Regular

Laura Jurca is no longer training in Deva, so I think the chances of a comeback are pretty slim at this point

anything on the juniors?

You mean if there’s anything new on why so many of them didn’t attend Nationals? No, no one said anything about it, and I doubt they ever will.

Now, if this was about results, the AA competition was split into 3 levels/age groups. Iulia Berar, Silvia Sfirigu and Amalia Puflea got the AA titles in their respective categories.

EFs had only 2 levels/age gropus. I think the older juniors (Berar’s group) did not have EFs.

Lisa Marchidanu dominated EFs in her group, winning 3 titles, and the one gold she missed on bars, was won by Antonia Duta. In the same group Sfirigu, the AA champ, won a medal in each final (vault/bars/beam silver, floor bronze).

In the other group Amalia Puflea was the one to dominate with 4 medals, 3 golds – bars, beam, floor, and a silver in the vault final, which was won by Sabrina Voinea. Erika Leonida also got 3 medals.

Romanian Junior Nationals are happening and the start list is depressing

I just saw the start list and I’m shook tbh. Of the 12 gymnasts listed on the Junior National Team at the beginning of the year, 10 are not attending. Let me say that again, 10 out of 12 NT members are not attending! What have they done with them? I know injuries happen and maybe some might have retired, but when most NT can’t make it to Nationals, it’s no longer a coincidence. Something’s terribly wrong at Deva.

(-combine it with Cimpian’s departure and the rumors about Crisan’s parents’ desire to have her transferred from Deva)

The 2 NT members still alive attending are Iulia Berar and Antonia Duta. Some other names to watch out for are Marchidanu, Sfiringu or Pana, who competed at Senior Nationals in September and made finals – Sfiringu getting VT bronze.

Golgota, Ivanus, Iacob, Stanciu, Anghel, Borascu, Oprea, Puiu, Stanciulescu and Trica

are MIA. I know Golgota had back and heel issues, and there are rumors that several girls decided to leave Deva, but that’s it.

What happened?

Who is even training at Deva?

No need to mention how no one is coming from behind to help the senior team next year. Let’s face it, even if they add more girls that will turn senior to the NT (who though?), they’ll break them til Euros.

And what’s more baffling, 10 out of 12 Junior NT members can’t make it to Nationals, and yet the Federation decides a change in the coaching staff is not necessary. How can one fuck up so badly, and keep their job? Someone must have a burning desire to kill this sport, I honestly can’t find a different explanation.
