Natalia Kapitonova, a gymnast from Russia, took a second gold medal on Saturday at the Russian championships in Kazan.

Kapitonova, 16, tied co-world champion Daria Spiridonova (Moscow) for the gold medal on uneven bars, which remains the Russian women's strongest event. Both gymnasts performed extremely clean routines, with Kapitonova particularly impressive in hitting her handstands. Spiridonova, a finalist on bars at last summer's Olympic Games, hit her best routine of the week in finals. The lanky Daria Skrypnik, the top qualifier from Wednesday's team competition, won the bronze medal.

First-year senior Anastasia Ilyankova finished fourth with a brilliant opening sequence. Ilyankova, who won the uneven bars and balance beam at the 2016 Junior European Championships, competed bars only in Kazan but has a strong chance of making this year's Russian team to the upcoming European championships.

2016 Olympian Seda Tutkhalyan won the women's vault title, topping Lilia Akhaimova and Angelina Melnikova.

In the men's competition, Kirill Prokopyev won floor exercise. Two-time Olympian David Belyavsky won a close pommel horse final. Sergei Yeltsov  won the silver with, one tenth ahead of Prokopyev.

Lankin won the gold medal on still rings over veteran Nikita Ignatyev and Daniil Kazachkov.
