Description

Print edition. This volume is a short biography of Nadia Comaneci, winner of five gold medals at the Olympics. Chapter 1: Perfect 10 At the 1976 Olympic Games in Montreal, Canada, Nadia Comaneci (pronounced NAD-ya koh-muh-NECH) was absolutely spectacular as she won five medals. On July 18, competing on the uneven bars, she became the first gymnast ever to score a perfect 10. In fact, the equipment that was set up to display the scores was not programmed to display a score that high. Therefore, the apparatus dis-played a score of 1.00, which is a very low score. Nadia's coach, Bela Karolyi, was shocked by the low score, and he asked for an explanation. A Swedish judge held up 10 fingers to indicate a perfect score. Meanwhile, one of Nadia's teammates told her, "I think it's a 10, but they don't know how to make a 10." Nadia asked Bela, "Sir, is that really a 10?" He replied, "You bet it is, Nadia."
