If we were to pick one routine that draws your attention from the very first moment, this would be it. Andra Stoica is Romania’s Junior National Champion on floor.

  1. Diana Bulimar – Floor (European Championship, Moscow)

Diana could not fight for a World medal this year although she was ranked first on this apparatus in 2013. However, we enjoyed her bronze medal routine from this year´s European Championship.

  1. Ana Luiza Filiorianu – Ball (World Cup, Lisbon)

One of the most talented Romanian Juniors and one of the most beautiful Romanian Rhythmic gymnastics routines of 2013.
