Romanians Catalina Ponor (balance beam) and Diana Bulimar (floor exercise) each led qualification on one event to Sunday's finals. Ponor skipped floor exercise, but Bulimar qualified second behind her teammate to balance ebam

Dutch gymnast Céline van Gerner, who won uneven bars and balance beam at last week's Challenger Cup in Maribor, qualified first on uneven bars. Compatriot Epke Zonderland took the top spot on men's high bar.

Other top qualifiers were Mexico's Alexa Moreno (women's vault), Greece's Eleftherios Kosmidis (men's floor exercise), Australia's Prashanth Sellathurai (pommel horse), Brazil's Arthur Zanetti (still rings) and Slovenia's Mitja Petkovsek.

Internet Explorer 7 makes surfing the web fundamentally safer by offering greater protection against viruses, spyware, and other online risks.
