Libertatea: There are only three months before the World Championship in Tokyo. How's the training going?

Sandra Izbaşa: I think I've made good progress since Euros, I have added new elements to my routines.

What events do you bet on?

I'm working on 3 apparatus but if everything goes well, there might be a surprise...

Your opponents are afraid of you...

That's good. I'm not afraid of the competition, I'm only afraid of God and making mistakes. I normally try to control my nerves and follow my coaches' advice.

Japan was shaken some time ago by a devastating earthquake. Are you not afraid to go there now?

I like to be optimistic and not think about such things. I hope we won't have troubles there.

You are a very stylish girl. How do you choose your clothes?

Thanks for appreciation, but I liked to be this way since I can remember. I like to be elegant. I am quite demanding regarding clothes.

It's hard for you to walk on heels?

(laughing) Ah, no way. I feel very good.

How did you choose this haircut?

I just wanted to have a new look. I thought that it's summer now and it's time to cut my hair and give him a new form.

Do you ask the advise of someone before taking certain decisions on changing your look?

My mother is my "advisor". I talk to her every time.

Interview Sandra Izbașa
At 20 years of age, Izbaşa accepts with a smile on her face the sacrifice that she has to make for her personal life. Asked to talk an interview, Sandra talked about her hobbies and future plans.


Click! You will spend Easter in camp. How will it be?

Sandra Izbaşa: I have been doing this for 8 years, so I'm used to it. My parents will come to hit an egg with us, and to have a toast and that's about it. We don't have time for a holiday until the Olympics. I perfectly know what I want from life.

Do you wear lucky earrings in your ears?

They really aren't a charm as many people believe. I wear them because I want to be pretty, to not look like a boy (laughs). It would be stupid to think that if I get a piercing somewhere, I automatically get a medal...

Do you practice other sports or do follow them on TV?

I watch handball, fencing and weightlifting. I do better at handball, I did it in primary school and I was a pretty good pivot (laughs). I admire the girls from the national team and I was really happy that I got the chance to talk to them on the place coming back from the Olympics.

Do you know how to cook?

That's a hard question (laughs). Honestly, I don't have time to stay in the kitchen and I can't see myself stirring food. Food is not my hobby anyway.

Are you a speedy driver?

No, I drive very carefully. For my gold from the Olympics I got an orange Hover with my name on it, but in the future I will get myself a smaller car.

Do you collect anything?

I bring some fridge magnets for my mum from any corner of the world. Personally, I don't collect anything anymore.

What type of movies, books and music do you prefer?

I like action or comedy films. On books, lately I have moved on from detective books to more romantic novels, and music, I listen to almost anything except manele.

Who do you think is the most attractive gymnast?

None, I have completely different tastes when it comes to boys. They have an ok body, but they are not my type.

What is the strangest gift you have ever received?

A chihuahua from my parents. I called him Nini after one of the mascots from the Olympics.

What's your nickname?

When I was younger I was called Oscar because I used to shine more in competitions than in training.

Do you have a tattoo or would you ever get one?

Never, it would be something silly because at any corner of the street you see someone with a tattoo.

Are you thinking of becoming a mum?

Ohoo... maybe in seven or eight years. For now, I don't consider myself too responsible to be a mother. Anyway, I won't stay in gymnastics like Chusovitina until the age of 35, that's for sure.

She wants to go in fashion

Sandra has big hopes for the future. Her plans have nothing to do with gymnastics, but with fashion.

„It's possible to create my own line, Sandra Izbaşa or something like that, but not now because it would need a big investment", the gymnast explains, who also said that she has started to be more careful with spending money:" I am not like before when I used to spend all the money I had. Now I like saving it for the future."
