American Rebecca Bross and Russian Maxim Devyatovsky won the all-around titles at this year's American Cup in Worcester, MA. Bross was the favorite on the women's side, and breezed through the first two events, competing a solid Yurchenko double on vault, and a clean and aggressive bar set (high Jaeger, stuck full-in dismount).
On beam Bross had to save a full spin down on one knee when her foot missed, but made her standing Arabian and Arabian double front dismount (big step). She performed a new routine on floor, with an upgraded final pass -- back 2.5 punch front full -- and has impressive tumbling on her other passes as well (front layout to double front mount; back 1.5 to punch front double full). Bross ended up with the top score on three events, and tied for second on vault.
American teammate Alexandra Raisman was second all-around, and earned the highest score on vault. She also showed some great potential on beam (great double Arabian dismount) and floor (powerful back 1.5 to Arabian double front mount). It looks like she could upgrade her other floor passes (triple full; double tuck; double pike) pretty easily.
Men's champ Devyatovsky was solid on every event, and topped American Jonathan Horton in the end (90.600-90.150) because of Horton's missed parallel bars set. American Chris Brooks took third, earning the highest scores on floor, high bar, and parallel bars. (Nice stuck front layout to punch double front and stuck full-out dismount on floor, great lines on parallel bars and high bar).
One final highlight of the meet: American Kytra Hunter did an exhibition floor routine and threw an amazing full-twisting double layout mount. Check it out here.
