nadia comăneci, montréal olympics (1976)
at the age of 14, comăneci became one of the stars of the 1976 summer olympics in montreal. her routine on the uneven bars was awarded a perfect ten. it was the first time in modern olympic gymnastics history that the score had ever been awarded. since the scoreboards were not equipped to display scores of 10.0, nadia's perfect marks were flashed as 1.00 instead. over the course of the olympics, comăneci would earn six additional tens. she also holds the record for being the youngest olympic gymnastics all-around champion ever.
