Never to be overlooked in a rhythmic competition, Russia took the gold all-around place due to Aleksandra Soldatova’s clean routines. This first-place finish means that they won first all-around in four out of five WCC competitions this series. Soldatova also took bronze in ball. 

Belarus had a good meet as well, placing in both the individual all-around and group competitions. The team took third as a group after placing first in 4 clubs 3 hoops and third in 5 balls, and it took third place all-around thanks to Alina Harnasko. Harnasko also placed third in hoop. Harnasko’s teammate Anastasiia Salos stepped into the spotlight for the first time in awhile to take second in hoop and third in clubs.

Japan also did well in Portimão, placing second in group after a second-place finish in 5 balls and third-place finish in 4 clubs, 3 hoops.
