Summary

Russia had been World Champion in 1997 and 1999, with Belarus winning in 1998. In Sydney there was little to choose between them. Greece had been runner-up at the 1999 World Championship, and led the qualifying in Sydney. But in the final, it was all Russia and Belarus and they finished in a tie with 39.500. The tie-breaker was to restore the high and low scores of the judges that were normally thrown out. When this was done, Russia won – 39.520 to 39.500.
