   [Nov 19] B&B offer for China has been partially confirmed*

Romanian TVR1 (the official State channel) has (somehow) confirmed that B&B are having negotiations with China officials.

During a news aired few minutes ago, the TVR1 corespondent at Melbourne (Alina Alexoi) said that Chinese officials in Melbourne have admitted they are having (during past weeks) discussions with B&B for a leading position at China gymnastics team for Beijing. Present Chinese coaches will stay, B&B will only coordinate the whole team.

* is waiting for a confirmation of the TVR1 news (by Sunday), to have a word-by-word check on this TVR1 Report when it will be replayed. At the beginning of the news, the TVR1 Reporter said something like "along with" or "based on" info from a Romanian sport tabloid sources (known in the past for the fake info about Dragulescu *having* a $3500 offer to coach in US and other rumors, in favor of B&B).

[Nov 20] Both the transcript of the news aired by TVR1 and the Prosport article printed today says that the head of the Chinese
delegation, Mr.Zhang Peiwan, have confirmed (both to TVR1 reporter and Prosport journalist) that B&B's "may come to China", as supervisors of present coaches. No date was concluded (yet) for their arrival.
Well, if B&B need some extra help, like us publishing some of our "black box" stories about their "hard" attitude at team (verbal abuses of Cruella and The Mustache Man punching girls during 80's , 90's ...) , I'm ready to help, anything which helps them get the job and keep them at distance of the new 2006 team.This news can make a very happy weekend for those which really knows what really have had happened at Romanian Olympic team during B&B's era, but also a little bit of caution may be necessary: it's like "too good to be true", so don't open the champagne until we get a picture with them eating in a Beijing restaurant.

My answer to those which have said "I don't believe that news because it's from that site": sometimes, as you may have noticed, this site is the first to publish latest news; very often they are confirmed by the next days newspapers (which need more time for printing). I can't recall even a single case to have something unconfirmed.
For example, one of this "gym fans" is the one which have invented a very doubtful gym ranking system -which have zero (0) value- only the official rankings are important and only those really matter. To make a ranking system by... subtracting points it's both stupid and unrealistic. Again, it doesn't matter anyway how he did it, since only the official ranking counts. So, he is the one who lure the gym fans by inventing rankings; also, IMO, he is a chicken, too-he made a Report about abuses in ROM gym (his only work which really counts), then removed the link from the first page of his site.I rest my case.

It was also said on TVR1 that B&B will also fly to Milano next week and coming January they may start their new job. Great for Belu (if they will really got there), even better for Romanian gymnastics which may (finally) have a new start. I'm sure that Romanian coaches, "oppressed" so many years by the "dictatorial couple" will be eager to take the revenge: Gold in Beijing (for us).

...It wasn't said anything said on TVR1 about any Ponor's injury (a rumor which has *leg* crossed over Net); the lovesick minds/idiots which already have felt happy about this (one of their few happy moments, during their miserable life's) should think more.

This BBC Report may give you a better picture:

Olympic legend Sir Matthew Pinsent has been left stunned by the treatment of young gymnasts in Beijing.

....The four-times gold medallist assessed China's preparations for the 2008 Olympic Games for BBC Radio Five Live.

Pinsent, who described children in pain while training and claimed a boy had been beaten by his coach, said: "It was a pretty disturbing experience."

"I was wondering whether the western approach compared to the eastern approach is a bit different, but I do think those kids are being abused."

The International Gymnastics Federation has also promised to raise the issue with China's gymnastics officials during the World Championships in Melbourne later this month.

[My note: same IGF which "have sent" a letter to RGF Vieru, back in 2002, about the faking ages "program" which has caused (too) many injuries to romanian gymnasts. Looks like the letter was lost on the way, nobody heard anything more about it.Bruno has visited Romania last summer, he could deliver it by himself].
