Start sporting career
She took up gymnastics at age four, and got involved in aerobics at age six. (lauracristache.com, 10 Mar 2014)
Reason for taking up the sport
"My mother took me to the gym when I was a kid, because I had horrible 'knock-kneed' legs. We started some basic steps in gymnastics and some years later our whole club started to change to aerobic gymnastics. At that time aerobic gymnastics was very popular and successful in Hungary so my coaches decided to change to try something new." (lauracristache.com, 10 Mar 2014)

Winning silver in the mixed pairs event at the 2016 World Championships in Incheon, Republic of Korea, winning group gold with the Hungarian team at the 2015 European Games in Baku, Azerbaijan, and winning individual gold, silver and bronze medals at the 2015 European Championships in Elvas, Portugal.

I wanted to prove that not only the geniuses get to the top." (nemzetisport.hu, 02 Nov 2017; melogym.com, 10 Sep 2017)
