Gold medal for Marius Urzica
a Romanian national television program aired last evening,
Ion Tiriac, the President of Romanian Olympic Committee, have
revealed that a pure gold medal (Olympics-2004 alike, but
Gold made), was ordered by him and will be ready next 10 days.
At a last week reception at the Olympic "Romanian House" in
Athens, Tiriac said to Marius Urzica that he deserve such
a medal (for his pommel horse evolution) and their (Romanian)
feeling are that Urzica was deprived by judges of having one.
As a compensation, the Romanian Olympic Committee may give
him such a medal, as a special recognition for his achievement.
Everybody though it was a joke, but during the official Monday
night show on TVR 1, Mr. Tiriac said that he already have
ordered the pure-Gold replica of an Olympic medal.
