Romania swept the team and all-around titles at a tri-meet against Belgium and France, held Saturday in Avoine, France.

In the senior competition, 2012 Olympian Larisa Iordache led Romania to first place over France and Belgium. The junior Romanian squad defeated Belgium, with host France finishing third.

Iordache easily topped the all-around competition by nearly 3 full points over teammate Diana Bulimar. Stefania Stanila finished .3 behind Bulimar to give Romania a sweep of the senior all-around medals.

Iordache had the highest score on every event, with 15.00 on vault for a strong double-twisting Yurchenko, 14.450 on uneven bars (Stalder full to Maloney-half; giant blind to Jaeger; toe-on full to Tkatchev to Pak; Maloney; full-twisting double tuck); 15.400 on balance beam (ff to nailed tucked full; RO two-foot layout; full turn in Y; front aerial, switch leap, wolf jump; side somi; RO ff triple twist) and 14.350 on floor exercise (stuck piked full-in; tucked full-in; triple twist; double pike).

In the junior competition, Andreea Iridon scored 55 to top France's Loan His (54.600) and Romania's Laura Jurca (54.350). Iridion was dynamic on balance beam (clean 1 1/2 turn in Y; side somi; ff back pike; switch leap to full turn in Y; front aerial to needle scale; ff, ff, double pike).

Jurca had the high score on vault for the only double-twisting Yurchenko of the junior competition, while Nina Derwael (Belgium) had the best score on uneven bars (13.850). Romanian Andra Stoica, fifth all-around, earned the top mark on floor exercise for very clean tumbling (tucked full-in; double tuck; 21/2 punch front; double pike).
