Romanian teams qualified for the Olympic finals

The qualification competition for both men and women took place last weekend in the impressive National Indoor Stadium in Beijing. Both our MAG and WAG teams succeeded to qualify for the team finals taking place this week. Giving the high level of the competition and some mistakes of our athletes, both qualification rounds were pretty tough for the Romanian teams, which need to be much more focused and to practically aim at perfection during the finals in order to be able to win a medal. We trust that they can do that and we would like to cross our fingers and wish them A LOT OF SUCCESS!
