[Jan 13] Monica Rosu has retired, still missing the Worlds

Monica Rosu has retired and announced herself this sad moment, during an interview for Antena 1 TV aired this afternoon.

Monica Rosu (blonde, long hair) said that she was disappointed for not having a chance to compete at Worlds. Her plans are to focus on school and will go to University; she still want to be around the gymnastics world.

Monica Rosu's mother gave a separate interview to the TV station, saying that is her strong belief that if coaches Octavian Belu and Mariana Bitang were still in places for Worlds, all the girls from the team would have a chance to go there and also they would won "many medals."
[ This is her opinion, to say the truth B&B have gone by themselves, nobody have dared to remove then, they just quit; also B&B have said back then that the girls have had, for a long time, serious weight problems and they didn't had any hopes to be back in shape]

Exclusive interview: hello Monica, how are you?
Monica Rosu: Very well, thank you. Can you confirm the news about your retirement?
Monica Rosu: Yes, I'm done with doing gymnastics. We know that you wanted to be trained by B&B; why don't you wait to see if they will open the new "B&B Gymnastics Academy"? It would be your chance for you to try the Worlds...
Monica Rosu: I've heard about the new (maybe) Gymnastics Academy last days, but I don't think I will continue. Advice: don't get too deep into the chocolate & "sarmale" , at least not yet, until you will be sure about this decision.
Monica Rosu: (like laughing) No, I'm already above the "chocolate stage", doesn't interest me so much (any) more. But you can try for few weeks, if coaches Octavian Belu and Mariana Bitang will ask you to come at their new Gymnastics Academy.
Monica Rosu: ...(thinking more) Don't know what to say, but for now I don't think about doing gymnastics (as becoming a referee or something); being around yes, but not doing myself. maybe RGF will offer you something to return to gym, like a Rolls or something, since the chocolate doesn't interest you so much, I will not say a truck of finest chocolate (after retirement, of course).
Monica Rosu: Yeah, a Rolls?...(laughing). No, I'm not so precious, at least not so much. Your fans may think so, as far as we know you are one of the most beloved Romanian gymnast from the Golden Team.They like your gymnastics a lot and dream about seeing you competing this year, too.
Monica Rosu: Didn't know that. I will suggest to Romanian gymnastics fans to send more "encouragement letters" or "Keep going" next time, if they want their idol to stay around little more. We have few thousands messages for you which we had received; will have to mail them to you (and 90% of them are love related statements from all over the World)
Monica Rosu: So many?... Yeah, you rated second on this, after Catalina Ponor. Can you help us to... help your worldwide fans and provide a fan mail address?
Monica Rosu: yes, you can print the address...[edited to wait for legal clearances] I hope your Mom will not be disturbed or angry when you will get huge bags of mail (and most of them being cute childish loving messages)?
Monica Rosu: (laughing) No, it will be fine; we are getting used with this. Thanks for answering. Wish you Good Luck at school and all the best!
Monica Rosu: Thanks, bye!
