  • A Mixed Gender Sport: Really?

    The World DanceSport Federation takes a long and self-critical look at itself, asking, "If we are a mixed gender sport by default, why doesn't it show when it comes the our panels of adjudicators, our commissions or the Presidium?"

Corrigenda: 2010 World Standard 08/12/2010

The IDSF Communications team wishes to point out that the official results of the 2010 IDSF World Standard might reflect the placing of the Danish couple Bioern Bitsch and Ashli Williamson, the current World Ten Dance Champions, improperly. The following was pointed out to us by Bjoern himself.

Team Denmark

“It doesn’t look so good that it says that we were 14th when we pulled out in the quarterfinal because I slipped on the floor and my knee cap went out. There have been many people who have sent messages asking how it could be that we were 14th. I don’t know if it’s possible to put something on the website so people know why we pulled out? Anything would be great so people don’t think we danced really bad and got a bad result. My knee is doing much better now, but I have to build up all the muscles around the knee again to stabilise it.”

We couldn’t agree more and only wish to point out that, in our effort to provide you with “nearly real-time coverage” on the World Standard, we made mention of Bjoern’s serious injury at the time. Click here! Let’s hope that the results will be amended accordingly
