(3 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

Venezuela's Jessica López and the U.S. men struck more gold Sunday as the Anadia World Challenge Cup concluded in Portugal.

The U.S. men took two more titles to win four of the six finals in Anadia. Eddie Penev, who won floor exercise on Saturday, won vault (stuck Yurchenko half on to double-twisting handspring front layout; Yurchenko 2 1/2).

Newcomer Audrys Nin (Dominican Republic) won the silver, impressing with a booming Dragulescu (one small step), and a Tsukahara 2 1/2 (large step over the line). China's won the bronze (triple-twisting Tsukahara; short Randi).

U.S. Olympian Sam Mikulak, second to Penev on floor exercise, won the gold medal on high bar (Kolman; layout Tkatchev; Rybalko; half Tak to Tkatchev-half; stuck layout double double) and bronze on parallel bars.

France's Kévin Antoniotti showed impeccable lines to win the gold medal on parallel bars with 15.500, edging two-time world champion Mitja Petkovšek of Slovenia (15.475).

López, who won uneven bars on Saturday, took the balance beam title (ff ff, two-foot layout; switch half; sheep jump; front aerial, wolf jump; side somi; 2 1/2 twist) over Slovenia's Teja Belak. Belak, Saturday's vault champion, performed a side somi; full turn with leg held horizontal; front tuck; and stuck double tuck to place ahead of Portugal's Diana Abrantes.

Portugal's Ana Filipa Martins won a weak women's floor exercise final, in which all the finalists mounted with double pikes or double tucks. Austria's Jasmin Mader won the bronze medal over Uzbekistan's Yelena Rega.

The FIG World Cup series continues with the Ghent World Challenge Cup, Aug. 23-24 in Belgium.
