Dorina Böczögö won the women’s all-around competition at the 6th Hungarian Grand Prix on Saturday, one of the final tests for some gymnasts hoping to be named to World Championship teams.

The Hungarian Gymnastics Federation noted that though Noemi Makra was expected to compete in Szombathely, she is currently suffering from a minor ankle injury and was given the time off so she could prevent future injury before Worlds.

In Makra’s absence, Böczögö was able to come out on top, even with the limitations she faced on uneven bars after suffering a shoulder injury earlier this summer. Beam was her biggest problem; she fell on the event even while working with lower difficulty.

Böczögö’s teammates Luca Diveky and Tünde Csillag placed second and third, respectively, with Diveky earning the highest score going into beam finals.

The Hungarian team coach named the World Championship team for the nation following the meet. It includes Eszter Romhanyi, Dalia Al Salty, and Eniko Horvath in addition to Makra, Böczögö, Csillag, and Diveky.

Following the meet, Böczögö commented: “I am glad I won the all-around…it was not my first Grand Prix victory. I only started training all four events a week ago due to injury, but mentally and physically, I was there [for the events she added on last week]. Beam didn’t go well…for some reason, I fell, but then I calmed down and it was fine. I’m satisfied.”

In the event final competition on Sunday, the Hungarians took seven of an eight available medals, including all four golds with Diveky winning vault and beam while Böczögö captured the top spot on bars and floor. Diveky also managed the bronze medal on bars while Al Salty won silver on beam and Csillag won silver on floor.

While there weren’t many opportunities for other athletes to sneak in, Ema Kajic of Croatia did a solid job on vault to win silver while her teammate Ira Popovic won bronze. Barbora Mokosova snuck in between the two Hungarians on bars for silver, and then brought home the bronze on both beam and floor, with solid routines on both.
