German Teams Top Romania, Switzerland
(7 votes, average 4.43 out of 5)

The German men and women were victorious over Romania and Switzerland at a tri-meet held Saturday in the Swiss city of Obersiggenthal.

The competition format had up to five gymnasts competing on each event, with the top three scores counting for the team total.

In the women's competition, Germany upset Romania, the 2014 European champion, 220.000-219.050. The Romanian women had the highest team scores on vault, balance beam and floor exercise, but lost more than 7 points to Germany on uneven bars.

The German gymnasts counted all scores in the 14s on bars. Lisa Katharina Hill had the high score with 14.650, followed by Kim Bui's 14.600 and Sophie Scheder's 14.150.

Larisa Iordache, who won the Romanian national title last week, took first place once again. With the best score on three of the four events, Iordache won by more than 2 points over Swiss Olympian Giulia Steingruber, 58.950-56.700. Germany's Pauline Schäfer won the bronze with 55.600.

The German men were also victorious, scoring 342.800 to Romania's 338.550 and Switzerland's 337.950.

German head coach Andreas Hirsch said his team used the event as a warm-up for the upcoming world championships in Nanning.

"We won comfortably, that was important," said Berlin. "But that was not our focus. Rather, the aim was to rehearse our routines that we will need for the world championships in China."

Veteran Fabian Hambüchen fell on pommel horse, vault and high bar (full-twisting layout Jaeger) but still finished third all-around behind Romania's Andrei Muntean and Switzerland's Eddy Yusof. 2012 Olympic silver medalist Marcel Nguyen did not do the all-around because of a sore back, Hirsch said.
