Who is Cyrus Mofid?

He’s 1987 World Champion Aurelia Dobre’s son, and he’s competing level 10 at this weekend’s Tim Weaver International meet in Hanover, Pennsylvania.

Alas, no videos surfaced immediately on youtube. But if this guy’s anything like his mom, he’s going places.

Aurelia Dobre, 1987 World Championships All Around, Floor Exercise:

According to Gymnastic Greats, Dobre, somewhat unlike Eugenia Popa, was a stong critic of the Romanian system that produced her. But she remained involved with the sport, marrying Boz Mofid, a gym owner and former member of the Iranian national team, with whom she has four sons. (Mofid was also briefly married to Oksana Omelienchik.)

Cyrus is Dobre and Mofid’s oldest son.
