Having a couple representing a city or a country is one thing, having eight is - consequently - eight times one.

The media impact of the European Latin Formation in the cities and countries with the biggest Latin formation tradition (as well as the strongest teams) was again considerable.

An international press review reveals that media exposure levels were again high in Germany, Lithuania and Russia.

The commentaries tended to be as varied as they can be - and depending on the result obtained by the respective formations - but they highlighted the essence of this spectacular discipline in unison. Here are just three articles that appeared online:

Germany

At the risk of repeating the same question time and again: why is formation not adjudicated under the new WDSF Judging Rules? Wouldn't it make sense?
