The 22nd European Artistic Gymnastics Championships took place in Saint Petersburg, Russia in 1998.

Format of Competition

No compulsory routines were performed in artistic gymnastics at the 1998 European Championships. Instead, all participating gymnasts, including those who were not part of a team, participated in a qualification round. The results of this competition determined which teams and individuals participated in the remaining competitions, which included:

  • The team competition, in which the six highest scoring teams from qualifications competed. Each team of six gymnasts could have up to four gymnasts perform on each apparatus, and only the three highest scores counted toward the team total.
  • The all-around competition, in which the thirty-six highest scoring individuals in the all-around competed. Each country was limited to three gymnasts in the all-around final.
  • The event finals, in which the eight highest scoring individuals on each apparatus competed. Each country was limited to two gymnasts in each apparatus final.
