Chinese Gymnasts Dominate Doha Cup
(9 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

Chinese gymnasts qualified first in five of 10 events Thursday at the FIG Challenger Cup in Doha, Qatar. China's Yao Jinnan qualified first on floor exercise and second on both uneven bars and balance beam.

Chinese gymnasts qualified first in half the events Thursday at the FIG Challenger Cup at the Aspire Arena in Doha, Qatar.

Youth Olympic Games gold medalist Tan Sixin led qualification on both uneven bars and balance beam. Teammate Yao Jinnan, a triple gold medalist at the recent FIG Challenger Cup in Cottbus, was second to Tan on bars and beam but came out on top on women's floor exercise.

Three-time Brazilian Olympian Daniele Hypolito qualified first on women's vault.

In the men's qualification, Chinese gymnasts Huang Yuguo (vault) and Zou Kai (high bar) each led one event.

Kazakh gymnasts also led two events: Stepan Gorbachyov (floor exercise) and Olympian Yernar Yerimbetov (parallel bars).

Jordanian strong man Ali Al-Asi led the qualification on still rings, while regional power Egypt qualified five gymnasts to finals.

Qatari gymnasts Shaden Wohdan and Aljazy Al-Habshi both qualified to the women's vault final, though only eight gymnasts took part.

"I hope I can do well in this competition," Al Habshi said. "We are preparing ourselves for the Pan Arab Games (Dec. 2-23 in Doha)."

The Qatari gymnasts are coached by Romanians Razvan Selariu and his wife, Camelia Mindricel Selariu.

"They have been in training for quite some time now," said Mohammed Al Jaber, secretary-ceneral of the Qatar Gymnastics Federation. "We hope this event will give them a good opportunity to show how well they can do against the world's best."

Competition continues Friday with the first day of apparatus finals.
