Nadia Comaneci


At the 1976 Montreal Summer Olympics, Nadia Comaneci became the first female gymnast to be awarded a perfect score of 10 in an Olympic gymnastics event. By the end of the 1976 games, she would earn seven perfect 10s, three gold medals, one bronze, and one silver medal. Four years later at the 1980 Moscow Summer Olympics, Nadia earned two more gold medals and two silver medals, bringing her Olympic total to nine medals — five gold, three silver, and one bronze. In 1996, Nadia was inducted into the International Gymnastics Hall of Fame.
