Zamfir and Mavrodineanu return at the Romanian Nationals

The last training stage for the upcoming Arques European Championship took place this weekend in Constanța where one of the local clubs, Farul, organized the Romanian National Championship and Farul Cup. This same club dominated the competition winning the clubs’ title over Unefs Bucharest and CSN Cetate Deva. Both senior and junior national teams were present at the meet, including a few surprises: World champions Mircea Zamfir and Valentin Mavrodineanu made their return in the team, obviously preparing for November’s continental competition under the reigns of former team mate, Mircea Brînzea, now team coach. Unfortunately, we’ll need to wait till then to see them compete but you can watch videos of the best trios and groups in the country, below.
