For the juniors, the qualification round also served as the team final and all-around final. Each team of five gymnasts could only have three gymnasts perform on each apparatus, and all three scores counted toward the team total.

Notable Moments

  • Italy won their first ever junior team gold medal. This also marks the first time since 1998 that Russia did not win junior team gold.
  • Belgium qualified third into the senior team final but pulled out, as they had an injured gymnast and didn't want the rest of the team to tire out before the World Championships. Italy took their spot and finished sixth.
  • France earned their highest placement in a European team final: second.
  • The Netherlands won their first European team medal since 2000.
  • In the junior floor exercise final, Great Britain's Amelie Morgan tied for the bronze with Romania's Antonia Duta and Russia's Vladislava Urazova. However, a tie breaker was induced and the bronze went to Morgan.
  • Boglarka Devai won Hungary their first European gold medal in 20 years.
