LAUSANNE - The 2015 FIG Rhythmic Gymnastics World Cup series ended in a Russian triumph.

World Cup rankings are generated by awarding gymnasts a certain number of points based on results at World Cup events. A gymnast's best four performances are taken into account, and the points added to generate a final points total that determines winners of the World Cup series. The seven-stop World Cup series debuted in Lisbon (POR) at the end of March and included competitions in Bucharest (ROU), Pesaro (ITA), Tashkent (UZB), Budapest (HUN), Sofia (BUL) and finally Kazan (RUS).

Kazan Universiade Champion Mamun, solidified her status as the season's top gymnast in World Cup competition with the Hoop, Ball, Clubs and Ribbon after sweeping the gold medals again in Kazan.

Kudryavtseva and Mamun, who normally finish 1-2 in international competition, are expected to renew their rivalry at the World Championships in Stuttgart (GER) September 7-13. Mamun, meanwhile, has also twice swept World Cup competitions this season, albeit both times when Kudryavtseva was not in the field.
