“Iulia Berar… Where did your potencial go? Get them girl! Prove them wrong”

“I want Berar to connect Preziosa + Switch ½ + Ring jump 0.5 connection value.”

“I know that she was injured for such a long time but I want Iulia Berar to do on bars Church + Pak + Chow ½ then stalder + endo in L + endo in L ½ + toe-on 1/1 + Double tuck 1/1. It would be a 5.9 worth but with her execution I believe she could score 14.5+ which could even make a final.”

“Iulia Berar is the new Porgras you can bet on that”

“I have hopes from Iulia Berar this quad. I just hope she stays injury free. Her beam is amaizing and her bars full of hope and I just hope she can snatch a beam gold.”

2019 Romanian National Team & Updates by Forminte (including injuries, staff problems and Chernobyl)

I gave up translating interviews lately, mostly because there’s not much to say, and if it is, it raises my pulse and I already have issues with that, but huge shout out to @airforcejuanaurelius​ for showing me Forminte’s latest interview and making my day. Gotta admit I missed the entertainment, because if you ignore the absurdity, he is quite the funny guy and below’s proof.

2019 NT – Denisa Golgota, Maria Holbura, Carmen Ghiciuc, Alexandra Mihai, Nica Ivanus, Laura Iacob, Maria Pana, Iulia Berar, Ana Maria Puiu, Ioana Crisan

(Forminte mentions having 10 seniors on the NT, names 9, says he’s forgetting someone, moves on, 2 minutes later remembers Crisan

Golgota will go to Doha and Baku WCs to prepare for Euros. Everyone skipped Jesolo because of the flu which delayed their training. Euros Team will probably be Golgota, Ghiciuc and Iacob, or maybe a miracle will happen with Berar and Puiu and they can get up to date with their training to be able to perform.

Golgota is the only healthy one, Mihai has been out with elbow pain for 2 years – eventually had surgery, Crisan has been struggling for 2 years with a twisted ankle – turns out she will also have surgery (‘to do something to her, I don’t know what, ‘cause I’m not a doctor’ – Forminte). Berar and Puiu have been out for 6 months due to ‘common pains’ (‘I’ve never seen such a generation before’ – Forminte).  Later on, he brags about how girls don’t get injured in Deva, apparently all the issues are from before, when they trained at the club.

He names several things contributing to the state of gymnastics, like how gymnasts aren’t as strong as before, you know, due to nutrition and Chernobyl (yes, he actually said that). Also, narrow selection pool, parents being too involved, no choreographer, no doctors on the NT (he has a point with the poor medical staff, though), etc. 

He mentions how, usually, when they have requests to local authorities, they usually get the standard response – ‘there’s no money’, but goes on to say that ‘fortunately, gymnastics can’t complain, as it has everything it needs to function, but we struggle with the staff, such as a choreographer, or a doctor.’ – Idk if he genuinely thinks they can’t find them in all of Romania, because, apparently, it’s not about the money?

The interviewer says he read about Larisa trying to come back and asks Forminte for more info, to which he responds ‘why would you think I’d know more about it?’ Turns out he read from the media that Larisa had the 3rd surgery and is trying to find a solution to train in Bucharest or Izvorani. She didn’t get in touch with him, so he doesn’t know what’s up with that.

Blames others for keep saying that there’s no hope for this generation which makes the girls and their parents lose motivation, totally ‘forgetting’ how he said that himself idk how many times.

Women’s TC names five original Gymnastics elements for their inventors:


At year end, the FIG Women’s Technical Committee approved five new elements – one on Vault and two each on Balance Beam and Floor Exercise – to be named for the gymnasts who performed them. With the exception of one that was presented first at the UEG 2018 Youth Olympic Games Qualification in Baku (AZE), all elements were successfully performed during the 2018 Artistic Gymnastics World Championships in Doha (QAT) for the first time at an international competition. The new elements, which will be published in the Code of Points, are as follows:

2018 Romanian Nationals

Saturday, Oct 13th – WAG TF & AA || 16:00 – 18:00 (local time)

Sunday, Oct 14th – WAG & MAG EFs || 10:00 – 13:00 (local time)

Gymnasts: From what I saw, the Juniors and Seniors will compete together. Some of the big names are Stanciulescu, Duta, Berar, Marchidanu, or Sfiringu among the juniors, and Golgota, Crisan, Ghiciuc, Iacob, Ivanus or Holbura among the seniors.

Stream: MAG TF & AA was streamed live on the Federation’s Fb page today, so I assume WAG will also be streamed tomorrow. The competition will also be broadcasted by TVR2.

Technically, the Worlds team will be announced after this. but at this point, let’s be honest, they just need to determine who the alternate’s gonna be because I’d be shocked if the 6 going to Doha are not
Golgota, Crisan, Ghiciuc, Iacob, Ivanus and Holbura.



Ana Maria Puiu will be the going to the YOG for Romania

She was a part of this year’s junior Euros team that ended up 4th. There she competed bars only, to score a 12.5, the team’s second higest score on the event. At the YOG quals she placed 10th AA (after the 1 per country rule) with a score of 48.632.

Is she Romania’s best jr AAer? I would have thought Berar or Sfiringu would go.

Only 2003 girls can attend. Sfiringu, Duta, Stanciulescu or Marchidanu are all 2002 girls, so they weren’t eligible.

Berar might still be recovering from that injury that took her out of Euros, but still, at YOG quals both Puiu and Berar competed and Puiu got the higher AA score, so maybe that’s why they went with her.


Team Romania @Euros

Seniors – Denisa Golgotă, Anamaria Ocolișan, Laura Iacob, Nica Ivănuș și Carmen Ghiciuc 

Juniors – Silviana Sfiringu, Ana Maria Puiu, Antonia Duță, Ioana Stănciulescu și Daniela Trică

Iulia Berar didn’t make it and I’m not totally devastated, you are! SHUT UP! She ended up with an elbow injury before the Romania – Israel friendly. Ughhh
