At the 1976 Olympics Nadia Comaneci not only made a name for herself, but set a new standard for Romanian gymnastics. To this day promising junior prospects, especially Romanian ones are often hyped up as the “Next Nadia.” Making her debut at the 1978 World Championships, Emilia Eberle was the first gymnast to have ever received this title. In her career Emilia Eberle would win an individual medal at each of the four major competitions of the era. She would also compete in four consecutive Group-1 Competitions (World Championships/Olympics) making her one of the most valuable members of the Romanian program during the late 1970s and early 1980s.
