International Gymnastics Hall of Fame legends (and spouses) Bart Conner and Nadia Comaneci scored a “perfect 10” this past weekend in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Their Bart & Nadia Sports & Health Festival was a smashing success, bringing thousands of participants together in a multi-faceted, interactive celebration of the joys and benefits of being physically active.
Gymnastics was certainly center stage during weekend-long event, with collegiate, boys and an international competitions taking place. Staying true to the Olympic and paralympic spirit, Bart and Nadia designed this gathering to be as all-inclusive as possible. From kayaking to archery, rowing to shooting hockey pucks into a washing machine, every aspect pointed toward the simple truth — being active, healthy and adventurous is not only the key to living a vital, happy life…it’s FUN!
Here’s just one of many interviews Bart gave during the event:
This is, indeed, a perfect example of how so many of our IGHOF inductees have brought to life our motto: “Where legends meet legends in the making”
