13th September 2010, Comments 0 comments


Dutch gymnasts Yuri van Gelder and Jeffrey Wammes have won gold medals at the World Cup 2010 Gymanstics, held in the Belgian city of Ghent.

Van Gelder won gold on the rings in his first performance since his suspension for doping was lifted. He said he still isn't in top form but is on his way to getting there.

It is not yet clear whether he will be selected to join the Dutch team for the Artistic Gymnastic World Championships to be held in Rotterdam this October. The line-up will be announced on 21 September.

A day after failing at the high bar and and on the floor, Jeffrey Wammes on Sunday managed to clinch the gold on the vault with an average score of 16,000.
