Hitomi Hatakeda (Japan) and Aneta Holasová (Czech Republic) won the all-around titles at the 29th Gym Festival Trnava, held Saturday and Sunday in Slovakia.

The competition attracted gymnasts from nine countries to Trnava in Western Slovakia, and featured junior and senior competition for individuals. A separate group of juniors (born in 2003 to 2005) competed in a team event.

Hatakeda, a first-year senior, won the senior all-around competition (55.800) over Poland's Alma Kuc (53.633) and Germany's Amelie Föllinger (53.317).

Defending champion Barbora Mokošová of Slovakia, who qualified to compete at this summer's Olympic Games, finished fourth all-around (52.983).

In the junior competition, Holasová (54.300) and Vendula Měrková (52.200) finished 1-2 for the Czech Republic. Both gymnasts were born in 2001. Hungarian Nóra Fehér born in 2002, won the bronze (51.850). In 2015, Holasová finished second all-around to Mokošová in a combined junior and senior competition.

In Sunday's apparatus finals, senior champions were Yana Federova (Ukraine) on vault, Hatakeda on uneven bars, Mokošová on balance beam and Föllinger on floor exercise.

The Czech gymnasts swept the junior finals. Holasová won vault and floor exercise, Vendula Měrková won uneven bars and her twin sister Adéla Měrková won balance beam.

The Japanese pair of Yuna Endo and Urara Ashikawa won the team competition with 104.100. Hungarians Scenge Bácskay and Zója Székely took second (98.650 ) ahead of a second Hungarian pair of Regina Medved and Bianka Schermann (96.550).

British Men Win Quad Meet in Switzerland
(1 vote, average 5.00 out of 5)

Nile Wilson led Great Britain to victory over France, Germany and Switzerland in a quadrangular meet held Saturday in the Swiss city of Zuchwil.

The British men topped France, Germany and Switzerland in a quadrangular meet held Saturday in the Swiss city of Zuchwil.

The competition was held less than an hour outside Bern, site of the upcoming European championships for men, May 25-29.

2014 Junior European champion Nile Wilson led Great Britain to an easy victory with 267.500, more than 7 points ahead of Switzerland (259.250). Germany finished third (257.750) ahead of France finished fourth (247.850).

Great Britain had the top team total on four of the events: floor exercise, pommel horse, still rings and high bar.

The British sent three of their team members for Bern – Wilson, Louis Smith and Kristian Thomas – leaving home Max Whitlock and Dan Purvis. The team posted the highest score on five of the events: Thomas on floor exercise (15.200) and vault (15.550); Smith on pommel horse (15.250), Courtney Tulloch on still rings (15.650) and Wilson on high bar (15.500).

The Swiss sent their European squad of Christian Baumann, Pablo Brägger, Benjamin Gischard, Oliver Hegi and Eddy Yusof, plus alternate Pascal Bucher. The Swiss put up only four gymnasts on each event and outperformed the field on vault.

Germany sent four of their European team members: Andreas Toba, Philipp Herder, Waldemar Eichorn and Marcel Nguyen. Germany, led by Nguyen's 15.600, had the best team total on parallel bars.

France sent a B team. Only one member of the team in Zuchwil, Julien Gobaux, is on the roster for Bern.

Ukraine Takes Two More Titles in Varna
(3 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

Ukrainians Igor Radivilov and Oleg Vernyayev each won another title Sunday as the Varna World Challenge Cup concluded in Bulgaria.

Ukrainian Olympians Igor Radivilov and Oleg Vernyayev each won another title Sunday as the Varna World Challenge Cup concluded in Bulgaria.

The FIG event attracted more than 100 gymnasts from 24 nations to the seaside city, with many using the competition as a warmup to the upcoming European championships in Bern. The competition is the ninth World Cup event of 2016.

The Ukrainian men combined for five of the six titles in Varna. Radivilov added the vault title to go with his still rings from Saturday, while Vernyayev won parallel bars after winning floor exercise and pommel horse.

Radivilov, the bronze medalist on vault at the 2012 Olympics, won the vault title Sunday after standing up his Dragulescu and Tsukahara double pike vaults (one step on each). France's Zachari Hrimèche won the silver with clean landings on the same vaults. Israel's Andrey Medvedev took third with a Blanik (piked handspring double front) and Tsukahara double pike.

Vernyayev overarched a peach to one rail but was unparalleled in the p-bars final, winning with a 15.833 (6.9 Difficulty). Axel Augis brought another silver for France (15.500/6.8) over Russia's Dmitry Lankin (15.400/6.7).

Belarusian Andrei Likhovitsky won high bar with a clean but simple routine (layout Tkatchev; Yamawaki; German giants; stuck full-twisting double layout; 14.700/6.4). Lithuanian Robert Tvorogal (Možnik; Tak-full to Yamawaki; layout Tkatchev; Tkatchev-half; double layout; 6.0D) and Slovenian Alen Dimic (layout Tkatchev; Možnik; Tkatchev-half; Tkatchev; layout double-double; 6.5D) tied for second with 14.267.

France's Marine Boyer won balance beam with a very clean routine (RO, two-foot layout; switch leap, switch side; sissone, front aerial, sissone, wolf jump combo; side somi; RO, double pike; 14.500/6.2). Vietnamese Olympian Phan Thị Hà Thanh, the runner-up on vault on Saturday, won a second silver with a gorgeous routine (sissone, front aerial, wolf; ff, two-foot layout to sissone, switch leap, switch side; switch leap full with a large wobble; side aerial, sissone, side somi; RO, double pike; 14.367/6.3). The wonderfully elegant Ilaria Käslin (Switzerland) won the bronze (14.100/5.8). Top qualifier Marine Brevet (France) finished last after a hesitant routine with missed connections.

Vault champion Giulia Steingruber took a second gold with the floor exercise title (14.733/6.1), tumbling a clean layout full-in, double layout and tucked full-in (upgraded from double pike in qualification). Teammate Käslin won the silver (triple twist; double tuck; 2 1/2; 13.933/5.5) over Russia's Yevgenia Shelgunova (1 1/2 to messy triple twist; piked full-in; double tuck; double pike; 13.767/5.9).

The FIG World Challenge Cup series continues next weekend, May 20-22, in São Paulo.

Vernyayev Takes Two Titles in Varna
(3 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

Oleg Vernyayev (Ukraine) won two golds and a silver Saturday in the first day of finals at the 2016 Varna World Challenge Cup in Bulgaria.

Ukrainian star Oleg Vernyayev won two golds and a silver Saturday in the first day of finals at the 2016 Varna World Challenge Cup in Bulgaria.

The FIG event attracted more than 100 gymnasts from 24 nations to the seaside city, with many using the competition as a warmup to the upcoming European championships in Bern. The competition is the ninth World Cup event of 2016.

Vernyayev, who qualified to all six finals in Varna, picked up gold medals on floor exercise and pommel horse, and finished second to teammate Igor Radivilov on still rings.

On floor exercise, Vernyayev posted a 6.9D score en route to first place (layout Thomas; 3 1/2 punch layout front full; layout front, Randi; 2 1/2 to Rudi; double-twisting front to layout barani; stuck triple twist). Slovenia's Rok Klavora won the silver over top qualifier Dominick Cunningham of Great Britain, who opened with fantastic 2 1/2-twisting double back to punch front full.

Vernyayev hit a 7.0-Difficulty set on pommel horse for 15.533, topping specialists Robert Seligman of Croatia (6.4) and Cyril Tommasone of France (7.0), who tied for the silver with 15.300

Radivilov, the 2013 co-European champion on still rings, brought a third gold for Ukraine (15.467/6.9). Vernyayev claimed silver (15.367/6.6) over 2010 Youth Olympian Daniil Kazachkov of Russia (15.133/6.5).

In the women's competition, Switzerland's Giulia Steingruber won vault with a stuck layout Rudi and a double-twisting Yurchenko with one step. Vietnamese world medalist Phan Thị Hà Thanh won the silver (piked barani; double-twisting Yurchenko) over Poland's Katarzyna Jurkowska-Kowalska (beautiful layout barani; layout Tsukahara).

Russia's Daria Skrypnik won uneven bars (toe-full, Komova II to Pak to Stalder-Shaposhnikova-half; inside Stalder-blind to piked Jaeger; inside-Stalder-full to low full-twisting double back). Teammate Yevgenia Shelgunova took second (toe-full to Maloney-half; toe-blind to Jaeger; very sloppy Tkatchev to Pak; Maloney; double layout) over Steingruber (Maloney to Pak; Maloney-half; toe-full to Gienger; stuck double front).

Competition concludes Sunday with the second day of finals.

Ukrainian star Oleg Vernyayev qualified to all six events as competition began Friday at the 2016 Varna World Challenge Cup in Bulgaria.

Ukrainian star Oleg Vernyayev qualified to all six events as competition began Friday at the 2016 Varna World Challenge Cup in Bulgaria.

The FIG event attracted more than 100 gymnasts from 24 nations to the seaside city, with many using the competition as a warmup to the upcoming European championships in Bern. The competition is the ninth of 13th scheduled World Cup events in 2016.

Vernyayev, the reigning European all-around champion, was the most successful gymnast on Friday at the Palace of Culture and Sports in Varna. The 22-year-old Donetsk native qualified first on parallel bars, second on pommel horse and third on floor exercise. He fell on his second vault (triple-twisting Tsukahara), but grabbed the last spot to the vault final.

Teammate Igor Radivilov led qualification on still rings and vault (Dragulescu; Tsukahara double pike). Great Britain's Dominick Cunningham qualified first on floor exercise and third on vault (triple-twisting Yurchenko; Tsukahara 2 1/2). Slovenia's Alen Dimic tied France's Axel Augis for first on high bar.

Switzerland's Giulia Steingruber qualified to three of the finals, leading the qualification on vault (layout Rudi; double-twisting Yurchenko) and floor exercise (double layout full-in; double layout; double pike).

Russia's Daria Skrypnik had the top score on uneven bars. French veteran Marine Brevet led qualification on balance beam with a beautiful but cautious exercise.

Competition continues Saturday with the first day of finals.
