Nadia Comaneci lauds India’s viral gymnast kids


The power of social media once again came to the fore as two Indian school kids were appreciated by gymnastics legend Nadia Comaneci after a video went viral on Twitter.

A boy and a girl, in their school uniforms, were seen in a 15-second video clip doing tough gymnastic moves. It also caught the attention of Union sports minister Kiren Rijiju.

Romania’s 57-year-old Nadia, who won five Olympic golds (three in 1976 and two in 1980, Moscow), tweeted the same video with the caption “This is awesome”. Nadia was the first to score a perfect 10 in gymnastics, at the 1976 Olympics in Montreal.
