Russian junior Yevgenia Shelgunova won the all-around and led her team to first place at the 2012 Elite Gym Massilia, held Saturday in Marseille, France.

Shelgunova, 15, teamed up with 14-year-olds Maria Kharenkova and Viktoria Kuzmina to give Russia the team title over two teams from Canada. All three gymnasts were members of Russia's first-place squad at the 2012 Junior Europeans in Brussels, where Shelgunova placed second around to Italy's Enus Mariani.

China also sent a junior squad to Marseille, but only two scores on uneven bars left them well out of the medals. (Visa complications left Mei Jie at home).

Shelgunova scored 56.05 to win the all-around gold over China's Chen Siyi (55.20) and Sweden's Ida Gustaffson (54.40). Chen edged Shelgunova for the top scores on both uneven bars and balance beam, but a weak floor exercise kept her in second. Chen, 14, trains under Xiong Jingbin and Zhang Xia, who coached Jiang Yuyuan and Deng Linlin to Olympic gold.

Kharenkova finished a close fourth (54.25) over 2012 Canadian Olympian Victoria Moors (54.20) and Kuzmina (54.10). Mira Boumejmajen was the top gymnast for France in seventh (53.40).

On Friday, Spanish national team member Silvia Colussi-Pelaez (Futures Gymnastics Center in Mississauga) won the Open Massilia title. She improved her score Saturday by .35 to place ninth all-around.

French junior Louise Vanhille, who turned 14 on Nov. 6, took second in the open division ahead of Canada's Sydney Townsend, 12. Townsend trains at Revolution Gymnastics in Waterloo, Ont. under coaches Aaron Brokenshire and Angela Brokenshire. She won gold medals in the all-around and on floor exercise in the novice division at the Canadian championships in May.

Competition concludes Sunday in Marseille with the apparatus finals.
