2012 Olympians Denis Ablyazin, David Belyavsky, Viktoria Komova and Nikolai Kuksenkov won gold medals in Saturday's apparatus finals at the 2014 Russian Cup in Penza.

Komova uprgaded her uneven bars routine (adding an inside-Stalder full to Tkatchev) to take the uneven bars gold medal over all-around champion Aliya Mustafina by one-tenth of a point. Daria Spiridonova won the bronze medal.

Komova, who is still recovering from a nagging ankle injury, competed uneven bars only in Penza. She said she hopes to be ready on balance beam to join Russia's team at the world championships in Nanning, China.

Alla Sotnitskaya won the women's vault title with a double-twisting Yurchenko and layout Podkopayeva. Veteran Tatiana Nabiyeva took second (double-twisting Yurchenko and Podkopayeva) while top qualifier Maria Paseka crashed her Amanar to place third.

Belyavsky, who was second in the all-around on Wednesday, won the men's floor exercise title (full-twisting double layout; 1 1/2 to double-twisting front; piked Arabian double front; Thomas; 2 1/2 layout front full; stuck triple twist). Top qualifier Denis Ablyazin withdrew from the final after falls on floor and vault during Thursday's team final.

Kuksenkov, a 2012 Olympian for Ukraine, won the gold medal on pommel horse with 15.600 (7.0 Difficulty), topping Belyavsky (15.000) and junior Ivan Stretovich (14.433)

Ablyazin, who recently married 2008 Olympian Ksenia Semyonova, took the title on still rings with 15.600. Pavel Pavlov (15.133) finished second over all-around champion Nikita Ignatyev (15.100).

Competition concludes Sunday with the second day of apparatus finals. The competition will be webcast live on the Russian Gymnastics Federation's official website.

US Men, Calvo Win Pan American Championships
(4 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

The U.S. men's team and Colombia's Jossimar Calvo were golden Friday as the 2014 Pan American Championships began in Mississauga, Ont., Canada.

The competition is a qualifier for the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto, with the top eight teams advancing to next year's event. The host Canadian team also is using the Pan American championships as a qualifier for Canada's team to October's world championships in China.

The United States topped the men's team competition, winning the gold medal by nearly six points ahead of Colombia, 352.550-346.800. Brazil, the reigning Pan American Games champion, finished third with 346.450.

The U.S. team – Jonathan Horton, Marvin Kimble, C.J. Maestas, Sean Melton, Eddie Penev and Brandon Wynn – earned the top team score on every event except vault. Penev suffered a knee injury on vault and was unable to finish the competition.

Brazil had the top team score on vault, with a high of 15.000 from Sergio Sasaki.

Calvo just edged Cuba's Manrique Bicet for the individual all-around title, 89.300-89.250. Melton won the bronze with 88.850.

2012 Olympic champion Arthur Zanetti (Brazil) had the top score of the day with 15.950 on still rings. Colombia's Jorge Hugo Giraldo had the second-best score of the competition with 15.650 on parallel bars.

Competition continues Saturday with the women's team and all-around competition.

Teams from Moscow and the Urals were golden as competition continued Thursday and Friday at the 2014 Russian Cup in Penza.

World and Olympic champion Aliya Mustafina competed three events to lead Moscow to first place in the women's competition by more than a 5-point margin of victory. Mustafina, who won the women's all-around title on Wednesday, had the highest scores of the day on uneven bars (15.033), balance beam (14.900) and floor exercise (14.300). Olympic bronze medalist Maria Paseka had the highest score of the day with her 15.300 on vault (Amanar with large step forward).

St. Petersburg took second, with high scores from veterans Tatiana Nabiyeva (14.800 on vault) and Yekaterina Kramarenko (14.567 on uneven bars).

Viktoria Komova (14.400 on uneven bars) and Maria Kharenkova (14.867 on balance beam) led the Central region to the bronze, a further 3 points behind St. Petersburg.

In the men's competition, European champion David Belyavsky led the Urals to first place over Siberia, 257.800-256.450. Belyavsky, second in the all-around Wednesday, competed all but still rings, scoring 15.500 on floor exercise, 15.100 on pommel horse, 15.350 on vault, 15.650 on parallel bars and 14.850 on high bar.

Russian Cup all-around champion Nikita Ignatyev competed all six events to help his Siberian squad to second place. He notched the highest score of the team final with 15.700 on parallel bars.

The Volga region finished third, with Belyavsky's scores holding the team up. (Russian competition allows gymnasts' scores to count for two teams to represent where they are from and where they now train). Penza's own Denis Ablyazin, who won four gold medals at the 2014 European Championships, had an off day with 14.400 on floor exercise and 14.300 on vault (overrotated Tsukahara double pike). He also scored 15.250 on still rings, .55 less than his score in qualification.

Competition continues Saturday with the first day of apparatus finals. The competition will be webcast live on the Russian Gymnastics Federation's official website.

Ignatyev Wins Russian Cup Men's Title
(5 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

Nikita Ignatyev captured the men's all-around title Wednesday evening as the 2014 Russian Cup continued in Penza. Pictured: Ignatyev with runner-up David Belyavsky and all-around bronze medalist Mikhail Kudashov.

Nikita Ignatyev captured the men's all-around title Wednesday evening as the 2014 Russian Cup continued in Penza.

Ignatyev easily outscored European all-around champion David Belyavsky by more than four points, 90.650-86.450. Mikhail Kudashov finished a close third with 86.200.

Ignatyev, who was second to Dmitry Stolyarov at the 2013 Russian Cup, hit six events. His lowest score was 14.500 on pommel horse, with the rest of his routines earning 15.050 or higher.

Belyavsky, the 2012 Russian Cup champion, fell on vault and then suffered a 12.950 on high bar.

2010 Youth Olympian Daniil Kazachkov finished fourth ahead of Ivan Stretovich, 17. Stretovich has dominated the Russian junior events the past few years and is among a handful of young hopefuls for the 2016 Olympic Games, Russian men's head coach Valery Alfosov said.

Hometown hero Denis Ablyazin blew away the field on his three specialties, scoring 15.950 on floor exercise, 15.800 on still rings and 15.400 on vault. Nikolai Kuksenkov balanced out Ablyazin on the other three events with 15.300 on pommel horse, 15.150 on parallel bars and 15.050 on high bar.

European still rings championships Alexander Balandin, the runner-up at the 2013 World Championships, will miss the remainder of the year after undergoing shoulder surgery, Alfosov said. 2012 Olympic team captain Emin Garibov, who underwent double shoulder surgery last year, was also absent.

The Russian Cup will help decide the team for the upcoming world championships in China, Alfosov said, but also the makeup of the 2015 national team.

"First of all I want to see all the candidates aspiring to get into the Russian team for the world championships in China and onto the roster for the 2015 national team," he told Russian media. "This season basically is already over, but ahead of us we have the very crucial 2015 and 2016. After the European championships [in May] we started some updating the team. We invited a pack of young gymnasts who had been competing as juniors into the senior squad."

Artur Dalaloyan, 12th, Viktor Britan, 13th, Kiril Potapov and Nikita Nagorny are other juniors with potential for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Alfosov said.

Competition continues Thursday evening with the men's team final. The women's team final takes place Friday evening. The competition will be webcast live on the Russian Gymnastics Federation's official website.
