Someone on Facebook (sorry I can't remember who exactly, but even if I did, I don't know if you want to be named, but thank you- you know who you are!!!) linked to this little baby Romanian gymnast. Yes, there is no denying it, she has total shades of Porgras circa 2009 Worlds. Excepty willowy little Paula is also like a new-born foal- all rickety graceful limbs that she doesn't quite know what to do with. Her hands look like they are half the length of her legs and she seems very tall, even if she isn't particularly(also, I think big feet, which she has, are signs of a good beam worker). She isn't there yet, but there are signs of Romanian beam goodies to come!
And more importantly, check out the choreography. Is this not WILDLY extravagant and original beam chorey- if not for the gymnastics world- then at least for Romania? How are the flicky hands at 2.29? And there something a bit reminiscent of Haidu's shimmy in there too! It's kind of out there.
soooo........what do you think?
Her name is Paula Tudorache, and she is from Dinomo, by the way.
