Top 10 Reasons to Get Excited for the Olympics: #4 Romanian Gymnastics
Guess what? 2012 is not just the year of the Olympics. It is also the moment that happens once every four years when someone actually notices that Romania exists.
Questions for You:
Who is the most famous Romanian you know?
Exactly, they are all gymnasts.
There you have it. Romania is the land of gymnastics and people that starve each other.
However, this is a time once every four years when Romania has the light shining center stage for nothing more than talent and ability. I will certify that the Romanian gymnastics squads will take the field this year, and they will put on a spotlight performance.
It’s just what they do…aside from starving people.
I remember the first time I watched Romanian gymnast, Nadia Comaneci land the first perfect 10 in gymnastics history at the 1976 Montreal Games, and I was nothing more than stunned.
Who knows what will happen this year?
