Stacy and Noémie are used to those big events, as they both participated in the Junior European Championships last year. Nevertheless, competing in a big arena can still be quite impressive. But our girls managed to keep their head cool and compete great routines.
Noémie was the first of the two to go. She performed a Jaeger release, a Shaposhnikova and a double tuck with a full twist dismount. She scored 13.100.
Stacy was the very last gymnast to present herself in front of the judges. With a good routine and a double piked dismount, she also scored 13.100.
Our Belgians got separated in the ranking based on their execution score. Stacy placed 7th and Noémie 8th.
The gold went to Russia's Vladislava Urazova (14.433), ahead of all-around world champion Viktoriia Listunova (14.200) and China's Wei Xiaoyuan (13.800).
