After the only 19-year-old defending champion Alexander KARTSEV had already fought an exciting duel with ex-world champion Artur DALALOYAN in the first all-around qualifying, and initially narrowly defeated with 85.198 to 85.331 points, he followed his opponent in the all-around final with 83.664 : 82.298 who had to cope with a fall on the parallel bars and so he successfully defended his championship title. The former national champion of the years 2014 and 2015 and current third in the preliminary round, David BELJAVSKI, successfully maintained this place in front of the ex-champion from 2013, Nikita Ignatjev, who this time missed the podium in fourth, followed by Ivan Kuljak.
