Csongor Balogh/Anita Szabo, the third placed of the World championship, reached the second place here in Stuttgart in front of Vitaly Rogachevsky/Oxana Skripnik. German champions Thorsten Zirm/Sonja Schwarz lost wo place in comparison to last year. The start was unfortunate with a fourth and two fifth places, but they caught up in the last two dances Foxtrot and Quickstepp and finished the competition on fourth place.
