2017 WDSF European Latin _ Promo
Sep 17, 2018
Armen Tsaturyan and Svetlana Gudyno, RUS, were crowned European Champions for the second time in their career. After winning the 2015 European Latin in Aarhus, DEN, they surprised many by narrowly defeating their direct opponents and considered the favourites for the 2017 title, Gabriele Goffredo and Anna Matus, MDA, in a dramatic final. Relive this extraordinary final that came down to the wire and that saw the powers shift, however minimally, for the first time in nearly two years.
In fact, it required scores of 39 points and more in the Paso Doble and in the Jive to come from behind and stage the upset by nine decimal points.
Since their third place in the 2015 GrandSlam Latin Stuttgart, which was won by the Russians too, the Moldovans remained undefeated in two World and one European Championships plus altogether eight successive GrandSlams. Armen and Svetlana, on the other hand, had to content themselves with two victories in GrandSlams - Moscow 2015 and Platja d'Aro 2016 - where Gabriele and Anna did not dance.
The 6-camera production in High Definition covers the decisive stages of the 2017 European Latin, with full graphics but without commentary. The programme is made up of four parts: the full-length semi-final, interviews with the finalists, the full-length final and interviews with the medallists.
