I don't know that much about international competitions, but I just look at the results for the Amateur Latin and Ballroom couples at the Imperial Championship that ended yesterday. In the Ballroom section I was struck by seeing 2 couples from China in the Final and 2 couples in the Semi Finals. In the Latin, there were none in the Final, but 2 from China in the Finals. I do not remember this strength from Cbefore, although I have seen many, many entries from China in the past few years in the early rounds. I would appreciate any feedback from people who know far more than I.
