Addressing The Issue 04/01/2017

Flemming Riis, DEN At the beginning of December 2016, Flemming Riis, the President of the Danish DanceSport Federation, wrote on behalf of the ten National Member Bodies in attendance at the 2016 North European DanceSport Championship in Vilnius, LTU, a message to WDSF President Lukas Hinder.

In it, Riis expressed the support of Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Denmark, Poland and Germany to the work of the Task Force to Combat Competition Manipulation in DanceSport.

Dear Lukas,

On behalf of the Meeting of the Northern European Countries (NEC) – we would like to express our deepest support to your work for clean sport. We strongly support your fight against match-fixing, your fight against manipulation and corruption in DanceSport.

We know that manipulation and corruption is everywhere – even at the top of DanceSport – and we hope that you will continue looking into every part of the organisation to make our leaders' credibility stronger. We know that you are working for a stronger “Code of Ethics” for the leaders in our DanceSport. Please continue your efforts.

None of our countries are interested in the diabolic way, manipulation are in our beloved dancesport today. Keep on fighting: the NEC will support you!

Best regards,

Flemming Riis

Even before the adjudicators concerned have received information regarding their nomination. And already they are being invited as trainers to certain camps. What's wrotten here?
