Nordic Nations Dominate Northern Europeans
(8 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

Nordic gymnasts dominated the 2012 Northern European Championships, held Saturday and Sunday in Glasgow.

Gymnasts from Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden combined for 10 of the 14 titles available at the new Commonwealth Arena.

The annual Northern European championships is held among 10 nations: Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Ireland, Isle of Man, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Sweden and Wales.

The Welsh women took three gold medals, however, snatching the team title back from the defending Swedes.

Sweden's Ida Gustafsson defended her all-around title from 2011, earning the top mark of the women's competition with 14.30 on uneven bars. Welsh standout Angel Romaeo took second all-around over Sweden's Emma Larsson.

In apparatus finals, Larsson won vault and uneven bars for Sweden. British national team member Jessica Hogg, the 2010 Northern European champion, won balance beam and floor exercise for Wales.

Finland won the men's team title ahead of Norway and Denmark. Defending champion Wales fell to fourth.

Denmark's Helge Vammen won the men's all-around title over Clinton Purnell (Wales) and Kasper Holopainen (Finland).

Finland was the most successful in men's event finals. Veteran Tomi Tuuha won floor exercise, Markku Vahtila claimed still rings and Heikki Niva — the 2011 Northern European all-around champion — was first on parallel bars.

Vammen added the pommel horse title and Purnell won men's vault. Joachim Hanche-Olsen ended the competition with the gold on high bar for Norway.

Glasgow will see more international competition Dec. 8 with its annual World Cup event. The city of Glasgow will play host to the 2014 Commonwealth Games and 2015 World Gymnastics Championships.
