She described her miscalculation in the clubs routine "It all happened very quickly and I didn’t manage to find a way to solve the mistake. That’s why I lost the club. I’ve been competing for 13 years, so of course this has happened before. At the end of the routine, I realised I was not going to win the gold medal. That's why emotionally I was a little bit more relaxed and I was competing for myself, my coach and the spectators. I wanted to give them a good performance”. In the last rotation, she came back with a strong ribbon routine where she scored 19.250. But the serious mistake in her clubs was enough to take her out of contention for the gold, Kudryavtseva won the silver medal with a total of 75.608 points, teammate Margarita Mamun won the gold medal with a total of 76.483 points.
