After her first routine, MacLennan was in third place, but slowly built up momentum heading into the finals.

In the finals Rosie dazzled, putting together a routine that earned a score of 56.465, putting her in first place with two competitors to go after her.

In the end they could not match her final round, and Rosie successfully brought Canada home another gold medal.

Canada continues to move up the medal rankings now in 11th place with nine medals.
