  1. When Golgota is your best bar worker you know you’re in trouble. Lol.

    I want this Romanian team to hit so bad at euros, but I think it’s gonna be really really tight. 😦


    • Golgota kind of reminds me of 2014-2015 Laura Jurca. Powerful vault, dynamic tumbling, decent Beam, and while their bars were both very weak as juniors, they both showed good upgrades and potential as first year seniors. While Golgota shouldn’t be the best bar worker, she has upgraded a fair amount since last year and has improved a little bit in form and consistency as well.


      • I do think she has improved a lot. Especially on floor where she has cleaned up her execution.

        I just think that bars will drag the Romanian team down and I’m not sure if their VT, BB and FX is strong enough to keep them in contention for a TF spot. Other teams are looking a lot stronger and better balanced.


  2. My projection for Euros using Romania’s nominative roster:
    Golgota all 4 events: 50 – 53
    Ghiciuc UB+BB with Ocolisan VT+FX: 50 – 53
    The third set of scores come from any random combination from Iacob, Ivanus(no UB), and Ocolistan (UB)
    FTY4.6D + UB4.7D + BB5.2D + FX5.1D: 48 – 51

    Lower-bound projection: 148 (No finals)
    Upper-bound projection: 157 (around 5th)
    Average projection: 153 (8th)


  3. They definitely have a chance to make finals but EVERYONE has to hit. It also looks like Ocolisan hit a DTY which is a nice boost for them. Bars will drag them down, but I think they’re way stronger than Hungary or Switzerland now that they’ve lost Kovacs and Steingruber, respectively. With Golgota, Ghihuic, Ocolisan, Iacob, and Ivanus? (Crisan..?)
    VT: Ghihuic, Ocolisan, Golgota
    UB: Ocolisan, Ghihuic, Golgota
    BB: Iacob, Ghihuic, Golgota
    FX: Ivanus, Ocolisan, Golgota
    That 2 DTY lineup will serve them well, as well as their floor lineup. Their beam isn’t as strong as traditional Romanian beam, but it should be fairly solid and consistent. Golgota has really become the new Iordache, though she’s more of a Laura Jurca type gymnast.


    • The thing with this team is that they are really consistent like romanian used to be, right now i think they have a chance to go to the finals and if they hit contend for a medal… The only good teams are Russia and France , but the UK is playing at home. I am happy if they make it to the finals


    • Yaaaas! I’d like to read more about that as well (by that I mean – Cimpean coming back).

      I’ve been following the boiling pot of drama that Romanian gymnastics is all about and it seems (very hush-hush) that altough Berar was initially put up, she won’t be attending. Forminte says it’s because of an injury, but this wasn’t 100% confirmed by her, I was kind of left with the impression that there’s a lot more behind it, judging by her replies when questioned about it. Also, we know that Romania just *loves* to make random decisions and fake injuries (Olympics 2012, Bulimar and Iordache anyone?)
      Now that my rant is over – the junior team will be the one to watch. They have solid scores and great consistency, even better than the seniors. Ana Maria Puiu and Stanciulescu Ioana have great potential, and even Sfiringu if she has a good day and is consistent.
      It’s good to see that Romania can put 5 juniors up, i’m super duper excited to see them.

      Gonna go print a T shirt with their faces (nope, not joking).
