(9 votes, average 4.56 out of 5)

Italy upset Romania for the women's team title Wednesday at the European Youth Olympic Festival, a multisport event taking place this week in Trabzon, Turkey.

Star-on-the-rise Larisa Iordache led Romania to a comfortable lead over Germany in the third of four subdivisions, but Italy snatched first place in the final session. Needing a score of 27.951 in the final rotation, Erika Fasana and Elisa Meneghini scored a 28.350 total to vault Italy to the gold medal.


Italians Erika Fasana, Francesca Deagostini and Elise Meneghini show off their gold medals in Trabzon.

The Italian women were third at the 2005 and 2009 editions of the European Youth Olympic Festival. This year's trio is coached in Trabzon by by Romanian Rodica Demetrescu and Russian Anton Stolyar.

Germany won the bronze by a full point over defending champion Russia, which struggled on uneven bars and balance beam. Russia competed without the services of Junior European champions Anastasia Grishina (sore hamstring) and Anastasia Sidorova (hand injury sustained in a bicycle accident).

Iordache led the all-around qualification, scoring 57.800 to top Fasana (55.300), Meneghini (54.700) and Russia's Anna Rodionova (54.100). Iordache also notched the highest individual score with a 15.500 on balance beam, and qualified first to the floor final as well (14.400).

Fasana was the top gymnast on vault (14.350), while Germany's Sophie Scheder outscored the field on uneven bars (14.150).

The European Youth Olympic Festival is a multisport event held biennially to foster friendship and competition among young athletes. The 2011 edition includes 4,000 athletes from 49 nations competing in nine Olympic sports. The gymnastics competition is open to junior men born in 1994 and 1995 and women born in 1996 and 1997.

Competition continues Thursday in Trabzon with the all-around finals, and concludes Friday with the apparatus finals.
