Pavlova topped German veteran Lisa Katharina Hill and Slovakia's Barbora Mokošová.

In the junior competition, Russia's Angelina Simakova (born in 2002) won the junior all-around over the Czech Republic's Aneta Holasová (2001) and Russian Maria Butskikh (2001).

In the junior team event, Simakova and Butskikh won the trophy for their club, VVS CSKA in Dzerzhinsk. Holasová and Veronika Šebáková took second place for the Czech Republic. Another Russian pair, Varvara Zubova and Viktoria Gorbatova, finished third.

Uchimura Wins Sixth Consecutive NHK Cup
(4 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

Gymnastics king Kohei Uchimura captured his sixth consecutive trophy at the 53rd NHK Cup, which concluded Sunday in Tokyo.


Kohei Uchimura (KONAMI) with his sixth consecutive NHK Cup

The NHK Cup served as the first part of Japan's world championships trials. The top three all-around gymnasts from the NHK Cup secured berths to this fall's world championships in Nanning.

Gymnasts qualified to the NHK Cup at last month's national championships, where 50 percent of their two-day scores carried over to Sunday's competition.

The top three gymnasts from Japan's national championships repeated their places Sunday, with world and Olympic champion Uchimura topping Juntendo University's Shogo Nonomura and Ryohei Kato.

Uchimura fell on pommel horse Sunday but still scored 90.450 on Sunday, which combined with his 90.600 average from the national championships gave him a winning 181.050.

Kato (89.600) tied for the second-best score after Uchimura, but still finished third due to his preliminary average. Yusuke Tanaka, fourth all-around, also earned 89.600, earned the highest scores of the day on parallel bars (15.600) and high bar (16.000).

World floor exercise champion Kenzo Shirai, 15th all-around, made his case as a specialist for the world team with his 16.200 on floor. Junior Kazuma Kaya, who competed pommel horse only, had the highest score with 15.400. Kaya won the 2013 Japan Junior International all-around title.

Other high scorers were Koji Yamamuro on still rings (15.450) and Nonomura on vault (15.600).

During Saturday's women's competition, Natsumi Sasada, Asuka Teramoto and Wakana Inoue clinched spot's on Japan's women's world team.

Junior Sae Miyakawa, seventh all-around in the women's competition, earned Japan's spot for this summer's Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing. Kenya Yuasa won a separate junior competition Saturday to select Japan's male representative for Nanjing.

Japan's teams to the world championships and Asian Games will be finalized following the second Japanese trials, July 5-6 in Chiba.

Sasada Captures First NHK Cup
(4 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)



Japanese national champion Natsumi Sasada won the women's all-around at the 53rd NHK Cup, held Saturday in Tokyo. Pictured: All-around medalists Wakana Inoue, Asuka Teramoto and Sasada secured spots on Japan's world team.

Japanese national champion Natsumi Sasada won the women's all-around at the 53rd NHK Cup, held Saturday in Tokyo.

Gymnasts qualified to the NHK Trophy at the Japanese national championships last month. Half of their scores from the national championships carried over to Saturday's event.

Sasada, 18, outscored Asuka Teramoto, 83.725-82.625, to win her first NHK Trophy. In the third rotation, Sasada risked her signature round off, full-twisting layout mount to score 14.600 on balance beam. With a clean floor exercise (13.450), she clinched her first victory at the prestigious NHK Cup.

Wakana Inoue finished third (79.900). Sasada, Teramoto and Inoue earned berths for Japan's team at this fall's world championships in China. The three remaining members will be decided following another competition in July.

Junior Sae Miyakawa, seventh all-around, earned Japan's spot for this summer's Youth Olympic Games. The event also included a separate junior competition to select Japan's male representative for the Youth Olympic Games. Kenya Yuasa topped the competition to secure the berth to Nanjing. Yuasa tied for the high bar title at the Pacific Rim Championships in April.

The NHK Cup continues Sunday with the men's event, with world and Olympic champion Kohei Uchimura seeking his sixth consecutive trophy.

López, US Men Golden Again in Anadia
(3 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

Venezuela's Jessica López and the U.S. men struck more gold Sunday as the Anadia World Challenge Cup concluded in Portugal.

The U.S. men took two more titles to win four of the six finals in Anadia. Eddie Penev, who won floor exercise on Saturday, won vault (stuck Yurchenko half on to double-twisting handspring front layout; Yurchenko 2 1/2).

Newcomer Audrys Nin (Dominican Republic) won the silver, impressing with a booming Dragulescu (one small step), and a Tsukahara 2 1/2 (large step over the line). China's won the bronze (triple-twisting Tsukahara; short Randi).

U.S. Olympian Sam Mikulak, second to Penev on floor exercise, won the gold medal on high bar (Kolman; layout Tkatchev; Rybalko; half Tak to Tkatchev-half; stuck layout double double) and bronze on parallel bars.

France's Kévin Antoniotti showed impeccable lines to win the gold medal on parallel bars with 15.500, edging two-time world champion Mitja Petkovšek of Slovenia (15.475).

López, who won uneven bars on Saturday, took the balance beam title (ff ff, two-foot layout; switch half; sheep jump; front aerial, wolf jump; side somi; 2 1/2 twist) over Slovenia's Teja Belak. Belak, Saturday's vault champion, performed a side somi; full turn with leg held horizontal; front tuck; and stuck double tuck to place ahead of Portugal's Diana Abrantes.

Portugal's Ana Filipa Martins won a weak women's floor exercise final, in which all the finalists mounted with double pikes or double tucks. Austria's Jasmin Mader won the bronze medal over Uzbekistan's Yelena Rega.

The FIG World Cup series continues with the Ghent World Challenge Cup, Aug. 23-24 in Belgium.

With four medals, the U.S. men were the most successful as finals began Saturday at the Anadia World Challenge Cup in Portugal.

On floor exercise, Eddie Penev and Sam Mikulak finished 1-2 on floor exercise for the U.S., with 2012 Olympic finalist Tomas González (Chile) winning the bronze.

Alex Naddour (U.S.) was the most successful gymnast with the gold medal on pommel horse and silver on still rings. On pommel horse, Naddour had a small form break early in his routine but stayed on to win the title in a fall-filled final. Zoltán Kállai (Hungary) finished second ahead of Latvia's Dmitrijs Trefilovs.

World and Olympic champion Arthur Zanetti of Brazil comfortably won the still rings final with 15.700 (large step back on his full-twisting double layout dismount). Naddour took second, dismounting with a tucked 1 1/2-twisting double. Finland's Markku Vahtila, second in qualification, won the bronze.

In the women's finals, Slovenia's Teja Belak won the vault title (Yurchenko 1 1/2, handspring tucked front with a full). Austria's Elisa Hämmerle won the silver over Portugal's Ana Filipa Martins.

Two-time Venezuelan Olympian Jessica López was the class of the uneven bars finals, which saw all eight gymnasts from qualification advance. López's complex routine included a mount of Maloney, back uprise full pirouette to Tkatchev immediate Gienger between the bars; layout Jaeger from elgrip; double front from elgrip).

Martins fell on her Shaposhnikova but won the silver medal. Uzbekistan's Asal Saparbaeva (Jaeger; free hip full to Tkatchev; Pak salto; double pike) tied Hämmerle (fall on Jaeger) for the bronze medal.
