The competition was organised in 5 categories this year, with 45 entries from 14 universities. After the official opening, the competition kicked off at 11am. In the women’s amateur category, an Egyptian competitor, Badr Faeeda, surprised the athletes and defeated last year’s winner Andrea Acél in the semi-finals, but in the final she had no chance against Nóra Bartha-Boncz.
