Nadia Comăneci: One can achieve instant fame as an actor, or being born a princess, but to become an Olympic champion it takes a lot of work
"Say It As It Is” Series of Interviews conducted by Marius Tuca
- Marius Tucă: Going back to the book you wrote, you stated such simple and such true things at the same time. For instance: ”Dear friend, you may think this is all there is about fame and glory, but you are wrong. Winning is something extremely personal, so it may seem at times to not make sense. What was I supposed to understand at age 10 of this thing named glory? The only thought that stayed on was <>, and after that, and after that again. My aim was to strengthen my body and soul to go beyond frustrations, fury, envy, so as to turn my body into a graceful instrument my mind would use unflinchingly with help from mental concentration and will.” "So, really, what was I to understand glory was, at age 10?”
- Marius Tucă: That was when?
- Marius Tucă: And winning medals in Montreal came also natural, since you were in Montreal!
- Marius Tucă: You were turning then 20, and you still did not understand what fame and glory meant?
- Marius Tucă: OK, but what about the 50,000 letters you received afterwards. What was that? I am not aware of any other sportsman or woman to have ever received that many letters after taking part in the Olympics.
- Marius Tucă: And one would have needed years to read them all.
- Marius Tucă: I found excerpts and they are great.
- Marius Tucă: And that was not part and parcel with your status of being famous?
- Marius Tucă: Of course. But those letters don't they prove that ...
- Marius Tucă: So, what did you make of those 50,000 letters? That all boys want to marry you? Did you not get how famous you were already in the world?
- Marius Tucă: Naturally. Why are you peaking at my notes?
- Marius Tucă: I would like to read back to you parts from these letters. But first, tell me how you regarded these marriage proposals?
- Marius Tucă: And they were from all over the world, were they not?
- Marius Tucă: Were you aware that you were so beautiful as to make so many people ask you to marry them?
- Marius Tucă: Nadia, but you were also beautiful. High level performance would not have warranted ...
- Marius Tucă: Your fame is still intact. You are still invited at events with may celebrities. How is this world you are a part of now?
- Marius Tucă: And you feel that in all meetings you have this appreciation?
- Marius Tucă: So, there is respect and mutual recognition in this type of relationship...
- Marius Tucă: And how is this world? Is it interesting? Do you like meeting and talking to these people?
- Marius Tucă: Do you have friends in this world of celebrities?
- Marius Tucă: You travel a lot lately. When I called you, you were in Oklahoma, but then you went to Los Angeles, after that to Frankfurt, and now you are in Bucharest. You seem like living more in planes than at home.
- Marius Tucă: OK. so this is your schedule for the next two weeks. Give me some landmarks of your work in the past six weeks.
- Marius Tucă: How many cities do you visit in one year?
- Marius Tucă: All right. And how about Europe and the rest of the world?
- Marius Tucă: What do you like most of all these things? To travel, give speeches, organize gymnastics shows?
- Marius Tucă: Did you get used with these long flights, 10-hour long?
- Marius Tucă: How can you stand that? Given that you fly so frequently? If I would have to fly for 20 hours it is very likely I will stay at home for the next 20 years.
- Marius Tucă: So, your self-discipline sand self-control stayed the same.
- Marius Tucă: Did you always have it, or was it something you taught yourself to achieve?
- Marius Tucă: Or you already had it and took it to perfection through education?
