Danny Oil, a letter to David Popovici, the young man who “defeated the system”

Sorry David Popovici! , Danny Oil transferred, after the athlete’s victories.

“Sorry David Popovici! On behalf of me, on behalf of my fellow media people who just now remembered that we have a sport called swimming in Romania. We’ll clean you up for two weeks. Then, if you miss a final or get injured, roll up yourself. But you’re a smart kid. I heard you on the first broadcast. Live for Neatza a year ago. She turned our backs on us when we were 16. You don’t look like the big footballers we fill our newsgroups with,” Danny Oil wrote on his Facebook account on Wednesday.

“We apologize for what the swimming pools are like in Romania. We apologize for not offering you anything but we are asking now. Maybe one day you’ll get the silver… We’ll ask you why you don’t get the gold… You’ll get the bronze… We’ll ask you why not the gold. We won’t care If something hurts or if you can still afford to train by the time other kids your same age are coming back from the club,” Danny Oil continued in a message.

“We’ll forget the hours of training, your parents’ work, etc… We’ll be interested in putting the flag on your helmet. Drag it through the water to put it on TV graphics. You don’t care about us. Sign up with sponsors, earn money, appear in commercials. You don’t owe us. Anything. You can help us in one way: among our children there are few like you, but we will drown as children. I was drowned by you.

You are superman. Not because you broke records. Because you beat the system.

We are 20 million. We’ve worked on a system to confuse you for 30 years. to defeat you. You beat us. Sorry, David Popovici! Danny Oil concluded.
