“‘It doesn’t matter how young, experienced or …

“‘It doesn’t matter how young, experienced or inconsistent our team is we just have to hit once per year at worlds qualifying’ – Romania at 2018 worlds, basically

No but seriously I have no frackin idea how they managed to get through bars and beam cleanly with those line ups based on this year. Mad props.”

“I’m so pissed with where ro nationals…

“I’m so pissed with where ro nationals are held. They are all in Deva, Izvorani, but none in the Bucharest Constanta or Cluj. There is no train to Izvorani and Deva is in the middle of nowhere so it is very hard to see the athletes.”

I keep on seeing stuff about Olivia Cimpian no…

I keep on seeing stuff about Olivia Cimpian not being able to compete until next December, so you have any details on this? I’m so confused

From what I know, it’s because the Hungarian Federation won’t release her, so she has to wait a year before competing for a different country, as per the FIG rules.

“Olivia not bebeing allowed to compete until…

“Olivia not bebeing allowed to compete until Dec 2019 is the pure proof that FIG is absurd. Romania and Olivia are wronged here.”

Raducan said their objective for Tokyo is ‘to win a medal’, and lmao that reminds me of that insane optimism you get after a couple of drinks when you’re all ‘yeah!! this is great, and tomorrow’s gonna be a great day!!!’ but then you sober up, and shit still happens and you get a bonus headache, too

Did she mean team specifically? Because I guess an individual medal isn’t that crazy if Lari is in one piece

No, she didn’t mention what medal, and said she hopes Larisa, Dragulescu and Muntean can be healthy, but it’s still crazy imo. Their objective should be consistency, upgrading, or maybe actually hiring a choreographer for the NT. 

There’s nothing I’d love more than a successful comeback for Larisa and if she does get an Olympic medal, I’ll legit cry, but… putting all hope (again!) in a girl that had 3 Achilles surgeries in the last year and hasn’t even started training again yet? That’s a stretch beyond belief. And she doesn’t need to be in one piece to win an Olympic medal, she needs to be in the best shape of her life. Also, in case she’s not ready to compete at Worlds and the team doesn’t qualify, can she even make it to Tokyo?

“Belu and Bitang don’t get enough back…

“Belu and Bitang don’t get enough backlash for ruining Romania during the 2013-2016 quad.”

“I do not understand why people call B&B…

“I do not understand why people call B&B better than Forminte. B&B’ best beam worker was Ponor. In 2007 at WC she was defeated by Forminte’s Nistor. On bars too, Forminte coached Nistor, Porgras who medaled at WC. B&B’s best was Iridon who was nice to watch, but under this CoP her routine would be under 5.5. Did I forget to tell how Ioana&Denisa’s bars(Forminte’s students) look like a copycat of Larisa’s. Meanwhile Iridon’s&Jurca’s(B&B’s students) were the product of a totally different coaching.”

Do you know if Andreea Iridon or Silvia Zarzu are still training?

Haven’t heard anything at all about them in a while, but I highly doubt it.
