[March 11] Octavian
Belu having (minor) heart problems
Octavian Belu was hospitalized at the Bucharest Army Hospital,
due to some heart problems-his blood pressure went up ("puseu
de tensiune"). It happened to him two years ago, too.
Usually, any men at his age is more concerned about his health
and make a big deal from anything, so let's hope this is more
close to his situation.We don't want to say that it may be
more like a valetudinarian (hypocondric) person, until we
hear more about the official doctors verdict.
We wish him good luck to regain his health, but have to remind
here an old Romanian saying "Dumnezeu nu da cu batul,
trimite alte semne" (God does not beat you with a stick,
it gives you other warning signals). Maybe this is one of
(his last) signals to Belu, regarding the B&B (almost
completely) lack of consideration to girls health problems.
Petrovschi case is not an exception, it comes after so many
years of ignoring girls medical problems.
...And there is the option of retiring from
stress and leave the place for the younger generation of Romanian
talented coaches.Otherwise, no money or medals can help you
when having more serious medical problems. Better get retire
