Russian Olympian Anastasia Grishina led qualification on uneven bars with 14.900, topping 2012 Junior European bars champion Sophie Scheder (Germany) and Ida Gustafsson (Sweden).

American Cup champion Jake Dalton was the top qualifier on men's floor exercise, edging 2010 world champion Eleftherios Kosmidis of Greece, 15.300-15.225. Germany's Matthias Fahrig qualified third.

Croatia's Filip Ude (15.100) led a Balkan sweep of the top three qualifiers on pommel horse. Croatian teammate Robert Seligman (14.950) was second over Slovenia's Sašo Bertoncelj (14.850).
