Italian Women Dominate as Mediterranean Games End
(3 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

The Italian women won three more gold medals as the 17th Mediterranean Games concluded Monday in Mersin, Turkey.

Veteran Vanessa Ferrari, who led the Italian women to the team gold on Friday and won the all-around title Sunday, added the floor exercise gold and balance beam bronze to her haul.

Chiara Gandolfi took the uneven bars title for Italy (Maloney-half; elgrip full to Jaeger; double layout).

After winning the bronze on uneven bars, Giorgia Campana claimed the gold on balance beam (Kochetkova immediate layout stepout; front aerial, sheep jump; side somi; double pike).

Egyptian gymnast Fadwa Mahmoud won the women's vault gold medal with a frightening handspring double front. Mahmoud overrotated the vault so badly she bounced directly onto her head (click for video).

Greece was the most successful in the men's finals, with golds for Eleftherios Kosmidis on floor exercise and Eleftherios Petrounias on still rings.

World finalist Sašo Bertoncelj (Slovenia) won pommel horse, Spain's Nestor Abad won the gold on men's vault and French gymnast Kevin Antoniotti took the gold on parallel bars.

The Mediterranean Games ended on a successful note for the hosts when Turkish gymnast Ümit Şamiloğlu won the gold medal on high bar.

The 2017 Mediterranean Games will return to Spain, which played host to the 15th Mediterranean Games in Almería. Alexandria, Egypt, also had bid, but lost out to the Catalonian city of Tarragona.
