One of the big stories of 2012 has unquestionably been the resurgence of the Romanian women’s team. The 2000 and 2004 Olympic team champions have failed to medal in the team competition at both of the last two world championships, but this year have looked every bit as sharp and consistent as they did when ...
Larisa Iordache Landing an Amanar and Sandra Izbasa Landing a Cheng: Sure, these are being done on a relatively soft landing surface, but this is a sign they're likely planning on throwing these in London. Might Ponor have one up her sleeve as well? Iordache's Amanar looks TOTALLY feasible on a competition surface, while Izbasa's ...
What a thrilling finish to the competition. Romania continues to look incredible. After beating Russia two days in a row, they’ll now have to be considered a threat for at least a silver medal in London. Could gold even be possible? Not yet, but we can certainly envision how it might become possible…if Iordache adds ...

Diana Bulimar Floor 2012 Romania vs. France 5.8, 14.4 Diana Bulimar Beam 2012 Romania vs. France 6.0, 14.9 Diana Bulimar Bars 2012 Romania vs. France 5.7, 13.55 With names like Catalina Ponor, Sandra Izbasa, Ana Porgras, and now Larisa Iordache to contend with, Diana Bulimar has perhaps been a bit overshadowed in the last couple of years. But Bulimar was one ...
It’s been a while since we’ve heard a lot of uplifting news from the Romanian women’s delegation. After losing out on a world medal in 2010, the Romanian team appeared to be gaining momentum in 2011 with the return of its legendary successful coaches, Octavian Belu and Mariana Bitang, as well as 2004 Olympic star Catalina ...
Catalina Ponor Floor 2004 Olympics Team Finals It was one of the most decisive team victories in recent gymnastics history. Romania, the reigning Olympic champions who had been beaten by the USA at the 2003 world championships and were not necessarily favored for gold in Athens, peaked together beautifully for the Olympic team finals and delivered ...
I was definitely surprised to see this, even despite her obvious struggles last year – including injuries, failure to upgrade any of her routines (aside from her nice double layout on floor), and failure to medal at the worlds in Tokyo. Her gymnastics still had an elegance and level of beauty that made her one ...
Catalina Ponor Vault 2011 World Team Finals Is this vault Amanar-able? With some work, I think it is. Although Ponor has always had some form breaks on her vaults, one thing she has always been able to do is develop excellent rotation off the table. This is why her Yurchenko 1 ½ is always so good and ...
The team final that most expected would be a tight race between the USA, China, and Russia ended up being a landslide, with the USA easily regaining the world team title it last won in 2007. The Americans were absolutely rock solid and delivered perhaps their best team performance ever under the pressure-filled, three-up-three-count format. The ...
