Izbasa & Ponor likely to continue training


The Couch Gymnast links to a news source which suggests that London 2012 Olympic Floor medalist Catalina Ponor and London 2012 Olympic Vault Champion Sandra Izbasa will continue training.

 Of course this news is yet to be confirmed by the Federation or the gymnasts themselves but if true , this serves as great news for Romania who’s team form picked up immensly once Ponor returned to competition and Izbasa began to compete on bars. The Romanian team placed 4th at the 2011 World Championships, with Anna Porgras contributing greatly (yet, not her best Worlds). Since then Porgras has unfortunately retired, yet Romania climbed up the ranks at the 2012 Europeans to tke gold and then followed on to take bronze at the London 2012 Olympic Games.
