1977 Int'l Jr Meet, Yokohama, Japan: 1st AA
Romania's Cristina Itu claimed top honours at both the 1977
Tokyo and Osaka International Japan Junior meets. Whereas these
meets traditionally served as springboards for great gymnastics
careers, Cristina's career seemed to have peaked that year.
She traveled with her teammates to the USA to compete in a USA-ROM
dual meet (Romania won and Itu placed 7th AA), but seems to
have fallen out of the international scene shortly thereafter.
Cristina eventually moved to the USA and began coaching at Golden
Strip Gymnastics in Simpsonville, South Carolina. Eventually
she purchased the gym, renaming it Champions Gymnastics Inc.
Coaching alongside Cristina is Mihai Lajos, one of the Vanda
Hadarean's former coaches.
