All-around champion Lauren Mitchell continued her domination at the Australian championships, winning three of four gold medals Sunday at Perth's Challenge Stadium.

Mitchell, who trains at the nearby Western Australian Institute of Sport, easily won the vault title with a clean double-twisting Yurchenko. She finished out of the medals on bars (12.750), but won beam and floor despite mistakes.

After an early fall on her two-foot layout, Mitchell edged Victoria's Ashleigh Brennan by a mere .05 to win the title on balance beam.

Mitchell, the reigning world champion on floor exercise, nearly sat down her Arabian double front mount, but came right back with a piked full-in to sissone jump. (Click here for video.)

Queensland's Chloe Sims won the title on uneven bars to add momentum to her comeback. Sims' neat set included an inside Stalder blind to inside Endo to Jaeger. (Click here for video.)

Junior all-around champion Georgia Godwin (Queensland) added another gold medal on floor exercise. All-around runner-up Alexandra Eade (Victoria) won vault, while bronze medalist Emma Jane Nedov (New South Wales) won both uneven bars and balance beam.

Competition concludes Monday in Perth with the second day of men's competition. Samuel Offord, currently second behind Japanese guest Naoya Tsukahara, is seeking his third straight title.
