And the results are in! Denmark took home the 2018 WDSF Latin World Cup title! Umberto Gaudino and Louise Heise, 6-time National Danish Amateur Latin Champions, competed in their first World Cup here in Chengdu of the People's Republic of China and heard their national anthem played as they stayed upon the highest step of the pedestal. A big congratulations to them!

And the results are finally in! Just as predicted, Madis Abel and Aleksandra Galkina of Estonia have taken the glory of the 2018 WDSF Standard World Cup. This is their first year attaining such a title, for which their future holds no barriers. In their early twenties, this couple is the youngest to be at the top of the WDSF World Ranking Leaderboard, holding 6th place at 4,919 points.
If one takes the last editions of the World Cup Standard as the reference, a clear pattern emerges. The dancers who are victorious in one of them launch their careers to new heights and tend to remain on an ascending trajectory for quite some time.

While the “World Cup” is the premier global event in soccer and rugby, in WDSF-brand DanceSport it is second-tier – explicitly so. The National Member Bodies send their strongest couples to the annual world championship, where up to two per nation may be entered! But there is hardly a country that does not count on a highly ambitious third couple challenging the hierarchy and waiting for a break.
