Do you agree with the Federations choice?  It hasn’t been Ana Porgras’ year, so she was never going to top the poll. Injuries aside, Izbasa, the 2008 Olympic Floor Champion has had a good year winning two golds at Europeans in Berlin, unfortunately she didn’t compete at Worlds. If you had to decide the top 10 Romanian Gymnasts – who would you choose? Leave a comment below and let’s start a discussion.


  1. Ana won the Longines Prize for Elegance at the 2011 Worlds. Sandra is a wonderful gymnast, but no Romanian, actually not too many international gymnasts right now, can top Ana’s elegance (just my opinion of course, haha).

  2. Admin says:

    Oh definitely Ana is beautifully elegant!

  3. Ashley says:

    I agree with making Izbasa number 1. It’s unfortunate that she couldn’t compete at Worlds. I feel like Ponor should be higher but maybe it’s because she didn’t make an impact on the team at the 2010 Worlds or at 2011 Europeans. I’m also not familiar with Diana Trenca and was wondering where Gabriela Dragoi was considering people thought she was in contention for a 2011 Worlds’ team spot.
