Nicu Rotaru multiplu campion si alpinist de top aduce steagul Romaniei pe cele mai inalte culmi

  .   GLW: CIne este sportivul Nicu Rotaru, as vrea sa te introduci in cateva cuvinte! NR :Ma numesc Nicu Rotaru,am 46 de ani si vreau "sa ma prezint" Am practicat rugby 5 ani dar in urma unor multiple fracturi a trebuit sa renunt la acest minunat sport si sa continui pentru ca simteam ca pot mai mult. De notat ca in anul 1991 am iesit vice campion national cu echipa Asadar,sala de forta a devenit a doua casa a mea,si incepand din anul 1992 nu mai intrerupt antrenamentele.... Curand au aparut si rezultatele fiind multiplu medaliat la campionatele nationale,iar in anul 2007 succesul s-a conturat in titlul de campion balcanic la categoria +100 kg culturism. In urmatorul an am vrut o schimbare si am schimbat strategia de antrenament,respectiv in 2008 am castigat titlul de cel mai puternic om din Romania GLW: De unde vine  pasiunea si inspiratia pentru alpinism?    NR:  Am descoperit alpinismul si dragostea de munte..... Era o pasiune mai veche care am reusit sa o pun in practica
