(3 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

Veteran Daniel Keatings won two gold medals as the 2014 British Gymnastics Championships ended Sunday in Liverpool.

Veteran Daniel Keatings (Huntingdon) won two gold medals as the 2014 British Gymnastics Championships ended Sunday in Liverpool.

Keatings cruised to pommel horse and parallel bars titles in the men's Masters finals, which included the best gymnasts spanning the age groups from the junior and senior qualification.

In an exciting pommel horse final, Keatings defeated Olympic medalists Max Whitlock (South Essex) and Louis Smith (Huntingdon). All three gymnasts upgraded from qualification, with each displaying world-class difficulty scores above 7.0.

Keatings, a 2008 Olympian and alternate to the 2012 bronze medal-winning British squad, claimed a second title on parallel bars with an impressive 16.000 (9.1 Execution score).

Whitlock, who successfully defended his all-around title on Saturday, claimed gold medals on floor exercise and still rings. 2012 Olympians Sam Oldham (vault) and Kristian Thomas (high bar) also won tiles.

In the women's competition, senior all-around champion Rebecca Tunney (Liverpool) won uneven bars with her impressive new combinations (toe-on piked Tkatchev to Bhardwaj; Pak salto to immediate Stalder-Shaposhnikova-half). Kelly Simm (Dynamo) won vault, while all-around runner-up Becky Downie (Notts) won balance beam. After finishing second on vault, Claudia Fragapane (Bristol Hawks) won floor exercise, where she became the first British woman to tumble a full-twisting double layout.

Tyesha Mattis rebounded from her disappointment in the all-around (sixth place with four falls) to win titles on vault and uneven bars in the junior competition. All-around runner-up Teal Grindle (Sapphire) won balance beam. All-around champion Amy Tinkler (South Durham) tied Catherine Lyons (Europa) for the gold medal on floor exercise.
