Yesterday in Montpellier, Romanian gymnasts Diana Bulimar and Laura Jurca finished far behind the all around bronze medalist Ellie Downie of Great Britain.

With slightly clean execution and no major D score, the Romanian girls did not have a chance in making the competition's podium. Bulimar's highest score was a 14.000 on balance beam, the sixth highest score on that event. Her all around score placed her in 10th place.

“I will work hard, even harder than now in order to seek my redemption”

Lucian Sandu, the coach who went with the Romanian gymnasts in France, told TVR “Basically, Diana hasn’t competed in almost a full year. She doesn’t trust herself at the moment”

On the other hand, fresh senior Laura Jurca, finished her first major senior competition with a seventh place. The gap between her score and Downie's is over two points. 

“We have to train harder and push ourselves more” said Jurca.
