[Oct 17] Gymnastics-at-large

A Romanian University TV station, TVRM, owned by the largest private University (around 60,000 students) and with national-and European also-coverage, aired Sunday morning a one hour program featuring gymnastics.

Interviews with coaches (Octavian Belu and Dan Grecu) of the national gymnastics team, members of the team and some interesting interviews and inside shots from Bucharest Dinamo gym Club.

Dan Grecu: If the parents see their child have a lot of (unused) energy, plying around all the day and does not seem to get tired, this kind of child may have enough inside resources to become a future champion.

Dan Grecu
: " I wish that our team members will be healthy and hope they can keep going on in next years. We already have, unfortunately, some problems with Suciu (medical problems). The next year new Code of Point will bring new exercises, more difficult. We shall need new links between elements, learning new, more difficult elements."

Dan Grecu: " After the Olympics, I have visited the North Moldavia monasteries for a week, This was my vacation. I thought it's a pity to travel (with gymnastics) around the world and not see my own country. And I still have a lot of other places to go and see around the country, next years."

Marian Dragulescu
have started his athletic career with karate, not gymnastics. After only six month, he quit, because it was too much discipline in that sport, which he didn;t like when he was a child.

Marian Dragulescu: I highly recommend gymnastics to parents for their small children, in the first years is easy and can capture the child full attention. Later, when (and if) will became more serious about this, is different. You don't have much time about anything else above gymnastics. I was not so much enthusiastic about learning at school, the only thing I liked and really enjoyed was gymnastics, so...I stocked to it. The award I like most is the 2002 " Gymnast of the Year" award from the International Sport Press Association. It was a very high honor for me to be considered the best by specialists.

Marian Dragulescu: I still feel I could do better at Athens, still have regrets. I don't know what to say about keep going on for Beijing Olympics, we wait to see the new FIG rules."

Dragulescu: I enjoy my (few) free time, we have one single training session on Sunday and Thursdays.

I like to go to parties, like to have a barbecue near forest, go fishing.

Marian Dragulescu: I strongly suggest to parents to send their children to gymnastic or any other sport, rather than letting them having too much time wasted, hanging around with "the bad boys". In soccer there are too many athletes, in gymnastics, if you are talented and work hard, you have more chances to be on top.

Marius Urzica
: To reach the top, to earn a medal, you need to give up everything else, everything.You need to keep going on, no matter you win or loose sometime, just keep going. Latest athletes challenge, The Olympics!It's the contest about which any athlete dream, to be there and hopefully to get a medal. I would suggest to all parents to bring their children to gymnastics or any other sport, to support their children in doing this.

Octavian Belu:To have such results, you need to focus on what are you doing. Top results can be achieved easier or harder, depends on what your long term goals are. If you want to get highest, you need to be as closest as possible to perfection, in every single detail. Past years, almost half of Romania's medals from Olympics were due to gymnastics. At Athens, we earned 10 out of 19 Romania get. If you make the smallest compromise, the results gets down. Maybe this is our (B&B) aptitude, maybe our mean is to educate these children and only second being their coaches.
