Yul Moldauer (USA)

The U.S. duo of Addison Fatta and Yul Moldauer finished first at the Swiss Cup, a mixed-pairs competition held Sunday in Zurich. Moldauer’s victory with Fatta followed his second-place all-around result at the Arthur Gander Memorial that took place in the Swiss city of Chiasso four days ago.

Fatta, who turned 18 on November 23, trains at Prestige Gymnastics in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Her coaches are her parents, Jennifer Fatta and Tony Fatta. Earlier this year Fatta won gold on vault and bronze on uneven bars at the Challenge Cup of Szombathely, and placed 10th all-around at the U.S. Championships.

At the Arthur Gander Memorial held November 23, Italy’s Alice D’Amato easily earned the women’s title, while Ukraine’s Illia Kovtun outscored Moldauer for the men’s title by 0.05 points.
