I had pleasure of meeting him and training with him at a Coaching Clinic in Wisconsin. This was the start of my USAG Gymnastics career!
Bart Conner ~1997 One of the most famous male gymnasts of all time! He was member of the gold medal-winning men's gymnastics team at the 1984 Summer Olympic Games, Bart won an individual gold on the parallel bars. I took gymnasts to the Bart Connor Gymnastics Academy (BCGA), summer camps, in Norman, OK, for 15 years in a row! He is very involved in the sport of Gymnastics and is married to Nadia Comaneci.
Nadia Comaneci ~1997 She was the winner of three gold medals at the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal and the first gymnast to be awarded a perfect score of 10 in an Olympic gymnastics event. Nadia was training with Károlyi by the time she was 7 years old, in 1968. She is still very involved with Gymnastics and is married to Bart Conner. They have a little son named Dylan.
