Swiss star Giulia Steingruber grabbed two golds and a silver in the finals at the 8th Doha World Challenger Cup, held Thursday and Friday in Qatar.

Steingruber, the two-time European champion on vault, handily won the title on on her best event with a layout Rudi and Yurchenko full. She averaged 14.575 to top Vietnamese world medalist Phan Thị Hà Thanh (14.100 average) and Slovenian Teja Belak (13.900).

On floor, the Swiss powerhouse appeared to walk into her four tumbling passes (full-in double layout; double layout; double tuck; double pike) to win the title with a healthy 14.550. First-year senior Laura Jurca (Romania) was second with 13.800 over Swistzerland's Ilaria Käslin (13.750).

The elegant Phan was won the balance beam title with just a few wobbles (front aerial; ff, two-foot layout; side somi), scoring 14.250 to Steingruber's 14.125. Romanian Olympian Diana Bulimar won the bronze with 14.025

French Olympian Youna Dufournet won the uneven bars title (Maloney-half; toe-half to Jaeger; toe-on piked Tkatchev to Pak; low double layout), edging Bulimar, 13.650-13.600. Jessica Diacci brought another medal for Switzerland with the bronze, bumping top qualifier Jurca off the podium.

In the men's competition, Armenia was the only double winner with Harutyum Merdinyan swinging to the pommel horse title and Artur Davtyan winning men's vault (clean layout Randi; double-twisting Tsukahara).

U.S. Olympian Jake Dalton won the men's floor exercise title, just edging top qualifier Diego Hypólito of Brazil, 15.475-15.425. Dalton tumbled to a 6.7 Difficulty score (1 1/2-twisting double layout; whip, piked Arabian double front; 1 1/2 to front double twist; 2 1/2 front full; layout Thomas; triple twist) while Hypólito earned 6.5 (layout half to Randi; Arabian double front to front full; 2 1/2 to front double twist; triple twist) Japan's Shotaro Shirai, older brother of superstar Kenzo, was third (15.025; 6.8D) but could have won the title had he not landed out of bounds on his opening 3 1/2, layout barani full pass.

Olympic still rings king Arthur Zanetti was once again untouchable on his speciality, winning the title by three tenths over Armenia's Artur Tovmasyan, 15.725-15.425. Romania's Andrei Muntean was third with 15.325.

Oleg Stepko (Azerbaijan) performed his lengthy routine well to take the title on parallel bars, ending with a near stick on his double pike (15.750). Colombia's Jossimar Calvo capped off his intricate routine with a full-in off the end to place a close second (15.725) over Muntean (15.550).

On high bar, Argentina's Nicolas Cordoba grabbed first with a routine featuring three Tkatchevs (layout; layout-half and straddled-half) and a stuck layout double-double. Japan's Kazuyuki Takeda (Kovacs; Kolman) matched the Argentine's D-score but settled for second.

Top qualifier Danell Leyva (United States) fell on his Kolman to place fourth.

Dutch star Epke Zonderland took the bronze (15.650/7.0D).

On still rings, Olympic champion Arthur Zanetti (Brazil) regained his top footing over lead qualifier Eleftherios Petrounias (Greece). Turkish gymnast Ibrahim Colak bumped Vernyayev out of the bronze by .025.

Slovenia's Tjaša Kysselef won the silver with over her teammate Teja Belak.

Sweden's Jonna Adlerteg was the class of the field on uneven bars, showing a Shaposhnikova, uprise-full to Tkatchev; Jaeger; toe-on piked Tkatchev to Pak; Maloney; and a double layout dismount.

Romania's Andreea Munteanu took gold on balance beam, her usual precision marred only by a bobble after her opening front aerial. She continued unwavered, hitting her ff, tucked full; a punch front; very tidy leaps; a ff, ff triple twist (short on rotation).

Chusovitina, Shirai Lead Cottbus Qualification
(5 votes, average 4.20 out of 5)

Superstars Oksana Chusovitina (Uzbekistan) and Kenzo Shirai (Japan) were among the high scorers on the first day of qualification at the 2015 Tournament of Masters in Cottbus, Germany.

Superstars Oksana Chusovitina (Uzbekistan) and Kenzo Shirai (Japan) were among the high scorers on the first day of qualification at the 2015 Tournament of Masters in Cottbus, Germany.

The 39th Tournament of Masters, the first FIG World Challenge event of the 2015 season, features gymnasts from 36 nations.

Chusovitina, who has competed at more Cottbus events than any gymnast, handily topped the vault qualification. The six-time Olympian averaged 14.799 to qualify first over Slovenians Teja Belak (14.216 average) and Tjaša Kysselef (13.966).

Swedish Olympian Jonna Adlerteg had the highest score of the women's qualification, earning 15.033 (6.5 Difficulty). Portugal's Ana Filipa Martins (13.833) qualified second over Greece's Evangelia Plyta (13.466).

Shirai had the top score of the day with his incredible 16.300 (7.6 D) on men's floor exercise, where he crushed the field with his spectactular 7.6 D-score. More than a point behind, German veteran Matthias Fahrig was second (15.100) over two-time world champion Diego Hypolito of Brazil (15.075).

On pommel horse, French specialist Cyril Tommasone scored 15.775 (7.0 D) to lead the qualification over Ukrainian star Oleg Vernyayev (15.475/6.9) and Slovenia's Sašo Bertoncelj (15.050/6.5).

With one tenth higher in difficulty, Greek gymnast Eleftherios Petrounias edged Olympic champion Arthur Zanetti, 15.575-15.475. Vernyayev finished third (15.275), qualifying for two out of three finals.

Qualification competition continues Friday with the remaining events. Vernyayev, the reigning World Cup all-around champion, is scheduled to compete in all three men's events. In the women's competition, first-year senior Andreea Iridon (ninth on uneven bars) and teammate Andreea Munteanu are expected to dominate the balance beam qualification.

Why should I upgrade to Internet Explorer 7? Microsoft has redesigned Internet Explorer from the ground up, with better security, new capabilities, and a whole new interface. Many changes resulted from the feedback of millions of users who tested prerelease versions of the new browser. The most compelling reason to upgrade is the improved security. The Internet of today is not the Internet of five years ago. There are dangers that simply didn't exist back in 2001, when Internet Explorer 6 was released to the world. Internet Explorer 7 makes surfing the web fundamentally safer by offering greater protection against viruses, spyware, and other online risks.
