In the Women’s Trophy, Berta Abellán surprised by defeating the nine-time world champion, Emma Bristow. Abellán secured first place after conceding only four points and completing the five zones, while Bristow finished second due to a fiasco in the third zone. The Italian Andrea Sofia Rabino completed the podium.
The competition featured six zones, with Busto initially leading after the first zone. However, both Busto and Marcelli added failures in the next four areas, allowing Bou to take advantage and secure the win with a zero in the fourth zone.
