Izbasa then admitted that there are in fact people who want her to leave the sport " I am sure that there are people who are waiting for my retirement announcement" said Izbasa "But i have always loved not giving them what they really want".
Although Izbasa refused to give names, she revealed the dark side of the national team "When we are competing for the same team or individually, I guess everybody expects for the most powerful competitor to retire. But I will not be doing it just because they said so, and whether I will continue in the sport or retire, I will be doing it for myself not for someone else . I've always liked to prove that I can do beautiful things." said Izbasa"As I recall in 2009, 90% of the people, gave me no chance to continue. And it is true, after such an awful injury it’s hard to get back in she perform high level gymnastics. I wanted to prove that it was possible."
Sandra Izbasa will announce her decision this month on whether she will continue competing or leave the sport for good.
