Spain won the boys’ race in 2017, followed by Hungary. Canada was 24th out of 27.

Russia topped the girls’ charts with 7.680 points. Canada was second.

The well-funded “Slam nations” – U.S., U.K. and Australia – are ineligible. 

This rather homogeneous group of federation representatives (sans kids) was at Roland Garros Monday to receive the 2017 trophies – and the checks.
