Nice Izbasa profile in Pro Sport
Posted December 16, 2008on:
Pro Sport has a nice profile of Sandra Izbasa‘s career in 2008, covering the European Championships and Olympics, among other things.
She says that her goal for 2009 is to win gold on floor in London at the 2009 World Championships. Of that, she says, “It will be hard, but not impossible.” She also says (unsurprisingly) that the Olympic gold medal is the best part of her career thus far.
The rest of the article emphasizes Izbasa’s excellent floor routine. (The article is entitled “The Sound of Music,” if I understand it correctly.)
Of her World Cup Final performance, Izbasa told Romanian TV station TVR this weekend: “I competed from memories, not from proper training!”
And, most importantly:
“I knew I wasn’t going to win after every pass! But it is important to know how lo lose with a smile on your face. I am not at all upset. I am Olympic Champion on floor for the next four years, and that’s important to me.”
