After winning all but one event on Saturday, Japanese gymnasts again won four of five gold medals as the 2014 Toyota International concluded Sunday in Toyota City.

Japan swept the women's competition, with golds going to Asuka Teramoto on balance beam and Mai Murakami on floor exercise. Murakami also won the gold on women's vault on Saturday.

Canada's Madison Copiak, who won the bronze on uneven bars in Toyota City, grabbed another medal with the silver on beam ahead of Korea's Kim Chae Yeon.

Olympic champion Yang Hak Seon (Korea) was the lone guest champion on Sunday, as he outvaulted Japanese star Kenzo Shirai and world and Olympic medalist Igor Radivilov.

World all-around bronze medalist Yusuke Tanaka was golden on parallel bars. His teammate Ryohei Kato, Saturday's floor exercise champion, took second ahead of Germany's Philipp Herder.

Five-time world all-around champion Kohei Uchimura competed high bar only, taking the title with his usual style (layout Kovacs; Cassina; half-Tak to Kolman; stuck layout double-double). Tanaka won silver over Canada's Jackson Payne.
