Russia Defends Junior European Title
(6 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)



Russia won its eighth consecutive junior team title as the 2014 Women's European Gymnastics Championships began Wednesday in Sofia.

Russia won its eighth consecutive junior team title as the 2014 Women's European Gymnastics Championships began Wednesday in Sofia.

Angelina Melnikova led Russia to first place over Great Britain, 168.262-165.005. Great Britain, which won its first junior European women's team medal, barely edged Romania out of second (164.972).

Russia began on uneven bars with its highest event total (43.032), led by Melnikova (14.633) and Daria Skrypnik (14.233). Melnikova also had the top score of the day on balance beam (14.400), but teammates Seda Tutkhalyan and Maria Bondareva missed. After the team struggled on floor exercise (13.466 from Melnikova and 13.40 from Bondareva), Russia rallied on vault with double-twisting Yurchenkos from Tutkhalyan (14.700) and Melnikova (14.200 with a .3 deduction for stepping over the line).

Great Britain had the best team total of the day with 43.532 on vault, led by Ellie Downie's 14.800, and also outscored the field on floor with 41.166. The team finished nearly three points behind Russia on uneven bars, but ended under pressure on balance beam with the third-best team total. The elegant Catherine Lyons clinched the silver for Great Britain with her 13.700.

Laura Jurca led Romania to the bronze. The team had the top score on balance beam, second-best team total on floor exercise, third-best result on vault and fourth-best on uneven bars. Jurca qualified third to the all-around final behind Melnikova and Tutkhalyan. Andreea Iridon and Jurca qualified 1-2 to the floor exercise final.

Great Britain celebrated a historic finish, qualifying two gymnasts to every final except uneven bars, where Downie grabbed the final qualification spot. The team had two gymnasts bumped from finals (Lyons on vault and Downie on floor exercise) by the two-per-country rule.

"We were aware there was the possibility of a medal, but that it would come down to stability," team coach Nick Ruddock told IG Wednesday. "The girls performed tremendously well under pressure, and we're all extremely proud of their focused approach to the competition. We're thrilled that the girls are in several finals and there are still some areas to improve on, so we'll see what the next few days brings."

Competition continues in Sofia on Thursday with the senior team qualification.

Yao, Deng Win Chinese Championships
(7 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

Yao Jinnan and Deng Fudi won the all-around titles at the 2014 Chinese Gymnastics Championships, which concluded Tuesday in Nanning.

The competition served as a warm-up event for this fall's world championships in Nanning. The gymnasts showed off new routines and skills from an intense winter training, and several new names surfaced among the medalists.


Yao Jinnan in Nanning

Yao impressed with 59.400 to take the all-around title over Shang Chunsong (58.650). Junior Wang Yan, who has been tabbed toe represent China this summer at the Youth Olympics in Nanjin, won the bronze.

Yao, who recently changed her first name to Ziyi, ditched her Mo salto on uneven bars but competed a Komova II (inside Stalder to Shaposhnikova) to Pak salto, Stalder-Shaposhnikova half transition; inverted pirouettes to 1 1/2 to Tkatchev; full-twisting double layout.

Coach Wang Qunce said Yao removed her Mo salto – debuted 20 years ago by the great Mo Huilan – after the FIG imposed a .3 deduction for not swinging immediately out of skills.

"So this skill is useless," Wang said. "We have to change our technique and skills again. Yao used a new uneven bar routine. Her Difficulty level is 7.1 even without the Mo salto, higher than everyone else in the world."

In finals, Wang won vault, Yao won uneven bars and Shang won balance beam and floor exercise. On floor, Shang tumbled a 1 1/2 to triple twist-punch front mount; 3 1/2 twist; 2 1/2 punch front pike; double dismount.

In the men's competition, Deng competed consistently to take the all-around title with scores of 15.450 on floor, 14.800 on pommel horse, 15.100 on still rings, 14.500 vault, 15.600 on parallel bars, and 15.05 on horizontal bar.

Deng said he hopes to rise to the level of world and Olympic champion Kohei Uchimura, who won an unprecedented seventh consecutive Japanese national title on Sunday.

"I feel calm and really relaxed," Deng said. "Actually, my Difficulty points are higher than Uchimura, around 40.4. It's good enough that I could finish all the routines I have prepared, but I have to go after the quality. Once I have good enough quality to finish the routine, then I have the confidence to compete with him."

Sasada, Uchimura Repeat as Japanese Champions
(4 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)



Natsumi Sasada and Kohei Uchimura defended their all-around titles Sunday as the 68th Japanese Gymnastics Championships concluded Sunday in Tokyo. Pictured: The men's and women's all-around medalists

Natsumi Sasada and Kohei Uchimura defended their all-around titles Sunday as the 68th Japanese Gymnastics Championships concluded Sunday at Tokyo's Yogogi Gymnasium.

The women's competition consisted of qualification Saturday and finals on Sunday, while the men's competition was decided using two days of scores.

Uchimura, who led after Friday's preliminaries, became the first Japanese male to win seven consecutive national titles. Only two other gymnasts – legends Masao Takemoto (1947-1951, 1954-1955) and Takashi Ono (1952-1953, 1956-60) – have won seven Japanese titles, but not consecutively.

The four-time world all-around champion and winner of the 2012 Olympics, Uchimura won comfortably despite struggling with a shoulder injury that hindered him on several events.

On vault, Uchimura showed a rare fall Sunday, crashing his Randi to his hands and feet. After the fall, he watered down his routines on parallel bars and high bar but nevertheless won by more than a full point over Shogo Nonomura. 2013 world all-around silver medalist Ryohei Kato was third.

In the women's competition, Sasada topped Asuka Teramoto by half a point, 55.950-55.450. Yuna Hiraiwa, 15, placed third with 54.950. Sasada clinched victory with 14.700 for her balance beam routine, which began with a stuck RO, layout full mount.

The Japanese championships serve as a qualifier to the NHK Cup, which will decide Japan's team to this fall's world championships and Asian Games.

Uchimura Leads Japanese Championships
(4 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)



World and Olympic champion Kohei Uchimura grabbed the early lead as the 68th Japanese Gymnastics Championships began Friday in Tokyo.

World and Olympic champion Kohei Uchimura grabbed the early lead as the 68th Japanese Gymnastics Championships began Friday in Tokyo.

Uchimura, who won the Tokyo World Cup in April with a total of 92.898, scored 90.900 on the first of two days of all-around competition. Shogo Nonomura was second with 90.350, while 2010 Youth Olympic champion Yuya Kamoto was third with 88.600.

2013 world runner-up Ryohei Kato was fourth after a break on high bar.

Uchimura said he was suffering from a shoulder injury, but was intent on being the first man to win seven consecutive Japanese national titles. He had the highest score of the day, 15.900, on floor exercise, but took several steps on his Randi vault for his lowest score (14.300).

World floor exercise champion Kenzo Shirai scored 15.600 to place second on behind Uchimura.

Competition continues Saturday at Tokyo's Yoyogi Gymnasium.

British Men Face Off for Double Defense in Sofia

The British men are "looking forward to the challenge" of defending both senior and junior titles at the upcoming European championships, men's head coach Eddie Van Hoof told IG this week.

Great Britain will be the defending senior champion at the 2014 Men's European Championships, May 19-25 in Sofia, Bulgaria. The junior team is the three-time defending champion, and British gymnasts finished 1-2 in the all-around at the past three Junior European championships (2012, 2010 and 2008).

"The team event – senior and junior – is our main focus, so stability and clean execution will be the focus for the next two weeks," Van Hoof said. "Everyone is in fine spirits and looking forward to the challenge of defending two team titles."

The team is set to be finalized this week, Van Hoof said, after a victory over France, Germany and Switzerland this past Saturday in Sotteville. The team included Max Whitlock, Sam Oldham and Dan Purvis, three of the five members of its historic bronze medal-winning squad from the 2012 Olympic Games in London, plus Dan Keatings, Frank Baines and Ashley Watson.

"I was generally very pleased with the British performance in France," Van Hoof said. "It gave us an opportunity to experiment with possible working orders for the team and to use other potential team members. There were one or two errors, but that is no bad thing as it helps to focus the attention for the next two weeks."

Keatings and Whitlock were both golden at the 2013 Europeans in Moscow, where the format featured all-around and apparatus finals for seniors only. Whitlock tied for first on floor exercise, was second all-around and third on pommel horse, while Keatings won pommel horse over Olympic champion Krisztian Berki. Oldham won the silver medal on high bar.

In Sotteville, Great Britain defeated France by nearly seven points, 270.350-263.550, with Germany third and Switzerland fourth. The team had the top total on every event except for still rings, finishing behind France by four tenths on that apparatus. Strength on still rings will be an area of improvement as Great Britain marches toward the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Van Hoof said.

"We know that rings is a weaker apparatus for Great Britain," he said. "All the athletes perform as all-around athletes and to gain the higher value strength elements requires time and detail to physical preparation. Our team is still relatively young and hasn’t reached full maturity to cope with these demands at the same time as all-around. Steady progress is being made and should bear fruit in time for Rio."
