Glorious Night at the Arena 25/07/2009

AvatarDanceSport shone bright at the Kaohsiung Arena when the medalists of the World Games Standard event took the floor for the honor dance. Tumultuous applause and shouts of "Encore!" had the three couples go all out and playing up to the fantastic crowd.

Earlier, the Italians Paolo Bosco and Sylvia Pitton had won gold, Germans Benedetto Ferruggia and Claudia Köhler silver, and Russia's Marat Gimaev and Alina Basyuk bronze.

Paolo and Sylvia received first place votes from all but one of the nine adjudicators.

2. Benedetto Ferruggia/Claudia Köhler, GER (10)

3. Marat Gimaev/Alina Basiuk, RUS (15)
