[March 25] Cactus Award for Bela Karolyi and wife Martha Karolyi
    30 years ("better later than never") after introducing the most cruel, brutal and abusive, Soviet-inspired gymnastics training system in Romania, Bela Karolyi and wife Martha got the "deserved" recognition: "The Platinum Cactus Award" from the most popular webiste (Google) about Romanian gymnastics: www.romanian-gymnastics.com.
   We wanted to be the firsts to "honor" Karolyi's achievements in Romanian gymnastics, after he complained in an interview for a Bucharest tabloid that he never got an Award in Romania.
   This first announced special platinum Award is unique because Karolyi husbands were, for a decade, a unique pair of coaches: their "training" methods and children's food deprivation exceeds by far those from Nazi concentration camps and will be included one day into the Black Book of Gymnastics.
   Unfortunately, 30 years later, Bela Karolyi's "legacy" in Romania still produce victims, many young coaches, money-and-glory-hungry , using same "old and proven good" methods. We can not have a real change and progress in Romanian gymnastics, before we know the truth about the past; actually, most people (including journalists and former gymnasts) knows the truth but are afraid to speak or prefer to profit form the system rather than to fight against it.
