Date: 28. Mai 2018

The women’s doubles were clearly dominated by the teams from Russia and Ukraine.


They divided the semi-finals among each other and played against their own country’s team.

In the Ukrainian match Olena Boltovnina/Kateryna Kovalchuk auf Daryna Velychko/Alla Diachenko competed, in the Russian Dina Partis/Daria Makarova against Nadezda Korablinova/Olga Lotina. The latter had already won the title in the single competition.


In the Ukrainian-Russian final Boltovnina/Kovalchuk played against Korablinova/Lotina.

Although Lotina’s performance wasn’t as convincing as it was in the single competition, in combination with Korablinova it was sufficient for a clear victory.


420 to 370 the result for the Russian team and second gold medal for Russia.
