43. WOMEN's Artistic Gymnastics European Championships 2022

Since 1955, the European Gymnastics Federation, as the former European Gymnastics Union (UEG), recently renamed "EUROPEAN GYMNASTICS", held continental artistic gymnastics championships. The inaugural event for men was followed two years later by the women in Bucharest in 1957, and the 43rd European Gymnastics Championships 2022 take place now in Munich from August 11-14.
The all-around gold of these 43rd European Women's Championships went to Asia D'AMATO (< in the photo above, right) from Italy.
Fresh off the back of winning double gold in her home city at the Commonwealth Games, Alice KINSELLA (GBR) continued her fine form with a classy and professional performance with highlights coming on bars and floor. Alice scored a total of 54.132 points across the four apparatus with Asia D’Amato of Italy taking gold.
Despite a fall on the last apparatus, the uneven bars, Italy's Martina MAGGIO, saved the second medal for her country with bronze.
The best German gymnast was the 33-year-old Kim BUI, who finished an outstanding eighth at her 11th (!) European Championships and thus probably competed in her last international all-around of an extraordinary career!
ECh-Team gold went not unexpectedly to I T A L Y, who once again performed sovereignly and became European team champions for the second time after 2006 in Volos. With top scores on all 4 apparatuses they relegated GREAT BRITAIN to 2nd place. A preliminary decision in the medal fight was already made in the second rotation, when the 3 French gymnasts had to accept 4 falls (!!) on the balance beam alone and dropped back to sixth place after the third place in the preliminaries. With a fighting performance, especially on parallel bars and beam and sovereign protection until the end, the GERMAN TEAM won a team medal for the first time in the history of the European Championships with bronze!
