Transcript of Nadia Comaneci, A Dreammaker

She was brave young girl with huge achievements that brought joy to her country.
She was a hero.
Brave, persistent , flexible, strong
Sister of Adrian Comaneci
Lover of gymnastics, coaching and Bart Conner
Who felt weightless and determined as she flew through the air
Who needed just a flat surface to fly
Who gave time and effort to the sport she had mastered
Who feared that just one wrong sneeze would have made her fail
and that she might have not achieved so much without such great coaches
Who would adore to see that 1.0 on the scoreboard just once more
Resident of Onești, Romania

The Gymnastics Almanac
"Hard work has made it easy. That is my secret. That is why I win."
By: Julia (a.k.a. Nadia Comaneci)
“I 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.”
-went to Olympics at the age of 14
-now lives in Oklahoma
-gold in the Olympics
"Of course, most people remember that I received the first perfect 10 in Olympic gymnastics competition."
-married to Bart Conner
"My marriage to my husband,
Bart Conner in 1996
is my proudest personal moment."
"I hoped to win a medal and hoped it would be gold. I knew I was good but didn't know I would be the one to score something that had never been done before."
"Of course, I grew up in Communist Romania, but I am happy to say that now our country is democratic, and prospering, since the revolution in 1989."
"It was good to be a kid because I did not realize all the things that came with the success. Going to the Games, I was asked what I expected to do."
"You should also appreciate the goodness around you, and surround yourself with positive people.'
"I like to tell young people to work hard for your goals and live in the moment."
