Level of participation and performance was moderate. The proximity of other important athletics competitions like Asian Championships, South American Championships, Central American and Caribbean Championships and European U23 Championships caused many high-profile student-athletes to skip the event. The host nation, Russia, however, fielded most of its top athletes which resulted in three Universiade records and first place on the medal table with a huge lead over the second nation, South Africa.
In 18 May, 2017,the rankings of the Women’s Heptathlon and 1,500m were updated further to the suspension of two Russian female athletes by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) and the medal table is changed.:
|2||South Africa (RSA)||5||2||4||11|
|4||United States (USA)||4||1||0||5|
|12||Virgin Islands (ISV)||1||0||0||1|
