Rebecca Downie was seen as Derwael’s main rival contender and received an impressive 15.000 score for her performance. Now Derwael couldn’t allow herself to make a single mistake. And so it occurred. Derwael delivered a faultless performance and was rewarded with a top score: 15,233. The silver was for Downie, the bronze for Lee.
Afterwards Derwael told reporters: “There’s no getting used to this. It always feels like the first time.”
