Chinese Continue Gold Rush in Guangzhou
(7 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

China's gymnasts added five more gold medals Tuesday as their gold rush continued at the Asian Games in Guangzhou.

The Chinese won all five titles and three silvers in the first day of apparatus finals, ceding only a share of the gold on men's floor exercise. Already in Guangzhou, China easily won the team titles and the gold and silver medals in both the men's and women's all-around finals.

On Tuesday, Huang Qiushuang won women's vault with a double-twisting Yurchenko and Podkopayeva. All-around bronze medalist Rie Tanaka (Japan) was second over teammate Momoko Ozawa.

After falling in the world final last month, Olympic champion He Kexin was queen of uneven bars once again, winning the title with a massive 16.425. After her Li Ya and layout Jaeger-Pak combinations, He connected her final 1 1/2 pirouette directly to a full-twisting double tuck dismount for a 7.4 Difficulty score.

Huang, who missed her Jaeger in the all-around final to place second, hit Tuesday for another silver medal ahead of world medalist Koko Tsurumi (Japan).

In the men's floor exercise, China's Zhang Chenglong shared the gold medal with Korea's Kim Soo Myun. India's Ashish Kumar won the bronze, the first Asian Games medal for an Indian gymnast.

All-around champion Teng Haibin, the 2003 world and 2004 Olympic champion, was once again king of the pommel horse. World and Olympic champion Chen Yibing was unbeatable on still rings, with 2009 world champion Yan Mingyong finishing .175 behind. Yan was second as well on pommel horse, showing a mastery of both events rare in today's world of specialists.

Taiwan picked up bronze medals from Chen Chih Yu on pommel horse and Huang Che Kuei still rings.

Artistic gymnastics competition concludes Tuesday with the final day of event finals. The Chinese are favored to win four of the five remaining events, with men's vault the only gold-medal long shot. Feng Zhe qualified third and Zhang qualified fifth to the vault final, but they will need mistakes from Korea's Yang Hak Seon for a chance at the title.

Sui, Teng Win Asian Games All-Around
(6 votes, average 4.33 out of 5)

The Chinese gymnasts took two more golds and both silver medals Monday at the Asian Games in Guangzhou, where Sui Lu and Teng Haibin won the all-around title. Left to right: Huang Qiushuang and Sui Lu of China and Rie Tanaka of Japan.
China's gymnasts took two more gold medals Monday at the Asian Games in Guangzhou, where Sui Lu and Teng Haibin captured the all-around titles.

The Chinese gymnasts, which won the team titles in Guangzhou with ease, took the gold and silver medals in both all-around events, leaving Japan with two bronzes.

Sui, second to teammate Huang Qiushuang in qualification, hit four events to take the title. Though relatively weak for a Chinese gymnast on vault (Yurchenko full) and uneven bars (Maloney; jam through to piked Jaeger), Sui performed as well as she could before moving onto her strong events. She took the top scores of the day on both balance beam (piked front, Korbut; barani; switch ring; front aerial, ff, back pike; full turn with leg up to full turn; side somi; double pike) and floor exercise (whip, triple twist; 2 1/2, punch front layout; 1 1/2 to layout front full; double pike).

Huang began well with a clean double-twisting Yurchenko on vault. She fell on uneven bars on her Jaeger, however, after smacking her feet on the low bar during her front giant into the release. She rebounded well balance beam with only a few small wobbles on her piked front and front aerial, ff, back pike combination.

Japan's Rie Tanaka won the bronze, with her best scores on vault (Yurchenko 1 1/2) and uneven bars (Shaposhnikova to Pak, Jaeger, stuck double layout). She took her lowest score on balance beam, where she had several near falls.

Russian Daria Yelizarova, competing in her first competition for Uzbekistan, finished .350 behind Tanaka. Coached in Guangzhou by Oksana Chusovitina, Yelizarova showed the excellent form that helped her win the 2006 Junior European Championships. She took her best scores on uneven bars (invert full to piked Jaeger; stuck Arabian double front) and floor exercise. On beam, she had a near fall on her front aerial, ff, layout, but threw her switch leap, front tuck combination. Vault (stuck handspring piked front) was her weakest event, but Yelizarova is a valuable addition to Uzbekistan, which qualified a full team to the 2011 Worlds.

In the men's competition, Teng Haibin proved himself to the coaching staff by hitting two meets back-to-back. Teng, the former world and Olympic champion on pommel horse, outscored teammate Lu Bo by more than a point to win his first major all-around title.

Teng has been notoriously inconsistent in his career, and his costly errors in the team final at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens have not been forgotten. This year he made his return to China's top team after a six-year absence. Though he helped China win the team title at the world championships, he was only 11th in the all-around final.

"It's not easy," Teng said. "It's a new start. That gold gave me much confidence to look to next year's world championship and 2012 Olympics. This may be my last time competing at the Asian Games so I am very excited to win."

Lu competed well, but lost points with poor landings on vault and parallel bars. Japanese veteran Hisashi Mizutori, second at the 2005 Worlds and 2006 Asian Games, won the bronze. The 30-year-old took the highest score of the day on high bar, but still finished .150 behind Lu.

After the all-around ceremony, Teng was forced to explain a hand gesture he and Lu made on the podium, where they appeared to aim a gun at Mizutori. The two Asian powers have a long history of war and animosity.

"I would like to explain that the gesture which looks like I am using a gun is not hostile," Teng said, explaining that the gesture is meant to symbolize the Li Ning logo.

Mizutori made the same gesture back, though he said later he was not sure what it meant.

"I thought maybe I should just go along with it, so I just did it," Mizutori said.

Competition continues in Guangzhou on Tuesday with the first day of apparatus finals.

Nabiyeva Nabs Four Titles in Marseille
(6 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

Russian Tatiana Nabiyeva won the all-around and two event titles at the 21st Elite Gym Massilia, held Friday and Saturday in Marseille, France.

Nabiyeva teamed with fellow world champions Ksenia Afanasyeva and Ksenia Semyonova to lead Russia to victory over France and Australia in the Masters division.

Nabiyeva fell on her Yurchenko mount on balance beam, but Afanasyeva earned the highest score of the meet on balance beam for a solid set (side arial to two feet; front aerial to ff two-foot layout; Onodi; side somi; double tuck.) Semyonova, struggling with a hamstring injury, dismounted with only a round off, layout.

After opening on floor exercise with a big Arabian double front and 2 1/2 barani, Nabiyeva fell on her double pike. Afanasyeva, with her right knee taped, modified her tumbling, ditching her double layout mount in favor of two whips to a triple twist. Before her final run, she looked over at coach Marina Nazarova, who signaled to her to dismount with a safe double twist. After two scores in the 12s, Russia put up Semyonova, who had not planned on competing but hit nonetheless (double pike mount; double twist dismount).

Nabiyeva hit vault (double-twisting Yurchenko; 15.10) and uneven bars (toe-on layout Tkatchev; Pak to Stalder-full; Maloney-half; Jaeger; toe-on full to full-twisting double; 15.00).

Last-up Afanasyeva, who had limped off the podium after a Yurchenko full on vault; crashed her uneven bars dismount. Nevertheless her score of 13.00 was enough to clinch victory for Russia.

French world team member Aurelie Malaussena placed second all-around over French junior Doriane Thobie, who impressed on balance beam with a standing Arabian (14.00).

In Saturday's event finals, Nabiyeva won senior vault and uneven bars, Malaussena beam and Afanasyeva floor.

Two-time French Olympian Ludivine Furnon, who spent several years with Cirque du Soleil, performed in a gala on Sunday.

Chinese Women Win 10th Asian Games Title
(7 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

The Chinese women easily won their 10th team title at the Asian Games Sunday in Guangzhou, outscoring second-place Japan by 11 points. Left to right: Yang Yilin, Huang Qiushuang, Sui Lu, He Kexin, Jiang Yuyuan and Deng Linlin.

The unstoppable Chinese women won their 10th consecutive team title Sunday at the Asian Games in Guangzhou.

Like their male counterparts on Saturday, the Chinese women defeated runner-up Japan by exactly 11 points. Since first joining the Asian Games in 1974, the Chinese men and women are both undefeated in the team competition.

With the added power of former Russian team member Daria Yelizarova, Uzbekistan won the bronze medal over Korea. (North Korea, third at the 2006 Asian Games, is banned from competition until 2012.)

The Chinese qualified first in every event, despite showing signs of fatigue in their second major competition in a month. Huang Qiushuang, fourth all-around at October's world championships, led the Chinese charge to qualify first to the all-around final.

After erring in three of four bar routines at worlds, Huang was spot on in Guangzhou, ending her marathon routine with a stuck double layout. She had two large wobbles on balance beam, but qualified second on floor exercise and earned 9.500 in execution on her double-twisting Yurchenko vault (one small hop).

Chinese national champion Sui Lu qualified second with the best scores of the night on balance beam (drilled barani) and floor exercise. Olympic champion He Kexin, who uncharactistically finished out of the medals at worlds, nailed her routine on uneven bars (16.100).

World all-around silver medalist Jiang Yuyuan, however, had a difficult day, hitting only one event. On uneven bars, she nearly landed her Pak salto on her waist and then put her hands down on her full-twisting double layout. After falls on beam and floor, she nearly stuck her double-twisting Yurchenko vault, but dissolved into tears afterward. Unless China's coaches elect to withdraw one of her teammates from a final, Jiang's Asian Games are over in Guangzhou.

Though Jiang's mistakes were unexpected, China's team gold was not. After the fourth rotation, the Chinese gymnasts pulled on T-shirts with "No. 1" printed on them.

"We did quite well in general despite some mistakes," Chinese head coach coach Lu Shanzhen said. "The result is not a surprise."

Competition continues Monday in Guangzhou with the men's and women's all-around finals.

Britain's Purvis Best at Champions Trophy
(2 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

Rising British star Daniel Purvis outlasted his competition to take the 3rd Champions Trophy, a men's international invitational held Sunday in Stuttgart, Germany.

Great Britain's Daniel Purvis captured the 3rd Champions Trophy, an international invitational for men held Sunday in Stuttgart.

Purvis topped Ukraine's Nikolai Kuksenkov, 88.300-87.525. Two-time defending champion Maxim Devyatovsky of Russia was third (87.450).

Starting on his best event, floor exercise, Purvis grabbed the lead and held on while his top rivals made errors. He cemented his lead with the top score of the night, a 15.950 for an excellent Yurchenko 2 1/2 on vault.

German star Philipp Boy, the crowd favorite and all-around silver medalist at last month's worlds in Rotterdam, began well on floor exercise, but struggled on pommel horse (13.575) and again on vault, nearly sitting down his handspring double front. He fought back well with the high score on parallel bars, however, and going into his best event, high bar, he trailed Purvis by only .2. But falls on both his Kolman and layout Tkatchev releases dropped Boy to fifth.

World all-around bronze medalist Jonathan Horton (U.S.) committed several costly errors to end up sixth. He sat down his double front on floor exercise and scored only 12.150 on pommel horse. He took the third-best score of the night on parallel bars (14.925) but fell on his Kolman on high bar.

Kuksenkov, a close fourth at worlds, performed consistently except for a break on parallel bars. Devyatovsky, whose pommel horse meltdown dropped him from second to 19th in Rotterdam, again made costly errors on the event (12.300).
