2017 Ashgabat 28/09/2017

2017 AIMAG

Overall, 110 athletes representing 18 National Olympic Committees danced in eleven medal events at the 2017 Ashgabat Indoor and Martial Art Games (AIMAG). One third of all participants left Turkmenistan with a medal. Ten out of the 18 countries made it onto the medal table. That's a high percentage in both cases. Maybe too high!

Specialisation in a single dance is a purely Asian thing. And even there single-dance competitions are the exception. With a view to the future, DanceSport should be presented like it is in The World Games. Across contrasting disciplines: Breaking, Rock 'n' Roll and whatever in addition to Latin and Standard!
