Great Britain shine in TeamGym European Championships qualification

Great Britain produce a spate of stellar performances as all six teams qualify for the finals of the 13th TeamGym European Championships in Portugal.

Great Britain are poised to take home a haul of medals at the 13th TeamGym European Championships after two days of stellar qualification performances in Guimaraes.

With top Nordic nations Denmark and Norway not making the journey to Portugal, all six GB teams qualified for the finals as they jostled with the likes of Sweden and Iceland for the top spots.

At junior level, GB's mixed team finished atop the pile with a team total of 50.225 - 0.325 clear of second-placed Sweden - while the junior boys and junior girls both took second in their categories behind the Swedes.

The junior boys team - who won GB's only medal to date at the Europeans back in 2016 - are guaranteed a podium finish as one of three teams competing in Friday's final.

In the senior category, GB's mixed team found themselves second on the leaderboard - nearly three marks adrift of Sweden - while the senior women placed third behind Sweden and Iceland.

The GB senior men were unable to join their compatriots in the top three, as they rounded off the second day of qualifying by finishing fourth behind Sweden, Iceland and Portugal.

The junior finals at the TeamGym European Championships commence on Friday before the senior groups lock horns for medals on Saturday.
