Romania’s 4-man bobsleigh team managed a great performance at the Junior European Championships U23 in Igls, Austria, where it won the gold, local Digisport.ro reported.
The Romanian athletes Mihai Tentea, Alexandru Bugheanu, Raul Dobre and Ciprian Daroczi won the U23 classification of the Junior European Championships ahead of Latvia’s team.
Bobsleigh is the only discipline in which Romania won a medal at the Winter Olympics. It happened in 1968 in Grenoble, when the two-man team of Ion Panturu and Nicolae Neagoe won the bronze.
