[Nov 20] Sandra Izbasa on modern (acrobatic) vs. old (beautiful) gymnastic

Romanian ProTv aired a short (older) material filmed in Deva. After a brief interview with coach Forminte, they tried to make use on one of our stories- on Nadia's annyversary I spoke about how beautiful her gymnastics was. Speaking about the beauty of the "older" gymnastics- Nadia at Montreal- they showed some of those "Perfect 10" moments, then asked little Sandra (stupid question) like "What do you think about Nadia's exercises, how they look to you now?" Sandra took a moment and, smiling as usual, said "Seems easier for me now." Stupid question, right answer.

Problem is, you can't compare a Mustang from 60's to a today's Honda. The last one is faster, but the first one is more beautiful and, by the way, have a higher value on the market. Same with gymnastics: you can't compare the "Good Old Days" 70's -80's gymnastics to modern jump-and-jump-and-jump again, from "Bruno's acrobatic gymnastics". The new one is more "hi-tech", but... no so nice to watch.You can't compare Nadia to anything else:
yes, my new flashlight have like 2 mil. (or whatever) candles, it looks like being very powerful, but still far from being a ...Star. You have to be an idiot (like the ProTv reporter) to compare a Star with a flashlight.The last one may looks to you brighter, but even an idiot know that a a Star.

The stupid reporter from ProTv who tried to make Sandra looks like she was telling something bad on the older gym is an idiot (and his boss Adrian Sarbu, the owner of station, will know about this and how he's wasting his money). Nadia helped them last summer to support the (looser) candidate of neo-communists psd (heavily backed by Sarbu through his station), and now the idiots from that TV channel try to make a joke from her gymnastics.

Sandra have to learn (this is not her first mistake with the press, but she is new in business and need more "parental control") that, when somebody ask her (or any other young girl) about Nadia: 1.go in their knees and say a prayer for Nadia's health, for her contribution to make gymnastics one of the most beloved sports; 2.the only correct answer would be: gymnastics consist of two parts- Nadia, the Legend...and the rest.

But before doing this, Sandra will (badly) need a visit to a dentist and earn few medals in abroad competitions. And no, she didn't won over Catalina at Ploiesti, Catalina lost on her own hand (kilos and B&B's lack of training past 12 months) at floor.

Some inexperienced journalists named Sandra- too early- "the new Queen". No, the new Queen will be named in Beijing. She may become our new little...Princess, if she come back from Euros with a medal.
Until then, less (stupid) interviews and back to work, work, and work, little girl! And you have to write 200 times: "Nadia is a Legend; I'm nobody-yet."
