[April 13] Ploiesti International Championships : Floarea, the new Star?...

Floarea Leonida will be the only Romanian AA competitor, at Ploiesti International Championships, starting Friday at Ploiesti.

Five girls from the present National team will depart tomorrow to Ploiesti, from the National Training Center in Bucharest.

Andreea Munteanu wil
l go (soon, hopefully) to a medical check in Germany, after he mother have (practically) begged the RGF staff to do this, according to the press reports, crying with heavy tears at last official meeting of RGF with the girls (and media on the lobby, which may have helped for this decision, which should be taken back last summer-but back then nobody cares much, it seems). The Petrovschi case, even with the out-of-Court $$settlement, pays off now: the girls are send to medical checks abroad (almost) when needed, not only after big media and Court scandals.Some mother tears and begging were (still) involved, let's hope next time will be just a standard measure.

The girls from the Romanian gymnastics team will compete only at their favorites apparatus: Catalina Ponor will compete at balance beam and floor, Dana Sofronie-at uneven bars and (maybe) balance beam, Alexandra Eremia-at balance beam and Monica Rosu at vault.

The mans team is in better condition, only Alin Jivan having a leg injury, almost all member will compete (under the new code of point). In the men's AA competition will compete Ioan Suciu, Dan Potra, Razvan Selariu and Daniel Popescu. Also Marian Dragulescu will compete only at vault and floor, Marius Urzica at pommel horse, parallel and horizontal bar.

Athens Olympic champion Silvia Stroescu (retired last summer from the team) will attend the contest, for the first time as a spectator at a gymnastics competition.

Oana Petrovschi told to that she will attend the Ploiesti competition this weekend, as a spectator. This will not make Belu much happy, we can suppose- as much as the fans will not like that girls from the team are not in a very good shape for the contest, so there is a God who punish us for everything, right on the spot, some may think...

Also at Ploiesti International Championships will be many other famous names from Romanian gymnastics. Unfortunately, Nadia Comaneci will leave Romania Friday which means she is not able to attend the ceremonies there, due to a schedule conflict.

TVR 2 will broadcast the contest (exact timing will be updated in our Calendar). As of today, the announced aired times are: Friday from 17, 30; Saturday from 20,30 and Sunday from 10, 30. You may see over the web the TVR1 sport program resume at every major New Journal (19,00; 23,00).
