Sandra Izbașa, gold medalist: "I like challenges and I told myself that this is a challenge. If it goes well it means it's going well, if not...I keep trying. Any type of injury like the one I had stops a gymnast from training physically and mentally, but whoever has a strong mentality and, of course, people around who can motivate you to continue...why not? I saw how the girls were competing and how I wasn't there, I gave myself a lot of ambition to be at their level. Before competitions I don't do anything special. I listen to music and I concentrate. That's all. The last time I counted my medals was when I was injured and I had over 150 medals, but valuable medals (Europeans, Worlds and Olympics) I had 13. Now, I have 15. I don't see myself in competition when I would be over 30 because I like living life, not only gymnastics. I am not a big fan of nightlife ... I'm not passionate about this 'sport'. There is no need to recover lost time, because there is no such thing. If I don't want to do something, then I don't do it. So I have no regrets. I only put on make-up in competitions, it's a hobby for me. I said I would take some make-up artist lessons."
