In the women's final event 1st and 2nd place were locked up. The drama was in the contest for the 3rd spot on the podium. Going into the event, "Fran," Kristen Clever was 4 points behind Talayna Fortunato. Whovever finished ahead of the other would win 3rd. In a neck and neck race from start to finish, Fortunato won by a nose, and collapsed to the floor.
