Finals day at Tashkent World Cup 2017. Russian team was the most successful with 9 medals, followed by Bulgaria with 5. Arina Averina stepped out from the shadow of Dina and won the 3 finals in which she competed (hoop, ball and ribbon). Satisfying competition for Bulgarian Katrin Taseva, with 1 silver medal (clubs) and 2 bronze (all around and ball), she showed great confidence and all her scores were up to 17.000 except for ribbon (15.800). Linoy Ashram bronze medalist in hoop final, showed her full recover from the injury that paused her career since Moscow Grand Prix 2017.

Russia, Bulgaria and Ukraine shared the two podiums, leaving Belarus and Japan without medals. Unlucky competition for Belorussian girls who brought home only a bronze medal in the all around. Halkina obtained the 6th place in both clubs and ribbon finals.

Next rhythmic stop: World Cup Baku (28-30 April). Full results for groups and individuals.
