Angelina Melnikova and Yelena Yeryomina each won junior all-around titles Friday as the Russian women's national championships continued in Penza.

Melnikova, the top qualifier from Wednesday's team competition, captured the all-around title in the Master of Sport category. She scored 58.300, with high scores of 14.733 on vault and 15.067 on balance beam. Melnikova trains in Voronezh under coach Sergei Denisevich, husband of 1987 Soviet world team member Tatiana Tuzhikova. Melnikova turns 14 on July 7, making her too young for this year's Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing.

Moscow's Seda Tutkhalyan finished second (56.533), with a high of 14.733 on balance beam. Another Muscovite, Daria Mikhailova, won the bronze. Tutkhalyan turns 15 on July 7.

Yelena Yeryomina (St. Petersburg) won the all-around in the Candidate for Master of Sport category. Top qualifier Yekaterina Sokova (Vladimir) settled for silver over Viktoria Trykina (Moscow).

Yeryomina, who turns 13 on July 30, trains in St. Petersburg under coaches Vera Kiryashova and Alexander Kiryashov, whose pupils have included Tatiana Nabiyeva and 1996 Olympian Yevgenia Kuznetsova.

The senior women's continues Saturday with the women's team final. Video will be streamed live on the Russian gymnastics federation's official website at sportgymrus.ru.

The Russian men's national championships take place April 10-13.

Robertsdottir Keeps Cool to Win Icelandic Title
(3 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)



A reserve for the vault final at last year's European championships in Moscow, Norma Dögg Robertsdottir told IG that determination helped her overcome two falls from balance beam to win the all-around title at last weekend's Icelandic gymnastics championships. Pictured: Robertsdottir and clubmates Thelma Rut Hermannsdottir (left) and Tinna Odinsdottir (right)

A reserve for the vault final at last year's European championships in Moscow, Norma Dögg Robertsdottir told IG that determination helped her overcome two falls from balance beam to win the all-around title at last weekend's Icelandic gymnastics championships.

"In the morning before we competed, I knew that anyone could win, so I went to the competition very concentrated," she said. "I think that helped me when I fell on beam and helped me finish my floor routine, which was my last apparatus. I think that the key to success is to concentrate on what is in front of you and not let what has already happened get in the way of having a good competition."

In the apparatus finals, Robertsdottir became the first Icelandic female gymnast to compete a 1-1/2 twisting Yurchenko vault, which she paired with a handspring front-half to win gold on the event.


Norma Dögg Robertsdottir (Iceland)

Born April 16, 1996, in Gardabaer, Robertsdottir began training at age 5. She won the 2010 Icelandic junior all-around title, and finished 11th on vault in qualifications at last spring's European championships in Moscow. Robertsdottir trains at Gerpla Gymnastics Club in suburban Reykjavik. She is coached by Gudmundur Thor Brynjolfsson, with assistance from balance beam and floor exercise choreographer Svava Björg Örlygsdottir.

Robertsdottir said she hopes to continue her success at international competitions in 2014, including this month's Nordic championships in Halmstad, Sweden, next month's Europeans in Sofia and this fall's world championships in Nanning.

"My hopes for the Nordic championships are more than for the European championships," she said. "At Nordics, Iceland has much more possibility to win medals, but at the European championships my goal is to reach a higher level and get closer to the vault final. As for the world championships, it's good to see where you stand when you are competing with the best gymnasts in the world."

Robertsdottir said winning the Icelandic all-around title has boosted her motivation for international competitions.

"The victory at the Icelandic Championships has affected me in many ways," she told IG. "I'm readier to take on the bigger assignments like Nordics, Euros and Worlds. I also want to push myself harder than before and I want to achieve greater success."

Following Robertsdottir in the all-around standings were silver medalist Agnes Suto and bronze medalist Thelma Rut Hermannsdottir.

Suto is coached by her mother, former Hungarian world team member Katalin Ujszigeti, and Laos Kiss. She also placed first on uneven bars and second on balance beam.

Hermannsdottir placed third following a fall from uneven bars, but was the only gymnast to win two apparatus titles. She has won five Icelandic senior all-around titles (2008, 2010-2013), a record number of titles that she shares with Berglind Petursdottir, who coached her with Brynjolfsson from 2007-2010. Petursdottir is now a gymnastics judge.

The other two all-around medalists also train at Gerpla.

"The competition in the all-around was very close and exciting, and all three could have won," Brynjolfsson said.

Former Russian national team member Irina Sazonova, who competed as a guest for the Armann club, scored 49.60. 2012 junior all-around champion Sigridur Hronn Bergthorsdottir competed on three apparatuses only, and won medals on vault and balance beam. Bjarki Ásgeirsson won the men's senior all-around title.

Brynjolfsson said the results point to Iceland gymnasts' potential for improvements in the upcoming international season.

"The team is looking to climb back to the podium at the Nordic Championships and also have a good competition at Europeans, trying to climb a few places in the team competition," he said. "Last year Norma Dögg became the first Icelandic female gymnast to be a reserve a final at Europeans, when she placed 11th on vault. With upgrades and new self-confidence she will hopefully come even closer to the final this year."

Mustafina Wins Fourth Straight Russian Title
(9 votes, average 4.56 out of 5)

World and Olympic gold medalist Aliya Mustafina (Moscow) easily defended her all-around title Thursday as the Russian women's national championships continued in Penza.

Mustafina won her fourth consecutive title, scoring 59.566 to lead a Moscow sweep of the medals. Alla Sosnitskaya (58.067) and 2012 Olympian Anastasia Grishina (56.467) rounded out the podium.

The competition also served as the qualification for the senior team finals on Saturday. Moscow topped the qualification over St. Petersburg and the Volga region.

Mustafina, the reigning world champion on balance beam, earned her high score on that event (15.400) with a routine that had just one wobble and a step on the dismount (side somi; switch half; Onodi, double turn; front aerial, front aerial, ff; side aerial; switch ring; round off double tuck). She also scored 15.100 on floor exercise, where she debuted her new triple turn with her leg held vertical (Memmel with an extra turn).

The 19-year-old Russian star said her goal was to get back into focus for competition as she tested her new routines for the European championships next month in Sofia. She stayed out of the gym for most of December and January to relax after a grueling competition season in 2013.

"If you compete without focus, you can get hurt, and, secondly, you have to keep going forward with everyone watching you and not embarrass yourself," Mustafina told the Russian media. "I rested, and so this will be the meet to get me ready for my next meet, which will [help] to get in shape before the European championships."

After 18 months off from competition, Olympic runner-up Viktoria Komova (Voronezh) made her return to competition. The 18-year-old competed three events for her team, scoring a high of 14.900 on bars (inside-Stalder-Shaposhnikova to Pak; inside-Stalder to Shaposhnikova half; inside-Stalder blind to layout Jaeger; inside-Stalder full to Tkatchev; stuck full-out) but erring on balance beam (11.600).

"It was a little scary," Komova said of her comeback. "I fought and prepared for a long time. Now I've come to the senses, to show what I'm ready to do. I had a lot of adrenaline, and couldn't always handle it."


Viktoria Komova (Voronezh)

All five of Russia's 2012 Olympic team members competed. Tula's Ksenia Afanasyeva decided to compete at the last moment for the Central squal, scoring well on vault and floor despite the lingering ankle injury that kept her out of last year's world championships.

"Suddenly I just pulled it together and jumped into the (Central) team," Afanasyeva said. "At the moment the main thing is to get in shape slowly. Today begins the start of the season and I just need to get in shape."

On Wednesday, Angelina Melnikova (Central Region) impressed with an 58.767 all-around score to qualify first to the junior all-around final in the Master of Sport Category. Moscow's Seda Tutkhalyan (58.000) qualified second over Anastasia Dmitriyeva (Volga) with 55.368.

Melnikova, who trains at the same Voronezh club that produced Komova, led the Central team to first place in the junior team championships. Moscow finished second ahead of the Volga region.

In the Candidate for Master of Sport category, Yekaterina Sokova (Vladimir) topped qualification over Yelena Yeryomina (St. Petersburg) and Yelizaveta Kochetkova (Moscow).

The senior women's competition continues Friday with the women's junior all-around final. Video will be streamed live on the Russian gymnastics federation's official website at sportgymrus.ru.

Andrade, Yoder Each Win Three Titles in Aracaju
(2 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)



Rebeca Andrade (Brazil) and Alec Yoder (USA) each won three gold medals in apparatus finals as the 2014 Junior Pan American Championships concluded Sunday in Aracaju, Brazil. Pictured: Andrade, flanked by Rose-Kaying Woo and Flavia Saraiva, in the balance beam medal ceremony

Rebeca Andrade (Brazil) and Alec Yoder (USA) each won three gold medals in apparatus finals as the 2014 Junior Pan American Championships concluded Sunday in Aracaju, Brazil.

The Brazilian women swept Sunday's apparatus finals. Andrade won vault, uneven bars and balance beam and finished second on floor exercise behind teammate Flavia Saraiva.

On Saturday, Saraiva and Andrade finished 1-2 in the all-around. Rose-Kaying Woo, third all-around, led Canada to the overall team title over Brazil.

Andrade, who vaulted an Amanar en route to her first title on Sunday, said she felt more relaxed in the apparatus finals.

"Yesterday I was more nervous because the competition was for the team," said Andrade, Brazil's top Olympic hopeful for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. "Today I was better and I did well. I'm happy."

The tiny Saraiva said she was also pleased with her gold on floor exercise.

"On this event, I tried to enjoy myself and I did," said Saraiva, who stands 4'4" (133 cm). "On beam, even with a fall, I still came in third. I managed to finish the competition well and I'm happy, especially to have won gold in the individual all-around yesterday,"

Woo added a complete set of medals on Sunday; the rising star from Montreal's Gym-Richilieu tied Andrade for first on uneven bars, finished second on balance beam and won the bronze on floor exercise.

The U.S. men continued to dominate, with Yoder winning half the apparatus gold medals (pommel horse, still rings, parallel bars). On Friday, Martin Stretch led the U.S. to the team title and won the all-around gold.

Canada's René Cournoyer won the men's floor exercise gold medal. Luis Porto won vault, the only title for the Brazilian men, while Guatemala's Victor Espinoza took the gold medal on high bar.

The 2014 Junior Pan American Championships serve as one of five continental qualifiers for this summer's Youth Olympic Games, taking place in August in Nanjing, China. The top placing gymnasts each earn one berth for their respective National Olympic Committees. Nine women and eight men can earn berths to the Nanjing through the competition in Aracaju.

Keatings Claims Two Golds in Liverpool
(1 vote, average 5.00 out of 5)



Veteran Daniel Keatings won two gold medals as the 2014 British Gymnastics Championships ended Sunday in Liverpool.

Veteran Daniel Keatings (Huntingdon) won two gold medals as the 2014 British Gymnastics Championships ended Sunday in Liverpool.

Keatings cruised to pommel horse and parallel bars titles in the men's Masters finals, which included the best gymnasts spanning the age groups from the junior and senior qualification.

In an exciting pommel horse final, Keatings defeated Olympic medalists Max Whitlock (South Essex) and Louis Smith (Huntingdon). All three gymnasts upgraded from qualification, with each displaying world-class difficulty scores above 7.0.

Keatings, a 2008 Olympian and alternate to the 2012 bronze medal-winning British squad, claimed a second title on parallel bars with an impressive 16.000 (9.1 Execution score).

Whitlock, who successfully defended his all-around title on Saturday, claimed gold medals on floor exercise and still rings. 2012 Olympians Sam Oldham (vault) and Kristian Thomas (high bar) also won tiles.

In the women's competition, senior all-around champion Rebecca Tunney (Liverpool) won uneven bars with her impressive new combinations (toe-on piked Tkatchev to Bhardwaj; Pak salto to immediate Stalder-Shaposhnikova-half). Kelly Simm (Dynamo) won vault, while all-around runner-up Becky Downie (Notts) won balance beam. After finishing second on vault, Claudia Fragapane (Bristol Hawks) won floor exercise, where she became the first British woman to tumble a full-twisting double layout.

Tyesha Mattis rebounded from her disappointment in the all-around (sixth place with four falls) to win titles on vault and uneven bars in the junior competition. All-around runner-up Teal Grindle (Sapphire) won balance beam. All-around champion Amy Tinkler (South Durham) tied Catherine Lyons (Europa) for the gold medal on floor exercise.
