Vadim Garbuzov and Kathrin Menzinger Vadim Garbuzov and Kathrin Menzinger compete in the WDSF Professional Division since late last year. In recent months, the two have also participated in several Dancing Stars programmes, the Austrian spin-off of BBC's Dancing with the Stars format.

In the final held last Saturday, Vadim and Kathrin led their celebrity partners to glory on the parquet of the ORF studios. Vadim and singer Roxanne Rapp won the contest, Kathrin placed third with former ski jumper Hubert Neuper.
