Kabaeva wins rhythmic gold
Alina Kabaeva in action
Kabaeva improved on her bronze medal from the 2000 Games
Russia's Alina Kabaeva produced a wonderful display of artistry to win gold in the rhythmic gymnastics individual all-round final.

The 21-year-old two-time world champion registered a score of 108.4 points after five events to finish ahead of compatriot Irina Tchachina.

Tchachina looked to be heading for victory but a mistake with the ribbon cost her the gold medal.

Ukraine's Anna Bessonova took the third position on the podium for bronze.
