Unfortunately, we have serious problems with the access to the Internet from the hotel in Chengdu. We may have to postpone uploading of the semi-final and final until WDSF Communications team member Helmut Roland returns to Germany tomorrow.

Heading Back ... 15/07/2012

... TO THE HOTEL. The athletes, the adjudicators and our WDSF Communications team member Helmut Roland are on their way back to hotel. Just as they did this morning in the opposite direction, they do this in an escorted convoy of coaches. The ride supposedly takes one hour. Helmut recorded it this morning, at about 8 a.m.

In any case, as soon as Helmut gets back to his room, he'll start uploading rounds from the quarterfinal to the final. Stay tuned!

And The Finalists Are ... 15/07/2012

2012 GrandSlam Chengdu, CHN © RolandThe finalists in this 2012 GrandSlam Latin Chengdu are ... 7! It comes down to a match-up between Russia (4 couples) and the rest of the world.

And to all of you wondering where the videos are: they will go up after the final. Dr Helmut Roland recorded some of the quarterfinal, the semi-final - and he's now set for the final. Not bad for a single person on location to relay results, shoot photos, do interviews and record videos. And certainly the best we can do on the WDSF budget!
