Romania, Will They Make it?

Bea Gheorghisor posted the best analysis I’ve seen, so far.

On the 16th of March, the provisional team of gymnasts to compete in Rio in April was announced:

Catalina Ponor, Diana Bulimar, Anamaria Ocolisan, Silvia Zarzu, Dora Vulcan, Laura Jurca; the reserve will be Anda Butuc, while the coaches joining them are Lucian Sandu, Adela Popa, Maria Fumea.

This is similar to the list of gymnasts that were set to compete in Glasgow last October. The notable changes are: the swap of Catalina Ponor and Larisa Iordache, the addition of Dora Vulcan, the absence of Andreea Iridon. …

Considering the team scores from Glasgow Worlds, it looks like a total of 221 points in a 5 up 4 count competition will guarantee the qualification. But this means an average of 13.875 per routine. There is also the added challenge of competing in the first subdivision at the Test Event.

In conclusion, they will need to be as close to perfection as possible.

Romania, Will They Make it?

Romania starts on Bars. If they survive their worst apparatus, they have a good chance. Even without Larisa Iordache.
