It was "a black day for dancesport", as sports director Michael Eichert designated the IDSF European Standard in Moscow (Russia): " The first rank for Bosco/Pitton was the one true and correct result" , was his disappointed comment on site. "The second Russian couple would actually not have made it into the finals, and neither could we, the German delegation, understand why Gimaev/Basiuk were placed before Ghigiarelli/Andracchio".

The World Cup finalists Simone Segatori/Annette had to be comfortable with the fifth rank in the finals. "They danced amazingly, and would have deserved a better ranking," says Eichert. The second couple representing Germany, Stanislaw Massold/Christine Deck, in the semi finals last year, made it only to the quarter finals and finished with a shared 15./16. rank. "The two of them have not yet arrived at their usual level after their injury break, so this ranking was fine", says Eichert. A total of 58 couples were at the start and cheered at by around 1,200 viewers at Moscow's Druzba Hall.

1. Paolo Bosco/Silvia Pitton (Italy, 5)
2. Marat Gimaev/Alina Basiuk (Russia, 12)
3. Andrea Ghigiarelli/Sara Andracchio (Italy, 13)
4. Ivan Novikov/Margarita Klimenko (Russia, 24)
5. Simone Segatori/Annette Sudol (Germany, 24)
6. Wiktor Kiszha/Malgorzata Garlicka (Poland, 27)

15.-16. Stanislaw Massold/Christine Deck (Germany)
