Sandra at Nadia Comaneci International Invitational

International Gymnast Magazine published an article about the upcoming competition “Nadia Comaneci International Invitational” in Oklahoma City and also offered us some great videos from girl’s training.

2008 Olympic floor exercise champion Sandra Izbasa of Romania leads the field, which also includes her 2007 worlds teammate Daniela Druncea.

Izbasa and Druncea trained are training all four events, and worked efficiently in training. After a brief warmup, they moved to vault. They each performed one Yurchenko timer, then flipped one tucked Yurchenko, then one tucked Yurchenko-full and then multiple layout Yurchenko-fulls. After brief tests of the other equipment, they immediately began performing half and then full routines.

Here are Izbasa and Kononenko training balance beam. It seems like Sandra has a new element, “wolf jump with 360 turn”, you can see it at minute 0:59 in this video.
