Romanian Training Videos
As we all know, the Romanians have been quite open with their training since Belu and Bitang took over. Today, RomaniaGymLovers posted a segment from Romanian TV featuring the girls talking about their experience at the European Championships (I think, I understand no Romanian) and perhaps their goals for the future. The four gymnasts who were interviewed were Amelia Racea, Catalina Ponor, Diana Chelaru and Sandra Izbasa- are they expected to be the top Romanian gymnasts at the world championships? Ana Porgras has been struggling a bit recently, but I do truly believe that she can peak for worlds. At least she is in a better situation than she was at this time last year.
Some training videos were also featured. The most impressive was Catalina Ponor on beam. She has not been back for long, but she has almost all of the skills she needs for a world class routine already: a double turn, a roundoff+layout combination, a couple long sequences featuring D rated skills and a double pike dismount.
