[August 24] Oana Ban, "Honorable Citizen of Cluj Napoca"

 Oana Ban has received today the title "Honorable Citizen if Cluj Napoca" -her hometown.

The title was awarded by Mr.Emil Boc, the Mayor of Cluj Napoca and the President of the most influent (and ruling) party in Romania, the Democratic Party.

Oana Ban has also get promises form the municipal council for an apartment in the one of the new (and up to date buildings) blocks to be build by the council ("ANL" apartments in Romania are the only one build by the State which are closer to Western standards.

Oana Ban also gave some presents to the Cluj Mayor -a personalized photo tie with her image and to the municipal council -an album with images of Oana competing in Anaheim, photos of the American photographer Tom Theobald, a collection of CD's with Oana in different contests and some personalized pencils for the Mayor "to use them for writing down the Cluj citizens problems".

Oana Ban is the only gymnast from the Athens Gold team which didn't get a proper reward from her gymnastics club (Cetate Deva Club).

Instead of Euros 26 500 from the club (like $30 000), she get only 50 millions lei (like $1700) through her former coach Belu -who didn't care to protect his former gymnast interest in front of Deva Club, from obvious reasons: his work & life (they share same Bucharest villa) partner, Mrs.Bitang, is formally a Deva Club employee...
No wonder that Cetate Deva gymnastics club didn't have much students for last week selection for gymnastics. With such poor consideration for their own Olympic champion, why should any parent bother send their children there? There are plenty other (better) clubs around the country, with good managers able to reward their athletes (like in Constanta).
