In her first major competition as a senior,  Jade Vansteenkiste was the very first gymnast to compete on floor exercise. She scored 13.133 for her routine that included a triple twist and lots of jungle themes. She moved on to the vault were she scored 13.500 for her full twisting Yurchenko. She kept the head cool on bars with a solid routine (12.733). She finished her competition on beam and that's where the nerves hit her. She fell twice and scored 10.366. She finished 27th in the all-around standings with 49.732 but nevertheless qualified, thanks to the two-per-country rule. She also qualified for the floor final in 5th position !

Fien and Maellyse started their qualifications on beam. Maellyse was really solid until she fell on her switch ring leap (11.366). Fien showed a solid routine including a free carthweel connected to a layout step out. She scored 12.900. Maellyse came back strong on floor and got 12.233. Fien impressed with her neat choreography and clean execution. She scored 12.866. Maellyse showed a clean full twisting Yurchenko for 13.400.
