On the preliminary starting list of August 6th there are 64 couples registered for the third leg of the 2019 WDSF PD Super GrandPrix Standard Series.

The previous two events took place in Tokyo (JPN) and Pieve Di Cento (ITA) in March. The Moldovans Nikolay Darin – Natalia Seredina (in photo) won the event in Tokyo, and ranked second after Bjorn Bitsch – Ashli Williamson (DEN) (in cover photo) in Italy. The following two positions have been tight between Andrey Motyl – Ekaterina Kim (RUS) and Cheng Dan – Li Zhenni (CHN), who have been switching the runner-up positions behind the Moldovans.

This year in Stuttgart there will be very interesting new players on the field. Four-times WDSF World Champions will make their comeback to the WDSF dance floor, this time in Professional Division. Dmitry Zharkov and Olga Kulikova (RUS) will make their first appearance on international floors of WDSF PD on Thursday.

Last year they left the Beethoven Saal accompanied with a standing ovation after winning their 18th GrandSlam title. This year they enter the floor as rookies in a way, but still as one of the favourites. As the competition record in Professional Division shows blank, the couple will start the competition from the first round, which might be a refreshing experience for the couple aswell.

The platform for the main WDSF events, will live stream the event on Thursday, August 15th, starting from the semifinal round at 20:10 CET. The final is expected to start at 22:15 CET.
