USA Completes Near Sweep in Jesolo
(13 votes, average 4.08 out of 5)


The U.S. women won seven of eight apparatus finals Sunday as the 7th City of Jesolo Trophy concluded in Italy.

The competition included female gymnasts from the host nation, Australia, Japan, Romania and the United States.

On Saturday, the U.S. won both junior and senior team titles and swept the all-around medals. Olympic gold medalist Kyla Ross topped the all-around competition for the seniors, while U.S. junior champion Bailie Key won the junior crown.

Super trickster Mykayla Skinner won both vault (Amanar and Cheng Fei) and floor exercise (layout and tucked double-doubles) in the senior division. Madison Kocian won the uneven bars title over Ross.

Romanian first-year senior Andreea Munteanu prevented a total U.S. sweep by winning the gold medal on balance beam.

In the junior competition, Key added three more gold medals to her haul, winning everything but balance beam. Key trains under the U.S. first world all-around champion, Kim Zmeskal.

Norah Flatley, who trains under Liang Chow in Iowa, won balance beam.

The U.S. juniors also won three of four silver medals, with the exception of Romanian Laura Jurca's silver medal on floor exercise.
