Rotation 1:

Romania started like the champions they are on vault, nailing their various Yurchenkos for a team total of 37,061.
When Andreea Raducan was announced, she was cheered loudly by the crowd.

Rotation 2:

Bars have long been a Romanian weakness and the gymnasts did little to correct this impression this evening. First up, Carmen Ionescu fell twice. She was followed by Silvia Stroescu, Sabina Cojocar, Andreea Raducan and Loredana Boboc none of whom were able score above nine points. While they avoided huge breaks, their routines looked somewhat laboured.

Rotation 3:

Romania lived up to its reputation on beam with excellent routines from Ionescu, Stroescu, Cojocar and Raducan. Raducan stuck her double pike dismount cold as well as her ff-full-twisting back tuck combination.
Cojocar and Ionescu also threw full-twisting back tucks and Stroescu tumbled a ff-ff-Onodi. The last gymnast up, Loredana Boboc couldn’t match her team mates and wobbled through her routine.

Rotation 4:

Romania went into the lead with high difficulty and solid tumbles on floor. Huge cheers and chants of “Romania, Romania” errupted after Raducan’s and Cojocar’s routines. Most of the gymnasts opted for similar tumbles, either opening with a double layout or a full-in. The team’s new choreography was well received by the crowd. 
Raducan went into the lead on floor with a 9,425 and is now second in the individual standings.
