    Talia De Troyer, Britt Vanderdonckt and Charlotte Van Royen made it three out of three at the European Games.  

    The women’s acrobatic gymnastics team, who won gold in dynamic exercise and silver in static on Tuesday, won the overall competition gold during the European Games in Minsk on Sunday. 

    Belgium came top with a grade of 29.960. Portugal (29.110) and Belorussia (29.060) completed the top three. 

    It was Team Belgium’s fourth medal in the second European Games. They got three in acrogym, a non-Olympic discipline. The fourth was won by judoka Jorre Verstraeten on Saturday, in the under 60kg category. Mattias Cassé, who made it to the final of the under 81kg on Sunday afternoon, won a fifth. His fight against Bulgarian Ivaylo Ivanov is to determine which medal.
