Looking Back At Antwerp Highlights 09/02/2012

Timur Imametdinov - Ekaterina Nikolaeva, RUS

The "Live from Antwerp" blog was widely followed. The number of visitors, the time these visitors remained on the site and many of the other parameters were comparable to those we have had for World Championships. Fact is that our blogs with reports, videos, photos and results have a loyal following, and that the audience appears to be growing still.

"Live from Antwerp" has disappeared from the homepage and moved to the permanent blog section. Check there in the next few days, as a few more things are still to go up!

What is still to come? Ferran Castañer, our editor, is working on THE FINAL REEL of the GrandSlam Latin, with all 30 dances performed by the finalists. Including their scores! Should be ready tomorrow! Prof Roland has narrowed the hundreds (thousands?) of photgraphs he has taken in Antwerp down to a FINAL SELECTION. Check the Gallery and the Latin Hearts there!

The rest of the WDSF Communications team is already busy planning the next "Live from ..." blogs on the 2012 GrandSlam Series, European Championships, etc.
