[Dec 2] RGF President Nicolae Vieru (finnaly) leaving RGF

Reports from different sources says that RGF President Nicolae Vieru has told to RGF staff and other sport officials that he will no longer compete for December 9 RGF elections. Vieru is known for reversing his statements and decisions many times in the past, so anything is possible until the RGF Executive meeting on Monday.

Only three Romanian gymnastics clubs have supported Vieru for these elections, so he may want to avoid a shaming defeat in front of his own protégé, RGF Executive Secretary Stoica.

The other candidate, former gymnast Marius Urzica, is seen mostly as a B&B "puppet", which hope they may influence in future the RGF decisions. Anyway, Urzica doesn't have any management experience, local gym clubs can't trust him to make the major changes so badly needed in Romanian gymnastics. Coaches from local clubs, which have had suffered mostly from B&B's dictatorship over past decades, will not give their votes to a B&B's "puppet", to give them (again!) power in the "new born" RGF.They can't be so naive.

It's a common mistake in Romanian sports, to "giveaway" top management positions in federations to former top athletes; most of them doesn't have any management experience...and even basic knowledge of heading a major organization. The universities degrees which some of them (including Urzica) may hold are from the State Sport University, which is very "generous"in helping top Romanian athletes to get a degrees. Even if they are willing to learn, there are no basic (true) practical management classes/courses, which leads to completely lack of knowledge for those who want to leads major organizations with large budgets.

On the other hand, Adrian Stoica have at least the practical experience of the many years he worked for RGF and is the only "transitional solution" for the Romanian gymnastics, until younger (and really better trained) candidate will compete in next elections.

Even then, at next elections, I can't see Urzica as a proper candidate, he seems to be a weak person and is already over the (bad) influence of those which have dragged Romanian gymnastics in (too) many scandals over past years, following only their own interest$. The proper candidate should be a strong person, to resist in front of B&B's "coups & retreats & scandals", which I feel will not end so easily, as they pretend.
