Reporting From Shanghai, CHN 09/12/2016

2015 Walk of Fame We have barely had the time to celebrate all the positive developments in Lausanne, SUI, before we had to move on to Shanghai, CHN, for the next milestone events.

Scheduled over this weekend are the two GrandSlam Finals - known as the "Showdown in Shanghai" - that bring the 2016 Series to its conclusion by awarding the last big title of the year.

The 24 best couples in the world and two wildcard qualifiers from China are downtown, strolling down the traditional red-carpet "Walk of Fame" and getting blinded by the flashlights that are generated by countless press photographers. We should have the new video available shortly! The "Live from Shanghai" blog gets rolled out within the next few hours too!
