2015 WDSF WC Standard Vilnius
Emotions were flying high at last year's World Standard in Vienna, AUT, when the fight for the title was between two couples that had never tasted victory at this level before. Simone Segatori - Annette Sudol, GER, and Dmitry Zharkov - Olga Kulikova, RUS, had won GrandSlams, but a world or continental title had escaped them so far in their career. The final tally of points in the Vienna final had the Germans in first with 191.685 and the Russians in second with 189.171, no landslide by any measure. Much has happened since then. Simone and Annette went on to win the European title and four GrandSlams in 2014. Dmitry and Olga held against it with one GrandSlam victory in Moscow. There were some very memorable dances too. One only needs to think back to GrandSlam Stuttgart, where the Russians convinced the panel with their Tango and shocked the Germans in the first dance of the final. This World Championship in Vilnius, LTU, should see the fight for supremacy in Standard continue between the same two couples. With a third not too far off and capable to stage an upset: Evaldas Sodeika - Ieva Zukauskaite, LTU, dance at home and in front of their fans and friends. That always inspires ...
