In the final the Russian pair played with by the Japanese Hiroyuki Endo / Kenichi Hayakawa. The first set remained for representatives of the Rising sun (21:23), but two was taken by the Russians (21:18, 21:16) and celebrated the victory dance.

And the Russians sang a fragment of the ritual dance of the new Zealand Maori (the indigenous population) who practices before the matches the national team of New Zealand Rugby.
