Do you know what ever happened to Alisia Botnaru? She’s always in other Romanian gymnasts insta stories but did she just never transition to the senior level?

No idea tbh, sorry. Maybe she decided to retire like basically anyone else on the NT?

“The year is 2020. Tokyo Summer Olympics. Larisa Iordache comes out of retirement and snatches all of Simone’s record-setting gold medals and her wig. Simone is found crying wigless and Larisa is a celebrated icon for rebuilding Romanian gymnastics.”

Andreea Raducan resigned from her position of RGF President

Raducan says the coaches and gymnasts had all the resources to perform, but what they lacked was a (management) team able to understand the need of making a change. After becoming President, she did try to make changes – including on the coaching staff, but people were not receptive to her ideas. There was no unity at the RFG, and some of the Executive Committee members simply don’t want to change anything and just argue that there is no solution. Big egos are also a reason for the current situation of Romanian gymnastics. After missing the shot to qualify for Tokyo she started to wonder if she is the right person for the job, and so, decided to resign.

“FRG is playing with Silviana’s and Ioana’s life…”

“Hoping Romania’s bad luck will be over next year.”

“Can someone make one of those Powerpoint Comic Sans explainer things for the baby Russians and Romanians turning senior next year?”

“I am dreading the day when Romanian WAG becomes so shit that if they qualify an individual, we’ll be acting so proud because an underrepresented country is getting attention for once. And then once in a blue moon, they might medal on something.”

“Can Romania please make a comeback? I had no presents this year for 21st birthday and don’t want Christmas presents, I just want Romania to come back, back in TF and EF medal contention”

“This is so fked up, but I only really like seeing and watching the big four compete and win (USA China Russia and Romania), there’s just something about it, like they WERE all so strong, similar level and winning things and it was like who’s going to win, who can maintain their winning streak for the longest. Too bad Russia China and Romania WAG is so messy now especially Romania.”

“Enjoy while you can. Next quad Ukraine and Romania are coming back with a statement”
