Round three has just been completed here at the Beethoven Hall, where the "double star" couples have finally joined in on the action too.
Benedetto Ferruggia and Claudia Koehler, GER, will try for their third consecutive Grand Slam win in Stuttgart. No other couple has yet accomplished the perfect hattrick. Football/hockey parlance applied to DanceSport! God, where will it end?
At this morning's GOC press conference, the President of the German DanceSport Federation, Franz Allert, announced that anything other than a German victory tonight would have to be considered a surprise. The overall GOC medal tally for the host country is already exceptionally good, and the Grand Slam Standard could well add another one or two.
WDSF Communications will start with summary reporting on the Grand Slam from round 4, starting in 30 minutes. In the meantime we suggest that you watch our Live from the GOC programme (with a special guest appearance by Benedetto and Claudia). It ties you over perfectly until then.
