[April 25] Eremia
and Rosu may compete at Euros on their own risk
Eremia and Monica
Rosu didn't get the medical agreement for competing
at Euros. After the last week medical tests, the doctors have
decided their health condition does not allow them to compete.
The news was aired first by Romanian Antena
1 TV station on their afternoon (4 p.m. o'clock) sport new
bulletin and later confirmed during "Fanatik Sport"
program at Prima TV station in the evening.
Other sources says that tomorrow the doctors will exam
Rosu and Eremia
again, after the girls have "expressed their
wish to compete on their own risk"-signing a release
form that they do this on their own risk. If a serious medical
exam conclusion can be reversed based on the patient own wishes,
then we may face a World Sensational Discovery: the self-indicted
cure/recovery ! As\much as we want to believe it, we rather
believe that girls long term health interest should be taken
into doctors consideration, and not *their own wish* to compete
Looks more like somebody want to avoid any other suit in the
future and hide after the girls "own wish" to compete.
After the Marinescu case, Bitang has used a small book where
she have recorded all girls "agreement"for training,
daily, especially for those with medical problems. Being under
coaches influence for many years, facing the risk to loose
many years of hard training and not being able to understand-because
of the age, lack of info and nearby adults influences-the
real situation, any girl from the team most likely to sign
such "release form " ,as many did in the past.
It seems like the doctors from INMS (National Sport Health
Institute) doesn't want any more to take the blame for others
mistakes and want to do their job for real, after may years
when B&B have silently pushed them for decisions or simply
have ignored them, pushing girls far more than necessary.
The big number of serious medical during past 10 years, (we
have reported about the recent Petrovschi counting in the
Romanian press: 14 cases during past four years only), especially
since Bitang came at team, with her intolerance on girls medical
problems, speaks for itself.
