More about BAN Oana Mihaela:
Oana Ban helps the Romanian team to the Olympic title in 2004 ! She was a favorite for the All Around event as well, but had to withdraw due to an injury.

Oana was first selected in the national junior team in 1999. She had success in winning the Top Gym tournament and Junior Cup in Zoetermeer, Holland. In 2001 she earned 5 medals in the Junior Olympic at Murcia, Spain. However, she missed the 16 y.o. age limit to go to the Ghent World Championships by 11 days. In 2002, she made it to the senior national team under coaches Octavian Belu and Mariana Bitang. As many members in the team, she had to overcome some injury problems but she managed to compete brilliantly at the Debrecen World Championships, getting a silver medal on beam and a 4th place on floor.

Small but powerful, Oana has a friendly reputation. Now she is a leader in the Romanian team and the Olympic Games 2004 are the ultimate goal . Her leizure includes puzzles, computer and drawing Walt Disney characters. Quite an artistic person !
