In a recent interview four time Olympic medalist Sandra Izbasa of Romania admitted she hasn't watched her performance in London's event final. The 22 year old gymnast who failed to defend her Olympic title on floor stated that the failure to medal was not the reason behind it while the vault final being a short one was the reason for not watching it despite winning the title.
After her Olympic victory, Izbasa went on vacation and visited the beautiful city of Vienna, Austria which she found very beautiful.
"It was very beautiful. I visited some very nice places, where I discovered some very fascinating views. I can say it was an active vacation, since I’m not the kind of person who stays in a hotel room and rests. Besides I preferred to visit as many places as possible and drive my new car"
Despite being two months since her victory in London, Sandra still tears up whenever she looks at her images in the vault final which she surprisingly won.
"There were very emotional moments, which I will never forget as long as I live. Even at 80, if God helps me to reach that age and someone shows me those imagines, I’ll cry."
Sandra came back to training after a month off as she got invited to perform in several galas. The Romanian gymnast hasn't made up her mind whether to continue doing elite gymnastics or not.
