Romania's team leaves for Sochi Winter Olympics

Bucharest, Feb 3 : Romania's Olympic team, made up of 24 athletes, left Bucharest for participating in the 22nd Winter Olympic Games due Feb 7-23 in Sochi, Russia.


Romanian athletes would compete in 8 of the 15 sport disciplines scheduled at these Olympics: alpine skiing, cross-country skiing, biathlon, ski jumping, figure skating, bobsleigh, luge and skeleton, Xinhua reported Sunday.

As already announced, bi-athlete Eva Tofalvy, who takes part in the Olympic Games for the fifth time, will bear the Romanian flag at the opening ceremony of the Games.

The delegation also includes about 20 coaches and officials, with Alexandru Epuran as chief of the mission.

Chairman of the Romanian Olympic and Sports Committee Octavian Morariu anticipated that the national athletes would get the best results in bobsledding, sledding and skeleton on the first 10-15 places.

"A Romanian sportsman or woman taking one of the first ten places would be like a gold medal to us and their taking one of the first 20 places would be a quite extraordinary performance if we consider how things are currently in winter sports in Romania," said the general secretary of the Romanian Olympic and Sports Committee Ioan Dobrescu.
