Brazil will be represented by a women’s artistic gymnastics team at their home Olympics after claiming one of four final berths at the Rio 2016 test event.

The Brazilian team were hoping to qualify for the third straight Games, having appeared at both Beijing 2008 and London 2012, and delivered an impressive display across the four apparatus at the Rio Olympic Arena.

Flavia Saraiva, who won three medals at the Nanjing 2014 Youth Olympic Games, was among their star performers with the 16-year-old top scoring on the beam and floor, as she was awarded total of 14.566 and 14.150 respectively for the two disciplines.

Rebeca Andrade, Jade Barbosa, Daniele Hypolito, Lorrane Oliveira and Carolyne Pedro also produced strong performances to take the Brazilian team closer to claiming an Olympic berth.

Their six-member team ended with a final tally of 226.477 points, which proved more than enough to top the final standings.

Germany were able to claim the second spot on offer at the Games after ending on 223.977 points, while Belgium completed the top three positions by securing 221.438.

The fourth and final Olympic berth was claimed by France, who finished with a final score of 220.869 points.

There was a major surprise when Romania found themselves languishing in seventh place out of the eight teams in competition, with each nation having finished between 9th and 16th at last year’s World Championships.

The result meant that the Romanian team would not feature in the team competition at Rio 2016, with only a sole female gymnast due to represent the country, who have won an artistic gymnastics medal at every Games since 1976.

India’s Dipa Karmakar, though, became the first female gymnast from her nation to qualify for the Olympic Games after scoring 52.698 in the individual qualifying.

Guatemala’s Ana Sofia Gomez Porras and Venezuela’s Jessica Lopez, were also among the individual qualifiers for Rio 2016.

Trampoline competition is scheduled to take place on Tuesday (April 19), with rhythmic gymnastics individual events set to take place on April 21.

The rhythmic gymnastics group event competition will bring the test event to a close on April 22.
