"The girls randomly selected their gifts from a bag with
Ponor got a clover,
a sun, Eremia an anchor and
Munteanu a star."
The" Pro Sport" tabloid has asked a famous Romanian
(former) race pilot, Mihai Leu, to come also and he gave "martisoare",
to the girls, too.
Mihai, now acting as counselor of ANS (the Romanian Sport
Authority) Director, have invited Belu to join him in car
races (as a joke). The story was on ProTv (our Romanian readers
can see the replay at 11 p.m.). The ProTv program can be viewed
in US through some cable companies , TVR can be seen (recorded
news) on their
website, the OTV station can be seen in Europe and UK
(free), if you own a satellite dish.
[Update] Bucharest sport tabloid "Proport"
pretend that Belu's trinkets were "pure Gold"; they
also quote Belu for saying to girls:"I got you some
presents from Gold, because you are the Golden Girls".
