They might be just an 'experimental pair' with only a week's training behind them, but Russian trampoline gymnasts Yana Pavlova and Anna Kornetskaya won gold in the synchronised final by almost two points over silver medallists Marine Jurbert and Joelle Vallez of France.

"We started preparing for this just one week before the European Games," Kornetskaya said. "We are an experimental pair. Everything went great today."

Pavlova and Kornetskaya, who qualified in third place for the final, performed a clean routine with difficult skills to finish with a score of 46.400.

Jurbert and Vallez finished on 44.600, while Portuguese pair Ana Rente and Beatriz Martins took the bronze (44.500).

Pavlova's success brought up her second gold medal on the final day of the Baku 2015 Gymnastics competition, as she also finished first in the individual competition.

"I expected to win gold and I did it," Pavlova said after her individual final.

The Russian trampoline gymnast performed a solid routine to finish ahead of British silver medallist Katherine Driscoll and 2014 European champion Hanna Harchonak of Belarus.
