Gymnasts from five nations grabbed gold medals Sunday as the 36th Tournament of Masters concluded in Cottbus, Germany.

The top qualifiers on the two women's event repeated their rankings to take the titles. Greece's Vasiliki Millousi claimed balance beam with her usual clean performance (layout stepout mount; side aerial; switch leap back tuck; sheep jump; side somi; switch ring; front aerial, ff, layout; double pike).

Romanian world medalist Diana Chelaru took the floor titles (full-in; whip triple twist; double pike; double tuck).

Ukraine's Igor Radvilov, who won the vault title at the pre-Olympic test event in January, prevailed again with two 7.0-Difficulty vaults (Tsukahara double pike and Dragulescu).

2005 world champion Mitja Petkovsek (Slovenia) won parallel bars.

Flying Dutchman Epke Zonderland out-tricked the high bar field (7.5 Difficulty), upgrading from qualification with a Cassina to Kovacs; Kolman; and a half-Tak to Gaylord 2.

The FIG Challenger Cup series continues March 28-30 in Doha, Qatar.
