More about DRAGULESCU Marian:
The current European All-Around champion, has put together an amazing collection of medals on Floor and Vault from all of the most important competitions.

He was the first to perform handspring double front with half twist.

His name will remain the history of Gymnastics long after Dragulescu decides to retire, not only because of his World titles on Floor (2001, 2002) and Vault (2001), but also because of the extremely spectacular and difficult Vault named after him: Handspring Double Front Somersault with Half Turn!

He is building a fantastic palmares on Vault and Floor and is getting better and better in the All Around. He just won the 2004 European title at these three events.

He was a scholarship holder with the IOC in September 1998.

Why this sport? As a young boy he only went to gymnastics as an excuse to get out of karate. However as training became more intense he decided to switch to swimming because it was free. His father was not aware that his son was not at gymnastics. But Marian soon went back to the gym as swimming was no longer free after three months.

Student Education: Physical Education - National Academy of Physical Education and Sport: Bucharest.

Most influential person in career: Pascu Nicusor, "because he teaches me all I know in gymnastics". My first coach A. Dumitru is also to thank for me being a gymnast".
