Great cast and great bad luck

Ranking list competition in Aachen

26 couples, among them several of the German top, delighted the audience at the ranking list competition in Aachen. However, two of them that had been expected to be on the top of this competition had bad luck. Timur Imametdinov/Nina Bezzubova and Maxim Stepanov/Kseny Rybina had to finish the competition too early because of illness and injury respectively. Artur Balandin/Anna Salita presented themselves in excellent condition and therefore were given full top grades.
