A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF THE ROMANIAN ARTISTIC GYMNASTICS RESULTS DURING THE LAST WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS
The aim of this paper was to conduct a comparative study on the evolution of the high
performance results achieved by the Romanian artistic gymnastics male and female teams, during
the last two editions of the World Championships, taking into consideration that this would also
identify their preparation stage for the London Olympic Games in 2012.
I started this research with a general view of the Romanian gymnasts' participation in
World Championships along the years, in order to better identify their progress.
By doing this comparison between our teams' participation at the two international
competitions, we can see that Romanian gymnastics passes through a period of moderate
performances, as the boys are concerned, but true especially for the girls, due to generation
changes in the new national junior teams.
