You would never, ever have known it to look at her during competitions, but a recent interview with Romanian stalwart, Gina Gogean revealed her passion for the sport, saying she still missed it.  She told VIP magazine that if she could, she would do it all over again.

"I've retired eleven years from gymnastics, but I still remember the emotions I felt during competition."

And in other (not quite) news, the newly blonde Steliana Nistor was featured in the Sibiu 100% magazine, talking about how she has decided to keep studying rather than moving to the United States of America to take a coaching job.   Steli is study and training to be a gymnastics instructor, which has included looking for potential gymnasts in nearby villages (pictured).  She seems to be enjoying learning to teach.

  1. Gina Gogean also mentioned trying for a baby in the near future in that interview. It would be great if she had a mini-Gina, especially now Romanian gymnastics is not so cookie-cutter like.
