Chinese Women Win University Games Title
(11 votes, average 4.91 out of 5)

Olympic gold medalist Jiang Yuyuan led China to the team title Thursday as the University Games began in Belgrade, Serbia.

With the highest scores in the all-around and on balance beam, 2008 Olympic gold medalist Jiang Yuyuan led China to the team title Thursday as the 25th University Games began in Belgrade, Serbia.

A team of Chinese all-stars crushed Russia by a seven-point margin of victory, 169.150-162.150. The Chinese squad in Belgrade included Jiang and Cheng Fei, members of the gold medal-winning Olympic team from Beijing, and half of the 2006 world champion team in Cheng, He Ning and Zhou Zhuoru.

Jiang and He qualified first and second to Saturday's all-around final, with Japan's Rie Tanaka earning the third-highest total of the day.

Russia, led by Olympian Svetlana Klyukina, held off North Korea by .6 to secure the silver medal. Two-time Olympian Yelena Zamolodchikova, 26, competed on vault and floor exercise, the events she won at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney.

2008 Olympic vault champion Hong Un Jong led North Korea to the bronze, and also qualified first to the vault final ahead of three-time world champion Cheng.

British gymnastics superstar Beth Tweddle was the top qualifier to the uneven bars and floor exercise finals. The two-time Olympian won both events at the 2009 European Championships, held in April in Milan.

Competition continues Friday with the men's team final and individual qualification. Check back with International Gymnast Magazine Online for more scores and reports from Belgrade.

French Sail to More Gold at Mediterranean Games
(4 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

French gymnasts won three more golds Thursday at the Mediterranean Games in Pescara, with Alberto Busnari taking Italy's lone gold on the first day of finals.

Rising French star Youna Dufournet won vault and uneven bars Thursday, bringing her medal haul to four golds so far in Pescara. The 15-year-old Dufournet led France to victory over Italy in the team competition Monday, and won the all-around title Wednesday.

Dufournet and teammate Pauline Morel finished 1-2 on uneven bars over Italy's Paola Galante.

Danny Rodrigues earned a third gold for France on Thursday on still rings, upsetting two-time Italian world medalist Matteo Morandi on what has been Italy's traditionally best event.

Greek standout Eleftherios Kosmidis won floor exercise over Olympic pommel horse silver medalist Filip Ude (Croatia) and Fabian Gonzalez (Spain).

The 29-year-old Busnari won the gold on pommel horse. Italy's only other artistic gymnastics gold so far in Pescara is the men's team title.

Competition concludes Friday with the remainder of the apparatus finals. Check back with International Gymnast Magazine Online for more results from Pescara.

Downie Set to Defend British Title in Guildford
(5 votes, average 4.20 out of 5)

Defending champion Becky Downie is expected to contend for the senior all-around title at the British Women's Gymnastics Championships this weekend in Guildford.

Defending champion Becky Downie (Notts) is among four Olympians expected to contend for the senior all-around title at the British Women's Gymnastics Championships this weekend in Guildford.

Downie was the top British all-around gymnast at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, where she finished 12th. Three other members of Great Britain's ninth-place squad from Beijing — Marissa King (Huntingdon), Hannah Whelan (City of Liverpool) and Rebecca Wing (Heathrow) — are scheduled to compete in Guildford on Saturday and Sunday.

At the 2008 British Championships, Downie won the senior title by 2.85 points over Wing. Whelan finished third, and King finished sixth.

Seven-time British all-around champion Beth Tweddle (City of Liverpool) will not compete in Guildford, since she is participating in the World University Games which begins Thursday in Belgrade. Joining Tweddle in Belgrade are Olivia Bryl, Bethan Mercer, Nina Dearman and Jenna Walters.

In the junior division, defending champion Nicole Hibbert (Heathrow) is expected to battle clubmate Danusia Francis for the title. Francis placed second in 2008.

Dufournet, Caranobe Win Mediterranean Games
(6 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

France's Youna Dufournet and Benoit Caranobe won the all-around titles Wednesday at the Mediterranean Games in Pescara, Italy.

France's Youna Dufournet and Benoit Caranobe won the all-around titles Wednesday at the Mediterranean Games in Pescara, Italy.

The French took both golds and both bronzes, with the host nation settling for two silvers.

The 15-year-old Dufournet, who led the French to a narrow victory over Italy in Monday's team competition, edged Italy's Elisabetta Preziosa for the all-around gold, 56.95-56.45. France's Pauline Morel finished a point behind her teammate (55.95) to win the bronze over Italy's Andrea La Spada.

Egyptian Olympian Sherine El Zeiny finished fifth, her best finish to date against European competitors. El Zeiny, who lives and trains in the Netherlands, outscored Greece's Vasiliki Millousi, 53.50-53.45.

Millousi, who qualified third to the all-around final, scored the highest of the day on baalnce beam (14.85), but a low score on uneven bars (12.00) kept her out of the medals.

Caranobe, the 2008 Olympic all-around bronze medalist, defeated Italy's Enrico Pozzo, 88.50-88.10. As in the Olympic all-around final, Caranobe's considerable strength on vault (16.300) gave him the edge over his competitors. Caranobe turned 29 on June 12.

Pozzo, 28, led Italy to the team gold Monday over France and Spain.

French Olympian Hamilton Sabot, 22, won the bronze over Italian veteran Matteo Morandi, 27.

Defending champion Rafael Martinez (Spain) finished seventh, matching his rank in qualification.

Competition concludes Thursday with the apparatus finals. Check back with International Gymnast Magazine Online for more news, scores and reports about the Mediterranean Games.

Host Italians Defeat French in Pescara
(4 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

The Italian men's team narrowly defeated France by two-tenths of a point Tuesday at the Mediterranean Games in Pescara. Flanked by coaches, gymnasts Andrea Cingolani, Enrico Pozzo, Matteo Morandi, Alberto Busnari and Paolo Ottavi show off their gold medals.

The Italian men's team narrowly defeated France by two-tenths of a point Tuesday at the Mediterranean Games in Pescara.

Led by Enrico Pozzo and Matteo Morandi, Italy edged France 267.500-267.300. Spain, the defending champion from the 2005 Mediterranean Games in Almeria, placed third with 264.00.

It was a thrilling victory for the host nation, which saw its women's team lose to France by .1 on Monday. France took the top team total on still rings, Italy's traditional best event, but was forced to count low scores on pommel horse and vault.

Pozzo (88.650) and Morandi (87.950) were the top two qualifiers to the all-around final. Defending all-around champion Rafael Martinez (Spain) was the seventh-highest scorer Tuesday.

Competition continues Wednesday with the all-around finals for men and women. Check back with International Gymnast Magazine Online for more news, scores and reports about the Mediterranean Games.

Why should I upgrade to Internet Explorer 7? Microsoft has redesigned Internet Explorer from the ground up, with better security, new capabilities, and a whole new interface. Many changes resulted from the feedback of millions of users who tested prerelease versions of the new browser. The most compelling reason to upgrade is the improved security. The Internet of today is not the Internet of five years ago. There are dangers that simply didn't exist back in 2001, when Internet Explorer 6 was released to the world. Internet Explorer 7 makes surfing the web fundamentally safer by offering greater protection against viruses, spyware, and other online risks.
