The first ever European Games begin with opening ceremonies this Friday in Baku, Azerbaijan. Artistic gymnastics is one of many disciplines in this multi-sport event, and the women set to represent their countries began arriving for podium training yesterday and today.
The women begin with two days of qualifications on June 14 and 15. Qualifications will also act as the team final, using a three-up, two-count format to determine the medalists. All-around finals will take place on June 18 while apparatus finals will be held on June 20.
After going through many changes following the release of the nominative list last month, the teams are now officially set. Among those competing is 2015 European all-around champion Giulia Steingruber of Switzerland and 2012 Olympic medalists Viktoria Komova and Aliya Mustafina of Russia. A full list of competitors is below.
