The 38th European Women's Artistic Gymnastics Championships will be held from December 17-20 in Mersin, Turkey.[1] They were originally set for late April and early May in Paris, France, but the event was canceled during the coronavirus pandemic. It was ultimately rescheduled to take place after the men's artistic European Championships in December of 2020. The event was originally moved to Baku, Azerbaijan in June,[2] but then moved again to Mersin, Turkey in October. The all-around was not contested for the seniors. Due to the pandemic, the event was held without spectators.

Format of Competition

The competition was split into junior and senior divisions. For the seniors, all participating gymnasts, including those who were not part of a team, participated in a qualification round. The results of this competition determined which teams and individuals participated in the remaining competitions, which included:

  • The team competition, in which the six highest scoring teams from qualifications competed. Each team of five gymnasts could only have three gymnasts perform on each apparatus, and all three scores counted toward the team total.
  • The event finals, in which the eight highest scoring individuals on each apparatus competed. Each country was limited to two gymnasts in each apparatus final.

For the juniors, the qualification round also served as the team final. Each team of six gymnasts could only have three gymnasts perform on each apparatus, and all three scores counted toward the team total. The results of this competition determined which teams and individuals participated in the remaining competitions, which included:

  • The all-around competition, in which only the twenty-four highest scoring individuals in the all-around competed. Each country was limited to only two gymnasts in the all-around final.
  • The event finals, in which the eight highest scoring individuals on each apparatus competed. Each country was limited to two gymnasts in each apparatus final.
