despre "Nadia" de Ioan Chirila
Nadia a fost cel mai mare boom din istoria gimnasticii. Si nu atat prin faptul ca a facut de ras omputerul de la Montreal, care nu prevazuse decarii ei de glorie, cat pentru alura ei de printesa.
Cu Nadia se incheie "epoca printesei".
Nimic incrancenat, totul zambet, gratie si o hlamida regala invizibila. Nadia a fost un moment unic in povestea gimnasticii. Cu ea se incheie epoca de vis a gimnasticii.
Tot ce urmeaza sunt mici capodopere tehnice carora le lipseste insa farmecul inegalabil al fetei din Onesti.
