He, a member of China's gold medal-winning team at the 2006 Worlds, won her first national title. Huang Qiushuang finished second and Xiao Sha third.

"I have won a world title and the Asian Games all-around, but I have never won the national championship," He said. "A dream came true today, I am very happy."

Feng won the men's all-around over Guo Weiyang and Feng Zhe. Feng Jing is the youngest men's world champion in history, having won in 2001 at age 16.

World and Olympic gold medalist Cheng Fei won titles on vault and floor exercise. The two-time Olympian, who turns 21 on May 29, said she has no plans to retire.

"Age to me is just a number," she said. "If my health permits me, I am sure I will continue competing in order to contribute to Chinese gymnastics."

Jiang Yuyuan, who placed fifth all-around with a disastrous 11.900 on uneven bars, rebounded in finals to win the event.

Sui Li won balance beam over Li Shanshan, also a member of China's Olympic champion team from 2008.

Olympic uneven bars champion He Kexin, suffering from a hand injury, skipped her forte but competed on the other three events.

Chen Yibing was the only member of China's 2008 Olympic champion team to win a medal for the men in Jinan. The Olympic champion on still rings finished second to Yan Minyong on the event.

"I am very happy to be pushed by the young guy, which in Chinese gymnastics is a good thing," said Chen, 24. "Let a hundred flowers bloom, and China will be the future of gymnastics!"

The competition also served as the preliminaries for the 11th National Games, which will be held Oct. 11-23 in Shandong.
