Muscovite Emin Garibov topped defending champion Sergei Khorokhordin for the Russian Cup men's all-around title on Friday in Yekaterinburg.

Garibov edged Khorokhordin by .075 to take his first senior national title. Garibov, who turns 21 on Sept. 8, won the gold medal on high bar at the 2008 Junior Europeans in Lausanne.

Khorokhordin — who turns 26 during October's world championships — scraped by 19-year-old Nikita Ignatyev, 90.600-90.325.

Another youngster, 19-year-old world team member David Belyavsky, took fourth with 89.975. 2008 Olympian Maxim Devyatovsky was fifth, more than 3 points back.

The veterans are fighting to hold off the newcomers on the team, said world and Olympic medalist Anton Golotsutskov.

"We have so many kids nipping at our heels," said Golotsutskov, 26. "On the team there are a few old-timers - me, Khorokhordin and Maxim Devyatovsky - and the rest are young guys."

Competition continues Saturday in Yekaterinburg with the first day of event finals.
