IDSF Secretary General Marco Sietas

Marco Sietas, who is acting as the Chairman of the IDSF World Standard, is satisfied with the turnout. “With 75 couples entered we have met our goal,” he says. “We will have a new World Champion this year: Paolo Bosco and Silvia Pitton moved on to IPDSC competitions, and the race for their succession is on.”

Being in Aarhus, DEN, with the  2009 World DanceSport Championship seems appropriate to the IDSF Secretary General. “Denmark is celebrating its own ‘Year of Sport,’ ” he comments, “the country has hosted a number of very important events in international sports throughout 2009. The Olympic Congress took place in Copenhagen in October, and our championship is wrapping up the celebrations for one of the world’s most sporting nation.”

Round 1, which has just started now, is contested in eight heats. It should be finished by 13:45 and the first videos with the top contenders  should be up shortly thereafter.

Speaking of top contenders: two seem to get mentioned more than the others – Benedetto Ferruggia and Claudia Köhler (# 217, GER) plus Andrea Ghigiarelli and Sara Andracchio (# 221, ITA) … Here they are just about to hit the floor for the Round 1 Waltz.
