Near Sweep for Romanians in Ploiesti
(1 vote, average 5.00 out of 5)

With 10 out of 12 gold medals, the home team again dominated the 50th Romanian International, held this past weekend in Ploiesti.

Steliana Nistor

Steliana Nistor defeated defending champion Sandra Izbasa to take the women's title. Nistor, 2004 Junior European champion, won gold medals on uneven bars and balance beam in Sunday's apparatus finals.

Canadian junior Charlotte Mackie, 13, won the all-around bronze medal behind Izbasa. Mackie, the younger sister of 2004 Olympian Gael Mackie, also picked up bronze medals on balance beam and floor exercise.

Mackie's teammate Dominique Pegg, fourth all-around, prevented a Romanian sweep by winning the gold medal on vault in the event finals. The 13-year-old Pegg, who also won the bronze medal on uneven bars, was the all-around champion at the Canada Games, held last month in Yukon.

Razvan Selariu defended his all-around title from 2006, holding off France's Hamilton Sabot by a mere .050. Romanian Flavius Koczi won the all-around bronze.

In the event finals, Sabot tied Puerto Rico's Angel Ramos for the gold on high bar. The remainder of the gold medals went to the host Romanians: Marian Dragulescu on floor and vault, Koczi on pommel horse, Selariu on rings and Daniel Popescu on parallel bars.

Olympic gold medalist Catalina Ponor performed an exhibition beam routine in Ploiesti. Click here to watch a video of Ponor's performance on YouTube.
