Third up was Elena Eremina with a full twisting double back, Memmel, 2.5 twist into punch front, double tuck. Overall her difficulty was low, only 5.000 meaning Eremina would finish last with a score of 13.466.

Fourth up was Eythora Thorsdottir who is re-known for her beautiful floor work, and who opened with a triple twist into punch front that went out of bounds with one foot for a neutral 0.1 deduction, double tuck tiny step back, she performed solidly her double L-turn, into double turn, into Memmel into illusion turn, 2.5 twist for her last tumble for a high 13.700 that placed her in a provisional first place.

Next up was Downie’s teammate Claudia Fragapane who opened with a stuck full twisting double layout, unfortunately she went out of bounds with both feet on her double Arabian, her third pass a double layout to wolf jump and a double pike to finish. Despite the massive difficulty the out of bounds neutral deduction of 0.3 was enough to leave her out of podium as she missed bronze by a difference of only 0.167 with a 13.533.

The last up on Floor was Kim Bui who performed beautifully with a double layout, a double tuck, 2.5 twist to punch front and double pike to finish for a fourth place with a 13.566.
