Great Britain scored a double victory over France, Germany and Switzerland at a junior women's quad meet held Saturday in Berkeim, Baden-Württemberg.

Britain topped France by just over 2 points, mostly thanks to the superior vaulting. The British tallied 43.150 on vault, nearly 3 points ahead of France on that event.

Amy Tinkler, the 2013 British junior champion on uneven bars and floor exercise, impressed with a double-twisting Yurchenko vault and double layout on floor exercise. She missed her Shaposhnikova-half on uneven bars but still captured the all-around title to give the Brits a second title. Ellie Downie, younger sister of 2008 Olympian Becky Downie, took second overall.

Host Germany was the top team on uneven bars. All-around bronze medalist Kim Janas and teammate Leah Griesser each scored a high of 13.950. The promising Janas attempted a 5.9-Difficulty beam routine (punch front mount; front aerial, sissone; ff layout; beautiful switch Yang Bo) but fell twice (side aerial and double pike)

France topped the field on balance beam, with a high of 13.650 from Claire Martin for a cautious but elegant routine (ff layout; split jump, side somi; full turn in Y; Onodi; double pike).

Switzerland, which sent only three gymnasts, finished fourth.
