Martino Zanibellato and Michelle Abildtrup, DEN, decided to turn professional after competing for the very last time at the top "amateur" level in the 2012 GrandSlam Final Latin last December.

After being perennials in the finals of World and European Championships as well as at GrandSlam events ever since 2006, they achieved yet another place on the podium in Shanghai, CHN.

Now, just two months later, they made it to the podium again, claiming second at the 2013 WDSF PD European Latin in Moscow, RUS. Congratulations

On our facebook page, Elena Anashina offered us access to some exceptionally nice photographs that she took during Saturday's PD championship. Here are three showing Martino and Michelle in action at the Crocus Expo in Moscow. We thank Elena for her kind offer and the PD Vice European Champions Latin for their loyalty to WDSF.
