On vault, Giorgia Villa (Italy) was the queen of execution in qualifications with scores in the 9.2s for both her DTY and her FTY. But Asia D’Amato (also from Italy) – with DTY and Lopez and Silviana Sfiringu (Romania) – with DTY and Tsuk full, will be able to challenge her for the gold medal if they clean up their execution.

On bars two Russians qualified first  and second: Kseniia Klimenko and Irina Komnova. Still, it will be a disputed final as Carolann Heduit (France) and Elisa Iorio (Italy) will be ready to fight for the medals as well.

Two Italians (Iorio and Villa) and two Brits (Morgan and Hilton) qualified for the beam final. But the favorite is still Kseniia Klimenko (Russia) who will make sure not to repeat the mistakes from qualifications.

Romania and Russia dominated floor in qualifications and they will likely dispute also the medals in event finals. Vladislava Urazova is the favorite due to a beautifully executed and difficult routine while team mate Olga Astefeva has less difficult tumbling but is very clean in execution. Romanians Antonia Duta and Ioana Stanciulescu are not quite as polished but still very dynamic and amazing tumblers.

Here are the complete results for each event:
