Most Decorated Romanian Gymnasts *The ENTIRE LIST*
To come out of my tumblr “hiatus” I made the full list of most decorated Romanian gymnasts. Ever gymnast from Romania that ever medaled in a world championships or Olympics is listed here. This took over 3 hours of hard work.
*PLEASE NOTE* I included team competition medals. IMHO, not counting their team medals is the same as saying their contribution wasn’t useful for the team.
This follows the system of gold, silver and bronze. This means that a gymnast with 1 gold will be ahead of a gymnast with 2 silver. Here it is.
Cătălina Ponor (b. 1987) is a
Romanian artistic gymnast, winner of numerous medals and championships. Her
record includes 11 gold medals, 6 silver and 6 bronze.
She won three golden
medals at the 2004 Summer Olympics, a feat last achieved in 1988 by another
Romanian, Daniela Silivas. She helped the Romanian team take the podium on
several occasions, such as at the 2003 World Artistic Gymnastics Championship.
I’m so inspired by Larisa. I really thought she had past her peak. I WAS SURE. It was great to see her add some difficulty back but I never expected her to surpass what she was doing up until this point in her career. The icing on the cake was her silivas which looks so improved, especially in her position in the air. You go Lari.
