In the men’s competition, Russia dominated over Ukraine, winning 3-0 (25-18, 25-14, 25-17) with a very strong team effort, highlighted by the tournament MVP Viktor Mikenin.

The Russian women also played Ukraine in the final, and also won 3-0 (25-11, 25-14, 25-10) in a dominating performance.  The tournament-long strong play of Iuliia Mednikova was again a factor in the Gold Medal match, in which she scored 16 points.  Her performance earned her the MVP award for the competition.

The Bronze medals went to Bosnia and Herzegovina for the men, and to the Netherlands for the women.
