English gymnasts continued their domination of the Commonwealth Youth Games in the Isle of Man, winning five more gold medals as the competition concluded Sunday.

The English women, who won the team title on Friday in Douglas, grabbed three of four titles in the apparatus finals. 2011 British junior champion Rebecca Tunney, age eligible for the 2012 Olympics in London, won the vault title. Charlie Fellows (Sandbach Gymnastics Club) won uneven bars, and all-around bronze medalist Abi Caig won floor exercise.

After team and all-around victories, the English men brought two more gold medals from Gaius Thompson (parallel bars) and Dominick Cunningham (high bar). Cunningham, the all-around champion, was the most successful gymnast in Douglas with three golds, one silver and a bronze.

"That was a fantastic achievement of all our boys and everybody is very happy with their performance and results," said Cunningham's coach, Ryan Bradley. "As for myself, this was my first experience as a coach bringing a gymnast at this high level of competition and I hope that I will be able to do many more!"

Australia picked up two golds from Emma Nedov (balance beam) and Declan Stacey (men's floor exercise).

Cypriot Michails Krasias was a double champion, winning pommel horse and still rings.

Men's vault champion Douglas Ross ended the competition on a high note for Scotland, which will play host to the 2014 Commonwealth Games and 2015 World Championships.

The 2015 Commonwealth Youth Games are scheduled to take place in Samoa in the South Pacific.
