Latin American gymnasts won eight of 10 gold medals at the 2015 Anadia World Challenger Cup, held this weekend in Portugal.

The majority of the titles were divided by Argentina, Cuba, Colombia, and Venezuela, with Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Puerto Rico earning medals as well.

Cuba's Manrique Larduet medaled on five of the events, taking titles on floor exercise, vault and parallel bars and silver medals on still rings and parallel bars. The young Larduet, who turns 19 in July, showed himself to be a major contender for the upcoming Pan American Games in Toronto. On floor exercise, the powerful Larduet had some troubles on his landings (running piked double front; high piked Arabian double front; double-twisting front to Rudi; 2 1/2 twist punch front full; layout Thomas; triple twist dismount with an awkward landing) but still edged Slovenia's Žiga Šilc, 15.025-14.925. On vault, he showed huge distance on his triple-twisting Tsukahara (named for his compatriot Erick Lopez) and Randi. His high bar showed great amplitude on Tkatchev variations (layout-half; layout to straddled Tkatchev-half); clean layout double-double.

Colombian star Jossimar Calvo, the 2011 Pan American Games all-around champion, struck gold on pommel horse and parallel bars. Just sixth in qualification on pommel horse with a 14.400, Calvo scored 15.325 in finals to take the title over Latvian Dmitrijs Trefilovs (15.100) and French world medalist Cyril Tommasone (14.950). On parallel bars, Calvo showed good control, ending with a Bhavsar to the end of the bars, followed by a full-twisting double off the end. His routine earned the highest score of the day, 15.950 (6.8 Difficulty).

Argentina's Federico Molinari won the still rings title over Larduet and Puerto Rican veteran Tommy Ramos.

Cuba's Marcia Vidaux, a first-year senior, is an exciting prospect for Cuba. She vaulted a double-twisting Tsukahara and layout Rudi to take the title over world finalist Alexa Moreno (Mexico), who performed the same vaults. Chile's Makarena Pinto vaulted to third.

Two-time Venezuelan Olympian Jessica Lopez won the gold on uneven bars with a packed routine, showing a piked Tkatchev to Pak salto; Maloney uprise full pirouette to Tkatchev-Gienger competition; Jaeger and double front dismount from elgrip. Portugal's Ana Filipa Martins claimed second ahead of Vidaux.

Sweden's Emma Larsson won the balance beam title over Argentina's Ayelen Tarabini, with New Zealand's Charlotte Sullivan taking the bronze. On floor exercise, Hungarian Dorina Böczögő, also a two-time Olympian, took the gold medal over Tarabini and Slovenian Olympian Saša Golob.

The Anadia tournament is the final FIG World Cup event of the spring; the series concludes in Sept. 17-20 in Osijek, Croatia.
