2013 Cetate Deva Cup: results and videos

                Deva´s ”Drăgan Muntean” hall was bustling with people waiting for the 16th edition of the Aerobic Gymnastics Cetate Deva Cup to start. I chose my place in the hall and watched the younger gymnasts fight their nerves while also waiting for the competition to begin. The older gymnasts calmly waited for their turn.

                The event started with the Category II Individual Women´s competion where beautiful and elegant little gymnasts performed routines full of energy. At the end of the day, the standings looked like this:

                Category I was next and the women got to go first. I was anxious to see the former Artistic Gymnastics Junior National team members, Irina Păun and Georgiana Gheorghe. They executed good routines, kept a smile on their faces and included a couple of skills from Artistic (the new code of points allows this) to remind us of the good old times. Also in this category, we got to see the National team members perform. Lavinia Panaiete, Andreea Darie and Alina Radu performed routines which won big rounds of applauses from the public.

                It was now time for the Category I men to compete. Although fewer in number, they showed difficult routines. Farul Constanța´s Lucian Săvulescu stood out, receiving congratulations from Maria Fumea, National team coordinator, and a big round of applause from the public.

                But the public had the best time wathing the seniors of the National team compete. They are preparing for this year´s international competitions and have already gathered numerous European and World Medals. Also interesting to watch was the performance of our group, who is adjusting to the new code of points and hoping to achieve good results this year.

                With the individual competition now over, it was time for the Groups and Trios to take the stage. It´s a pleasure to watch little gymnasts executing their skills on cheerful and energetic music and to hear the public cheering for their favorites. At the end of the competition, this is how they did:

The last competition of the day was that of the Category III Groups but I unfortunately had to leave after the first two routines: URANIA ARAD  2 – 16.600 and GIMNIS IAȘI – 17.000 so I missed the ending and the award ceremonies.

Here is National team member and winner of her category here, Bianca Becze’s routine:

                I must highlight that the supporters of the different teams made the competition even more interesting, with special mention for the fans of Farul Constanța, CSS Constanța and, of course, CNS Cetate Deva, the host of the event. They deserve all our appreciation for their attitude and for having traveled in such large numbers to cheer for their gymnasts. I was also glad to see that the organizers had a good electronic system that helped us get live scoring inside the competition hall, they did a good job organizing the entire competition. My only regret is that this kind of events are not promoted and there is little interest from the public. We should fill the 450 seats available, appreciate and invest in the talent we have.

                I cannot wait to get back to the small but beautiful town of Deva for another competition!
