European Championships Podium Training

There are a few notes about podium training today on The All Around Blog. It was reported that Sandra Izabasa didn't train vault or uneven bars so I doubt she will be competing all around and also on the Fan Gymnastics Romanian blog it was posted that Diana Chelaru will compete the all around with Tamirjan.
Exciting news that Semenova may debut a DLO on floor but fell during podium training. The reporter noted that Semenova and Afanaseyeva looked good so hopefully they will both hit in finals!
Vanessa Ferrari was selected for the Italian team at the last minute and it seems like she is not quite ready from the comments and there is no news as to whether she will compete all around.
Another comment was that "Switzerland made good impression with solid routines." so this sounds good for Ariella Kaeslin and the vault final and maybe all around?
BAD NEWS - especially to me and The Netherlands, Lieke Wevers has had to withdraw due to a knee injury I was looking forward to her (hopefully) making the bars and maybe beam finals but that will not happen now so I wish her a speedy recovery.
The comment that stood out to me was "Women's Podium Training finished today in Milan without brilliance. Falls were common rather than isolated and the general skills level was not impressive," maybe the new code isnt quite doing its job improving form and removing falls I just hope the actual competition is better.
