[Nov 29] Star Wars, Worlds episode: Clone's revenge over the Stars

We can say that the amazing (predictable) results of the US gymnasts in Melbourne are a nice victory of Karoly's. Years after they had "cloned"the Romanian gymnastics system into the US, they can get a(nother) victory over the former Stars. A temporary one, I might say, because the Romanian gymnastics have a long history of reborn from her own ashes.

The US victory at recent Worlds is a (small) revenge for the defeat in past year Olympics.Next two years (2006 may still be their year) the Romanians have to work (again) like hell to regain the ground, but... they always do.

"Not since the Soviet Union boycotted the 1984 Olympics has the American women's gymnastics team done so well in a major international competition. That year, the Americans won eight of 18 medals with a major competitor absent. But with four golds, four silvers and a bronze last week, the new generation of American gymnasts showed they were top of the world Down Under. Nastia Liukin, Chellsie Memmel and Alicia Sacramone produced the American women's best performance in a world championships, winning nine of the 15 individual medals. There was no team competition this year."-wrote the today's US newspapers "American women top medal tally at world gymnastics championships"

The above quotes can easy be used as an "B&B's gymnastics" epitaph: they (may) have build the Romanian gymnastics past years, but they have "killed" it, too, with their unprofessional attitude shown past 12 months.

We need to make a step further and start from scratch...with new coaches & attitudes. It's time for Romanian gymnastics to learn from their previous "students"-the US gymnastics, where the discipline is maintained, but also there's respect for athletes-something which B&B never heard of.
