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.
Equally unambiguous Zsolt Sándor Cseke/Malika Dzumaev became 2nd as well as Vinzenz Dörlitz/Albena Daskalova were given the 3rd place.
Artur Balandin/Anna Salita, TTC Rot-Weiß Silber Bochum (5)
Zsolt Sándor Czeke/Malika Dzumaev, Grün-Gold-Club Bremen (10)
