Euros Qualification Results

Qualifications for the European Championships have concluded, at least for the women. 

Russia is sans Aliya Mustafina for the first time in five years and Romania is sans Larisa Iordache for the first time since 2012. Personally, I think this is a good thing for both teams. Both teams have become so reliant on each of their stars, that they aren't really growing. 

Russia saw the return of Ksenia Afanasyeva who qualified in second to floor finals. Maria Kharenkova qualified first to the all-around final, she's also qualified first to beam finals

Good news for Great Britain, they've qualified at least two athletes to every final.  They now have double trouble with sister duo, Beckie and Ellie Downie. Both have qualified for uneven bars and Beckie has also qualified for beam finals.

Katelyn Ohashi Sets the Rumors Straight

American Cup winner Katelyn Ohashi has been out of competition for a while due to injuries.

Since she won the American Cup in March, she's been largely absent from the USA Gymnastics scene. In April, she turned down international assignments at the City of Jesolo Cup because she was recovering from shoulder surgery. She was absent from the national championships in August, presumably for the same reason.
