Sara Moreno Lopez and Vicente Lli Lloris won the gold medal in the mixed pair final in Aerobic Gymnastics with 21.150 points at the National Gymnastics Arena on Sunday.

Michela Castoldi and Davide Donati of Italy won the silver with 21.050, and Dukhik Dzhanazian and Denis Solovev of Russia won the bronze with 20.500.

The Spanish pair earned the highest artistry and execution scores of the final, and Lli Lloris said: "We had prepared to show our artistic skills since the first day. In the final, we demonstrated our skills as we wanted."

In the group final, Hungary surprised themselves – and top qualifiers Romania – to earn gold with 21.144 points. Romania took silver with 21.094, and Spain finished third with 20.933.

Dora Hegyi of Hungary said artistic superiority gave her group the advantage.

"We were not expecting this result," she said. "We did everything, like all the difficulties, very high execution points, and really, really high artistry points. So we just hoped that Romania couldn't beat us."
