RG WCh 2015

All-around Final & Olympic Qualification

The individual events of the 34th Worlds of Rhythmic Gymnastics 2015 in Stuttgart finished with the total triumph of the Russian gymnastics nation:
The Queen of Stuttgart, Yana KUDRYAVTSEVA won her third all-around title in a line and altogether four more titles here in the Porsche Arena of Stuttgart! Not only the all-around silver medal went to her compatriot Margarita MAMUN, but all the other silver medals too. So Russia won the maximum of medals in a sovereign manner .....! After a strong fight and with her last exercise with the ribbon Melitina STANIOUTA came on bronze place, because Ganna Rizatdinova started with mistakes in her first routine (clubs) and ranked on 5th place, behind the young Salome Pazhava from Georgia, who surprised with an phantastic fourth place, followed by Marina Durunda (AZE),  Neta Rivkin (ISR) and Laura Yiha Zeng from USA .......

Veteran Melitina Staniouta (BLR), already a bronze medallist with the Ball in Stuttgart, allowed the apparatus to slip out of her hands early Friday night but recovered well enough to finish with a second bronze in the All-around (72.132). The usually collected Kudryavtseva pumped her fists and bowed to the crowd following her routine, knowing she had secured the title. Kudryavtseva has been nursing a slight leg injury in Stuttgart and opted not to compete for the World title with the Hoop, which in her absence was won by Mamun. On a night where Olympic qualification berths were at stake, few among the 24 All-around finalists managed four clean routines.
Reigning World bronze medallist Ganna Rizatdinova watched her chances of a fifth medal at this Championships vanish after she failed to catch her Clubs out of bounds at the end of her first routine of the night.
Son Yeon Jae (KOR), another pre-competition favorite, made several errors during her Ribbon routine and finished 11th overall.
