Moscow: Russia`s Aliya Mustafina won women`s all-around gold at the 5th European championships here.

Prior to the triumph, her fellow teammate David Belyavskiy topped the men`s all-around competition. This is the second time Mustafina has won a European championship.

"I`m pleased, just pleased," Mustafina told reporters. "I`m satisfied because winning the European championships is not so easy."

The 18-year-old gymnast, who won the gold medal on the uneven bars at London 2012 Summer Olympics, scored 59.032 points, beating 16-year-old Romanian gymnast Larisa Iordache by 0.60 points.
