Diana Bulimar Not Qualifying To Any Event Final

Romania's Diana Bulimar who went to Montpellier as the most experienced Romanian gymnast, failed to make any event final.

She had a low beam D score (5.5) and wobbles here and there.

and a fall on floor exercise.

Remember that she is coming out from two consecutive knee injuries. On the bright side, she is going to be seen in the all around final, although we can't have high expectation on her making the podium.

Eythora Thorsdottir Not Making Event Finals

She is a rising fan favorite. Fans had huge desire to see her in beam and floor finals, but unfortunately she did not make either finals.

She had a very beautiful floor choreo,

but went out of bounds on her triple full. 

She tied with Romania's Andreea Munteanu in eighth place but lost the tie due having the lower E score. 

On beam, she lost some of her connections. She scored a 13.8.

Nevertheless, she qualified in seventh place to the all around final.

Romania's Andreea Iridon Falling On Bars

Iridon is considered to be Romania's biggest hope on uneven bars but her performance in the qualification was disheartening.

She had a fall on the simplest skill on the event,

and another on her release.

On beam, she is first reserve.

Russia's Daria Spiridonova Taking A Very Easy Fall On Her Dismount.

Dasha is really beautiful to watch on beam but she seems to make a habit of falling off the event.  She had an incredibly easy fall on her dismount, you do not need to be an expert to know that she could have saved it.
