They were awarded 4.90 for their quality of movement and 4.50 for their overall performance.

They shared the medal with Indonesia's trio of Cindy Sutanto, Felicia Alveruna Monindra and Irmanto Vania Rosalin who also finished with the same score.

China's Feng Kaijie, Liu Xiaohui and Zhang Xinyi won gold after scoring 9.82 while Hong Kong's Kwan Ning Wai, Yuen Ying Ka and Zheng Tianhui took home silver with a score of 9.57.
