Germany handily defeated France, 174.25-167.95. The mixed team, which also included Germany's Leah Griesser, claimed third (166.80) over a four-gymnast squad from Switzerland (165.50).

The Germans had the top score on all events but floor exercise, where the mixed team had the best total. Germany put up its strongest score on uneven bars, led by Elisabeth Seitz with 15.30, Sophie Scheder with 15.25 and Kim Bui with 14.80.

Tabea Alt led the scoring on balance beam with 14.80, followed by teammate Pauline Schäfer with 14.70.

"We have shown a very good performance and are well on our way – I am very satisfied," said German head coach Ulla Koch "We had to fight this week with colds, and Tabea has some knee problems. I think we can do even better gymnastics."

The French women also had their strongest result on uneven bars, with Louise Vanhille scoring 14.90 and Loan His 14.65.

Steingruber, who will compete at the Olympic Games as an individual for Switzerland, won the all-around (58.05) over Schäfer (57.30) and Seitz (57.15). Steingruber had the highest scores of the day on vault (15.35) and floor exercise (14.75).

Ponor competed three events, scoring 14.70 on vault and floor exercise and 14.50 on balance beam. Teammate Iordache finished ninth all-around with her best score of 14.20 coming on balance beam. Ponor is set to compete in her third Olympic Games next month in Rio de Janeiro, where she has been selected to carry Romania's flag at the Opening Ceremonies. Iordache, who missed several months of training with a serious hand injury, will travel to Brazil as the alternate for Romania, which did not qualify a full team this year.
