MAG European Floor Champion 2012?


With the  Men’s Junior and Senior Europeans fast approaching, it’s time to look at the medal contenders for each apparatus.

Let’s take a look at who made the floor final at the 2011 European Championships and who has a shot at the 2012 title:

    1. Flavius Koczi (ROM) 15.500
    2. Alexander Shatilov (ISR) 15.400
    3. Anton Golotsutskov (RUS) 15.325
    4. Kristian Thomas (GBR) & Thomas Bouhail (FRA) 15.300
    5. Denis Ablyazin (RUS) 15.250
    6. Daniel Purvis (GBR) 14.400
    7. Philipp Boy (GER) 14.275

Just missing qualification for the floor final last year was the Greek 2010 World Floor Champion Eleftherios Kosmidis who could be in contention for a medal this year. Great Britain could possibly have three gymnasts in contention for a spot in the floor final, if the two per country rule didn’t apply, Daniel Purvis should make the final as could Max Whitlock and Kristian Thomas. Ireland’s Kieran Behan has been working some impressive upgrades which could see him in the final. Germany also have some great floor workers but only 2010 European bronze medalist Marcel Nguyen will compete at this years competition. Of course 2011’s silver medalist Alexander Shatilov cannot be forgotten nor can Romania’s Flavius Koczi. Europe has a whole host of  excellent floor workers who could potentially step foot on the Olympic Podium in London this summer. With so many gymnasts excelling on floor, it is hard to pin point the 3 gymnasts who will make it to the podium.

What do you think? Who will be our 2012 European Floor Champion?
