German Team for 2010 Europeans

March 31, 2010

SENIORS: Oksana Chusovitina, Marie-Sophie Hindermann, Elisabeth Seitz, Dorothee Henzler, Lisa Katharina Hill

JUNIORS: Desiree Baumert, Janine Berger, Isabelle Marquard, Katja Roll, Rosa Lynn Schmitz

Except for a medal on vault for Chusovitina, German head coach Ulla Koch doesn’t expect anything – and that’s very wise in my opinion. It doesn’t look good for the German team. But hey: Taking part is everything! And I’m curious how the German juniors will make their debut.

If you want to see brand-new videos of all the girls (except for Janine Berger), go on this website, choose “Competitions 2010” and “1. BundesLiga WK” on the left and click on the routines you want to see. They were filmed at the first meet of the German Bundesliga (27th March 2010).


Oksana Chusovitina – 34 years old – I think you all know her great achievements over the past decades.
