Dina Averina from Russia became the 2017 World All-Around champion, just ahead of her identical twin sister Arina Averina who finished with silver. Averina twins have been nearly untouchable in all over this season.
The fight for the bronze medal was between a few gymnasts, but Linoy Ashram from Israel finished third. Just a small bobble with a club, but really clean routines all over. She edged Katsiaryna Halkina’s from Belarus and Kaho Minagawa from Japan, who were close to the podium. Between the top 6 was also Laura Zeng from USA who got the highest score ever for an American Gymnast in an All-Around Final.
Longines Prize of Elegance went for Alexandra Agiurgiuculese from Italy (who finished in 8th position). Her teammate Milena Baldassarri received the Alina Kabaeva award (FIG Ambassador).
