Third of Five | GrandSlam Beijing, CHN

The third installment in our series about the 2012 Series: the GrandSlam Standard in the Chinese capital played out in front of an enthusiastic crowd. It will become an annual fixture from 2013 and induce even more Chinese people to take an interest in DanceSport!

Beijing, CHN

2012 GrandSlam Standard BeijingThe Chinese DanceSport Federation organised two separate GrandSlam legs during 2012: a Latin in Chengdu, in July, and the Standard in the capital two months later. From 2013, when Latin and Standard competitions will always concur in date and place, Hong Kong and Beijing will be the perennial GrandSlam hosts through 2017. With the Finals having been awarded to Shanghai until then too, traffic on the Silk Road is bound to remain heavy for years to come. 

Emanuel and Tania were in great form at the Ditan Gymnasium and ended up winning the 2012 GrandSlam Beijing ahead of Simone Segatori – Annette Sudol, GER, and Dmitry Zharkov - Olga Kulikova, RUS. In the Series Ranking the Danish couple jumped to first place too. Having accrued 3209 ranking points in three competitions, Emanuel and Tania were certain to get an invitation to the December Finals already. What remains to be done until then? “We will take it step by step,” says Emanuel.

“There are still two more GrandSlam competitions and, prior to the Finals, there is the World Championship in Melbourne, AUS.”

And that is very high on their list of priorities. Rightfully so: this time they are the defending champions!
