Romania will not be competing at the upcoming Moscow Stars World Cup, the Romanian Gymnastics Federation announced Tuesday. Romanian stars Sandra Izbașa, Ana Porgras, Diana Chelaru and Flavius Koczi had been on the roster for the competition, an apparatus World Cup scheduled for May 13-14. Romania's participation was canceled because of "the decision of our coordinating coaches given training reasons," the federation stated.
Gymnastics is under the spotlight once again, as a new world cup is due to take place on May 13 and 14, a competition which will take place in Moscow, at the well know sports Olympic Complex. Moscow is for the sixth time host for this world cup (its debut being in 2006), this year as well being host of an event final only competition, category CIII, after Paris in March.
The competition - qualifications, May 13, finals on Sunday, May 14 - is set to be very strong one, if taken into consideration the participant list which is made of 87 participants from 35 countries, containing the gymnasts of the moment.
The women's competition promises to have valuable routines according to the majority of athletes present on the starting list, names that no longer need a special presentation: Oksana Chusovitina, Tatiana Nabieva, Ekaterina Kurbatova, Elisabeth Seitz, Lauren Mitchell, Luisa Galiulina, Anna Dementyeva, Jessica Lopez, our three girls – Sandra Izbașa, Ana Porgras, Diana Chelaru – completing the list of the gymnasts present in Moscow.
Today the European Championship Qualifications took place in Berlin which unfortunately did not finish like we wanted for Ana Porgras.
Anna entered the contest in the first division and started with uneven bars which was noted with 13.575 (D 6.0 + E 7.575), not enough to qualify for the final. She finished in the 6th place on this event.
The balance beam followed in the second rotation, event that brought Ana the greatest satisfaction, but today it hasn't been lucky for her. After a fall, Ana's chance for a medal has been shattered and she finished in the 17th place with 13.825 (D 6.4 + E 7.425).
These European Championships ended for Ana Porgras without her trying to qualify to the All Aroud competition and the reason published in ProSport is that "Ana performed today with pain in her left leg and the coach Octavian Bellu decided to skip floor and vault. "
We hope that the pain is not due to something serious and Ana will return from Berlin strong and determined to defend his world title this year.
Don't be sad Ana, we are supporting you no matter what!
