Laura Zeng competes at the U.S. Gymnastics Championships on July 4, 2019 in Des Moines, Iowa.


A pair of winning streaks kept on rolling Saturday night in the USA Gymnastics Championships.

Laura Zeng, a 2016 Olympian and 2014 Youth Olympic Games bronze medalist, won her fifth consecutive all-around U.S. championship in rhythmic gymnastics. She is the first to win more than three consecutive titles since Sue Soffe won six from 1976 to 1981.

In men’s trampoline, Jeffrey Gluckstein won his third national title in a row and in the process extended the family hold on the national championship to 11 years. Since 2009, all the U.S. men’s trampoline titles have been captured by either Jeffrey, a six-time champion who is trying to make his first Olympic team in 2020, or his older brother, Steven, a 2012 Olympian and 2016 Olympic alternate who is now retired from competition.

Their performances highlighted the final night of competition at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, Iowa.

Zeng, whose Youth Olympic Games bronze medal made her the first U.S. rhythmic gymnast to win a medal at an Olympic or Youth Olympic Games, topped the all-around field Saturday with a score of 155.850. Zeng also won gold medals in the individual hoop, ball and clubs finals in the individual competition Thursday and Friday.

Evita Griskenas, the only other rhythmic gymnast to win an individual event, finished runner-up to Zeng in the all-around with a total score of 154.100. Camilla Feeley finished third, scoring 147.400.

The Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 will feature competition in clubs, hoop, ball and ribbon in the all-around event. Zeng finished 11th in her Olympic debut in Rio in 2016.

Jeffrey Gluckstein won his third consecutive title in men’s trampoline, topping Aliaksei Shostak by nearly three points. Gluckstein totaled 167.080 points. Shostak finished with 164.105 points to finish second and Cody Gesuelli was third with 161.250 points.

Gluckstein won his first national title in 2011, two years after Steven began his run. Beginning in 2009, Steven Gluckstein won five national trampoline titles in eight years. The years Steven didn’t win, Jeffrey did.

Jessica Stevens, a member of the world championship team the last two years, won the senior women’s trampoline for the first time with a score of 154.750. Nicole Ahsinger, a 2016 Olympian and 2014 Youth Olympian, was runner-up with a score of 154.440. Charlotte Drury was third with a score of 154.010.
