Olympic champion Gabrielle Douglas led a U.S. sweep of the medals on Saturday at the City of Jesolo Trophy in Italy.

The U.S. dominated the competition in Jesolo once again, winning the team title and sweeping the all-around medals.

The U.S. team, which included Douglas and Olympic teammate Alexandra Raisman, easily won the team title with 237.350. Brazil took second with 223.700, topping the host Italian team's 222.400.

Brazil sent its A squad to Jesolo, including Olympic hopefuls Flávia Saraiva and Rebeca Andrade, and veterans Daniele Hypólito and Jade Barbosa. The Brazilian team must compete in April at the Olympic test event in order to qualify to the Olympics this summer in Rio.

Douglas hit cleanly for 59.650, topping teammates Ragan Smith (59.050) and Lauren Hernandez (58.550). The Americans had the highest scores on each event with Douglas' led on vault with her double-twisting Yurchenko (15.300), Ashton Locklear on uneven bars (inside Stalder to inside-Stalder Shaposhnikova to Pak salto; Maloney to bail to Stalder-hecht to high bar; inside Stalder blind to Jaeger; full-twisting double; 15.650), Hernandez on balance beam (15.300) and Raisman on floor exercise (1 1/2 to to Arabian double front; piked Arabian double front; double layout double pike; 14.600).

Saraiva finished fourth all-around, showing a new double-twisting Yurchenko on vault (15.050) and tying Raisman for the second-highest score on balance beam (14.950) for a beautiful exercise (ff, layout, layout; RO, two-foot layout; punch front; two front aerials to a side somi; RO, double pike).

No junior team competition was held, but the U.S. swept the all-around medals. The powerful Jordan Chiles (58.250) won the all-around and had the highest score of the day with 15.700 on vault for her Amanar. Emma Malabuyo (56.150) took second over Gabby Perea (55.750).

The competition concludes Sunday with the apparatus finals.
