Larisa Iordache returned from a three-year hiatus to compete at the Romanian national championship! We discuss her performance and possible path to Olympic qualification.
Silviana Sfiringu is the Romanian national all-around champion, new queen of beam saves, and possible bars savior; we’re very into Ioana Stanciulescu’s beam routine; and junior Ana Maria Barbosu might rule them all.
Plus, the ways in which the Olympic qualification system has personally victimized Romania and how tentatively optimistic we should be about the future of the Romanian women’s team.
