Vernyayev Wins Twice in Cottbus
(1 vote, average 5.00 out of 5)



Ukraine's Oleg Vernyayev grabbed two titles as the 40th Tournament of Masters concluded Sunday at the Lausitz Arena in Cottbus, Germany.

Ukraine's Oleg Vernyayev grabbed two titles as the 40th Tournament of Masters concluded Sunday at the Lausitz Arena in Cottbus, Germany.

Vernyayev, the only gymnast to qualify to every final in Cottbus, won vault and high bar to make him the most successful gymnast of the competition. A fall on parallel bars (stutz to one rail) left him in fifth place on his best event. On Saturday, he picked up the bronze on floor exercise and silver on pommel horse.

On vault, Vernyayev was as close to perfect as he could be on his first vault, sticking cold his Dragulescu (15.333). He also stuck his triple-twisting Tsukahara, albeit with some arm waves and loose knee form (15.133).

China's Qu Ruiyang took second on vault with a triple-twisting Tsukahara (low landing, 14.733) and layout Randi (15.066). Swiss gymnast Benjamin Gischard won the bronze, just .066 behind Qu, with a layout Randi and Tsukahara 2 1/2.

Marcel Nguyen won parallel bars with an aggressive routine, which included a double back between the bars and his trademark full-twisting double back dismount, nearly stuck. His gold was the second for the Germans after Sophie Scheder's gold on uneven bars on Saturday.

Switzerland's Christian Baumann took second with a very clean routine with a diverse set of skills, ending with a double pike with one step. Germany's Luke Dauser, second to Nguyen in qualifications, finished third.

On high bar, Vernyayev cooly hit his set for the title (Yamawaki-half; layout Tkatchev-half, Tak-half to Tkatchev-half, Tak-full to Yamawaki; layout double-double with a step). Baumann tied Switzerland's Pablo Brägger, the top qualifier, for the silver.

In the women's competition, Poland's Katarzyna Jurkowska-Kowalska won balance beam. Wearing a gorgeous red and white leotard, Jurkowska-Kowalska performed a rather disjointed routine (kickover, ff; side aerial; switch ring; front aerial, sheep jump, side somi; full turn with leg horizontal to full turn; illusion; full-twisting layout gainer dismount) that had hints of wonderful artistry.

Scheder won the silver medal over top qualifier Sanne Wevers (Netherlands). Wevers, the silver medalist at last fall's world championships, was fully in command of her routine, hitting her Luconi mount (RO, full-twisting back handspring on), namesake turn (double turn with leg held horizontal), front aerial, wolf jump; but then dropped off on her triple turn. She had the audience behind her, applauding in unison as she got back up to finish (full turn with leg held to full turn; double turn to leap; split leap to Kochetkova; layout gainer dismount). She had boisterous applause from the audience on each skill, who appreciated the difficulty and artistry of her set.

Her teammate Lisa Top was on top on floor exercise, despite stepping out of bounds on three of her four passes (piked Arabian double front, double front, double tuck). Jurkowska-Kowalska (second) and Scheder (third) each picked up another medal.

The FIG World Challenge Cup series continues next weekend in Ljubljana.

Three-time defending champion David Belyavsky (Yekaterinburg), the top qualifier from Wednesday's team competition, fell on vault and parallel bars on Friday to place third.

Cottbus' Tournament of Masters Turns 40
(4 votes, average 3.00 out of 5)



The annual Tournament of Masters marked its 40th edition as it opened on Thursday at the Lausitz Arena in Cottbus, Germany. Pictured: Uzbekistan's Oksana Chusovitina, coached in Cottbus by friend and former teammate Svetlana Boginskaya, qualified first on vault, sixth on bars and fourth on beam.

The annual Tournament of Masters marked its 40th edition as it opened on Thursday at the Lausitz Arena in Cottbus, Germany.

Gymnasts from 34 nations were in attendance, most of whom were eager to get some last minute experience before the upcoming Olympic qualification event in Rio de Janeiro.

Fittingly for its 40th anniversary, the 40-year-old legend Oksana Chusovitina (Uzbekistan) was on hand in Cottbus, qualifying first on vault and sixth on uneven bars on Thursday, and fourth on balance beam Friday. Chusovitina, coached in Cottbus by friend and former teammate Svetlana Boginskaya, is the event's most decorated athlete in its history — the master of all masters.

Chusovitina first competed at the competition for the Soviet Union in 1989, when it was an all-around event. Like Chusovitina, who has competed for the Soviet Union, the United team, Uzbekistan, Germany, and back to Uzbekistan, the Tournament of Masters has gone through several stages in its 40 years. No longer an all-around competition, it experimented with the now extinct "winner's final" format before settling into the FIG World Cup schedule for apparatus.

China's Wu Jing attempted a double-twisting Tsukahara (6.0 Difficulty) and layout Rudi (6.2 D) but fell on her first vault to finish second ahead of Slovenia's Teja Belak.

Fresh off her all-around win at the Stuttgart World Cup, Germany's Sophie Scheder qualified first on uneven bars (14.850/6.4) over China's Zhu Xiaofang (14.800/6.2) and Dutch gymnast Sanne Wevers (14.050/5.6).

Wevers, the silver medalist on beam at last year's world championships in Glasgow, qualified first on beam with (14.750/6.0) over Scheder (14.150/5.5) and Poland's Katarzyna Jurkowska-Kowalska (14.000/5.8)/

Germany's Pauline Schäfer, the bronze medalist behind Wevers in Glasgow, was forced to scratch the competition with a sprained shoulder.

Dutch gymnast Lisa Top qualified first on floor exercise (13.850/5.6) over Jurkowska-Kowalska (13.650/5.4) and Germany's Antonia Alicke (13.450/5.4).

In the men's competition, Ukrainian star Oleg Vernyayev lived up to his hype, competing all six events and qualified to every final. The 22 year old from Donetsk topped the leaderboard on still rings and vault, qualified second on pommel horse and, third on floor exercise, and parallel bars, and sixth on high bar.

Diego Hypólito, who won the floor exercise title last weekend at the World Cup Challenge in Doha, qualified first on floor and fifth on vault.

China's Weng Hao, 18, brought the highest individual score with his 16.000 on pommel horse (7.1 D). Mexican world medalist Daniel Corral qualified third in a top-notch final that also includes world and Olympic medalist Louis Smith of Great Britain, who qualified sixth (14.350/6.9).

Vernyayev's 15.350 could manage only third on parallel bars behind Germans Marcel Nguyen (15.550/6.6) and Lukas Dauser (15.550/6.7).

The Swiss qualified 1-2 on high bar, with Pablo Brägger topping qualification (15.150/7.0) over compatriot Christian Baumann (14.850/6.4) and Germany's Andreas Toba(14.800/6.8).

Three-time Germany Olympian Fabian Hambüchen was absent with a shoulder injury that will force him out of the upcoming Olympic qualification event, the German Gymnastics Federation announced.

Competition continues Saturday with the first day of finals.

Volga Team Wins As Russian Nationals for Men Begins
(2 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)



Olympians David Belyavsky and Denis Ablyazin led Volga to first in the men's team competition as the Russian nationals began Wednesday in Penza.

Volga took the senior team title as the Russian nationals for men began Wednesday in Penza.

Olympians David Belyavsky and Denis Ablyazin led Volga to the gold medal (430.700) by a large margin over over Siberia (424.366) and Moscow (422.068).

Penza native Ablyazin, who competed three events, had the three of the highest scores of the night with his 15.700 on floor exercise, 15.667 on still rings, and 15.533 on vault.

The highest individual score of the night came from Belyavsky, with his healthy 15.867 on parallel bars. He qualified first to the all-around finals with 90.367, a much better showing the 85.464 that landed him in sixth place earlier this month at the World Cup in Glasgow.

Nikolai Kuksenkov, third at the Stuttgart World Cup a week and a half ago, qualified second all-around (89.799), with top scores of 15.433 on pommel horse and 15.233 on high bar. Moscow's Nikita Nagornyy (89.033), qualified third, 15.533 on floor exercise, 15.300 on vault, and 15.633 on parallel bars.

In the junior competition, Volga Team No. 3 won the title with 400.868 over Siberia (389.997) and Saint Petersburg (387.898).

Kazan's Alexander Chicherov (82.367) and Barnaul's Sergei Naydin of (82.999) were the top qualifiers in the junior master of sport and candidate for master of sport categories, respectively.

The women's competition will be held April 4-10. World and Olympic champion Aliya Mustafina, who missed last year's world championship with injury, is expected to compete two events. Two-time world uneven bars champion Viktoria Komova, however, has withdrawn from the competition with a sore back. She went to the doctor for imaging on her back, but coaches told the media they believe the soreness comes from increased workload.

Competition continues Thursday in Penza with the first of two days of all-around competition.

(1 vote, average 5.00 out of 5)

Switzerland's Giulia Steingruber won her second title as the 9th World Challenge Cup ended Saturday in Doha, Qatar.

Steingruber added the floor exercise title to go with the vault gold medal she won in the first day of finals on Friday. The 22 year old tumbled to first (14.700) over Romanian Olympian Diana Bulimar (14.125) and Hungarian Zsófia Kovács (13.925).

Romania's Catalina Ponor, 29, won balance beam, making a triumphant comeback from the calf injury that kept her out of last fall's world championships in Glasgow. With her calf heavily wrapped; Ponor performed well. After a small check on her switch ring opening, she continued with an Onodi, ff two-foot layout series; switch side; back dive 1/4; RO double pike.

Brazil's Thauany Araújo, fourth in qualification, won the silver (ff, two layouts; punch front; side aerial; switch leap, back tuck; RO, ff, double pike) over Portugal's Ana Filipa Martins (ff, ff, layout; front aerial to split leap; side somi; 2 1/2 dismount), who also won the bronze on uneven bars. China's Bai Yaiwen, the silver medalist on beam at the 2014 Worlds, placed fourth after after grabbing the beam on her RO two-foot layout. Teammate Luo Huan had the highest D score (6.0) started off well with a RO two-foot layout; and front aerial, switch leap to back tuck series, but fell on her Onodi and double pike dismount to finish last.

In the men's competition Huang Mingqi won vault with beautiful form (triple-twisting Tsukahara, Randi). Australia's Christopher Remkes vaulted a Dragulescu and Tsukahara 2 1/2 to win the silver over floor exercise champion Diego Hypolito (Brazil).

Azerbaijan's Oleg Stepko, who punched his ticket to the Olympic Games by winning the bronze on parallel bars in Glasgow, took gold Saturday with a precise routine (15.825, 6.8D), ending with a double pike (small hop). Two-time world medalist Manrique Larduet took silver, finished right behind, showing off the fantastic amplitude that has become his trademark. Larduet, who ended with a stuck double front half, scored 15.775 (6.7D) to take silver over Vietnam's Pham Phuoc Hung (15.350, 6.7). Top qualifier He Youxiao (China) missed a stutz to one bar and had to jump off.

Japan's Fuya Maeno, 20, won high bar with a very clean but simple routine (Yamawaki-half; stoep full to Yamawaki; layout double-double). Great Britain's Ashley Watson took silver with the most difficult routine of the final (Cassina; Kolman; Def; full-twisting layout double; 6.6 D). Croatia's Marijo Možnik, inventor of the popular Tkatchev-half turn that bears his name, won the bronze.

The FIG World Cup series continues next weekend with the Tournament of Masters in Cottbus, Germany.
