Russian Women Best British in Utrecht
(4 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)


The Russian women captured the team title as competition continued Wednesday at the 2013 European Youth Olympic Festival in Utrecht, Netherlands.

Held every two years, the European Youth Olympic Festival is a multi-sport event showcasing the continent's best junior athletes. This year's edition features nine sports, including athletics, basketball, gymnastics, judo and swimming.

Russia, which finished out of the medals at the 2011 European Youth Olympic Festival in Trabzon, was golden again, topping Great Britain and Romania. Defending champion Italy fell to fifth.

After a clean start on vault, Russians Maria Kharenkova and Maria Bondareva performed disastrously on uneven bars (both scores under 12). Viktoria Kuzmina, the 2012 Junior European silver medalist on bars, contributed 13.600 to keep the team's hope alive. The team was spectacular on balance beam with a 15.050 from Kharenkova (beautiful ff, ff two-foot layout) and 14.850 from Bondareva. Two clean routines on floor exercise kept the team ahead of Great Britain by .55.

The British crushed the field on vault with three double-twisting Yurchenkos, scoring an event high of 29.550. Tyesha Mattis qualified first to the all-around final and Ellie Downie led qualification on vault.

"It feels good. We worked really hard to achieve this results and I feel very relieved," Matthis said. "In terms of the all-around I didn’t expect to achieve this. I just did great routines and I hope to perform in the final as well as I did today."

Competition continues Thursday with the all-around finals for both men and women.
