A former Romanian gymnast who had sued her coaches, accusing them of asking for money and forcing her to compete with an injured back, dropped her claims today after being compensated by a sponsor.
Earlier this year, Romanian Olympic team coaches Octavian Belu and Mariana Bitang quit after 2002 world silver medallist Oana Petrovschi sued them for more than $50,000 in damages. Belu admitted receiving money from his athletes but said it was given freely as a sign of gratitude and that he never demanded it.
