Tjaša Kysselef scraped the vault gold medal in the 2021 International Gymnastics Federation (FIG) Artistic Gymnastics World Cup series in front of a home crowd in Koper.

The Slovenian achieved a score of 13.825 to pip Hungary's Csenge Maria Bácskay as the 18-year-old was awarded marginally less with 13.725.

Ukrainian Yana Federova rounded out the top three with a 13.300.

Slovakia's Barbora Mokošová pulled off an 8.150 execution on a 5.5 difficulty routine to blow away the competition on the uneven bars, scoring 13.650.

Zója Székely of Hungary took silver while Lucija Hribar claimed bronze.

In the floor exercise final, Britain's Claudia Fragapane topped the table in front of Croatia's Ana Đerek and Dorina Böczögő of Hungary.

In the men's events, the Artistic Gymnastics Federation of Russia (AGFR) athlete Kirill Prokopev beat Canadian William Emard by the smallest of margins in the men's floor competition.

The two-times Summer Universiade gold medallist was awarded a lower execution score than Emard but got 0.2 more for the increased difficulty of his routine to score 14.650 compared to the 21-year-old's 14.550.

Albanian Matvei Petrov and Illia Kovtun of Ukraine both achieved a score of 14.650 but because the former's execution was slightly higher, he was awarded the pommel horse gold medal.

Vinzenz Höck of Austria's 14.800 on the rings was enough to see him secure the top spot from AGFR's Ilya Kibartas by 0.4 points.

A near perfect performance on the vault from Israeli Andrey Medvedev put him clear of Britain's Courtney Tulloch and Canada's Felix Dolci who won silver and bronze, respectively.

A 9.100 and 9.400 on two 5.60 rated routines gave the two-times Maccabiah Games gold medallist the advantage.

In the parallel bars Sercan Demir of Turkey edged victory ahead of Farukh Nabiyez, Kazakhstan's best performer, while Italian Mario Macchiati claimed bronze.

The smallest margin of victory was seen in the horizontal bar as Belgium's Maxime Gentges beat Dávid Vecsernyés of Hungary by 13.800 points to 13.750.

The next edition of the World Challenge Cup series is set to take place in Mersin in Turkey from September 9 to 12.
