In case you miss them (I know I do :P)

Eight of the most decorated gymnasts of Romania were interviewed by Ok! Romania (which seems to be a mixture of a gossip magazine with a glossy one). There are some nice pics there and some interesting updates about their lives and careers.

You can read the entire story here.

I selected some nice pictures for you:

Fresh faces - Madalina Neagu

(pic from Romanian Gymnastics Federation site)
One of the Romanian juniors that impressed me the most this year is Madalina Neagu, she looked very nice on beam at Romanian Internationals and confirmed at the Euros, managing to qualify in the event finals. Unfortunately, a fall made her miss the 3rd place. I hope that for Madalina that was only the beginning of a great international career. Here is her beam routine at Romanian International in April.


I have the ticket for the 2010 worlds team final :D

Helooo, I am back after the long period of silence and more enthusiastic about gymnastics blogging than ever!
I have to clarify something, for the people that missed my posts: this absence, was not necessarily laziness, the most important argument in my defense is the fact that I had to complete the final project for my masters degree in mid July and the second most relevant is that I am relocating to Rotterdam next moth.
Anyway, with my urban development Masters degree in my pocket, I can focus on gymnastics from now on :P.
Today was a good day for me: I remembered that I was not moving just anywhere on this planet; it's Rotterdam the city of the most important gymnastics competition of 2010. I have to attend, even for one evening, right? Probably I will also go to the qualifications, being on a weekend and all, but for now I just purchased a ticket for the women's team finals, which happens to be my favorite part of any Worlds and the only final that was not sold out (as Rick had already announced a while back).
I am back and happy!
