picture of 2016 European Standard

Two GrandSlams preceded this European Standard and both produced nearly identical outcomes. The top three couples maintained their places from Helsinki to Wuhan: Dmitry Zharkov - Olga Kulikova, RUS, won twice, Simone Segatori - Annette Sudol, GER, were first and Evaldas Sodeika - Ieva Zukauskaite, LTU, second runners-up in both. Many anticipated to witness yet another battle between these couples in Wroclaw too.
