Nadia Elena Comaneci

Nadia Elena Comaneci is a well known gymnast who scored a perfect ten. She was born November 12th 1961 in Onesti, Romania. Many are remembering Nadia as the perfect ten because of that moment of her wonderful experience. Usually it is described to something that people would regard as any circumstances. The perfect setting, the perfect presentation, the perfect score, everything about a perfect ten is really perfect.

Like most Gymnast's her life as a gymnast started at a very young age. Nadia first participated in gymnast when she was about six years old. After she scored the perfect ten she went on to win a number of medals in gymnastics with Romanian team mates throughout Europe, Asia and America. Nadia managed to accumulate an impressive nineteen scores in her competitions leading up to her participation in the Olympic Games.

Nadia Elena Comaneci has inspired many young gymnasts and continues to support and train gymnasts from her home in Oklahoma. While she may never accomplish what she did in the 1980 Olympic Games, this will always be considered as "The" Perfect Ten in the Olympic History.

Reach For Your Goal

You're good, but you're going to be great. You're the best, but you're going to get better and better. Sometimes the paths we take are long and hard, but remember this always those are always the ones that lead to the most beautiful views. Challenges come along inevitably: how you respond to them determines who you are - deep down inside - and everything you're going to be. Increase the chances of reaching your goals by working at them gradually. The very best you can do is all that is asked of you.

Realize that you are capable of working miracles of your own making. Remember that opportunities have a reason for knocking on your door, and the right ones are there for you to take. You don't always have to win, but you do need to know what it takes to be a winner. It's up to you to find the key that unlocks the door to a more fulfilling life. Understand that increased difficulty brings you nearer to the truth of how to survive it and get beyond it.

Cross your bridges. Meet your challenges. Reach out for your dreams, and bring them closer and closer to your heart. Get rid of the "if only's" and get on with whatever you need to do to get things right.  Go after what you want in life, with all the blessings of all the people who care about you. And find out what making your wishes come true really feels like.

Jordyn Wieber Inspires Me

Jordyn Wieber inspires me because she strives to succeed. She is an American artistic gymnast born on the12th of July 1995. She is the 2011 All Around Champion and she will compete at the 2012 Summer Olympics representing USA.

As I was reading an article about Wieber it says that she started her gymnast career at the age of 4. When Jordyn was 11 she competed in the biggest competition of her life, the 2006 Visa national championships. Although Jordyn was the youngest competitor her big tricks set her apart from the others, she came 9th place.

Wieber has had only one coach since she started playing Gymnastics as a little girl, John Geddert. Geddert will be playing a big role right alongside Jordyn because
Jordyn is about to take the biggest step of her life by going to the Londan Olympics as the odds of winning the all around gold medal. She is going for Gold!!

Jordyn Wieber is really good when it comes to gymnastics but that’s because of years of hard work and help from John Geddert and also dedication to the sport she loves.

Thank you Vanila for checking my work.
