Russia's Seda Tutkhalyan topped the women's qualification Monday as the 2014 Youth Olympic Games continued in Nanjing, China.

The 2nd Youth Olympic Games, which officially opened Saturday, includes more than 3,600 athletes from 201 nations competing in 28 sports. The artistic gymnastics competition is for female gymnasts born in 1999 and male gymnasts born in 1999 and male gymnasts born in 1997 and 1998.

Tutkhalyan, competing in the third and final session of qualification, edged Great Britain's Ellie Downie, 53.650-53.500. Both gymnasts committed major errors in qualification but had their high marks on vault with double-twisting Yurchenkos. Downie struggled on uneven bars (11.600) while Tutkhalyan had a break on uneven bars (extra swing after Maloney transition) and fell off balance beam (round off, two-foot layout).

Romania's Laura Jurca, also competing the third session, qualified in third place (53.250). China's own Wang Yan qualified fourth just behind Jurca (53.200) and impressed for 14.750 on balance beam (barani; switch ring; ff, ff, two-foot layout; tuck front; triple twist dismount). Wang landed low on her double-twisting Tsukahara and scored just 11.250 on floor exercise after falling on her first two passes (1 1/2 to triple twist; tucked full-in).

Brazil's Flavia Saraiva, sixth all-around, had the high mark on floor exercise (13.650) with her delightful and eflish routine (tucked full-in; 1 1/2 to layout front full; double pike; triple twist).

Competition continues Tuesday in Nanjing with the men's all-around final at 7 p.m. local time. The competition will be shown live on the official webcast at
