Prosport reported that Romania's Larisa Iordache has withdrawn from the upcoming European championships due to pain in her left ankle (old injury).

Earlier this year, national head coach Octavian Bellu announced that the Romanian gymnast won't be taking part in the first edition of the European games in Baku this summer in order to finish her high school exams.

As for now, two of the most strongest all arounders are out of the European championships, the second gymnast being Aliya Mustafina of Russia. At the last European all around competition, Iordache won silver behind Mustafina.

Andreea Munteanu will replace Iordache. Andreea Iridon, Laura Jurca and Diana Bulimar have already been selected to represent Romania at the competition.

The European games will be held from April 13-19, in Montpellier, France.  It will include only individual competitions.
