Gabriele and Anna 9th in the race of TWG Greatest Athlete of All Time! 01/02/2021

 Congratulations to DanceSport, congratulations to our Champions, Gabriele Goffredo and Anna Matus!

The final days of the race were tight as our athletes were changing their position from the 7th to the 9th. Some evenings the race was so even, that we could follow how DanceSport and Gymnastics were changing places minute after minute!

At the end Gabriele and Anna collected 65146 votes, which was only 282 votes from the the 8th place (Paola Longoria, MEX / Racquetball).

The winner was with clear numbers Nicol David (MAS), multi-time Champion and TWG winner of Squash. Nicol was leading the race from the early stages. Her gap to the runner-up was clear, more than 200000 votes.

As Gabriele and Anna said in their live IG interview last Friday, this voting wasn´t only for them as nominated athletes, but also for DanceSport as such. Thank you for all of you who voted for DanceSport and kept the race exciting till the end!

Congratulations to the winner and to all participants – everyone known as one of the legends in their own sport. One more time – cheers to Gabriele and Anna!
