Gay Games medallists named Cologne sports team of the year

A message from FGG member European Same-Sex Dance Association:

During the live show "Kölsche Sportnaach 2011" on the local TV channel of Cologne, Germany, Caroline Privou and Petra Zimmermann were awarded the title of best sports team of Cologne for the year 2011. Never before had a same-sex dance couple received this type of recognition in a mainstream sports awards ceremony !

Caroline and Petra are the top ranking female couple in Standard (also known as Ballroom dancing) worldwide. In addition to the many international dance titles they have won (EuroGames, Gay Games, Outgames, etc...) they have been given this award in recognition to their dedication to dancesport, their very professional approach and the class and level of dancing never before witnessed in the world of same-sex dancing. They are outstanding ambassadors for the entire "same-sex dance community" around the world.

ESSDA, the European Same-Sex Dance Association, congratulates Caroline and Petra for this wonderful achievement and wishes to express its sincere gratitude to them because this award gives same-sex dancing a place in the (inter)national sports scene!

During the next EuroGames Rotterdam 2011 (the Netherlands), 21 - 24 July 2011, ESSDA will host the first official "European Same-sex Dance Championships" where about 400 same-sex dance couples from all around the world are expected to compete in Latin-American, Standard and Show Dance.
