In the elite women’s division, the question coming into the last day of competition was which Emma would win. Swedish athlete Emma Tall began the last day with less than 30 points ahead of Irish Emma McQuaid.
When McQuaid closed the gap after winning the penultimate event, it all came down to the very last workout. However, Emma Tall showed consistency, grabbed 2nd place and ultimately finished ahead of McQuaid by 27 points. Third-placed Manon Angonese, from Belgium, almost snatched the 2nd place by surprise after winning the last event but stayed 4 points behind McQuaid.
- Emma Tall – 711 points
- Emma McQuaid – 684 points
- Manon Angonese – 680 points

In the elite men’s division, the run for the top spot on the podium was less dramatic. Lazar Dukic had previously won two events and was almost certain to guarantee his gold medal. Event a 19th placement at the “True Form Fitness” event didn’t shake up the leaderboard.
The biggest fight was between the 2nd through 6th placement. Spanish athlete Aniol Ekai turned things around at the last event by winning it, which secured him 2nd place overall. David Shorunke, from the U.K., finished that event 8th and had to contend with 3rd place in the finalised leaderboard merely 3 points behind Ekai.
