The Dutch dominated an international tournament against Belgium and Sweden, held Saturday in Waalwijk.

The host nation nabbed a double team victory: the senior men defeated Belgium, 249.90-245.40, while the junior women topped Sweden, 157.25-149.35.

The senior female competition was an intrasquad for the Dutch women, with Joy Goedkoop earning a victory over Lisa Top and Maartje Ruikes.

Days after a judge ruled she should still be in contention for the Olympics, Céline van Gerner was back in competition on two events. Van Gerner notched the top mark on uneven bars, 14.900, and scored 12.900 on beam.

"It felt like old times," said van Gerner, who missed January's pre-Olympic test event with an injury. "I got back into rhythm on beam, which is key. Bars went just fine."

On Monday, a Dutch judge ruled in favor of van Gerner, who filed a lawsuit stating the Dutch federation's selection of Wyomi Masela for the team's sole Olympic berth was premature. The judge ruled that the federation should wait to decide until after the European championships in May and Ghent Challenger Cup in June. The ruling was the same in the case brought earlier by Jeffrey Wammes, who successfully sued the federation after it named Epke Zonderland as its representative for London.

Masela, meanwhile, averaged 14.275 on vault (14.550 for double-twisting Yurchenko and 14.000 for Podkopayeva) and scored 13.650 on floor exercise in Waalwijk. Masela, third on vault at the Olympic test event, said she was happy with her performance Saturday.

"I scored on average higher than at the test event in London, but this is only the first step," Masela said.

Wammes was absent from Waalwijk, but Zonderland competed two events, scoring 14.550 on parallel bars and 15.100 on high bar.
