LTTWho is Nadia Comaneci?

She is a gymnast from Romania who competed during the 1976 Olympic Games in Montreal.

Comaneci first received her perfect 10 score on the uneven parallel bars and continued to receive the maximum mark 7 times during the said Games.

She had won a total of 9 Olympic medals [1976 Montreal Games and 1980 Moscow Games]. And a total of 4 Worlds medals, 2 gold and 2 silver, during the 1978 and 1979 World Championships.

Comaneci stepped into the limelight during the 1975 European Championships, where she won 4 gold medals. She retired after her victory in the 1981 World Student Games due to a natural physical development that inhibited her performance.
