Cast Your Vote At Double Value! 06/01/2017

Gabriele Goffredo - Anna Matus, MDA © Egli For the fourth year already, two athletes representing DanceSport are among those put on the ballot for the "Athlete(s) of the Year" vote called for by the International World Games Association (IWGA). In the running for the 2016 title are the two-time World Champions, three-time GrandSlam Champions and reigning Champions of The World Games, Gabriele Goffredo and Anna Matus, MDA.

After our representatives Adriana Ávila - Jéfferson Benjumea, COL, Nino Langella - Khrystyna Moshenska, ITA, and Dmitry Zharkov - Olga Kulikova, RUS made it to a respectable third place in the 2013, 2014 and 2015 balloting, let's try to put Gabriele and Anna on top for 2016.

To do that, considerable effort will be required this time. IWGA takes advantage of this vote to boost traffic to its website and to recruit subscribers for its newsletter. This year the voting rules read:


You can give one vote for your candidate once every 24 hours! If you provide us your name, surname and email address and agree to receive our newsletter you will be able to give two votes at once instead of only one (see details in the confirmation email you will receive). 


Go, sign up for the newsletter and vote every day from now through 31 January! Click here!
