Team final event: Russia.


Russian flag.
The Russian team confirmed her status during the team final, with Anna Pavlova (Born 1987), Ksenia Semenova (1992), Ksenia Afanaseva (1991), Svetlana Klyukina (1989) and the smiling substitute Karina Myashnikova (1991). So a good mix of experience and youth!
 
Best performance on Bars, 2nd one on Vault, third one on Beam, 4th one on Floor with the Afanaseva fall during her Floor routine, some wobbles for Anna Pavlova during her Beam routine and finally the Russian team could not fully gain the short distance from the European Champion, Romania, but got a deserved and brilliant silver medal.
 
Anna Pavlova: born September 6th 1987.
Svetlana Klyukina: born February 10th 1989.
Karina Myashnikova born September 2nd 1991.
Ksenia Afanaseva: born September 13th 1991
