From the cover: “ If there were such a thing as an elder stateswoman in women’s gymnastics today, Nadia Comaneci would win that title as readily as she once won gold medals. Olga Korbut came before her, and many other medalists would follow, but none has ever been as dominant in winning the hearts of millions around the world. With grit and determination, Nadia Comaneci ushered in a new era for women’s sports, one where young girls could vault into the arena of super-stardom. Even today, almost thirty years after her greatest triumphs, you need only mention the word “Nadia” and gymnastics fans know instantly whom you are talking about.
