“The second competition in which we start is the Juniors National Championships II from 12th of July to the 15th, in Bucharest, where the oldest member of the club, Raul Neama will participate to defend the national champion title, and for the most newcomers we have expectations for the podium. From Spinu Cosmin, who ranked 4th at the spring championship and Sebastian Stinceanu, who ranked 5th at the previous competition. Surprises can occur from the athletes ranked 6th and 7th, Lungu Horia and Pițigoi Diana, who we hope to get as closer as possible to the 3rd place and obtain the qualification to the final in many trials.
