Dulce Félix, in eighth, Salomé Rocha, finishing in 10th, and Susana Francisco, in 25th, earned the team a total of 43 points, closing a podium in which also Great Britain came first with 26 points and Ireland in second with 41 points.

Initially, Portugal had selected or pre-selected six athletes, but from this elite group only Dulce Félix and Salomé Rocha accepted the invitation. The others, due to season planning or injury, were left out, which led to Susana Francisco joining the team.
