PD World Standard title for Bjorn and Ashli 03/12/2018

We can seldom report that the crowd was so loud that you could barely hear the music. But this literally happened in Moscow on Sunday, when the Professional Division World Championship Standard came closer to the decisive stages.

The crowd showed their enthusiastic support already during the first rounds, but at the final - it was something amazing! You could just imagine the energy it gave to the couples as they were in the middle of the exciting final.

It might have been the overwhelming support of the crowd, or the fact that many couples had this event as the main event of the year, and all the hard work and concentration had been focused in Moscow. The final turned out to be high quality as the performance of all couples was excellent.

At the end of the day, Bjorn Bitsch and Ashli Williamson (DEN) were crowned the new World Champions. It was the eighth World title for Bjorn and Ashli: four in Adult Ten Dance, two in Professional Ten Dance and one in both ShowDance Standard and now this one in Professional Standard. 

Donatas Vezelis - Lina Chatkeviciute (LTU) won silver and Nikolay Darin - Natalia Seredina (MDA) won bronze. Andrey Motyl - Ekaterina Kim (RUS) ranked fourth, Cheng Dan - Li Zhenni (CHN) fifth and Alessandro Ilarioni - Aurora Sbardella (ITA) sixth.
