Even if overall participation is slightly lower than for the GrandSlam Latin, the GrandSlam Standard Hong Kong matches the latter when it comes to the density of top-ranked couples. Only three out of the top 20 in the Standard Ranking are absent from the line-up. Hence this competition, too, turns into a gathering of the section’s “Who’s Who” and pits the absolute best against each other. We are coming off the European Standard in Wroclaw, POL, where Simone Segatori and Annette Sudol, GER, did not to defend their title won in Cambrils, ESP, a year earlier. And where perennial opponents Dmitry Zharkov and Olga Kulikova, RUS, ended up with a fairly straight shot at claiming their first continental crown. If Wuhan is the measure we can go by in terms of the margin separating one couple from the other after all five dances in the final, Hong Kong promises to be another duel with an extremely high dosage of suspense. Take it all in – together with the incomparable atmosphere at the McPherson Stadium – through the Vimeo on Demand highlight programme that will become available on Friday 17 June. It is a 6-camera production with full graphics, a few behind-the-scene pieces plus interviews with the protagonists! The programme is made up of four parts: the full-length semi-final, interviews with the finalists, the full-length final, the interviews with the medallist couples. © 2016 World DanceSport Federation - WDSF | All Rights Reserved
