On Location

The WDSF Communications team has arrived in Tokyo and discovers that response levels are high to certain posts in this blog. Being on location should allow to get the matter of the World Ranking List - and the list of "star" couples for tomorrow's GrandSlam - sorted out with the foremost authority, the WDSF Sports Director Marco Sietas.

While speaking of high levels of response, we remind everyone that acting on the call made in the previous post (One Year On) is an expression of solidarity with those who were victimised by last year's natural disaster in northeastern Japan. In the printed programme for the Tokyo International Open Championships we came across the following lines written by some of them.

We never forget! The power of DanceSport!

We will never ever forget the day of the 11th of March. Our hometown and our beautiful land were devastated. Our families and friends were broken up at that moment.

No light, no bonfire, we were just trembling for fear and cold.

In the midst of struggling with the days of hardship, maybe it was a day under the late summer sunlight and the joy of dancing that flashed across our minds.

One year has passed since we had the earthquake and tsunami, we have taken one step, then another, always praying for a better life.

Now we can say our people in the Tohku Region are getting better.
