[Nov 26] Octavian Belu and Mariana Bitang invented a job offer in China

According to an article on, Gao Jian, head of the Chinese gym federation, has denied making an offer to Belu and Bitang.

Apparently, B & B have been invited to Beijing for a series of lectures in early 2006, but nothing beyond that.

Gao Jian doesn't know how the international media got the idea that the Chinese Federation planned to hire B & B as coaches or technical advisors.

Gao Jian seems to be denying reports that China wants to hire Belu and Bitang as technical advisors.

The two Romanian coaches have been invited to give a series of lectures in China early next year, but other than that, nothing else has been settled.

The article:

[Nov. 24] Belu-Bitang lies about China offer, exposed on national television

          Romanian gymnastics fans opinions:

# I probably have a very suspicious mind, but does anyone else think this might be a tactic of B&B? I was re-reading an old article yesterday and it was from November 2004, and the headline was "Belu: I haven't ruled out the possibility of coaching overseas". And that was a year ago!! So it just seems it might be a threat to the Federation. (Queen Diva)

 # It just seems Belu recycles the same threats until he gets what he wants, so many times he said he is quitting coaching, then he might coach overseas and everytime the Fed reinstate him.
(Queen Diva)

 # [if they go to China] Don't let them near bars!(Rafiki)

 # How about taking some chinese coaches to Romania so that they can improve on bars??? That would be Romania's salvation.(silvana23)

# I always thought that if you could combine the tumbling, vaulting and consistency of the Romanian team and the grace, originality, form, bars and beam of the Chinese team, you would have an unbeatable gymnastics team. However, I have a feeling that B&B would just make Chinese gymnastics more fugly... as well as inconsistent... Not that I believe that this would happen anyway! (Kerby)

# If B&B go to China, I hope Confucius rises from the dead and murders them.(Heff)

# If B&B had anything to do with the gorgeous Chinese, I think I'd cry.(Gumdrops)

#Why is abuse so highly regarded in the gymnastics community? (KeyWest)

#There are no word for how bad this is. I might have to go on hunger strike or something extreme, I feel so upset by the prospects of ChinaBots (soapy)

#PLEASE let this not happen...B&B simply are not the magic bullet that gives a gymnast consistancy. B&B don't know how to coach clean gymnasts would good form and amplitude. They only know how to coach crap gymnasts with hideous form, who don't have to worry about pointing their toes. B&B would do things like kill all ring leaps and take out skills like 2 ft He Wei's layout might be inconsistent, but it is GORGEOUS...the Chinese coaches are perfectly capable of helping her develop consistency on their own. They did it with Liu Xuan...(OnoSpin)

#Okay, we all know that Beltyu and Bitchtang control the Romanian DRAMA QWEEN newspapers, so I'm still not believing this for a second.
If anything, this makes the rumors less credible, because there's no way in HELL even USUKK would let B&B touch US gymnasts with a ten-foot pole, even on the club level.
That's just not happening, so for them to mention that just screams DRAMA QWEEN ANTIKS. This sentence alone just emphasizes their DRAMA QWEEN tendencies: Romania's team was disbanded in August, and BELTYU and BITCHTANG resigned after triple Olympic gold medallist Catalina Ponor and team mate Floarea Leonida went to a Bucharest nightclub without their permission. Who fucking resigns because gymnasts go to a nightclub? B&B have run out of their conventional methods to get more power and money from the RGF, so they're having to use new material.(nachtmensch)

#If they do go to China, they won't last 6 months. They have a better chance in America, which I have a feeling is who/where they are REALLY negotiating with. This China article is a cover-story for them to get more money out of the American club/program that is trying to get them. (Matt)

#I know B&B are a pair of cunts, but they're a fucking successful pair of cunts. Their gymnasts also have had amazing consistency, and though I don't believe that its all down to them, it seems like a good bet that someone in charge somewhere will be willing to at least try and see if they can inspire the same in another programme. (chiquitita)

#And there are PLENTY of attention-whore clubs in America that would hire B&B if they were given the chance. PS: BWAHAHAHAHA! B&B going to China to only be consultants/coordinators?! That's what Arkaev did for Greece from '01-'04, and you see how well that turned out. (xoxo Matt)

#It would definately be a very bad mistake for the Chinese program. (munchymoo)
