Larson, Wieber Win US Classic

By July 25, 2010

Follow me on:

Mattie LarsonMattie Larson and Jordyn Wieber won the senior and junior all-around titles, respectively, at the 2010 US Classic. Larson had a fall on her beam dismount (round-off to back 2.5 twist), but performed well on the other events to score a 57.150. The highlight of her skills? A beautiful double layout mount on floor. Amanda Jetter placed second all-around (56.800), and Mackenzie Caquatto finished third with a 56.450.

Alicia Sacramone, competing in her first meet since retiring after the 2008 Olympics, performed a sky-high front handspring rudi vault and did a Yurchenko full for her second vault. She also hit a solid beam set that earned the highest beam score of the day (14.900). Also competing limited events were Rebecca Bross and Bridget Sloan. Both only did bars and beam. Bross won bars (15.450) and Sloan placed second behind Sacramone on beam (14.700).

Wieber dominated the junior field, winning the all-around (59.950), vault (15.900), and bars (14.850). Katelyn Ohashi was second in the all-around (59.100) and 2009 US junior national champ Kyla Ross was third with a 58.700. Wieber's Amanar vault earned the top score on any event in the competition.
