more about Hatagan...
 

Nadia Hatagan was originally named Silvia, but the family decided to name her after the great Nadia Comaneci, hoping then that she would be a good gymnast when she grows up.

True enough, Hatagan showed great athletic potential from young. She was interested in sports and after hearing that the great Cetate Deva Gymnastics school is scouting for talent, her parents took her for the selection round, and Hatagan got into Deva with ease.

Hatagan excelled in Deva and 1992, she joined the senior national team. She was best at uneven bars, and won the bars title in the 1993 Junior European championships, 1993 International Japan Junior Invitational and the 1993 Birmingham Classic.

Unfortunately, she started to get injuries that would hinder her career. The day before the 1994 World team championships, she sprained her ankle severely while practicing on the vault, and in 1995, a sore tendon left her to compete on the uneven bars only at the 1995 World championships. she required two surgeries on her sore tendon.

Bogged down by her injuries, Hatagan left Deva after the 1995 World championships. She then signed a contract with the Italian club Halma Juventus Fano. She led her team to silver in the Italian Nationals.

After that, she joined the Nadia and Bart's post0Olympic tour, performing with Svetlana Boguinskaya and Vitaly Scherbo. Subsequently, Hatagan returned to Romania to pursue an education.
