[Feb 27] Lavinia
Milosovici's Japan nude photos-an inside story
Romanian "Star"magazine run a story (and two of
the famous topless pictures with Milo) and an interview with
Bucharest lawyer Cristian Sirbu, about his knowledge on some
famous VIP's trials or scandals; he is supposed to be the
lawyer in those cases or having a deeper knowledge about what
really have happened.
said that "the gymnasts have agreed to pose in their
official national gym costumes (the main thing which have
caused an official incident between gymnasts and RGF, but
also between RGF and the Japanese Federation), because the
Japanese people would not understand that in those photos
are the World Champions of Romania (and Olympic, too-our note)
, if they didn't were the costumes with the national colors
on them. The problem was that in the contract this detail
was mentioned, but the contract was in Japanese language and
the girls didn't know exactly in advance what they have to
Everything was fine during first shooting of the video and
photos in Japan, until the moment when the girls (Lavinia
Milosovici, Corina Ungureanu and Claudia Presecan) were asked
to wear their official gym costumes. "Initially, the
girls have refused to do so, but the Japanese have told them
that they don't pay them anything and they will suit them
because they break the contract."
The lawyer opinion on (Romanian) stars (music,
sport ) is that "they sign contracts with closed eyes,
and this is the main reason why they come to me in the end
-to protect them legally and to repair as much as possible
The "Star"magazine title on the
gymnasts story is "The gymnasts who get undressed for
Japanese's were paid 15% less than what the press have reported".
...Even less, we were told.
In the "Petrovschi against RGF + B&B" suit,
Milosovici was named as one of the B&B witnesses; she
may apaper to speak in favor of them, if the suit will not
end during next March 10 deadline.
Milosovici was heavily criticized back then , both in Romania
and Japan, for her gesture to pose in a gym costumes, inside
a gym hall, for a porn book&vide publishing house. She
and her photo session colleagues get, back then, a five years
ban from all official gym competition or gymnastics-related
activity. The RGF President Vieru was one of their hardest
critics.Time have passed and now Milosovici seems to have
a good (improved) relation with her former coaches B&B,
with them visiting her when she was in a Bucharest hospital
for some medical tests of her new born baby, few months ago.
For those (quite a few, we may guess) which
does now know many details of the "Milosovici-Ungureanu-Presecan
porn photos scandal", here is the official description
of those videos (there is also a photo album for sale in Japan,
on the same "subject"):

Ex-Romanian Gymnasts Bare All Yet Again
Associated Press TOKYO - Three former Romanian gymnasts who
have been heavily criticized for appearing nude in a DVD film
and photographs in Japan bared all yet again in a Japanese
The photos, published in the latest issue of the Shukan Gendai,
show Lavinia Milosovici, 26; Claudia Presecan, 23; and Corina
Ungureanu, 22, posing naked and performing gymnastics on a
balance beam in only a G-string. The issue was sent to subscribers
The three have been embroiled in a scandal in Romania and
Japan since they first appeared nude in the magazine's Nov.
16 issue. Weeks later, two DVDs and a book featuring them
naked went on sale in Japan. Their photos - some taken in
suits bearing the Romanian Gymnastics Federation crest - nearly
brought a ban against the federation in Japan last month.
The Romanian federation later barred the three from coaching
and refereeing in official competitions for five years. Although
the suspension only applies to official federation competitions,
Presecan quit her job last month as a gymnastics teacher at
a school in Timisoara. The three gymnasts have denied disgracing
the image of Romanian gymnastics.
Presecan took the all-around gold and the team gold at the
2000 Sydney Olympics, and was also part of the Romanian team
that won the world gymnastics title in 1994, 1995 and 1997.
Milosovici won two gold medals at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics.
In its latest issue, Shukan Gendai used some of the same photos
it had previously bought from Tokyo-based Ongaku Senka Co.,
which published a book of the photos in November. Officials
at both the magazine and its publishing company declined to
comment on the matter.
It wasn't clear if the magazine, which covers current affairs
and also publishes nude photos, obtained the still DVD pictures
along with the first batch of photos printed in November.
The gymnasts did not disclose how much money they had earned
for the first photo session, which took place in September,
but Romanian newspapers reported it was up to $40,000.
Double Olympic gold medallist and five-time
world champion Lavinia Milosovici and former team mates Corina
Ungureanu and Claudia Presecan stripped for the film. They
performed gymnastic routines naked on apparatus such as the
beam, for the film which was broadcast by a private cable
network. The Romanian Gymnastics Federation has now banned
all three from refereeing and coaching in official events
for five years. It comes after Romania's gymnastic team escaped
a Japanese Gymnastics Association ban from a contest in Yokohama
next year only because the trio are no longer affiliated to
the national association. Federation head Nicolae Vieru says
the athletes could use their own images but had no right to
use the emblems of the national federation. "Also the international
reaction triggered our decision," he said.

Three former Romanian team members who posed nude have all
received professional suspensions from the Romanian Gymnastics
Federation. The Federation issued the sanctions after Lavinia
Milosovici, Claudia Presecan, and Corina Ungureanu posed nude
in a Japanese magazine and DVD. The trio will be unable to
represent Romania in any official capacity—as athletes, coaches,
or judges—for five years. Federation officials say the former
gymnasts embarrassed the country because they appeared in
photos wearing their Romanian team leotards alongside the
nude photos. All three gymnasts earned world titles with the
Romanian team. Milosovici won two golds, one silver, and three
bronze medals at the 1992 and 1996 Olympic Games. Presecan
won an Olympic team gold medal in 2000. Ungureanu had previously
posed nude in Romanian Playboy without any official sanction
from the Federation. The trio will be allowed to work at private
gymnastics clubs, though Presecan was recently dismissed from
her job as a coach in response to the photo spread.
Romanian team saved after nude DVD
Romanian gymnasts will be allowed to take part in a top competition
in Japan, despite a row over a nude performance by three former
members of the national team.
The three Olympic medallists, including double gold-medal
winner Lavinia Milosovici, carried out their naked routines
for a Japanese television station. Japanese gymnastics officials
were so furious that they threatened to ban the members of
the current Romanian team from an international youth contest
in Yokohama next September.
But a Japanese spokesman said on Tuesday that Romanian officials
were as incensed as their Japanese counterparts, and the threat
of the ban was being withdrawn. It is just a shame that a
video like this can be made in the name of sport and create
such a bad image Eri Nakamura Japanese spokeswoman
"We were told by the Romanian Gymnastics Federation that the
three gymnasts in question were no longer affiliated to them,
so Romania will be invited as scheduled," said Eri Nakamura,
secretary of the Japanese junior gymnastics federation. "It
is just a shame that a video like this can be made in the
name of sport and create such a bad image," she told Reuters
The Romanian gymnastics authorities have labelled the women
a "disgrace". They carried out routines on normal gym equipment
including the beam. The Japanese decision to withdraw the
threatened ban was taken at an executive board meeting of
the Japan Gymnastics Association (JGA). Fourteen countries
have been invited to take part in the contest.
Ms Milosovici won two gold medals in the Barcelona games in
1992, in the floor and vault contests. She and her two fellow
nude performers - Sydney gold medallist Claudia Presecan and
Corina Ungureanu - had already posed naked for still pictures.
But their nude television performance, which has been made
available on DVD, made the sport's governing bodies even more
furious. They face possible action from the Romanian Gymnastics
Federation. It tells children that you can make money off
your gold medals by posing nude, which is a terrible message-
Keiko Ikeda Olympic medallist
And Japanese officials may still raise the issue at the International
Gymnastics Federation next year. "Even if she [Ms Milosovici]
has retired from competition, her act is a disgrace to gymnastics,"
said Koji Takizawa, executive director of the JGA. Other senior
figures in the sport have warned that children interested
in gymnastics were being sent a dangerous message. "It tells
children that you can make money off your gold medals by posing
nude, which is a terrible message," said Olympic medallist
The International Gymnastics Federation has suspended Romanian
gymnasts Lavinia Milosovici, Claudia Presecan and Corina
Ungureanu from all activities involving the world forum
for five years. The executive commission of the federation
made its decision after the former world and Olympic champions
posed nude for a Japanese magazine and shot an adult DVD last
