    Nadia Comaneci documentary and interview on TVR2

[Nov. 1st] The Romanian TVR 2 channel will broadcast Saturday, November 5, (16.00-17.00 hours) a program with & about Nadia Comaneci. The interview with Nadia was taken by a famous Romanian journalist, Cristian Topescu (editor in chief of "Prosport").The program will include a documentary about the "perfect 10 Girl" and the magic moments of Montreal Games.

So sad these memories may be (not so easy, I hope, despite some idiots may want) forget soon, after the next year start of the New Code- we shall see "clever"scores like "17.2" ; "19.4" and so on. Being so close (very close- if you know what I mean- some people said) of "Mr.G"), Nelli may taste the sweet taste of the revenge on our dear Nadia, after so many years. Her bad influence over "Mr.G" already made a lot of trouble to the whole gymnastics community. With the new "fantasy" scores people will get even more confused about wtf those tumbling mean. They already made gymnastics contests looking more like circus, with as many tumbling as possible, reminding people of Mark Twain and his jumping frog story, rather than the real beauty of gymnastics.

The whole Olympics movement is now based on US money. All games are, first of all, based on TV distribution rights and the big ca$h come from US.

Also the US has the most powerful gymnastics in the world-by far the largest number of club members, largest gym-related busines=influence over manufactures sales .

The Romanian gymnastics may get "the hit" of the new score system, into their biggest National Legend ( the Nadia's 10 score at Montreal), but the US gymnastics will suffer even bigger consequences.

Confused (on the new stupid score) people will not be so willing to pay big bucks to attend gym events. Angry US people may think about sending e-mail to the US embassy in Moscow, asking them why they keep giving tourist visa to Mrs.K, since she get paid jobs in US (gym clinics at local clubs).It's not legal and this can be a good reason to have future applications denied. It's nice to take benefit from US life, not so nice to punch the hand who feed you.

Parents may ask local clubs why they keep invite (and pay) their hard earned money for gym clinics provided by a lady which have such a negative influence on US gymnastics. The 9/11 terrorists have used US as training camp to learn how to pilot a plane; these gymnastics *terrorists* are using US funds to destroy what B&K have left from the good old days of gymnastics.

People should have enforced in sports (& politics), long time ago, the rules from any small enterprise: if you have the age, get retired! It's a fact that most old people have different levels of retards (after age of 40, each person loose thousands of brain cells every day; if the "starting value"was already low, you can imagine...). I'm sick about top sport leaders who are in their 70's or even 80's ! Go fishing, raise your nephews or plane your incoming funerals (no joke, this is the tradition in some countries). In my native country , if you are like 62 years old, you have to retire, they consider you are no more strong enough to work or rule a company. In most sports, they let 70 years old people to block any reforms and cut the wings of the young leaders.

We should have in sport something similar from politics: no matter how "good" or not you are, you can not compete for a top position more than twice. (And have a maximum age to do that). Otherwise, these dinosaurs will get back the Planet from us.

Romanian gymnastics during 80's
The TVR1 documentary & interview with Nadia (Saturday) aired some of their best archive footage with Nadia. Looking at her floor exercise at Montreal-she was such a cute girl, nice smile, beautiful artistry- can make you think yourself? Where the hell did the "good old days"have gone? The ruining campaign of B&B's "medal at any price" from the 90's have left us with an almost robotics gymnastics.
Looking at Nadia's evolution on bars, back in '76, it's like having a nice cake and then...coming back to those diet salt biscuits B&B's have left us. You can name (yourself) "one of the best coaches in the world" when your girls doesn't have bars exercises? Nadia was the product of a team work, Karoly was clever enough to work with a very good choreographer and other coaches. Of course we lack at artistry when we don't have somebody in charge of it, only a lady who was imposed at team and pretend to do this.
