Vintage Catalina Ponor on The Beam in 2002

Who doesn't love vintage footage of their favorite athletes?



I discovered this gem of Catalina Ponor in 2002 at the Romanian Nationals during a random You Tube search one day when I had a rare moment of free time. She must have been about 14 or 15 here depending on what time of year this was shot. Catalina of 2002 has the same confidence on the beam and she still carries herself with grace and maturity.
