Russian Women Rule

5:58 AM

2It's official.... the Russian women have reigned supreme during the Women's Team Final at the Ahoy Arena in Rotterdam. Funnily enough this is the first time that the Russians have taken out the World Championship honour at a team level. A hiccup on the Uneven Bars (3 girls counted falls) could have derailed their plans but ultimately the girls' triumph shows how far they have come. Well done to all coaches, gymnasts and support teams of each of the nations in the final!

  1. Russia 175.397
  2. United States of America 175.196
  3. China 174.781
  4. Romania 173.096
  5. Japan 169.897
  6. Australia 168.629
  7. Great Britain 166.828
