Nadia Comăneci – 59 Years Old
Nadia Elena Comăneci was born on November 12, 1961, in Oneshti, Romania, and is a Romanian female gymnast currently residing in the United States. She has won five Olympic gold medals and was the first person to score a perfect 10 in an Olympic gymnastics event. She deserves a lot of credit for her astounding gymnastic prowess that won her a number of Olympic medals and made mad waves in the world of sports back in the ‘70s and ‘80s.
The Romanian Olympic gymnast gave the world a degree of shock when she chose to leave her home country of Romania for the United States, becoming a dual citizen for both nations. She may not be as active in her sport as she used to be, but she continues to stay occupied by collaborating with humanitarian causes geared towards Romanian children.
