Italy's Erika Fasana, who qualified in seventh place on floor exercise in Glasgow, has withdrawn from the event's final. 

The reason behind her withdrawal is that she suffered an elbow injury, a stress fracture tibia, on vault during team final warm ups. As a result, she did not compete on uneven bars in the team final and only contributed on vault and floor exercise to Italy's 7th place finish.

Shang Chunsong of China, who is the first reserve on the event, will replace the Italian gymnast.

Fasana was the only Italian gymnast to qualify to an individual event final in Glasgow. Teammates Carlotta Ferlito and Tea Ugrin finished in 12th and 14th place respectively in the individual all around final.

The balance beam and floor exercise final will be held next Sunday.
