That honor goes to Nadia Comaneci, when, at age 14, she was awarded a perfect score in a 1976 Olympic event. This Romanian gymnast won 9 Olympic medals in which 5 were gold participating in two Olympics Games. After taking retirement, she devoted her life to spread out gymnastics throughout the world especially in USA she tried to make this sports event popular participating in some Gymnastics exhibition tours. She is a member of International Gymnastics Hall of Fame.
