Roxana Luca (born 23 December 1982) is a Romanian figure skater. She is a ten-time Romanian national champion, competed twice at the Winter Olympics, and placed as high as 15th at the European Championships.

Career[edit]

Luca made her senior international debut when she was 13 years old, placing 14th in a qualifying round at the 1996 European Championships. She competed on both the junior and senior levels until the end of the 2001–02 season. Her best result in five appearances at the World Junior Championships was 15th in 2002.

Luca was 23rd at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. She underwent knee surgery in September 2003 and missed the 2003–04 season as a result.[1]

Luca finished a career-best 15th at the 2005 European Championships. A back injury caused her to withdraw from the 2006 European Championships during the short program.[1] She placed 26th at her second Olympics in Turin.
