[Dec 5] Romania's
ANS President has (finally!) quit his position
The National Sport Agency-ANS- President has (finally!)
quit his position; not because of a late spark of honor, but
due to some political changes in Romanian politics (his
party - insignificant one- has retired from Government). Former
ANS President retirement was unanimously (and is a very rare
occasion to see such a thing!) seen by the Romanian press
as a person who did nothing for the sport, but a lot for himself:
he made so many travels abroad (of no help for sport) that
he should be rewarded by the travel agencies with a prize
or something. He deserve a prize" from us,too...
Romanian gymnastics, the moron did two "memorable"
things: he gave alcohol (champagne, the standard version and
not the alcohol-free
version, the champagne for children, widely available
in Romania) to the gymnastics
team at Women's Day celebration, in 2005. Almost all
girls were under minimum age (18) to be given alcohol and
all of them were top athletes in training*!
At Romanian gymnastics (women) team return
from World Gymnastics Championships, the ANS President (or
any of his lazy, incompetent employees) didn't welcomed the
girls; past two years he use to welcome at airport any Romanian
team or athlete returning from medals - a political opportunist's
mania to be in all medalists arrival published photos . This
was his biggest (and last) bad gesture/attitude, the one which
deserve our Special Prize; we still debate over the name on
it, Moron/Pig/Donkey of the Year?...But we don't want to offend
any pig or donkey.
*gymnastics is one of the most dangerous
sports, if you are young, under diet and drink alcohol before
training you can...broke your neck!
