43 couples from all over the world, from Japan to the US, were part of this premiere: for the first time a WDSF Open Senior III Latin competition was taking place.

The performance of the couples was still mixed. There were many faces one knew from the Standard section. With every round the Latin specialist came through more and more. For Manuel Ramirez/Julia Lopez their lucky streak ended on this day. The couple had won all competitions since October 2018, the last one in Juli at the danceComp in Wuppertal. In Stuttgart it was “only“ enough for third place. Petri Jarvinen/Ulla Jarvinen, who were 13th at the GOC Senior II Latein competition three days ago, won silver. Oleg Eskov/Julia Mikhina won another gold medal for Russia.
