Asiana Lida Peng (born January 21 in Deva) is an elite Romanian gymnast. Her mother is Romanian and her father is Chinese. She trains at CNS Cetate Deva, and is coached by former World and European Champion Gina Gogean.

Early Life

In 2009, a Romanian magazine reported that Peng and her parents were threatening to take her to Europe or China to be trained because the Deva school couldn't provide her with a scholarship for her tuition, training and board at the school. Her mother, who is unemployed, claimed she could not afford the monthy 320 lei and was planning to take her from the school to another country who will give her a scholarship. Deva director Adrian Liga called the threat emotional blackmail, and claimed that the school was powerless financially to help. The matter has since been resolved.

Junior Career

Peng competed at the Romanian School Nationals, winning balance beam gold, team and uneven bars silver, and placed eighth in the all-around. She won another team silver at the Romanian "Little Girls" Nationals, and placed fourth on bars, fifth on beam, and ninth in the all-around.

Peng made her international debut at the Alden Adria Cup in Austria, winning bronze in the all-around. She also swept the DKMT Cup, and won floor exercise gold, all-around silver, vault and uneven bars bronze, and placed fifth on balance beam at the Krstic & Dzelatovic Memorial.

Peng competed at the Romanian School Nationals, winning vault silver and all-around, uneven bars, and floor exercise bronze, and went on to win all-around bronze at the Alden Adria Cup.
