Rodionova’s teammates Aliya Mustafina and Daria Spiridonova outscored her. Mustafina and Spiridonova  scored 15.100 and 14.900 respectively, while Rodionova scored  14.866, just missing out on final by only 0.034.

Britian’s Rebecca Downie and Rebecca Tunney who secured first and 3rd place respectively topped Harrold’s score.

Romania’s Larisa Iordache made the apparatus final despite being her weakest event.

Germany had two gymnasts qualified to the finalSophie Scheder and Kim Bui. In last place, came Roxana Popa of Spain.

Sweden Jonna Adlerteg who won the bars silver medal at last year’s European championships, failed to qualify and finished in 11th place.
