          Three gymnasts from the Anghel Saligny Club in Iași competed at this year´s Miss Valentine in Estonia, under the supervision of coaches Cătălina and Constantin Radu. This event has typically opened the Rhythmic gymnastics season since 1995 and is considered one of the largest competitions in the world, with 1200 gymnasts from 38 countries taking part in the event.

Laura Aniței (12) competed in the Pre-Junior category (gymnasts born in 2004 and 2005) and won the bronze medal for her clubs performance (13.150). She also placed fifth in the All-around and with ball and tenth with hoop. Unfortunately, there are no videos with her routines at this competition.

Andreea Verdeș and Ștefana Popa (both 16) made their senior debut here and now join Ana Luiza Filiorianu and Alexandra Piscupescu in the national senior team. Both gymnasts had a shaky competition, with Andreea gathering 57.1 points (22nd) and Ștefana 53.8 (30th). 2013 World Champion, Anna Rizatdinova won the competition.
