Morgan Hurd, from Middletown, Del., won the all-around title in the world gymnastics championships Friday night.
Hurd finished with 55.232 points, 0.101 points better than Canadian Ellie Black who won silver, followed by Eremina Elena of Russia finishing third with 54.799 points.
Hurd was the only American in the final after Ragan Smith, the reigning U.S. National Champion, had to withdraw from competition after suffering an injured ankle during warmups.
The 16-year old finished sixth at the P&G Championships back in August before being named to the four-woman world team at the following month’s selection camp.
Hurd, who trains at First State Gymnastics in Newark, Del., becomes the youngest all-around champion since 2010, and with the victory pushes the streak of consecutive U.S. titles to seven.
