Several European competitions are scheduled for April, and Romanian delegations have grabbed very good results and actually scooped a number of medals. Most medals were grabbed at the European Weightlifting Championships hosted by Yerevan, Armenia. Although the competition is scheduled to end on April 23, Romanian athletes have already won 11 medals, six of which are gold. On Saturday, in the 49-kg category, Mihaela Cambei won gold in the snatch event with 92 kilograms, in clean and jerk with 106 kilograms and in total with 198 kilograms. She also set two new European records in the snatch and total events. Also on Saturday, in the 45-kg category, Cosmina Pană won two silver medals, in the snatch and total events. The best results that day were grabbed by Andreea Cotruța, who represented Romania in the 55-kg category. Our athlete won gold in the snatch event with 91 kilograms, in the clean and jerk event with 110 kilograms, missing one attempt in each event, and won the total event with 201 kilograms. Also on Sunday, in the men's competition, Valentin Iancu won bronze in the snatch event and silver in the clean and jerk and total events in the 55-kg category. On Wednesday, the several-time world and European champion Loredana Toma will compete in the 71-kg category. The objective set for the Romanian delegation was four medals. It's also worth mentioning that the World Championships in Yerevan is one of the five competitions Romanian athletes can choose to take part in if they want to compete at the 2024 Paris Olympics. All weightlifters must compete in at least three out of the five events.

Our Romanian gymnasts also have their eyes set on the Olympic Games to be hosted by France next year, as last weekend they competed in the European Championships hosted by Antalya, Turkey. The men's team ranked 11 in the team event, while the women's team ranked 5, which guarantees qualification to the World Championships to be hosted this autumn by Antwerp, Belgium. This event will decide which teams will qualify to the Olympic Games. It's worth noting in this respect that Romania has qualified to the gymnastics event at the Olympic Games since 2012. In the latest European Championships in Turkey, Sabrina Voinea won bronze in the floor event and ranked 4th in the vault final. In the men's competition, Gabriel Burtănete ranked 4th in the vault final, while Andrei Muntean ranked 4th in the parallel bars event. (VP)
