1979 Chunichi Cup, Nagoya, Japan: 3rd AA

The Junior Romanian National Champion in 1986, she enjoyed great success at her first international outing, placing first with her team and second AA at the 1986 Balkan Games. She capped off the Games with top honours on beam and floor exercise.

In 1987, her first year competing as a senior, Gabby traveled to England to compete in the Kraft International, placing first overall and on beam and floor exercise. She just missed a berth to the 1988 Olympic team, serving as alternate. Unlike many of her Olympic teammates, Gheorghe continued gymnastics past Seoul.

In 1989 she competed in the Moscow News, just missing the medal podium (4th AA). She retired shortly after, having been a member of the Romanian National Team for five years (1985-1989) and honored as "Master of Sport" by the Romanian Gymnastics Federation.

Like several former Romanian gymnasts, Gabby found success in Sports Aerobics. She competed in Paris at the 1994 World Sports Aerobics Championships, placing 12th in the women's individual event.

Gabby eventually left Romania to pursue a coaching career in the United States. She coached at Skyline Gymnastics Center LTD in York, PA for some time, where, in 1999, she was nominated for the Coach of the Year for Pennsylvania. While there she also coached Kylah Bachman to 4th place on beam and 10th AA at the 2001 J.O. Nationals (Level 10 Nationals).

Gabby is now the competitive women's coach at Diamond Gymnastics in New Castle, Delaware. She is married to Ganescu. (from gymnasticgreats.com)
