Larisa Iordache led Romania to victory over Italy, Belgium and Spain on Saturday at the 2nd Novara Cup in Novara, Italy.

2012 Olympian Larisa Iordache led Romania to victory over Italy, Belgium and Spain on Saturday in Novara, Italy.

The Romanians' strength on vault — where they averaged above 14.70 — powered them over the host nation, 226.50-225.15. Belgium claimed third with 218.55, while Spain struggled to fourth (211.20).

Italy had the best team total on floor exercise, while Laura Waem led Belgium to first on uneven bars.

Iordache earned the highest score on every event to easily take the all-around title with 59.75. She had her highest scores on balance beam (ff, tucked full; RO two-foot layout; double turn; RO ff triple twist; 15.30) and vault (double-twisting Yurchenko, 15.00). She performed confidently on uneven bars Stalder-full to Maloney, back uprise pirouette to blind change, Jaeger; toe-on piked Tkatchev to Pak; Maloney-half; toe-full to stuck full-twisting double; 14.85) and on floor exercise (tucked and piked full-ins; triple twist; double pike; 14.60).

2012 Italian Olympian Carlotta Ferlito (56.30) took second all-around, edging teammate Elisa Meneghini (56.10).

Two-time Venezuelan Olympian Jessica López placed eighth all-around with the second-best score on uneven bars (14.60).

National uneven bars champion Martina Rizzelli suffered an injury last week, said Enrico Casella, Italy's national technical director. All seven of Italy's gymnasts in Novaro will go to Glasgow for the world championships beginning at the end of the month, he said.
