“I don’t think he’s upset! It is excluded”

As of Friday, David Popovici no longer holds the national record in the 400-meter freestyle, having been surpassed by Vlad Stancu, who set a time of 3.47 in the Romanian Swimming Cup, a competition that is being contested these days in the pool of in Otopeni.

David Popovici was dethroned! Vlad Stancu broke his record: “I don’t think he’s upset! It is excluded”

In the end, the CSA Steaua athlete was, as expected, very enthusiastic about this performance, especially given that he revealed that he did not prepare very intensively for this competition.

Asked, jokingly, if he is afraid that David Popovici will be upset that he broke his record, Vlad Stancu appreciated that there is no such problem, especially since this 400-meter free trial is not one of Popovici’s favorites.

“Very good, I had a lot of training, finally the fruits are visible and I am very happy. It’s an extraordinary time, I feel very, very good. I’m still two hundredths away from the scale for the Games at 400, a nail. Yes, let’s hope so. Now, in the summer, the senior Europeans, in Belgrade, and the junior Worlds, in Israel, I will not go to the seniors Worlds, I chose to prepare. I hope it will be a better year than 2022, God help! (not if David Popovici gets upset) I don’t think so, it’s out of the question. Even now I wasn’t ready for this national, this week I had some very intense training and I will definitely be able to do it (no qualifying time for the Olympic Games)”said Vlad Stancu.

Also on Friday, at the Romanian Swimming Cup, David Popovici won the 100 meter butterfly event, also an event in which he does not compete very often, and at the end he impressed with the public speech addressed.
