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.
