[May 4] Romanian
gymnastics fans about European Championships results
I bet that B&B wouldn't have sent a full team just
like in 2002. They would have sent only Izbasa and Ponor to
qualify for EF. ...And then just like in 2004, because of
not having a full team, the Romanians would not compete in
the last group at next TF Euros, so TV wouldn't broadcast
them. I guess then that I'm happy that Forminte rebuilt a
team, even if it had not the spark of the Amsterdam one. They
did just very fine with their limited capacities.

I think euros results were just fine. Italians are just very
good. And they had lots of luck too - I mean 0.1?! that really
doesn't mean anything.
Just look at what happened at last years Worlds, with B&B
the senior team got down to just two gymnasts! Now
Nistor, Stanculescu, Stan have all being injured and they
are coming back great. With B&B they'd have being finished.
And despite the team is rebuilding, they won two golds, a
team silver and two bronze. That is nothing to sneer at!

I'm bothered that all Romanians that remotely showed any
sort of charisma were broken down and discarded like trash.
I hold BELTYU [Belu's nickname on the US biggest Forum] solely
responsible for this and I am glad he is gone. I don't know
how Forminte will do but he actually seems to care about his
gymnasts and take's his time with them so they do over exert
themselves. Also, the junior team seems to have a very competent
choreographer. Whoever that is, I love their work. The juniors
seem to move with the music and their dance is very appropriate
to the music.
I think we need to give Forminte more time to prove his
worth as a National coach. I really like how he is developing
the junior team and they did reasonably well at Euros despite
so much upheavel in training last year. Deirdre/ Ireland
With Belu and Bitang Ponor would be retired ages ago.
