Dragoi works hard for the European Championships

Diagnosed with stress fracture soon after the Olympic Games in Beijing, Gabriela Dragoi took a larger break for rehab, but the pains came back all the time. After a medical investigation in Italy, Dragoi went also to Wien some days ago in order for her to be seen by the Austrian doctors. As per result communicated to the technical staff, the things with Gabi are going better than expected. “The doctors who have seen her in Wien recommended less effort, more care in training. They told us that the problem from her tibia isn`t so serious as it was said initially. This makes us happy because it comes to confirm the opinion of the doctors from Italy, so that we are a little bit calmer”, said Nicolae Forminte, the head-coach of the WAG team.¬†

European champion with the team, winner of the bronze medal at the Olympic Games, also with the team, Dragoi is preparing herself for the Europeans from Milan (2nd – 5th of April). Now she is working only on 2 apparatus: ¬†uneven bars and beam; she works only at 75% of her potential on beam. “What we wish for her is to go at the Europeans and to compete on UB, event where she can fight for a place in the final ; we would also like her to try to compete on beam, but it depends on the way her training will go. We don`t want to force her, that`s why she will work step by step”, explained Forminte.
