Marius-Andrei Balan – Khrystyna Moshenska (GER) The World Games Athlete of the Year 2023 list of candidates has been published. DanceSport is represented in the race by none other than our current World Latin Champions, Marius-Andrei Balan – Khrystyna Moshenska (GER), who remained undefeated in 2023. The talented, athletic and charming couple demonstrated their technical and artistic skills on the dancefloors around the world and gained a fanbase which followed the couple from an event to another.

We are proud of our candidates for the election as the couple’s competition record in 2023 shows four WDSF GrandSlam wins, including the prestigious 2023 WDSF GrandSlam Final in Shanghai in December, only a couple of weeks after the triumphant 2023 WDSF World Latin Championship and their third World title.
