Paris World Cup - Sandra Izbaşa won gold!
After one year in which she broke her Achilles Tendon, Sandra Izbaşa has come back in the world of gymnastics, after she competed in the French Internationals.
Sandra Izbaşa, gold on floor! The gold medal performance achieved by the Romanian at the Olympic Games, and repeated again at the French Internationals, a major World Cup event. The clean routine of the Romanian, even though it is not the final exercise she is preparing, was given a score of 14.833. The podium was completed by the world silver medalist, Diana Chelaru (14.633) and the Russian Ana Dementyeva (14.433).
It took Sanra two and a half years to come back as a winner on the floor exercise after she won the gold medal in Beijing, 2008. Her absence from the podiums were caused by the medical problems which appeared in 2009, which were finished with an operation on her ACL. Izbaşa returned to training in the summer of last year and was taken on board by coaches Mariana Bitang şi Octavian Belu, the new coaches of the Olympic gymnastics team. "Sandra is beginning to gain her lost ground, but everything will be happening step by step", Mariana Bitang declared, confessing that she is also preparing intensively for vault. "Sandra is presenting herself better on vault, but at Paris she didn't have the right to participate on this apparatus", the coach also said.
