  More about Cojocar. . .
 

Princess Sabi is Romania's newest star. She is the current Junior European champion and  also won gold on the vault and balance beam, and silver on floor at the event finals.

With the retirement of senior team mates like Simona Amanar, Maria Olaru and Claudia Presacan, Cojocar has risen into the senior ranks this year, and so far, she has not disappoint. Cojocar is the current Goodwill Games all-around winner, beating heavyweights such as Zamolodchidkova and Khorkina, and won the bronze on the floor event final.

She just finished first in the Romanian Nationals, beating Andreea Raducan, sharing the title with Silvia Stroescu, and winning silver on the vault and floor event finals, and bronze on the balance beam.

Octavian Belu, the head coach of the team, professes that Cojocar is the best gymnast of her generation, but can be quite moody at times. If she can be as disciplined as Amanar or Gogean, she can be a major force to be reckoned with.
