Dementyeva Wins Again as Russian Nationals End
(10 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

All-around champion Anna Dementyeva picked up another title as the 2011 Russian Gymnastics Championships concluded Sunday in Penza.

Dementyeva, who won the all-around title on Wednesday, won the gold medal on balance beam and the silver on floor exercise to end her competition on a high note. At the 2010 World Championships in Rotterdam, Dementyeva was the youngest member of the Russian women's squad which captured its first world team title. She turned 16 on Dec. 28.

First-year senior Yulia Belokobylskaya (bela-kab-EEL-sky-a) won floor exercise and took third on balance beam. Belokobylskaya turns 16 on Dec. 14.

Olympic Youth champion Viktoria Komova, who attempted her flip flop, layout stepout, tucked Arabian combination in Penza, fell to place fourth.

Two-time Olympian Anna Pavlova, who took second all-around, finished out of the medals Sunday. Though her knee is still heavily wrapped since tearing her ACL in 2008, Pavlova tumbled a double layout on floor exercise and attempted a triple twist off beam.

In the men's competition, veteran Anton Golotsutskov won the gold medal on vault.

Youth prevailed on the remaining two events, with all-around bronze medalist Nikita Ignatyev, 18, winning parallel bars and Emin Garibov, 20, winning high bar.

All-around champion Maxim Devyatovsky failed to win any event medals, placing fifth on both parallel bars and high bar.

World all-around champion Aliya Mustafina and Olympian Sergei Khorokhordin skipped the competition in Penza. Both are scheduled to compete at the AT&T American Cup on Saturday.
