Europeans Bronze 'A New Beginning' For Iordache
(9 votes, average 3.78 out of 5)

Larisa Iordache's bronze medal on balance beam at last month's European Championships in Cluj has given the veteran gymnast new motivation.

Veteran Romanian gymnast Larisa Iordache said that winning the bronze medal on balance beam at last month's European Championships in Cluj-Napoca has given her new motivation.

"It was the first time in my life that I experienced such an atmosphere, and I am glad that I had the opportunity to get here," said Iordache, who turns 21 in June.

The sold-out European championships in Cluj was the largest gymnastics event ever held in Romania. It was only the second Europeans held in Romania following the inaugural women's event, which took place in Bucharest in 1957.

A lingering injury left Iordache able to compete on only balance beam and uneven bars in Cluj, her first major international competition since the 2015 World Championships in Glasgow. Her bronze on beam was her 12th medal won at senior European championships. She was first with the Romanian team, first on floor exercise and second on balance beam at the 2012 Europeans in Brussels; second all-around, first on balance beam, second (tie) on vault and second on floor exercise at the 2013 Europeans in Moscow; and first (tie) on floor exercise, second on vault and second on balance beam at the 2014 Europeans in Sofia. A broken hand kept her out of the 2016 European Championships in Bern.

"Unfortunately (I competed) only on two apparatus," she said, "but it is a new beginning and a start for me, and I hope that from now on I shall progress more and more."

(3 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

Slovenian Olympian Teja Belak, who celebrated her 23rd birthday by placing seventh on vault at the recent European Championships in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, told IG that her performance encouraged her after her faulty finish at last summer's Olympic Games in Rio.

"I'm very happy with the results," said Belak in the mixed zone following the vault final that took place on April 22, her 23rd birthday. "In Rio, I had such a problem with my leg, and so all the time I had problems. Now I'm good, so this keeps me going."

Belak, whom the Cluj audience serenaded by singing "Happy Birthday To You" after she completed her vaults, said she plans to improve for future competitions.

"These vaults aren't so good [to break into] the medals, so I need to push to score higher," said Belak of the handspring layout front full and Yurchenko 1 1/2 vaults she performed in Cluj.

Belak, whose results on vault include fourth place at the 2013 Europeans in Moscow, eighth at the 2015 Europeans in Montpellier and sixth at the 2016 Europeans in Bern, said she continues to enjoy the sport, despite its challenges.

"I'm tired all the time, but I like gymnastics, so this keeps me going," she said.

Vernyayev On Europeans Lead: 'I Feel Good'
(2 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

Oleg Vernyayev of Ukraine told IG that his field-leading performance in Wednesday's qualifications at the European Championships in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, matched his expectations for this early stage of competition.

Oleg Vernyayev of Ukraine told IG that his field-leading performance in Wednesday's qualifications at the European Championships in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, matched his expectations for this early stage of competition.

"I feel good now," said Vernyayev, whose total of 85.966 points ranked him first in the all-around standings, ahead of Russia's Artur Dalaloyan (85.198) and Great Britain's James Hall (84.473). "I have the final ahead, so I think my performance was normal for today."

A couple of landing issues notwithstanding, Vernyayev's routines were solid and left him confident as he prepares for Friday's all-around final. He qualified for every individual final except for still rings.

"I just want to work my routines without mistakes, and I think that's enough for me," said Vernyayev, who placed first all-around and first on parallel bars at the 2015 Europeans in Montpellier, France.

No all-around contest took place at the 2016 Europeans in Bern, where Vernyayev placed first on vault and second on parallel bars.

Hall said his results reflect his determination to prove himself against the continent's best gymnasts.

"I wanted to get out there on the world stage and show them that I could do it," Hall said. "Now that I made the all-around final, I can relax and give it my all, and be really pleased with the outcome."

2016 German Olympic team reserve Philipp Herder and 2016 Olympic all-around finalist Eddy Yusof of Switzerland shared Hall's enthusiasm as they assessed their own results.

"I'm very satisfied," said Herder, who qualified ninth to Friday's all-around final. "I felt very good on pommel horse. Rings was perfect for me, and I did a new vault, a Roche, and I was very satisfied since it went well. So I was able to head to p-bars and high bar, and finish up on floor. I don't need to be afraid after this competition. I can give all that I have."

Yusof, who placed 12th all-around at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, sees room for improvement in Friday's all-around final.

"I had one mistake today, on high bar," he told IG. "It was a silly mistake and I know how to do better. I think the most important thing is to recover well, and get a lot of sleep, in order to be prepared and fit again on Friday."

Spain's Rayderly Zapata qualified first to the floor exercise final, while Olympic champions Krisztián Berki of Hungary (pommel horse) and Eleftherios Petrounias of Greece (still rings) both led their respective specialties. Romania's Marian Drăgulescu qualified first to the men's vault final and second on floor exercise. Germany's Marcel Nguyen (parallel bars) and Switzerland's Oliver Hegi (high bar) also led qualification.

Women's qualifications take place Thursday, followed by the men's and women's all-around finals on Friday, and the men's and women's apparatus finals on Saturday and Sunday. No team competition is being contested.

Oklahoma, UCLA, Utah Advance To Super Six After First Qualifying Session
(2 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

Even with a few mistakes, top-ranked Oklahoma won the first qualifying session Friday afternoon at the 2017 NCAA Women's Championships in St. Louis. Senior Chayse Capps (pictured) bounced out of the floor area after a double pike in rotation one, and freshman Maggie Nichols, the No. 1-ranked all-arounder, was near perfect before dropping off balance beam on a front salto in the final rotation.

The Sooners posted a 197.725 and will be joined by UCLA (197.500) and Utah (197.050) tomorrow in the Super Six Finals.

Three freshmen grabbed the top spots in the all-around after the first qualification session: Utah's MyKayla Skinner (39.6125), and UCLA teammates Kyla Ross (39.575) and Madison Kocian (39.550). Maddie Karr (Denver) sits in fourth (39.475) and Baely Rowe (Utah) and Hailey Burleson (Washington) tied for fifth with 39.400.

Washington continued its amazing run under first-year head coach Elise Ray and placed fourth (196.5625), followed by Denver (196.475) and Oregon State (196.3625).

The all-around and apparatus champions will be determined after the second qualifying session tonight.

Apparatus leaders after session 1.

Vault: Four gymnasts are tied with 9.90: Skinner, Capps, AJ Jackson (Oklahoma), Nichols.

Oklahoma Aims For Its Third NCAA Women's Title In St. Louis
(1 vote, average 5.00 out of 5)

The Oklahoma women are favored to win the 2017 NCAA Championships, which is hardly an overstatement. The only meet they have lost in the past three years was to LSU, their first meet of the 2016 season. OU won its first NCAA title in 2014, when it tied Florida.

The Sooners went undefeated in 2015 and the pressure increased with every victory and eventually cost them back-to-back championships. They finished third, behind Florida and Utah.

"Even though we were winning by tenths, it still held a lot of weight on their shoulders," said Oklahoma coach K.J. Kindler (pictured with Maggie Nichols). "And though we didn't emphasize it, I think they felt it."

2015 also was the year that Utah came within 0.5 of earning its elusive 10th NCAA crown, which would have been a fitting end for head coach Greg Marsden, who retired after 40 years. Just days after Florida's win, head coach Rhonda Faehn resigned to become Sr. Vice President of the Women's Program at USA Gymnastics. The Gators quickly hired Auburn assistant Jenny Rowland, but Florida finished fourth in 2016.

Kindler has built a strong program at OU in 11 years. LSU's D-D Breaux has done the same over four decades, and is coming off a victory at the highly competitive SEC Championships and a program-best runner-up finish at the 2016 NCAAs. LSU's only loss this season was to Oklahoma, a quad meet held in St. Charles, Mo., which is not too far from St. Louis, where the NCAA Championships begin on Friday, April 14.

Oklahoma is undefeated again this season, but perhaps the Sooners have learned to use that accomplishment to their advantage. The team also has a chance to go 1-2 in the all-around with top-ranked Maggie Nichols and Chayse Capps (No. 3), the latter placing second to Florida's Bridget Sloan last year. Utah's MyKayla Skinner is ranked No. 2.

Washington's first-year head coach Elise Ray can certainly feel proud in qualifying her team to the big dance. Word has it that she sought advice from Kindler, which proved to be a good move.

Beyond the OU-LSU battle that definitely could materialize, other teams to watch will be Florida, Utah, Michigan and UCLA. The bottom half of the rankings include Denver, Alabama, Georgia, Nebraska, Washington and Oregon State.
