    • Hi, Atarah, not quite right, I’m afraid. It’s a little tricky to confirm because it hasn’t been posted on the Kobe website yet, but check the posting on the Kobe FB page. It’s quite clear: Helene and the young Chinese boy Yu Yuan tied for first. There was no second prize

      There was a THREE way tie for Third prize between Marianna Zolnacz of Poland, Yeo Jin Han of Korea and Anna Kondrashina of the Russian Federation.

      Mayuko Akimoto of Japan won 4th Prize.
