World champion Aliya Mustafina (Russia) dominated the women's qualification at the European championships, which began Wednesday in Berlin.

Competing in the third of four qualification sessions, Mustafina outscored teammate Anna Dementyeva by nearly 3 points: 59.750-56.900. She qualified third to the final on vault (using a safe double-twisting Yurchenko as her first attempt), first on uneven bars, first on balance beam and second on floor exercise.

Dementyeva, competing in the first session Wednesday morning, hit four events cleanly to qualify second to the all-around and balance beam finals (14.825). Dementyeva placed fifth on both uneven bars and balance beam but was bumped from the finals by the two-per-country rule.

Russian head coach Alexander Alexandrov was pleased with his team, which qualified the maximum number of gymnasts to finals.

"I think we had a good performance today," he told the Russian press. "Of course, there were some shortcomings, but sport is sport, so it wasn't that everything came out perfect. Other athletes also erred. In some places we had fewer errors, but the main task today was to get to the finals. Now we have to win medals, so it will be much, much harder."

If she nails the rest of her routines in Berlin, the 16-year-old Mustafina could sweep all five gold medals. The last gymnast to accomplish this feat was Belarusian legend Svetlana Boginskaya, who won five golds at the 1990 Europeans in Athens.

"The competition for apparatus is much stronger," Alexandrov said. "The Romanian women are strong, there are two strong Swiss who vault well, and Briton Beth Tweddle is here. I think Tweddle will fight for the gold medal. Everything starts from the beginning."

Romanian Diana Chelaru was third, .55 behind Dementyeva, and qualified third to the floor exercise final as well.

Chelaru's teammates Sandra Izbasa and Ana Porgras had mixed fortunes Wednesday. Izbasa, the 2008 Olympic champion on floor exercise, took the high score on floor exercise and qualified second to the vault final. Porgras competed two events only and failed to make the finals, slipping off beam on a layout stepout and losing her rhythm on uneven bars.

Host Germany saw success from Elizabeth Seitz, who qualified fourth to the all-around, seventh to the vault and fourth to the uneven bars finals. Veteran teammate Oksana Chusovitina qualified fifth to the vault final and Kim Bui had the sixth-best score on uneven bars.

Switzerland's Giulia Steingruber qualified first on vault with a layout Rudi and full-twisting Tsukahara.

Competition continues Thursday at Max-Schmeling-Halle with the men's qualification.
