Top six girls from last year moved to the next class but Daniela Koreckova (Slovakia) and Szelina Vaczkó (Hungary) who placed just out of the finals last year met with top girls from previous up to 7 years category: Uliana Tesova and Nika Andreeva (both of Russia). Moreover, this group was joined by up to 7 years class top competitors from 2014 Worlds, who didn’t come last year: Anhelina Pylypenko and Dariia Korniienko (both of Ukraine) as well as Ditte Mersich (Hungary).
In this kettle, the best scores were given to Korniienko, who won all rounds, far ahead of Tesova and Koreckova. Pylypenko, Vaczkó and Mersich entered the finals but placed out of the medal zone. The sport quality of competitors were almost equal, so they were changing places from round to round and there were two ties in the final score: Tesova and Koreckova (62:62) in the battle for the silver medal as well as Pylypenko and Vaczkó (79:79) fighting for 4th place. Altogether 21 girls met in this class.
