At a young age, Nadia’s mother enrolled her into gymnastics since she was full of energy. Later on, she would attend the Politechnica University of Bucharest, completing a degree in Sports Education.

Her gymnastics career began when she started studying with the local team called Flacara when she was in kindergarten. She was then selected for Bela Karolyi’s experimental gymnastics school, in 1968, becoming one of his first students. Two years later, she started competing as part of their hometown team, and became the youngest gymnast to ever win the Romanian Nationals. The following year, she entered her first international competition, helping her team win gold. Over the next few years, she continued in many competitions, and won the all-around gold at the Junior Friendship Tournament (Druzhba). At the age of 13, she had her first international success, nearly sweeping the entire 1975 European Women’s Artistic Gymnastics Championships, in which she won gold medals in every event except the floor exercise.

In 1976, Comaneci joined the inaugural American Cup in which she received a rare scores of 10, completing routines without any deductions. She made history later in the 1976 Summer Olympics, when she was awarded the first perfect 10 in gymnastics thanks to her routine on the uneven bars. She would then earn six additional 10s and would win a gold medal for the individual all-around as well as the balance beam, becoming the first Romanian gymnast to win the Olympic all-around title, and the youngest Olympic gymnastics all-around champion. It’s no longer possible to break this record, as the qualifications for the Olympic Games have changed re- age. In 1977, Nadia successfully defended her European all-around title, however, her performance dropped after she was separated from her longtime coaches the Karolyi. She returned to him after a poor performance, and would then win her third consecutive all-around title. She was then selected for the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow, in which she would go on to win two gold medals and two silver medals.

In 1981, she made an official tour of the United States called “Nadia ‘81”, and still went to the 1984 Summer Olympics even after her coaches had defected; however, she did not compete but only watched. This led her to officially retire from the sport due to the government preventing her from leaving Romania. However, in 1989, she defected with a group of other Romanians, overland across Europe. Later on, after perestroika, Nadia would become a leader in the world of gymnastics and served as the honorary president of the Romanian Gymnastics Federation. She’s still involved with the Olympic Games, and even provided television commentary for several events.

For her personal life, it is known that Nadia married Bart Conner in 1996, and they have a son.. Comaneci also does a lot of charity work, and helped fund the construction of the Nadia Comaneci Children’s Clinic. She’s also involved with The Special Olympics.

#Quote
1One of the most difficult times in my life was when I escaped from Romania in November of 1989.
2I don't run away from a challenge because I am afraid. Instead, I run toward it because the only way to escape fear is to trample it beneath your feet.
3Do not pray for an easy life, pray to be a strong person.
