Sergey Konovaltsev, RUS, who has recently announced the end of his partnership with sister Olga, remembered the night of 28 July 2013 in an interview with dancesport.ru.
"Olga and I have danced on nearly all continents, but what sticks out in our memories is South America, Colombia and The World Games in Cali.
We knew that Olga suffered from an injury, but we wanted to dance this competition, one that takes place only every four years.
What a gratifying experience it turned out to be. Imagine 17,000 people chanting 'Russia' ..."
No need to imagine: here is the 90-minute television programme of a truly memorable night for DanceSport. Salsa and Standard dances performed by the world's best at the Cali bullfighting ring, one of the biggest crowds ever, a break for rain, and much, much more!
