The C Score (2.0)

Some older Romanian abuse allegations

Posted on: November 20, 2008

As promised, here is a good database of some older abuse allegations, from a Web site (that I think is no longer updated) that has been trying to get the abuse investigated by the FIG, IOC and the Romanian Gymnastics Federation. The allegations are from articles in such periodicals such as Pro Sport going back to the early 2000’s.

There are interviews with: Lavinia Agache, Simona Amanar, Alexandra Barac, Sabina Cojocar, Florin Gheorghe, Adriana Giurca, Rodica Dunca, Alexandra Marinescu, Florenta Oancea. Oana Petrovschi, Claudia Presecan, Andreea Raducan, Melita Ruhn, Daniela Silivas, Mihaela Stanulet, Siliva Stroescu, Ecaterina Szabo, Andreea Ulmeanu, and Corina Ungureanu. There’s also at least one interview with Mariana Bitang.

Anyway, point is, this is not new. The only new part is anyone in America paying attention.

I just heard Shawn and Nastia profess their love and admiration for Martha on IGRadio. Mary Lou routinely does the same for both of the Karolyis. You can drag every Romanian gymnast that’s ever competed onto the national stage to tell their horror stories and it will never compete with the three biggest names in American gymnastics contradicting them. This story won’t go anywhere.

About The C Score

First there was A score and B score, now D score and E score. Where is the C score? Right here. In the form of my random thoughts about women's artistic gymnastics.
