The most wanted interview is here, I finally finished it :D. Many of your questions already have an answer in the older posts published in press Veţi auzi sigur de antrenoarea Steliana Nistor and Chinuri dublate, so I didn’t repeat them here (I know the articles are in Romanian but I will translate them if you need it).
You sent me a lot of questions and I tried to indulge you all… if I didn’t, then I’ll try harder next time .
About Stela what can I say… you found out from the previous post that she needs to have a surgery in Canada because the pain she had to her left hand during the Olympics got worse and the doctors said she has necrosis. So far she’s waiting an answer from the Romanian Gymnastic Federation, to see if they will decide to help her with the money she needs to make this surgery. Meanwhile she follows a physio- kinetotherapy treatment for her back only that the results are not as good as expected .
We hope that everything will be OK and she will receive the support she needs and if not, then she has us and I am sure that things will solve because Stela deserves to have a beautiful life for all that she did for the Romanian sport and for the great moments she offered us along her gym career.
And now… the most waited part… the interview!!!
monagym: Steluţa, tell us where did you spend the winter holiday?
Steluţa: On holidays was great, I was in Păltiniş to a caban with some friends and family.
monagym: Now that you retired from gymnastics what do you like to do that you couldn’t do before?
Steluţa: I like to listen to music every time I want, I like that I have a new group of friends and the best part is that I had the strength to rejoin with my family.
monagym: What do you miss most from that period?
Steluţa: I miss the gymnastic itself… It doesn’t pass one single day without thinking about gymnastic.
monagym: What is your favorite gymnastics moment/memory?
Steluţa: My entire career is the most beautiful memory I can have.
monagym: Mr. Forminte said you are welcomed anytime to comeback to Deva. Since you retired have you thought to a comeback?
Steluţa: Yeeess!!! But my health doesn’t help me.
monagym: Are you considering remaining involved in gymnastics in one way or another? As a coach or performing in exhibitions?
Steluţa: As a coach maybe… but I won’t be able to participate in exhibitions because of my health.
monagym: What was your Olympic experience like? Were you disappointed not to have won any individual medals or proud that you made it that far in spite of your injuries?
Steluţa: Of course I was proud of myself because I could be there, in Beijing.
monagym: What will you take away from that experience?
Steluţa: I remember with pleasure the moment I stepped on the podium together with my team and I’m proud that I had the strength to get there and finish the individual competition.
monagym: Did you remain in touch with your colleagues from Deva?
Steluţa: No, not really.
monagym: Were you ever unsatisfied with the scores you were given? Did you ever feel you were discredited?
Steluţa: Honestly… I can’t have an opinion about my scores because I was feeling something, and the judges were seeing something else.
monagym: Were there any skills you were training but never got to compete?
Steluţa: No, never.
monagym: What is your favorite gymnast?
monagym: Do you have other talents beside gymnastics?
Steluţa: Yes, I like very much playing basketball and volleyball
monagym: What kind of music are you listening?
Steluţa: I am listening all kind of music, except rock.
monagym: Is it true that your favorite artist is Thalia?
Steluţa: Yes, I like Thalia a lot and I also like Leonardo DiCaprio as an actor, but unfortunately I haven’t been listening Thalia’s songs or watching movies lately because of the lack of time.
monagym: How would you describe yourself?
Steluţa: A valuable, lucky, ambitious, optimistic, lively and realistic girl.
monagym:What are your aspirations for the future?
Steluţa: Health and nothing more.
monagym: Your opposite sex fans are curious if you have a boyfriend or there’s still hope for them ?
Steluţa: Yes, I have a boyfriend, we have 4 months together. – sorry guys
monagym: Some thoughts for your fans?
Steluţa: Thousands of thanks for all the support they’ve given me, loads of health, God bless them and may they not forget me!
