Gymnastics: Devyatovskiy, Bross win at American Cup

Associated Press

WORCESTER, Mass. Russia's Maxim Devyatovskiy has defeated a deep men's field to win the American Cup, the first international event of the gymnastics season.

American Rebecca Bross won the women's competition on Saturday, finishing ahead of 15-year old American Alexandra Raisman, who comes from about 45 miles away in Needham, in a strong showing for the Americans.

American Jonathan Horton, the leader after four events, scored just a 13.70 in the next to last event parallel bars and was second overall.

Germany's Fabian Hambuechen, last year's American Cup champ, finished fourth.
