Qualification Begins at Osijek World Challenger Cup
(4 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)



Qualification began Thursday at the Osijek World Challenger Cup in Croatia, where gymnasts from five different nations topped the standings. Pictured: 2012 Ukrainian Olympian Oleg Stepko made his debut for Azerbaijan on Thursday in Osijek.

Qualification began Thursday at the Osijek World Challenger Cup in Croatia, where gymnasts from five different nations topped the standings.

The competition, part of the International Gymnastics Federation's World Cup series, attracted more than 125 gymnasts from 31 nations around the world. With two-thirds of the gymnasts competing in the men's competition, the lengthy qualification will take place both Thursday and Friday for this weekend's finals.

European champion Giulia Steingruber (Switzerland) topped a strong women's vault lineup with her layout Rudi and a Tsukahara full. Vietnamese star Phan Thi Ha Thanh finished second with a double-twisting Yurchenko but fell on her own Rudi. 2008 Olympic champion Hong Un Jong (North Korea) was third, playing it safe with easier vaults.

Teja Belak, who won vault at last weekend's World Challenger Cup in Ljubljana, debuted a new double-twisting Yurchenko as her second vault to qualify fourth.

Canada's Isabela Onyshko led the qualification on uneven bars over Ana Filipa Martins (Portugal) and Noémi Makra (Hungary).

In the men's qualification, Germany's Mattias Fahrig out-tumbled the field on floor exercise. Brazilian newcomer Ângelo Assumpção qualified second over Israeli star Alexander Shatilov.

Croatia's own Filip Ude, the 2008 Olympic silver medalist on pommel horse, led his best event. His teammate, Robert Seligman, qualified second over Slovenia's Sašo Bertoncelj and Italian veteran Alberto Busnari, with the top four gymnast all scoring above 15 points.

Romanian Andrei Muntean qualified first on parallel bars, outscoring current European champion Oleg Stepko. Stepko, a 2012 Ukrainian Olympian, made his debut for Azerbaijan in Osijek and also qualified to the floor final. North Korea's Kim Jin Hyok qualified third ahead of Slovenian veteran Mitja Petkovšek.

Qualification continues Friday with the remaining events.

Korea's Yang Hak Seon and Colombia's Jossimar Calvo impressed at the Korea Cup, an international tournament held Saturday and Sunday in Incheon.


Jossimar Calvo (Colombia)

For many, the competition served as a warm-up for the upcoming European championships in Sofia. The host nation also used it as venue warm-up for this year's Asian Games in Incheon. The gymnastics competition takes place Sept. 20-24 at the Namdong Gymnasium.

This weekend's competition at Namdong featured a finals-only format with no qualification. Korean vault superstar Yang Hak Seon headlined the field, which also included 10 other world and Olympic medalists.

Yang did not disappoint the home crowd, debuting his astonishing 3 1/2-twisting Tsukahara en route to the vault gold medal (click here to watch). Yang, the 2012 Olympic champion and 2011 and 2013 world champion, won by nearly a point over European champion Igor Radivilov, 15.925-15.037. American Jake Dalton won the bronze medal with 14.625.

Colombia's Jossimar Calvo was the only double champion, winning gold medals on both parallel bars and high bar.

Greece's Eleftherios Kosmidis, the 2010 world champion on floor exercise, won floor over Yang and his teammate Park Eo Jin.

The pommel horse competition featured the first rematch between 2012 Olympic gold medalist Krisztian Berki and runner-up Louis Smith (Great Britain). Smith, who tied Berki in London but was bumped to silver by a tie-break, this time was golden. Smith (6.9 Difficulty) scored 15.850 to top Berki (15.775 with 6.8 D) and Korea's Shin Dong Hyen (15.075).

On still rings, world bronze medalist Brandon Wynn (USA) just edged Greece's Eleftherios Petrounias, 15.650-15.625. European co-champion Igor Radivilov (15.100) won the bronze.

2011 world bronze medalist Phan Thi Ha Thanh (Vietnam) won women's vault over Korean gymnasts Kim Chae Yeon and Jung Hee Yeon.

Czech gymnasts Kristýna Pálešová and Jana Šikulová went 1-2 on uneven bars, with 2008 Australian Olympian Olivia Vivian finishing third.

Two-time Olympian Vasiliki Millousi gave Greece a second gold medal with the balance beam title. She topped Ukraine's Krystyna Sankova and Poland's Katarzyna Jurkowska-Kowalska.

Paula Plichta and Jurkowska-Kowalska finished 1-2 on floor exercise, with Jung winning another bronze for Korea. Two-time Australian Olympian Lauren Mitchell fell to place fourth.
