Meet The 2017 World Games Salsa Champions

SALSA2.jpg

Check out the routine that won Stevens Rebolledo Montano and Yinessa Ortega the salsa gold at the 2017 World Games in Wroclaw, Poland, last week. In the finals, the couple faced the arduous task of needing to outperform former world champions and fellow Colombians Jefferson Benjumea and Adriana Avila Molina. 

With their title hopes on the line, Montano and Ortega compiled a total score of 37.54 to edge their compatriots by just over 0.3 of a point. Unfortunately for our non-Spanish speakers, their post-event interview is in Spanish, but their performance video transcends any and all language barriers.

You can find the full live stream of the event on the official World DanceSport Federation site.
