Rising Romanian star Larisa Iordache led Romania to victory over the British at a dual meet held Friday at Lilleshall National Sports Centre.

Rising star Larisa Iordache led her Romanian junior squad to victory over the British at a dual meet held Friday at Lilleshall National Sports Centre.

The Romanians outscored their hosts on all events but uneven bars, where the British outscored them by .25.

Iordache took her third all-around victory in five weeks, following wins at the Gym-Festival Trnava in early June and the French club championships in late May. Iordache, who turns 15 on Sunday, will be age eligible for the 2012 Olympic Games in London, but not this year's world championships.

Britain's Gaby Jupp took the all-around silver medal ahead of Romanian Georgiana Gheorghe.
