[March 30] Catalina Ponor, *first* boyfriend and love story
Our "cover girl" Catalina Ponor" makes- again! the 1st page, this time with her first (known by those amateur journalists, ha-ha!) boyfriend & her 1st (*official*) love story.
Isn't she a beauty or what?...The "VIP" cover of the today's Bucharest edition, with Cata&her boyfriend photos covering first half page of the magazine.
The Bucharest weekley tabloid "VIP"** (see bottom of page) printed in the today edition a story about Catalina Ponor and her first boyfriend (first in their minds, but we shall not spoil their pleasure and will...reset our "counter"...This time only, for few more days).
A short resume of the story was printed by the sport tabloid "Prosport", too, in their today edition:
"Ponor and Cosmin Popescu, a member of the junior gymnastics team had been seen together in Azuga (a mountain resort). At 17 and ½ Catalina, aside from being famous, is a beautiful adolescent. At her age it is normal to experience one’s first romantic feelings like a first kiss, and walks in the park."
"Both Catalina and Cosmin are professional athletes and both are gymnasts. Popescu is 19 and while still being a junior is being remarked by his coach, Dan Grecu, as being an athlete with a lot of promise. The relationship between the two took flight but was soon discovered. Because he didn’t want the press to print false stories about them Cosmin acknowledged their relationship to VIP. “Yes, we were together but I don’t want to say anything more about these things” said Cosmin who spent his Christmas alongside Catalina and her family at Azuga. Although both athletes maintain that their relationship was in the past their teammates speak to the contrary. For them gymnastics remains their priority but they still make time to talk to each other often."
Among gymnasts, Andreea Raducan's first boyfriend (and still known as her boyfriend , already? "former"according to a yesterday journal***) was the brother of a gymnasts; Oana Petrovschi first boyfriend was an athlete, too (they broke up two weeks ago); Silvia Stroescu boyfriend is an athlete, also. Seems like being so close guarded in the past inside Deva walls and having few opportunities to meet/know boys of their ages, former gymnasts have their love stories close to their training gym hall.
**(The "VIP"tabloid is *very* close to B&B, so the -already famous herself-Catalina's mother will know where this come from...you know what I mean)
*** Ziarul: "Astfel, fosta multipla campioana Andreea Raducan a avut si ea o relatie, de lunga durata, cu un gimnast, Bogdan Orzata, fratele mai cunoscutului component al echipei lui Dan Grecu, Rares".
translation:..."Andreea Raducan have had, too, a long term relationship with a former gymnasts, Bogdan Orzata...."
