Surprises: weak showing by German team advancing only as 7th to team final and only Hambuechen on high bar in event finals.

Strong performance by Dutch team. First time they advance to team finals. Also qualified to vault, parallel bars and high bar event finals.

Biggest surprise 2 Armenians in a very strong rings final!

@LEEWOOLLS:

GBR juniors would have qualified for the Senior Team final

Epke qualified to the H Bar final 0.7 ahead of 2nd place Hambuchen.

Finalists often up their difficulty to try to get on the podium, however.
