[Oct 7] Marian
Dragulescu is back in shape...but facing the competitors
After his US (almost) failure- but good life lesson ("dogs
don't walk with pretzel on their tails"-Romanian saying),
"marocanul" come back to train, even harder than
before. "He even stay after program, when the other are
gone" says source close to the team. Dragulescu is trying
to surprise his competitors, by preparing a strong exercise
at horizontal bar, an exercise with staring value from "10".
He also have two good vaults (from "10", too). "He
still have to work more to finish his floor exercise"-
said coach Dan Grecu in an interview for TVR1.
But the "King's team" (and playboy,too) days at
the male team are almost gone, with the new (and "hungry"
for glory and rewards) boys coming harder.
The young Flavius Coti from the junior team has won the AA
on the Romania-Spanish contest, despite the presence of Razvan
Selariu and European champion Rafael Martinez.This mean Dragulescu
has to fight for his place on the Worlds team for the first
time. Competition is good sometime and I'm sure we shall not
hear any more spicy stories with marocanul before Worlds;
the days with night parties and girls seems to be gone for
him...for the moment.
By the way, Marian
Dragulescu made a "Family Man" appearance at
a Bucharest party last week. OK, have to admit it was a...Jack
Daniel (yeah, the "guy" from that nice bottle) anniversary
-the 155 one, a ...long and successful live! His blonde (long
hair) and beautiful wife Larisa has come, with their daughter,
too! It was their first public appearance in the Bucharest
I'm not sure this was the most appropriate type of event to
bring your wife & little daughter, but they made a nice
couple (can't say family because Marian still leave his options
opened, by not marring -yet?-the nice blonde).
