2012 Olympians Denis Ablyazin, David Belyavsky, Viktoria Komova and Nikolai Kuksenkov won gold medals in Saturday's apparatus finals at the 2014 Russian Cup in Penza.

Komova uprgaded her uneven bars routine (adding an inside-Stalder full to Tkatchev) to take the uneven bars gold medal over all-around champion Aliya Mustafina by one-tenth of a point. Daria Spiridonova won the bronze medal.

Komova, who is still recovering from a nagging ankle injury, competed uneven bars only in Penza. She said she hopes to be ready on balance beam to join Russia's team at the world championships in Nanning, China.

Alla Sotnitskaya won the women's vault title with a double-twisting Yurchenko and layout Podkopayeva. Veteran Tatiana Nabiyeva took second (double-twisting Yurchenko and Podkopayeva) while top qualifier Maria Paseka crashed her Amanar to place third.

Top qualifier Denis Ablyazin withdrew from the final after falls on floor and vault during Thursday's team final.

Kuksenkov, a 2012 Olympian for Ukraine, won the gold medal on pommel horse with 15.600 (7.0 Difficulty), topping Belyavsky (15.000) and junior Ivan Stretovich (14.433)

Ablyazin, who recently married 2008 Olympian Ksenia Semyonova, took the title on still rings with 15.600. Pavel Pavlov (15.133) finished second over all-around champion Nikita Ignatyev (15.100).
