Van Brummen racked up 26 points during the competition, good for second place overall and first among Americans, second only to Russian Violetta Khrapina. Katharine Holmes was eighth overall and second among Americans, earning 14 points.

Her run ended there, as Hungary's Reka Bohus won 15-12.

Van Brummen had the No. 5 seed and faced lower-seeded opponents until she got to the quarterfinal. There, she beat Poland's Jagoda Zagala 15-13 and avenged teammate Holmes' loss to Bokus with a 15-9 win in the semis. The final round went to Khrapina, 15-14.
