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.
