[March 28] Romanian gymnastics team, back at training

TVR1 aired a news about girls going back to training and coming to the gym hall "15 minutes earlier" to start their first training session with Belu. When he have entered, they were already making their warming, and this was underlined by the TV reporter-we can believe this, girls being anxious to see Belu at training, after they were let two months with Bitang...anything else is much better.Or human.

Belu was interviewed outside the gym hall, saying that girls which have the medical agreements will start training, the other will work for their shape first. He said that RGF will buy some fitness equipment, to help girls loose weight. It seems that modern techniques will be used, after so many years when B&B used the 70's methods (they were under heavy criticism by Matei Stanei, former Ponor coach, for this, too....among many other things).

To help the girls enjoy more the fitness program, maybe Belu can bring for them one of those nice young fitness instructors from Bucharest fitness Clubs...ha-ha!

The girls were filmed on their training at floor, all of them (never happened before) wearing their paints over costumes, to avoid any close ups on those 5...7Kilos -depending on who speak about, but the real ones are closest to the higher marks, due to girls abilities to use one of their three different methods to cheat at weight-in(the "pushing with the right feet", the "folded piece of paper inserted in the proper place" and the "rapid changing of girls" on the balance). All the girls were looking serious (except a short smile from Floarea) , but Mona Rosu was very upset (maybe because normally she have had to rest, due to Catholic Easter? and she broke the rules because of the team rules; it have happened before).

Now that ROC have suggested they are ready to help more financially the Romanian Gymnastics team, maybe it's the best moment to ask them pay, among other things, for those special (IMUNOPRO) blood tests, which we have suggested since last October. Available now in Romania, too, these tests help anybody knowing in details (dozens detailed pages), the proper alimentation which may be used -or not!-for each individual. It's Euro 400 (like $500) in Romania, but it's the most comprehensive available and help the doctor make very documented suggestions regarding the recommended food for weighting loss programs.

Of course, a doctor (a real one) and a nutritionist may help the team, but since 2000 no doctor was ready to accept doing whatever B&B impose/ask for (and risking the medicine license being taken, if the doctor close the eyes at what they are doing/-or not), so we don't have much hopes for this (until they are gone).

We would suggest to RGF and ROC to make girls an offer like this: a $1000 bonus, for each kilos lost before Worlds; until then, half of the girls montlhy payment from ROC (is not much, like $200 a month or so) to be kept on hold-if they don't succced return to the proper wheight, those retained money can be used better, to give bonuses to other girls, from the next team.

Last week, Belu have already suggested in a newspaper that some of the doctors estimated out-of-traing times for some girls may be shortened. Some things never change, and B&B are ready to push again the girls...but maybe next time there is no ARDAF to pay for them or a neo communist obeying district attorney to close his eyes to evidences.

By the way, maybe the fitness equipment can be bought by Belu himself, since he had signed an official statement saying he have used the 30% imposed "gift tax"to buy tension equipment (like 30 ones for each girl, every year, a newspapers laugh about this) or swaddling. Well, now here is a chance for him to use-for real-those money for girls benefit: pay them the equipment and a good nutritionist advice's.

Add to the list some safety equipment for UB exercise learning, kind of each West club have-but no one in Romania. One of the main reasons girls don't take much risks at UB, don't like to work at this apparatus is (like in Ponor case) one of their previous small (but painful) accident's at UB. Normally, they should have-some of the girls would benefit from using, some of them don't, depends on personal preferences-special devices which provide them greater safety, when learning at UB, (a strings system, attached to the ceiling or something, like the safety at circus; the other ones-see right-are attached to the UB) . AT UB there is no coach closer to your head, who can help you avoiding the trouble. Even at National Team, such things simply don't exist. Belu should bought some, few years ago, instead paying for Bitang's furs or whatever he was doing with those money.Definilety, he is a "taken"guy: take as much, as long...
