Gymnasts from Great Britain are set to take part in the upcoming Romanian Nationals.On August 25th,British Juniors and Seniors will take to the floor at the new Nadia Comaneci Arena in Onesti.The Nationals kick off on August 26th and will finish up on the 28th. Those said to be traveling to Romania are:

  • Beth Tweddle
  • Imogen Cairns
  • Hannah Whelan
  • Jenni Pinches
  • Danusia Francis
  • Niamh Rippin
  • Laura Edwards
  • Charlotte Lindsley
  • Laura Mitchell
  • Liz Beddoe
  • Kelly Simm
  • Jocelyn Hunt
  • Becky Downie

Sounds like a great bunch of gymnasts traveling to Romania. It will be great to see Becky Downie perform, since she has been out injured for some time. Nicole Hibbert is still out injured. The juniors and seniors will also compete at the Romanian Nationals competition so it will be interesting to see Great Britain V Romania. I would think that the Junior competition in particular will be very exciting, GB has some great juniors gymnasts as have Romania. The two countries are definitely in contention for a spot in the top 8 teams at Worlds so seeing the difference between the two will be very interesting. The Romanians will pay a return visit to the UK in September.
