Keeping To Herself
The media had taken to calling Nadia “an emotionless gymnast”, primarily for her passion to win and determined focus. However, the reality is actually the exact opposite as she was highly emotional at that point. Who can blame her, right? However, she did not like to show her emotions and preferred to bottle it all up. Béla Károlyi actually said, “She kept everything inside”. Clearly, Nadia was far too young to handle the stress that she was given.
Time To Restart
Fortunately, the officials of the Romanian Sporting Authority quickly realized that their decision was a huge error on their part. In order to fix the situation right away, Béla was quickly reinstated as Nadia’s coach. The pair had a tearful but heartwarming reunion, though they simply did not have the time to catch up with each other’s lives. After all, the next Olympic Games was already on the horizon.
