Chinese Olympic champions Cheng Fei and He Kexin will be among a star-studded line-up at the gymnastics World Cup finals next month in Madrid, organizers said on Sunday.

Romanian veteran Sandra Izbasa will also be taking part in the Dec.12-14 event.

Tomita Hiroyuki, member of the Japanese team, which won gold in the 2004 Athens Olympics, recently announced he would retire after the Madrid finals.

"I am feeling weaker every year and every time it is harder for me to perform the kind of artistic gymnastic that I want. I have had a great career," said the 27-year-old Hiroyuki.

Other big names including Russian Anton Golotsutskov and Elena Zamolodchikova, Dutch Suzanne Harmes, Yuri van Gelder and Jeffrey Wammes, will also be present in Madrid.

The organizing committee said that the best eight male and female athletes in the official ranking of the International Federation of Gymnastics will attend.
