Komova Leads Russia to Victory at EYOF
(14 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)


Junior star Viktoria Komova led the Russian women to the team title Wednesday at the European Youth Olympic Festival in Tampere, Finland.


The Russian women reclaimed their team title Wednesday at the 10th European Youth Olympic Festival in Tampere, Finland.

Russia, sixth in 2007, took the top spot again while defending champion Ukraine fell to eighth. Romania, the top scorer on beam, finished second ahead of the Netherlands.

Top event totals on three of the four events helped Russia survive a meltdown on balance beam (sixth place). Russia showed its strength on vault (double-twisting Yurchenkos from Komova and Violetta Malikova) for a two-score total that was more than a point above the next best team.

Komova erred on beam (13.900), but was the top scorer on uneven bars with the day's only mark above 15.000 (15.050), and floor exercise (14.700). Born Jan. 30, 1995, Komova is the daughter of 1986 Goodwill Games champion and 1985 world championships gold medalist Vera Kolesnikova.

Romania's Amelia Racea, a triple medalist at the 2008 Junior European Championships, finished 1.7 points behind Komova in the qualification to the all-around final. Andrea Foti of the fifth-place Italian team qualified in third.

On Tuesday, Russia claimed the first-ever men's team title at the European Youth Olympic Festival, a biennial event held since 1991.

Competition continues Thursday with the men's and women's all-around final. Check back with International Gymnast Magazine Online for more news and results from the Tampere.
