New Zealander Sally Johnston took home the gold with a total of 620.7 points, closely followed by South Africa's Esmari van Reenen at 620.1, who took silver. Local girl Jen Mcintosh clinched the bronze with a tally of 619.5 points.

India's Meena, who was placed second at one stage, totalled 615.3 points while Lajja finished with 612.3.
