remaining event finals.
