Sara Moreno Interview

Dear friends,

Today I will talk with my friend Sara Moreno. She was born in Valencia/Spain 24 years ago. She started Rhythmic Gymnastics in 1997 and in 1998 she moved to Competitional Fitness, sport in which she became European Champion in 2003.

She started Aerobic Gymnastics in 2002.

 How did you get into the gym? 

I started doing gymnastics because I had problems with my feet and the doctor recommended me to start taking ballet classes or in Rhythmic Gymnastics. I chose Gymnastics!

What are your memories from the time you first started gymnastics? 

I was having a very good time with my friends when I was training, and I remember that I wasn’t a very talented gymnast but I was very hardworking and I got to achieve my goals with a lot of work.

Which was the competition where you won your first medal? How did you feel?

 My first international medal in Aerobics was in France 2004, I won this competition and this made me very happy because I have never won an international competition before, it was a new feeling for me.

What is the most important medal for you? 

The most important medal for me is my medal in Individual Women, won in 2012 at the World Championships. I’m always training hard but in 2012 both my mental preparation and my body were in perfect shape.



Are you happy with the results you had in 2013? 

Yes I´m happy with the results I had in 2013 because I got injured and it was very difficult to get back in shape after that, so in Cali and at the European Championships I got the best results this year. Psychologically I felt very week after my injury but the results helped me to get back on track even more powerful.

Your best competitional experience was….? 

I had my best competitional experience in Cali, because of the audience. There were 18000 people and I have never competed with so many people cheering for us before. I felt that a competition like that was the best thing that could happen to a gymnast.

Who is your favorite gymnast from Romania? 

From Romania I have two favorite gymnasts. In 2001 I was at the E.C. when I first saw Lacatus. I liked her powerful performances. That’s when I saw Pohoata too and I liked her so much for her elegance. For me they are a part of the Aerobic Gymnastics’ history and my favorite gymnasts from Romania. Even so I can’t forget mentioning Corina, her jumps and flexibility are amazing!

Who is your favorite gymnast from any other country?

There are a lot of gymnasts I can think of. Yuriko Ito from Japan, Kieran Gorman from Australia, Marcela Lopez from Brasil and Ana Maçanita from Portugal, were the best gymnasts in Aerobics for me, but nowadays my favorite gymnast is Dora Hegyi (she is my friend but I didn’t chose her for this reason), she loves Aerobics and she lives every moment in her routine therefor everybody enjoys watching her.


You do something else beside gymnastics? 

I finished University (Sciences of Sports) and now I work in the mornings, coordinating sports in my city.

 What are your goals for 2014? 

For 2014 I want to enjoy every competition. We have the World Championships this Summer and this is the most important competition  in 2014. I will try to compete in the best way possibly can. I am trying to achieve the state of mind and also my physical shape I had in 2012.

Interviu Andreea Bogati

Dragi prieteni,

Continuam seria interviurilor, de data aceasta voi vorbi cu  Andreea Bogati, componenta a Lotului National de Gimnastica Aerobica, multipla campioana nationala, internationala, europeana si mondiala!

  • Cum ai ajuns in sala de gimnastica?

La 10 luni am inceput sa merg si nu stateam locului, asa ca mama a asteptat sa mai cresc crezand ca, daca ma da la sport rezolva problema energiei mele. Ceea ce nu s-a intamplat.

La 3 ani am intrat pentru prima data in sala de gimnastica Adi Sincai din Cluj. Am fost fascinata, imi placea enorm, dar voiam sa stea mama cu mine in sala. Atunci nu faceam nimic la sala, cred ca eram rusinoasa. In schimb, cand ajungeam acasa  voiam sa fac ce vedeam in sala .Tin minte ca ma sprijineam pe perete cand faceam stand pe maini si dadeam zugraveala jos :)) .

Iar la 4 ani am ajuns in sala de gimnastica de la Balcescu unde am facut antrenamente pana in clasa a-III-a . In clasa a-IV-a parintii m-au dus la Deva si de atunci fac gimnastica aerobica.

  • Ce amintiri te leaga de debutul tau in sport?

De cand eram mica si faceam gimnastica artistica toti antrenorii ma voiau la ei in grupa, vazand ca am potential. La fel a fost si in perioada de la Deva unde, deja practicam gimnastica aerobica. Aceasta amintire m-a fortat sa imi doresc mai mult sa ajung ceea ce sunt acum.

  • La ce concurs ai luat prima ta medalie? Cum te ai simtit?

Prima medalie am castigat-o la Cupa Cetate Deva dupa vreo 7 luni de antrenament  in gimnastica aerobica. Luasem locul doi si eram atat de fericita si mandra de mine.

  • Care este pentru tine cea mai importanta (de suflet) medalie castigata pana acum?

Medalia de aur din proba de cuplu de la Mondiale 2012.

  •  Esti multumita de rezultatele obtinute in anul 2013?

Da, mai mult decat multumita. A fost cel mai greu an competitonal. Ma bucur ca am reusit sa adaug cateva medalii frumoase in palmaresul meu.

  • Care este cea mai grea perioada a anului, avand in vedere antrenamentele?

Eu nu am o perioada anume cand imi este greu. Important pentru mine este sa nu am dureri  si sa nu ma plictisesc de ceea ce fac si  daca sunt apta fizic este perfect indiferent de perioada in care ne aflam.

  • Cea mai frumoasa experienta competitionala a ta a fost…?

 Universiada din Shenzhen a fost primul meu concurs de mare anvergura la care am avut reusite si nereusite dar, care m-au ajutat enorm in cariera. Si Jocurile Mondiale din Cali unde mi-am dorit sa fac 15.000 de spectatori fericiti ca nu au platit degeaba bilet sa ne vada concurand. Aceste doua experiente au avut un impact major asupra mea.

  • Ce ti-ai propus in anul 2014?

Imi doresc sa obtin cat mai multe medalii la toate concursurile pe care le am anul acesta si la Mondiale sa auzim de cat mai multe ori Imnul tarii noastre.
