Again, as in the pre-Covid period, the result in the ranking was very close. Vova & Yulia finished 50th-51st. Davide & Maja survived the hope round and qualified for the 2nd round. Unfortunately, that was the end of the line and they finished 48th-49th.
Both couples showed their current good level and represented Switzerland in the best way!
The performance differences of the couples in the 50th-25th rank range are not very big, it is really close there. And especially at the World Championships, the political and national interests of the adjudicators always come to the fore, despite regulations to the contrary. Without a national adjudicator and international mutual support, the hurdles to get into the round of 24 are very high. The only thing that helps is a good place in the world ranking list, being known through many participations in international tournaments and, if possible, having one’s “own” adjudicator, who then also dares to take one’s own national interests into account.
The World Championships always have a very high prestige value. But from a purely sporting point of view, the results of a GrandSlam, a WorldSeries tournament or the world rankings are worth more. So stay tuned and persistently develop your own skills!
