Double gold medalist at the recent Europeans, Sandra Izbaşa isn't satisfied with just that. Our gymnast, again, wants glory at the next Olympic Games.
Sandra Izbaşa, Olympics champion: ”I have passed this phase. When I was younger, I was happy about winning any medal, now it was a well earned medal, I worked for it, but I don't have to look at this success, when I could have much more success. The European championships were just one stage towards it. A stage for which we will prepare much harder will be the world championships because they are the qualifying round for the Olympics, and the Olympic Games are supreme, if I can say that.”
Izbaşa has learned to be happy about any medal, not through parties, but through more work.
“It's a normal thing, I'm already used to it, not to win medals, but with success. I am satisfied through silence. And through limits and training, I am happy to improve. I have already started to improve slightly on floor and vault.”
