Although the compositional season has ended for them this year ( not for the ones who chose to compete in higher level though), the little gymnasts (9-10 years olds) will have their share of excitement this summer, being invited to train for 3 weeks in the national centers from Onesti or Deva, centers where almost all of our great champions trained before them. For many of them this is a preview of what is to come
As reward for their good results this year, as recognition of their talent and potential but also as incentive and encouragement for future successes, the Romanian Gymnastics Federation has invited the best gymnasts of category IV to a training camp in either Onesti or Deva junior centers.
Here are the names of the little champions who will train in Deva and Onesti this summer:

It is also very reassuring to know that besides all this talented gymnasts we still have a lot of gifted kids training at their home clubs, any of them being capable of becoming a great champion of the future, let’s just name the all-around champions of category IV this year, Lisa Marchidanu (level 1 champion) and Camelia Anghel (level 2 co-champion) who are not among campers this time.
We hope these camps will prove to be very useful and motivating for our young gymnasts. Equally, we hope they will stimulate the kids remained at home this time making them even more ambitious and willing to succeed !
