please notice, Adjudicator I was from Italy ( where Nino comes from ), Adjudicator E was from Ukraine ( where Krystyna comes from ), both Adjudicators gave them only 1. place in all dances, especially in Paso-Doble, where other Adjucators saw Nino/Krystyna
on the 3./4. place !! With this system of Adjudicators that couldn't be a fair and objective competition !!

you are right, but this is the dancesport......and we all know it....if zaitsev won on this comp then Nino's fan will be angry....so no sense the all thing...

Why should it matter if Nino's fans become angry? Dancesport is about the dancers performing their best and the judges selecting the best couple, not the public.

really ????? and that 2 spanish Couples were in semifinal ... this is no problem ??? just Zaytsev and Nino? You speak about judging like you do not know how it works. Spanish Judge did not mark Slovenian couple to semifinal but marked both spanish and
even the couple from israel (really funny) .... this is how it works .. next time it can be completely different results for sure it will be ;)

I want to congratulate Timur and Ekaterina for their performance. They never stop improving their technique, quality, connection, ... (Timur even more) . They didn't diserve this place. At least 3rd! Since Zaytsev changed teacher, the quality of the couple
is disappering. They were the best. Nino improved a lot with his last partner and diserved the first place without doubts! A negative point, it's that Nino is not constant in his dances : in all dances, after 50/60 secondes, the dance becomes less good. It
is a pitty. Timur is perfect from the begining to the end of all dances. Technically he is the stronger with Nino. (standing leg, foot work, center work, connection, musicality, ...) . Only after you have this quality, we can talk about subjectivity but not
before. If you have a minimum of gray matter, you can understand that!

Did Zaytzev changed his teacher? I thought he's been training with Muller for long period. Am I wrong?

isn´t it visible on Anna that she dance the same and has the same look as Olga Muller-Ometchenko in her active dancing time?
