Overall, there were eight teams, with 32 athletes in total.

"It was hot, 32 degrees Celsius (about 90 degrees Fahrenheit), and there was a great atmosphere in the stadium with 7,000 seats. The crowd really loved the competition and got outrageous.

"Team Lithuania won; they were one point behind Russia in the 22nd event, but they won the squat and came equal, but even though they had same points, Lithuania had more wins," so they got the overall victory.

Here are the overall results from the finals:

1. Lithuania 26 points
2. Russia  26 points
3. Ukraine 18 points
4. United States 8 points
