One Year Ago ...

Emanuel Valeri - Tania Kehlet, DEN © RolandIt was a memorable World Championship Standard that ended with what some considered a surprise in Moscow on 29 October 2011. At the time, we wrote on our official championship blog ...


Who said that there are hardly ever real surprises in DanceSport. Well, we have just had one today. Benedetto Ferruggia and Claudia Koehler, GER, fell short of their ambitious goal to win the World Champion title for the third consecutive time. After the final tally of the marks, the runners-up in the 2010 edition of the World Standard came in first this time around.

Some people here in Moscow say that it was one of the tightest competitions ever. The experts felt that they would have had a very hard time to make the call, that they saw two opposing styles clash on the parquet, and that they are in agreement with the verdict of the panel of Adjudicators.

Well, the protagonists in last year's final will return for another go at one another on Sunday. But their roles have been changed. Let's look back at the 2011 World Standard.
