In 10 days the 2012 Summer Olympics will open with an extravagant ceremony in London, where hundreds of thousands of athletes and fans will be welcomed to the Games. Many IMG Speakers’ clients have participated in the Games over the years –from the broadcast booth, to the stadium, to the pool. In the lead-up to the Opening Ceremony, IMG Speakers will highlight one Olympian per day.
DAY 10 – Bart Conner
Bart Conner, a 1984 Olympic Champion, is the only American male gymnast to win gold medals at every level of national and international competition. He was a member of three Olympic Teams in 1976, 1980 and 1984. At the Los Angeles Games in 1984 he made a dramatic comeback from his second torn bicep injury to win two gold medals. Connor and his wife Nadia Comaneci continue to travel the world delivering inspirational speeches, as well as promoting charitable causes, gymnastics, and healthy living.
