Roster Released for European Championships
(9 votes, average 4.56 out of 5)

The official roster for the upcoming European Championships features 237 gymnasts who will vie for 12 titles in Milan.

The competition for senior individual all-around and apparatus will be held April 2-5 at Milan's Mediolanum Forum.

The roster of 150 male gymnasts and 87 female gymnasts includes 2008 Olympic medalists Jordan Jovtchev (Bulgaria), Thomas Bouhail and Benoît Caranobe (France), Fabian Hambüchen (Germany), Louis Smith (Great Britain), Sandra Izbasa (Romania), Anton Golotsutskov (Russia) and Alexander Vorobyov (Ukraine).

Noticably absent, however, are the reigning all-around champions from the 2007 Europeans in Amsterdam. Italy's own Vanessa Ferrari and Russia's Maxim Devyatovsky will be unable to defend their titles after not making their country's respective lineups.

The initial roster includes eight of the 10 apparatus champions from 2008.

Five of the six event champions from the 2008 men's Europeans in Lausanne are on the roster for Milan: Golotsutskov (floor exercise), Hungary's Krisztian Berki (pommel horse), Slovenia's Mitja Petkovsek (parallel bars) and Hambüchen (high bar).

Berki, Petkovsek and Hambüchen also won the same events at the 2007 Europeans in Amsterdam.

Russia's Ksenia Semyonova (uneven bars and balance beam) and Izbasa (floor exercise) will attempt to defend their titles from the 2008 women's Europeans in Clermont-Ferrand, France.

Absent from Milan will be both 2008 vault champions: Oksana Chusovitina (Germany) and Leszek Blanik (Poland).

The lineup also includes 2008 Junior European Championships gold medalists Daniel Keatings (Great Britain) and Youna Dufournet (France).

The 2009 European Championships kick off April 1 with the opening ceremonies. Qualification will be held April 2 (women) and April 3 (men). Finals will be April 4 (all-around) and April 5 (apparatus).
