Today, we saw the best of europe go head to head in the Junior european gymnastics championships in Brussels, Belgium. It was an exciting and no-doubt tight competition with small margin for error. 

In the team side of things, Russia prevailed with a team score of 167.330, taking the gold home. 3.299 points later, we saw the second placed team which was Italy. In the bronze medal position, Romania took it.

Great Britain lost the bronze by less than 1 mark but still gaining great experience for the girls with 4th

In all-around terms, Maria Kharenkova of Russia swooped in to 1st position with 56.132.
Italian superstar Elisa Meneghini qualified 2nd and Evgeniya Shelguynova in 3rd.
