Hambüchen, Seitz Extend National Streak
(3 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

Fabian Hambüchen won a record ninth national all-around title Saturday at the 2015 German Gymnastics Championships in Giessen, where Olympian Elisabeth Seitz won her fifth title.

Fabian Hambüchen won a record ninth national all-around title Saturday at the 2015 German Gymnastics Championships in Giessen, where Olympian Elisabeth Seitz won her fifth title.

Hambüchen, 27, handily won his ninth overall title with 88.100. The three-time Olympian had his high scores on floor exercise (15.450) amd parallel bars (15.050). He dropped off high bar on his layout Tkatchev, but still scored 14.550.

"I feel fit as a fiddle," Hambüchen said. "I'm right on schedule. Everything is going great toward the world championships."

Andreas Toba won the silver medal (84.950) over Christopher Jursch (83.250).

Two-time Olympic silver medalist Marcel Nguyen made a successful comeback from his knee injury. Nguyen competed four events in the all-around, capped by a high of 15.700 on parallel bars.

Seitz was sidelined earlier this year with a stress fracture in her foot, and had screws inserted to stabilize ther foot. She nevertheless returned to win her fifth consecutive all-around title in a close contest, scoring 55.800 to edge Pauline Schäfer by one tenth. Sophie Scheder won the bronze with 55.500.

"There year was terrible until the operation after the stress fracture in my foot, and then moving from Mannheim to Stuttgart," said Seitz, 21. "But it was a good thing I was able to show that I'm still here... and with two screws in my foot."

In Sunday's apparatus finals, Hambüchen continued his record-breaking ways with titles on floor exercise and high bar, his 37th and 38th German national titles, respectively.

Seitz added titles on uneven bars, where she mounted with a Maloney, back-uprise to immediate Ricna (Stalder-Tkatchev). Schäfer won vault and balance beam (beautiful side somi with 1/4 turn). Leah Griesser, fourth all-around, won floor exercise.

The German team will have one more test prior to the world championships, hosting Korea and Switzerland for a tri-meet on Oct. 10 in Dessau.

British Bag Two Gold Medals in Osijek
(2 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

Great Britain claimed two gold medals Saturday as the World Challenge Cup in Osijek continued in Croatia.

Two-time Olympic medalist Louis Smith nailed his pommel horse routine for the gold medal. Smith, whose marathon routine merited a 6.9 in Difficulty, scored 15.550 to take the title over Croatia's Robert Seligman (14.850) and Ukrainian Andrii Sienichkin (14.700).

World championships finalist Ruby Harrold (Great Britain) won uneven bars with her noted routine (Maloney to Bhardwaj; Maloney-half immediate Zuchold transition; Jaeger; double front with one step).

Croatia's Robert Seligman and Žiga Šilc

Finland's Annika Urvikko (Shaposhnikova to bail; elgrip to piked Jaeger; double front from elgrip) won the silver medal over Brazilian Thauany Araújo (Maloney to bail; Gienger; Tkatchev; double front).

Puerto Rico's Paula Mejias won the gold medal on women's vault with a double-twisting Tsukahara (very clean form) and tucked Rudi. Hungarian Boglarka Devai (double-twisting Yurchenko and Tsukahara full) placed second over Chile's Franchesca Santi (double

Top qualifier Marcia Vidiaux (Cuba) landed in sixth place after badly underrotating both her double-twisting Tsukahara and layout Rudi (fall). Both vaults were downgraded in difficulty value.

Israel's Artyom Dolgopat won a close floor exercise final, where all three medalists finished within a tenth of each other. The Ukrainian-born Dolgopat tumbled a Randi; double-double; 1 1/2 to double-twisting front; Thomas, 2 1/2, front full; triple twist for 14.800.

Croatia's Žiga Šilc took second (whip-half, double front; double-twisting front to front full; tucked full-in; layout Thomas; 1 /2 to Rudi; 2 1/2 twist) over Mexico's Daniel Corral. Corral, most known for his pommel horse work, worked a long flair sequence into his routine with very clean tumbling (piked double front; piked Arabian double front; 2 1/2 barani; Arabian double front).

World medalist Alexander Shatilov (Israel) had the most difficulty of the field with 6.8, but finished fourth after landing out of bounds on his second pass of 3 1/2 to punch front.

Ukrainian star Oleg Vernyayev won parallel bars with the highest score of the competition so far, 16.050. Vernyayev, just eighth in qualification, was back in world champion form. He performed his 7.2-D routine very cleanly except for an overarched handstand prior to his stuck dismount of double front-half.

Turkey's Ferhat Arıcan claimed the silver, edging Japan's Hidetaka Miyachi, 15.250-15.225.

Competition concludes Sunday in Osijek with the remaining events.

World and Olympic medalist Denis Ablyazin took two individual titles Saturday as the 2015 Russian Cup continued in Penza.

Ablyazin, a native of Penza, thrilled the home crowd with his gold medals on floor exercise and still rings. On floor exercise, the reigning world champion impressed with 15.767, well ahead of runner up David Belyavsky (15.100) and bronze medalist Nikita Ignatyev (15.100). In qualification, Ablyazin tumbled a seven-pass marathon routine: triple-twisting front; layout double-double; double-twisting front to piked double pike; layout Thomas; piked Arabian double front; 2 1/2 layout front full; triple twist dismount.

On pommel horse, all-around runner-up Nikolai Kuksenkov edged Ivan Stretovich, 14.733 to 14.700. Ignatyev, the all-around champion, proved his consistency with the bronze.

Ablyazin also took the still rings title, scoring 15.267 to Ignatyev's 15.133 and Daniil Kazachkov's 15.100.

Maria Paseka, the 2012 Olympic bronze medalist on vault, cemented her status for the world championship squad by again hitting her Amanar (15.487) and Cheng Fei (15.800) for an untouchable 15.634 average. All-around silver medalist Seda Tutkhalyan (14.400 average) was second over two-time Olympian Ksenia Afanasyeva (14.334 average).

On uneven bars, Alla Sosnitskaya (14.733) won the title over Tutkhalyan (14.500) and Daria Spiridonova (14.433). Tutkhalyan added a Bhardwaj (Pak-full) to her set. Spiridonova, the all-around champion and top qualifier, slipped off the low bar after an inside-Stalder full went awry.

Viktoria Komova, who fell on her Maloney-half and double-twisting double tuck dismount on day one, competed exhibition Saturday and scored 15.300. After going with her easier dismount in the all-around, she landed the double-double for the highest score.

The competition concludes Sunday with the remaining apparatus finals.

(3 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

Brazilians Jade Barbosa and Arthur Zanetti both led one event as qualification concluded Friday at the World Challenge Cup in Osijek, Croatia.

Brazilians Jade Barbosa and Arthur Zanetti both led one event as qualification concluded Friday at the World Challenge Cup in Osijek, Croatia.

The Brazilians, the hosts for next summer's Olympic Games, will be a multiple medal in Osijek, earning nine spots to this weekend's finals, while the British gymnasts, hosts for next month's world championships in Glasgow, earned seven berths to the finals. The World Cup event attracted nearly 150 gymnasts from 42 nations eager to test themselves in competition once again before Glasgow.

Zanetti, the 2012 Olympic champion on still rings, scored 15.800 on his best event, the highest score of the competition so far in Osijek. Zanetti was comfortably ahead of second-place İbrahim Çolak from Turkey (15.250) and third qualifier Ali Ramadan Zahran of Egypt (15.000).

Rising Cuban talent Manrique Larduet outvaulted the field and qualified fifth to the final on still rings. Japan's Keisuke Ogura qualified second ahead of Great Britain's Dominick Cunningham.

Hidetaka Miyachi, another newcomer from Japan, led the qualification on high bar with 15.000, topping Brazilians Caio Souza and Arthur Mariano, who both scored 14.500. On Thursday, Miyachi qualified seventh to the finals on pommel horse and parallel bars.

Barbosa earned the top mark on balance beam, earning 14.350. British Olympian Rebecca Tunney qualified second (13.800) over Panama's (Isabella Amado) 13.600.

Two-time Hungarian Olympian Dorina Böczögő (14.000) qualified first on floor exercise over compatriot Tünde Csillag and Puerto Rico's Paula Mejias, who both earned 13.450.

Competition continues Saturday in Osijek with the first day of finals.
