Grand Slam Latin Platja d'Aro, ESP 01/05/2009

Avatar The year's third IDSF Grand Slam Latin was just held as part of the DO World DanceSport event currently taking place in Platja d'Aro, the Costa Brava resort town located 70 km north of Barcelona, Spain.

74 couples from far and wide entered the contest. Two couples from Canada (Belyayev, Anton - Popova, Antoanetaand  and Milot, Jean-Philippe - Bolduc, Laurence) and one from China (Shi, Lei - Zhang, Baiyu) had to travel the farthest) to keep their appointments with the rest of the world's elite.

After a spectacular final in a sold out Sports and Congress Center, the panel of Adjudicators established the standings which clearly reflect the Russian dominance:
