Romania Fails Team Qualifier for the Olympics

///Romania Fails Team Qualifier for the Olympics

Romania’s remarkable four-decade long Olympic medal streak in women’s gymnastics ended in bitter tears at the Rio test event after they failed to qualify a full team for the Brazil Games.

Romania is used to showcasing perfection in gymnastics ever since Nadia Comaneci landed the first 10.0 score at the Montreal Games, and had scooped a team medal at every Olympics since 1976, including gold in 1984, 2000 and 2004.

However, they will not be lining up in the women’s team competition in Rio as they followed up their doomed outing in last year’s Glasgow world championships, when they placed 13th, by failing to finish in the top four in the test event on Sunday.
