MARSEILLE, France -- Canadian gymnasts closed out the final day of competition at the Massilia women's international competition on Sunday with gold, silver and bronze medals in different events.

Gabriella Douglas, from Mississauga, Ont., topped the field in the beam final with a score of 13.850 points.

Fransolet Berangere of Belgium was second with a score of 13.500 and Victoria Kozmina of Russia was third at 13.425.

In the floor final, national junior team member Heaven Latimer of Burford, Ont., won the silver medal, adding to her growing international medal collection.

Victoria Moors of Cambridge, Ont., a key member of Canada's 2012 Olympic team, placed fifth in the combined junior-senior competition with a new routine.

"It's a beautiful routine with some old tumbling lines combined with new ones but because it's so new, the degree of difficulty still needs to increase," said Canadian team director Kyna Fletcher.

In the vault final, Sabrina Gill, from Mississauga, won the bronze medal.

National team members Aleeza Hu of Richmond Hill, Ont., Kaitlyn Hofland of Georgetown, Ont., and Montreal's Victoria Kayen Woo finished fourth, fifth and six respectively.

Rounding out the Canadian results, Woo placed sixth in the uneven bars final.
