It was the good old landscape once more: Russia claimed all but one title, they didn’t enter the free combination so that gold went to Ukraine. The latter ones grabbed almost all silvers in the traditional events while Italy collected all bronzes. The only switch came in the women’s solo free final where Linda Cerruti was placed ahead of YelizaveteYakhno. The star of the competition was Svetlana Kolesnichenko once more, she warned four titles – both solo and duet golds.
The mixed events also brought full Russian success, here the Italians finished runner-up and Spain got the bronze medals – so altogether four nations could make the podium.
