BAKU, AZE (July 24, 2016) –Patricia Bezzoubenko of Toronto, ON had her best performance of the season at the World Cup in Baku, Azerbaijan this weekend qualifying for the finals in clubs and finishing 12th in the all-around with a score of 70.100.
Bezzoubenko’s best score of the competition was in her clubs routine where she scored 17.750, putting her in eighth place and qualifying her for the finals. In the final, Bezzoubenko delivered a strong routine and finished in sixth place matching her preliminary score of 17.750.
