Romania's Senior Women's team has earned themselves the 2012 European Championships Senior Team Title. Yes I know, a huge amount of capitals in the one sentence. Russia came second with Italy improving from the Qualifications to take out the Bronze medal. Great Britain dropped to fourth. Highest individual scores for the team finals were: Sandra Raluca Izbasa (ROU) on Vault (15.200), Russian Aliya Mustafina on the Uneven Bars (15.833), Catalina Ponor (ROU) on Balance Beam (15.433) and Romanian Larisa Andreea Iordache on the Floor Exercise (15.033).
