Top 10 Reasons to Get Excited for the Olympics: #4 Romanian Gymnastics



Top 10 Reasons to Get Excited for the Olympics: #4 Romanian Gymnastics 
Guess what? 2012 is not just the year of the Olympics. It is also the moment that happens once every four years when someone actually notices that Romania exists. 

Questions for You:
Who is the most famous Romanian you know?

Exactly, they are all gymnasts.
Exception of Nikolae Ceausescu, the late notorious sadist. 
There you have it. Romania is the land of gymnastics and people that starve each other.

However, this is a time once every four years when Romania has the light shining center stage for nothing more than talent and ability. I will certify that the Romanian gymnastics squads will take the field this year, and they will put on a spotlight performance.

It’s just what they do…aside from starving people.

I remember the first time I watched Romanian gymnast, Nadia Comaneci land the first perfect 10 in gymnastics history at the 1976 Montreal Games, and I was nothing more than stunned.



Who knows what will happen this year?

  1. Sorry to breake it to you, we don't starve ourselves or each other for that matter in Romania. And, yes we pride ourselves with Nadia, Lavinia, Simona, and all our great Gymnasts. If Caroli wouldn not have come to the US, you guys would never had won anything in gymnastics.
    Stop being so condescendent about any other nation. After all you enslaved blacks for 200 years, starving them, not us!!!

    1. Yes, USA did enslave black people...you are RIGHT to criticize USA (of that time period) for that, the same way it is right to criticize the Ceausescu Regime, as well as other internal problems of Eastern Europe....it's through criticism that someone or something can evolve and not repeat the same mistakes of the past.
