Also at the  World Cup-Season start of rythmic gymnastics, the leading ambition of the gymnastics nation Russia is more than pressing:

Three Bronze medals were left for Belarus' Melitina Staniouta (rope, band) and Ljubow Chakashyna (ball), one went to Silvia Miteva from Bulgaria.
Austrias Caroline Weber was 7th in the band final.
Also in the group finals the Russian formation could not be beaten ...
