[June 30] Oana Petrovschi: 10 score for English, despite heavy pains
This morning, Oana Petrovschi get (another) 10 score, for her English language test. Despite heavy back pains (each time when weather change or heavy pressure coming, she have strong back pains), Oana made an effort and went to the English language exam this morning. And she get a 10!

[June 28] Romanian gymnastics "students" scores: 10, 10 and again...10!

Alexandra Eremia was the first to start, earlier today, the exams sessions for the Romanian gymnastics (Olympic) team.

[June 24] Powerful tornado hit nearby the National Training Center
A powerful tornado hit earlier this morning (like 2 a.m.) right nearby the National Olympic Center, where girls live these days.

Photo at right:
Floarea and Munty last summer,
having a minute time off between their walk from gym hall to the hotel. As you may see, the whole area is crowded with old trees, ready to go down at first strong wind.

Girls are fine (maybe a little bit scared) and the hotel where they live is very strong, but if the tornado would hit during the day, when girls use to have walks in the park, something bad could happen.

[June 23] Rosu and Eremia received the INMS agreements...whatever
Monica Rosu and Alexandra Eremia received today the INMS agreements for training. Well, not exactly the most correct ones, but kind of. They may be legal, I'm not sure if they are moral or very professional ones.
How they manage to get it? By arranging "on spot" (discreetly and in a big, big hurry) a more "friendly" commission to review the girls new medical documents.

[June 22] Catalina Ponor- Honorable Citizen of Constanta and...landowner
During a ceremony hosted by Constanta Municipal Council, Catalina Ponor and her former (first) coach Matei Stanei have both received the titles "Honorable Citizen of Constanta" and promises for 500 square meters of land (inside city, to build a house, approximated value $25 000-$70 000, depending on the location to be given).

[June 21] Catalina Ponor and Monica Rosu have soccer favorites
Catalina Ponor and Monica Rosu have both revealed their soccer favorites: the Romanian soccer team "Steaua", the most popular in Romania since communist regime (they won European Champions League back in 1986).

[June 20] Andreea Chelaru has a brother
Andreea Chelaru has a brother! Her mother just returned from hospital with the new family member: Rares Andrei, born on June 8 -a healthy and beautiful 2,900 Kg boy.

[June 13] Dragulescu and Urzica, actors in a gym movie

[June 6] Catalina Ponor, the last remain of a (former) Gold Team
It takes less than a year from the success of the Romanian gymnastics team, to see the disaster from Euros.

This came not surprisingly, but still unpleasant for all those who loves the Romanian gymnastics.

Catalina was still the "Angel" of the team, saving (not entirely) the Honor of Romanian gymnastics (...and B&B's), with an excellent balance beam evolution.
