The timestamp is only as accurate as the clock in the camera, and it may be completely wrong.
Yulia Zagoruychenko (born September 11, 1981) is the current World Latin Dance Champion, with her partner, Riccardo Cocchi.
At age 12, she earned her first major title in Russia when she became the Russian Junior National Champion.
For financial reasons, she could not afford to dance both Ballroom and Latin and so at the age of 16 she chose to pursue Latin.
Well, Italian-born Riccardo Cocchi is THE six-time World Professional Latin Dance Champion and inspiration for my upcoming book, The Dance of the Business Mind. She is founder of the Communication Transformation Business Workshop.
Riccardo's dancing is incredible and dreamy (like him), but what really makes him a champion is how he behaves off the dance floor. You, too, can learn and display these 13 actionable characteristics in your everyday life: Now compare this list with other finalists or idols that have come so close to winning it all, but have not earned a championship title. You'll find that there are some key characteristics that may be lacking.
This will surely provide some newly inspired interest from younger dancers who were on the brink of entering the final.
No matter what kind of sport you’re in, or which talent you’re pursuing, there is always someone that you want to model after and strive to become as great or greater than.
