about Romania's new star (and future leader)

"The ideal is for Larisa to go to New York prepared to challenge Jordyn without injuring herself. She also needs to beat the 60 points barrier soon.
These are overwhelming expectations, yet Iordache has demonstrated repeatedly, in the last four or five years since she emerged on the international scene, that she has what it takes.
No, I don’t expect Larisa to beat Jordyn Wieber this weekend. But I do believe that I will be again amazed by her explosiveness and presence. Why would this weekend be any different?
She has not yet shown fear, self doubt or physical weakness.
Larisa was never a cool kid.  She is not a rebel, nor a ballerina, yet you can’t take your eyes off her. Because she owns everything she does and she loves every minute of it."
