Debrecen Debriefs 09/06/2018

2018 European Latin Judges © Roland Hendrik Nelson, a "loyal member" (supposedly of WDSF) whose identity cannot be verified, writes in a recent message that went out to probably thousands of recipients and is now in the public domain: "Many judges and members say it is wasting time and money of WDSF to have the debriefing."

Holger Nietsche, an adjudicator at the recent 2018 European Latin says at the end of his debrief with Cor van der Stroet: "I actually think that this debriefing is a wonderful thing because I think that in any kind of sport - as you see in football, where there is a press conference straight after the game, and everybody has to give an opinion - this is what people want. This is what couples want. I think if couples would get more of these opinions, they would believe more in the system ..."

WDSF owes it to those adjudicators who have collaborated with the chair of the Adjudicators' Commission and the CCM Task Force by participating in these sessions to have all their recordings on this website. Here are Holger Nietsche, Clara Lamar and Martin Odstrcil. Sorry, Hendrik!
