  1. With Golgota injured and the status of Nica unknown I really hope that Ghiciuc won’t be Romania’s only gymnast at Euros… why not nominate a 4th like Laura Iacob or one of the new seniors to let them get some more experience?!

    • I don’t know, but Romanians entire senior national team consists of 6 people right now ( and I believe that’s the actual count, not a hyperbole) so it’s not like they have that many testing the depth options. Also, there’s no point in spending money on putting in gymnasts that may not be prepared. If Iordache and Golgota aren’t ready by worlds, Romania’s chances at qualifying a full team will most likely be done. With Crisan and Ivanus uncertain, they really need big numbers from Iordache and Golgota to push for a 12th place finish. It’s a shame that the test event will no longer qualify full teams because Sfiringu and Stanciulescu would have likely bolstered Romania a lot (assuming a successful junior-senior transition, which isn’t exactly a given for Romania)

      • NT: Golgota, Ghiciuc, Iacob, Crisan, Ivanus, Berar, Puiu, Holbura, *Iordache*

        *based on what Iordache has shown on Instagram I think she will be fine for stuttgart. She already has Tkatchev+Pak, Blind Change+Jaeger, all of her Aerials on beam…

      • Not exactly bad. Still scores about two points higher WITH a fall than Simakova in the team quals at the same competition. So why would you take Simakova who is the national champion but got beaten by Mustafina also on day 2 of nationals AND virtually in Stuttgart too? Frankly, I would take Mustafina to Euros. On a good day she will make AA final and can potentially make BB and UB, too. Simakova? AA but that’s about it.

        • Valentina said that without the beam fall Aliya would’ve placed third, and that she showed good progress in that meet and Aliya has a good chance of being on the Euros team. Simakova has been having problems on vault, and had scary landings at nationals. It’s also important to mention that Aliya got the top AA score on the second day of nationals. With Seitz not competing and Melanie out of AA, Aliya has a really good chance of getting on the AA and UB podium.

  2. This is a new low for European gymnastics at a pre-Olympic year. What is happening that with more money and technology the sport is regressing so much?

  3. Anyone knows what is actually happening to Nica Ivanus? She’s apparently leaving the Romanian team & retiring from gymnastics, while at the same time upgrading to a DTY and selected to compete in Euros, just according to different sources…

    Like

    • Yeah I’ve heard both from the same source so I’m like are you okay or what lol. I’d imagine if they put her on the nominative roster, she’s probably still with the team…

  4. So, whats up with GB? GMF not picked initially and not picked as a replacement despite two British titles. I think there may be more to it than we know. Pretty sure GB wouldn’t leave her home without good reason.

    • They initially based the decision on camp and English Championships, where GMF had a rough performance. As a replacement, they were probably looking at who would be most competitive for a medal at Euros, which Claudia would be on floor…GMF has struggled a bit internationally in UB finals, and the UB field is deeper than the floor field, so Claudia I believe has the better chance if that’s how they were looking at things. I think GMF should replace Alice at this point, but I guess with Alice not being injured, they can’t really go back on naming her to the team just because GMF got her life together for British Championships…they knew going in that camp and English were the two that mattered most, so that’s where Alice set herself apart and made the team and where GMF *didn’t* make that happen…but I think had they just sent a bogus nominative team (rosters were due last week) and then waited until after British to name the actual team, GMF likely would’ve been on it.

      • That makes sense, thanks. Yeah, they can’t exactly change the rules now- if one person does better at selections then it would be kind of shady to change the goalposts after the selections finished, I guess. It’s kind of weird to have GB going from this time last year being close to having the whole national team injured to leaving genuine podium threats at home though!
