Prosport 2010. Corina Căprioriu and Cristina Neagu as well as Ana Maria Brânza and the Golden Swordsmen! UEFA Champions League for Kristi Chevaux

2010 was the year of rare victories in Romanian sport. Halfway through the Olympics, between Beijing 2008 and London 2012, the shows came with gold medals, but also important silver and bronze medals, some quite surprising, such as athletics or judo.

But let’s start our story right in judo, where Corina Kopriorio climbed the highest score on the podium at the European Championships in Vienna! The same great athlete, Jodoka born in Lugoj, on July 18, 1986, would become the Olympic Vice Champion at the 2012 London Olympics, the bronze medalist at the 2011 World Championships, and the silver medalist at the 2015 World Championships medal again.

Also, his medal collection will be completed, in 2011, at the European Judo Championships, with another bronze!

Corina Cuprio, Cristina Nyago, Ana Maria Branza and the Golden Swords!

Corina Kopriyo, who has been tefan, since 2016, after marrying fighter Gheorghița tefan, has retired from business in 2020, at the age of 34.

Another gold medal, obtained at the World Fencing Championships in Paris, was won by the girls’ team: Simona Alexandro, Loridan Yurdyoshiu, Anka Moroyo and, of course, the vice Olympic champion (at that time!), The title was taken in 2008, in Beijing, Anna Maria Branza! In fact, it was Anna Maria who put in the hard work to get the gold medal and the world title!

In the same competition, the boys won two medals, both bronze: by Cosmin Hănceanu, in the individual saber event, and in the collective sword event, where Tiberiu Dobriceanu, Rareș Dumitrescu, Florin Zalomir and of course Cosmin Hanceanu.

A very precious medal, even if only bronze, was won by the women’s handball team at the European Championships, which were held in Norway and Denmark!

Right in front of the latter we played a match for third place, and our girls won 16-15! Moreover, Cristina Neagu was selected in the perfect team for the competition, in the left inner position, our player was selected as the top scorer of the tournament, but also its top scorer, with 53 goals!

Two very good news came this year 2010 from the European Athletics Championships in Barcelona, ​​where Nicoletta Grasso, in the discus throw, and Marianne Opera, in the triple jump event, succeeded in becoming the Vice-Champions of the Continental!

UEFA Champions League for Kristi Chevaux

The big hit of the year, and I’m using that term to move on to football, a sport you can’t live without, of course, darlings of the microbes, with Inter Milan winning the Champions League!

Coached by Jose Mourinho and with Kristi Chevaux at left-back, the Italian team achieved the historic treble in 2010: the Scudetto, the Coppa Italia and the Champions League!

After, in the semi-finals, Barcelona eliminated Messi (the direct opponent of Kristi Chevaux at the time!), Iniesta and Xavi, Inter beat Bayern Munich, 2-0, in the final in Madrid. That year, Milan also won the Club World Championship!

In addition, Kristi Chevaux managed to win the third title of the Italian champion, in a row! The Italian Cup from 2011 was added to these titles later, as for the Italian Super Cup, the Romanian defender won a cup from 2006, and in 2010 he won the second title! The whole year’s career of the greatest Romanian footballer in the era that followed was called the “golden generation!”

Among them is Christie, playing as a starter in Euro 2000, along with Hagi, Gecko Popescu, Belodice, Lopescu, Dan Petrescu, Stelia, Filipescu, Galco, Dornell Montino, Viorel Moldovan or Adrian Ely, and even scored a goal against England in our first and only victory And the last one in Euro, deserved to be a part of it! And he really did. Good luck Christian! good luck to you!
