Italy, Canada make Olympics in women’s gymnastics



LONDON (AP) — Italy has joined Canada in qualifying for women’s gymnastics at this summer’s London Olympics.

The top four teams at the test event at the O2 Arena earn the remaining spots at the London Games. Italy and Canada have posted the highest scores so far Wednesday, with only Brazil and South Korea still to compete.

France and Belgium are still in the running for London, while Spain and the Netherlands have been eliminated from contention.

The United States, Russia, China, Romania, Japan, Australia, Germany and Britain already have earned spots in the 12-team Olympic field, qualifying at last fall’s world gymnastics championships.
