GNDO President Wendy Garro said: "I take this opportunity to thank Her Majesty’s Government of Gibraltar, all the sponsors, the Cultural Grants Committee and the donations through our fundraising programme from the public for making our participation a reality. In Poland, our dancers faced tough opposition, with many countries providing a very high level of technique and incredible high standards of pure dance. What these results do, is reinforce the high standards in the IDO, where medals and performing in finals are always hard to come by. The GNDO is delighted with the remarkable performances from the Gibraltar contingent and would like to thank the dancers and choreographers for being such great ambassadors for the Rock."
