[Aug 24] Romanian gymnastics team compete in Great Britain
Place: Benfield Centre for Sporting Excellence Newcastle upon Tyne,
Date: 26/27th August 2006

Saturday 26th - Team Competition from 3pm
Sunday 27th - Individual apparatus from 2pm

  The leading nation in Women’s Artistic Gymnastics, Romania, (3 times Olympic and 7 times World Team Champions) are coming to Britain to meet the GB National Team in a Friendly International at the Benfield Centre for Sporting Excellence in Newcastle on 26/27 August 2006.

  Both nations consider this event as an important checkpoint in their preparation for the World Championships in Aarhus (DEN), in October 2006.

  After the Olympic Games in Athens, Romania have gone through significant changes in their leadership and organisation of work, and since the recent retirement of the triple Olympic Champion Catalina Ponor, their team now consists primarily of talented young gymnasts who will play a vital role in the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing (CHN).

  Sandra IZBASA (16), the 2006 European Champion on Floor and Silver medallist in the All-around in Volos (GRE) seems to be the most likely successor of Catalina Ponor.
  Steliana NISTOR (16), the 2004 Junior European All-around and Floor Champion has reasonable international experience compared to the rest of the visiting team:
  Aluissa LACUSTEANU (14)– 2006 Junior European Champion on Floor,
  Andreea Grigore ,   Loredana SUCAR (16) and Daniela DRUNCEA (15).

  The two most experienced gymnasts in the British Team in Newcastle will be the World, Commonwealth and European Finalist on Vault Imogen CAIRNS (17) from The Academy G.C., Devon, and Melanie ROBERTS (18) from the City of Liverpool G.C., who has a proven record of successful International participation.
  Aisling WILLIAMS (16), also from Liverpool, has recovered from her wrist injury and is now in her top form. Two stylish gymnasts from Barry Girls G.C., Wales , Lynette LISLE (17) and Olivia BRYL (18), are also included in the team, together with the talented hopefuls Emma WHITE (16), the 2006 British Champion on Vault from Huntingdon G.C., and Kerri UPTON (16) from Dynamo, Southampton.

Elizabeth TWEDDLE (21), 2006 European Champion on A. Bars will not be competing in Newcastle, but continues her preparation for the World Championships.
