Russia dominated the men's and women's individual trampolining competitions at the International Gymnastics Federation (FIG) Trampoline World Cup in Baku today.

Mikhail Melnik claimed victory in the men's event at the National Gymnastics Arena in the Azerbaijani capital.

He finished third in the qualification standings yesterday, but improved today by scoring a total of 60.535 points in today's final to take the gold medal.

Azerbaijani gymnast Ilya Grishunin delighted the home crowd by taking silver with a score of 59.89.

It was a disappointing day for Rio 2016 men's individual gold medallist Uladzislau Hancharou of Belarus as he finished in seventh.

Further Russian success soon followed in the women's competition as Susana Kochesok proved too strong for the rest of the field.

Kochesok scored 55.615 in today's routine to narrowly edge compatriot Yana Pavlova, the leader in yesterday's qualification, who scored 55.545 which saw her finish in second place.

Belorussian gymnast, Tatyana Pyatrenya, finished in third with 55.210.

Russian domination came to a swift end in the synchronised competitions as Kazakhstan's Pirmammad Aliyev and Danil Mussabayev took gold in the men's event.
