Catalina Ponor is more than determined to win a medal at the World championships, something she hasn't achieved in ten years.

The Romanian gymnast is working on upgrading her balance beam and floor exercise routines. She is training a round off to straight layout mount on beam which is worth an F. While on floor exercise, she is retraining a full twisting double back layout which is worth an H.

Ponor previously trained the difficult tumbling pass in 2012 and was aiming to compete it at the London event finals where she won a silver medal but her coaches decided that it was better for her to go for an easier routine.

The three time Olympic champion will be 30 years old at the upcoming World championships which will be held next October in Canada.

Her last World medal was a bronze in the team competition in 2007, while her last individual one was also a bronze on balance beam in 2005.

This year, Ponor won her fifth gold medal on balance beam at the European championships in Cluj.
