Wunderkind Mustafina wins second gold for Russia at World Gymnastics

Wunderkind Mustafina wins second gold for Russia at World Gymnastics
Russia's Alya Mustafina has picked up another gold at the World Artistic Gymnastics Championships.

The sport’s rising star won the all-around event in the Netherlands to add to her success in the team event.

The 16-year-old led from the start, with the best result in the vault, and stayed in control throughout, courtesy of top-three finishes on the uneven bars, balance beam and floor.

China's Jiang Yuan claimed silver, with American Rebecca Bross settling for bonze.

Mustafina is now a double World Champion, but is gunning for more glory. Another four medals are up for grabs in the apparatus finals this weekend.
