"The training ground is not a football field. It is a cathedral of sports. If you enter it, you step on your toes. If you have other thoughts, get lost because your ears might get twisted around here."
Iosif Sîrbu was the first Romanian athlete to win a medal at the 1952 Olympic Games in Helsinki. He was a shooter, achieving remarkable results, scoring a perfect result of 400 points. After the Olympics, the vision in the right eye begins to degenerate, being thus forced to train the other eye. He died at the age of 39 by suicide, for reasons still unknown.
