Romania: Nadia Comaneci

olympic-stamp-nadiaOn July 18th, 1976, a 14 year old gymnast from Romania surprised the sports world with an unrivaled performance: “absolute” 10 at the Summer Olympics in Montreal.

The electronic display was not programmed to show grade 10, because there were only three spaces to show the grade, so that the screen showed grade 1.00.

Nadia Comaneci got, on this edition of the Olympic Games, the perfect score, winning three gold medals in the individual all-around, balance beam and uneven bars, one silver medal with the team and one bronze for the floor routine.
