Gymnast Danell Leyva won the all-around silver at the final world cup event in Stuttgart, Germany, securing the series all-around championship for the United States in the three-stop world up series.
The 2012 Olympic bronze medalist earned a score of 86.631, finishing second to Germany’s Andreas Bretschneider, who scored 87.132 to take the gold. Russia’s Nikolai Kuksenkov won the bronze with an 86.432.
The world cup series is comprised of three events: the AT&T American Cup and events in Glasgow, Great Britain, and Stuttgart. The American men won the overall world cup title on the strength of silver medals at the AT&T American Cup (Donnell Whittenburg) and Stuttgart (Leyva) and a fourth-place finish in Glasgow (Akash Modi).
The U.S. also won the women’s series all-around championship after Amelia Hundley’s bronze medal in Stuttgart. Her 56.499 score was a mere 0.166 behind Canada’s 56.665. The gold went to Sophie Scheder of Germany, who scored a 57.032. Hundley was awarded the top scores in vault (14.933) and floor exercise (14.000).
Hundley’s bronze completed a U.S. medal haul in the series that includes golds at the AT&T American Cup (Gabby Douglas) and Glasgow (MyKayla Skinner) and silver at the AT&T American Cup (Maggie Nichols).
