Romania's Larisa Iordache added two more event titles at the Elite Gym Massilia, which concluded Sunday in Marseille, France.

The "Top Gym" finals included the highest scorers, juniors and seniors, from both Friday's Open competition and Saturday's Masters edition.

Iordache added golds on balance beam and floor exercise. She took the balance beam gold with the high score of the competition, 15.633 (6.9 Difficulty), landing both her tucked and layout fulls and sticking her ro, ff, triple twist dismount. On Saturday, the 2012 Olympian led Romania to the team title and won the all-around title as well.

Munteanu took second on balance beam with a ff, tucked full and triple twist dismount of her own, and then added the floor exercise silver as well behind her star teammate.

Russia's Alla Sosnitskaya won the vault gold medal with a layout Podkopayeva (slightly messy in the air) and double-twisting Yurchenko. Iordache won the silver with double- and single-twisting Yurchenkos, while British junior Ellie Downie took third with the same vaults. (The vault final competition was held under junior rules that allowed two vaults from the same family).

Junior hope Louise Vanhille won the gold medal on uneven bars for France despite an improvisation after her third transition (Maloney to Pak; Stalder-Shaposhnikova uprise free-hip half; Jaeger; double layout). 2008 Russian Olympian Yekaterina Kramarenko, third all-around on Saturday, picked up the silver with a Stalder-full to Van Leeuwen (Maloney-half); toe-blind to Jaeger; toe-full to Pak salto, full-twisting double dismount).

Downie won another bronze on floor exercise, mounting with a clean 1 1/2 to Arabian double front.

Read the caption. It clearly says the photo is Munteanu and not Iordache.
