 He is building a fantastic palmares on Vault and Floor and is getting better and better in the All Around. He just won the 2004 European title at these three events. He was a scholarship holder with the IOC in September 1998. Why this sport? As a young boy he only went to gymnastics as an excuse to get out of karate. However as training became more intense he decided to switch to swimming because it was free. His father was not aware that his son was not at gymnastics. But Marian soon went back to the gym as swimming was no longer free after three months.

Student Education: Physical Education - National Academy of Physical Education and Sport: Bucharest. Training Regime: Trains over 30 hours/week. Most influential person in career: Pascu Nicusor, "because he teaches me all I know in gymnastics". My first coach A. Dumitru is also to thank for me being a gymnast". Hero/Idol Nadia Comaneci: "because she is and always will be the best gymnast in the world." Ambitions: To be an Olympic champion and after that a coach. Hobby: Sports cars. Family: Marian's father Ional is a retired mechanic and his mother Vassilica works in a pizza restaurant. Two brothers.
