After Evgenia Kanaeva the olympic title has been herited by Margarita Mamun, the bengal tiger showed her claws and grabbed the gold medal after an intense All Around competition.
Margarita conquered the gold by being the most stable performer today together with bronze medalist Anna Rizatdinova (UKR).
While olympic favorite Yana Kudryavtseva saw her gold medal rolling away together with her club when she lost it during the last throw of her routine.
After 4 years of fight with her nerves Margarita won the most important competition of her life by taking the crown to the no more unbeattable Kudryavtseva. Applauses to Rizatdinova for delighting the audience with astonishing performances!
Bitter taste for Yeon Jae Son (KOR), who for the second time in her career has touched the podium but ended 4th after Rizatdinova.
Melitina Staniouta (BLR) was the other disappointed, fighting for the bronze medal till the clubs routine when she had many mistakes.
Memorable competition for the newcomers: Galkina, Vladinova, Durunda and Moustafaeva. Showing many progress and looking very promising for the year to come! While for Carolina Rodriguez (ESP) this was the last Olympics of her extraordinary career after more than 16 years always at international level, Gracias Carolina!
