Profile Dan Popescu - Translated with Yandex Tanslate

   Born: One thousand nine hundred fifteen

The one who gave the name to the Crack Blue. Found in 1939 with a friend in Circuses, has tempered its enthusiasm: "Why, ma, you look at it? Don't you see that it's blue (in the sense of hard won, M. O.)?" [This story has been confirmed by Dan Popescu, which has appreciated in good measure his accomplishments E. Cristea].
An attempt was made by Emilian Cristea in the Crack Blue in august 1950.
