Japan Shines As Asian Games Begin
(6 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

Yuya Kamoto led the Japanese men to a solid team victory on Sunday as gymnastics began at the 17th Asian Games in Incheon, Korea.

The Japanese men snatched the team gold medal on Sunday as gymnastics began at the 17th Asian Games in Incheon, Korea.

Yuya Kamoto, the 2010 Youth Olympic Games all-around champion, led his Japanese team to a solid victory over the host Korean team and defending champion China. Japan outscored Korea, 355.475-350.875. The Chinese team finished less than a point behind Korea, scoring 350.300.

The Japanese had the top team totals on floor exercise (tied with China), pommel horse, still rings and high bar. Korea had the best score on men's vault, while North Korea, fourth as a team, was the top team on parallel bars.

Both Japan and China sent their B squads, to save their top stars for the upcoming world championships in Nanning. The host Korean team sent its first-rate team, led by world and Olympic vault champion Yang Hak Seon.

The Japanese men had the top three spots in the individual all-around qualification, though only two gymnasts per nation can advance. Kamoto scored 88.850, followed by Masayoshi Yamamoto (87.950) and Yusuke Saito (87.925). Korea's Park Min Soo was the third qualifier with 87.600.

Japan also had topped the qualification on half of the events. Shotaro Shirai – older brother of world champion Kenzo Shirai – topped five-time Olympic champion Zou Kai (China) for the top score on floor exercise.

Tomomasa Hasegawa qualified first on pommel horse with 15.500, and Kamoto was the top scorer on parallel bars with 15.925.

China's Liao Junlin led qualification on still rings (15.450) and Zou was once again on top on high bar (15.350).

North Korea's star vaulter Ri Se Gwang topped continental rival Yang Hak Seon on vault. Yang, rumored to be suffering from a sore hamstring, did not attempt his namesake vault (triple-twisting layout handspring front) and qualified second.

Competition continues Monday with the women's team and individual qualification.

Ablyazin 'All Right' to Compete at World Championships
(10 votes, average 3.80 out of 5)

Russian star Denis Ablyazin has been cleared by doctors to compete at next month's world championships in China, Russian coach Valentina Rodionenko said.

"Everything with Denis Ablyazin is all right and he will compete in the world championships," she said.

At the recent Russian Cup, Ablyazin withdrew from the event finals on floor exercise and vault because of knee pain. He flew to Germany to be examined by an orthopedist after the competition.

Denis Ablyazin at the 2014 Russian Cup

Ablyazin is a key member of Russia's team, winning floor exercise, still rings and vault at May's European championships in Sofia, where he led Russia to the team title as well. He was the bronze medalist on floor exercise and silver medalist on vault at the 2012 Olympic Games.

Rodionenko said that Ablyazin's injury was not as serious as feared.

"In Germany, he had a full medical examination," she said. "The examination showed that no treatment is needed for Ablyazin. And the problem was not even in the knee, as originally thought, but in the place where his thigh muscles are attached to his knee. He may have a tiny tear there, but the German specialists released him to compete his three events."

Eight gymnasts have been confirmed for the world championships based on their performances at the Russian Cup, Rodionenko said. On the men's side, Ablyazin, David Belyavsky, Nikita Ignatyev and Nikolai Kuksenkov have earned spots on the team.

Other gymnasts in contention are newcomers Daniil Kazachkov, Vladislav Polyashov, Ivan Stretovich and Roman Suetin.

"These young guys are really motivated," Rodionenko said. "They are ready to fight to get onto the team."

For the women's team, Maria Kharenkova, Aliya Mustafina, Maria Paseka and Daria Spiridonova have been named to the team. Ksenia Afanasyeva, Viktoria Komova, Tatiana Nabiyeva and Alla Sosnitskaya are in contention for the two remaining spots.

Olympians Afanasyeva and Komova are both recovering from injuries but still have a chance to be named to the team. Afanasyeva skipped the Russian Cup, while Komova competed uneven bars only and won the title on the event.

"Ksenia didn't compete in the Russian Cup, but she's recovered from her surgery and training again," Rodionenko said. "She was world champion on floor exercise and her vault is very strong. But we're not going to take risks. If Komova and Afanasyeva feel they are not ready, we won't risk taking them."

The 2014 World Gymnastics Championships take place Oct. 3-12 in Nanning, China.

German Teams Top Romania, Switzerland
(6 votes, average 4.33 out of 5)

The German men and women were victorious over Romania and Switzerland at a tri-meet held Saturday in the Swiss city of Obersiggenthal.

The competition format had up to five gymnasts competing on each event, with the top three scores counting for the team total.

In the women's competition, Germany upset Romania, the 2014 European champion, 220.000-219.050. The Romanian women had the highest team scores on vault, balance beam and floor exercise, but lost more than 7 points to Germany on uneven bars.

The German gymnasts counted all scores in the 14s on bars. Lisa Katharina Hill had the high score with 14.650, followed by Kim Bui's 14.600 and Sophie Scheder's 14.150.

Larisa Iordache, who won the Romanian national title last week, took first place once again. With the best score on three of the four events, Iordache won by more than 2 points over Swiss Olympian Giulia Steingruber, 58.950-56.700. Germany's Pauline Schäfer won the bronze with 55.600.

The German men were also victorious, scoring 342.800 to Romania's 338.550 and Switzerland's 337.950.

German head coach Andreas Hirsch said his team used the event as a warm-up for the upcoming world championships in Nanning.

"We won comfortably, that was important," said Berlin. "But that was not our focus. Rather, the aim was to rehearse our routines that we will need for the world championships in China."

Veteran Fabian Hambüchen fell on pommel horse, vault and high bar (full-twisting layout Jaeger) but still finished third all-around behind Romania's Andrei Muntean and Switzerland's Eddy Yusof. 2012 Olympic silver medalist Marcel Nguyen did not do the all-around because of a sore back, Hirsch said.

Iordache Takes Four Golds at Romanian Nationals
(3 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

Romanian star Larisa Iordache won four of five gold medals at the 67th Romanian Gymnastics Championships, held Saturday and Sunday in Bucharest.

Romanian star Larisa Iordache won four of five gold medals at the 67th Romanian Gymnastics Championships, held Saturday and Sunday in Bucharest.

The competition included both senior and junior gymnasts competing together, as well as guest competitors from Israel, Norway and Sweden.

Iordache easily defended her all-around title, scoring 59.650 to take the title over Stefania Stanila (55.800) and junior Andreea Iridon (55.100).

2012 Olympian Diana Bulimar skipped the competition, while rising star Andreea Munteanu competed balance beam and floor exercise only.

Iordache had her low score (14.050) on uneven bars, where she broke form to save a Stalder full on the low bar. She continued with a Maloney-half; Jaeger; clean toe-on to piked Tkatchev to Pak; Maloney; and full-twisting double dismount. On balance beam, she nailed her ff, tucked full, but had to grab the beam after her RO, layout full.

Iordache's high score (15.475) came on floor exercise, where she spun a quadruple turn and tumbled a double-double; tucked full-in; triple twist and piked full-in dismount.

In apparatus finals, Iordache won every event except balance beam, where she fell on her RO, layout full. The elegant Munteanu won the title with a set that included a ff, stuck tucked full; punch front; switch half, back tuck; side somi; ff, ff, triple twist.

In the men's competition, Andrei Muntean captured the all-around title plus three individual events.

Muntean, who like Iordache represents the Dinamo club, scored 88.750 to take the gold medal over Cristian Bataga (87.500). Stian Skjerahaug of Norway scored 82.400 as a guest competitor, leaving the bronze to Andrei Ursache (80.750).

In apparatus finals, Munteanu added gold medals on still rings and vault while Bataga won floor exercise and pommel horse. Marius Berbecar won parallel bars and Vlad Cotun won high bar. Berbecar, who competed five events only during the all-around, had the highest score of the weekend with his 15.900 on parallel bars.

The Romanians will compete again next weekend in Switzerland at a tri-meet featuring the Swiss and Germans.
