JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Jonathan Horton and Jordyn Wieber have given the United States a sweep at the American Cup.
Horton won his third American Cup on Saturday. The silver medalist at the Beijing Olympics moved from second to first with a solid performance on the parallel bars, then held on with a mostly error-free routine on the high bar.
Wieber won her second American Cup after getting in the field as an alternate when Britain's Nicole Hibbert was injured. She overcame a small deficit in the final women's event, the floor exercise, to make up ground on world champion Aliya Mustafina of Russia.
Alexandra Raisman of the United States was third.
Ukraine's Mykola Kuksenkov was second on the men's side, followed by American Jake Dalton.
