LOS ANGELES – The 15th Annual Sports Legends Awards, presented
by The Paralysis Project of America, will honor three-time
Olympic gold medalist Karch Kiraly (USA) in ceremonies to
be held Saturday, Feb. 25, at The Omni Hotel in Los Angeles.
Other sports legends to be honored include gymnastics greats
Bart Conner (USA) and Nadia
Comaneci (Romania), pro football's Willie Davis (Green
Bay Packers), Olympic swimming's Donna de Varona (USA), and
horse racing's Alex Solis (Panama).
Comaneci - The Perfect Ten
While growing up as a gymnast in Palatine, Michele Hernandez
was surrounded by Nadia
Comaneci fans. Comaneci
was synonymous with "10" back in 1976, when the Romanian teen
hit for perfection on the uneven bars at the Summer Olympics
in Montreal. "She was great, no doubt," says Hernandez, an
'87 Fremd graduate and three-time state floor-exercise champ.
"Everybody was talking about Nadia,
about what she had accomplished, about what she meant to the
sport. But I wanted to be like Lori Erickson. She had elegance,
grace, the best demeanor. She was ... it."

instructor gets prison sentence for molesting two boys
A Mesa gymnastics instructor has been sentenced to 6 1/2 years
in prison in the molestation case of two boys he taught. Police
arrested David Pyles in June after the parents of one of the
boys came forward. He pleaded guilty on Jan. 10 to two counts
of attempted molestation of a child.
Pyles faced a five-year minimum sentence Friday in Maricopa
County Superior Court under the plea deal because he had two
victims, according to prosecutors. Pyles, who worked at USA
Gymnastics, said he recognized he had a problem and tried
to get counseling. He even quit a previous coaching job to
avoid molesting children.

is a word Rakow embodies
Nadia Comaneci, the keynote speaker at Thursday's National
Girls and Women in Sports Day Luncheon, finished her speech
with a motto she said she tries to live by. "Don't pray
for an easy life," the former Olympic gymnast said.
"Pray to be a strong person." It is a philosophy
embodied by Whiteland High School senior Amanda Rakow, who
received the Award of Courage during the luncheon at Conseco
Fieldhouse, which was hosted by the National Federation of
High School Associations. About 380 athletes, coaches and
administrators attended the event.
During her keynote address, Comaneci, 44, spoke about her
experiences as an Olympian, earning the first perfect 10 and
the importance of sports. "While I was learning to keep my
balance on the beam, I was learning to keep my balance in
life," Comaneci said. "Sports are the best arena to
get tools that will help you succeed in life."

Gymnastics coaches Bela and Martha Karolyi, who live
on a ranch near New Waverly, also made the class. In receiving
the honor, the Karolyis, who defected from Romania in 1981,
expressed great admiration for the city and state they adopted
25 years ago. "When we came to the United States, we had to
fight through lots of obstacles," Bela Karolyi said. "Finally,
someone said come to Texas, and that's the place I dreamed
of being because of the great John Wayne. The warmth and welcome
of Houston has been very pleasing."

by the slight Romanian girl twice my age who could fly, flip,
twist and stick her landings with a grin that stretched from
ear to ear. As she flew through the air, my heart flew with
her, hoping she wouldn't fall off the balance beam, miss an
uneven bar or overstep during the sweeping floor exercise.
She rarely did. Nadia
Comaneci remains arguably one of the best-known Olympic
athletes in modern times. In 1976, the disciplined 14-year-old,
under the rigid tutelage of coach Bela Karolyi, became the
first Olympic gymnast to receive a perfect score of 10, a
feat she performed seven times. She also earned three gold
medals, a silver medal and a bronze medal. She was a star.

"The frog," a variation of this last method, was used by Romanian

Iancu, a student at RVC and a bartender-waitress at Octane
InterLounge in downtown Rockford, has had athletic dreams
of her own. “I started gymnastics when I was 4 years old in
Romania,” she says. “I always dreamed of performing in Cirque
du Soleil,” a traveling company of professional gymnasts,
tumblers and circus acts. As for her loyalties in the Olympics,
Iancu admits to at least a bit of conflict. “I’m a proud Romanian
and a proud American,” she says. “But yes, a lot of my heart
belongs to where I came from.” She says she’d be “very torn”
in the event of a matchup between athletes from Romania and
the United States. “I’d like to think I’d be rooting for whichever
team is the better,” she says. “But I don’t know. In my heart,
I support the people from Romania, but I also support America.”

the camera while changing clothes. Anthony Vankirk could have
received up to 16 months in prison, but he received a lighter
sentence after pleading no contest in November to a felony
count of eavesdropping and two misdemeanor counts of child

which he underwent three months of psychological exams, and
was released. Downey Superior Court Commissioner Burt Barnett

When John Carroll University student Dominique Moceanu’s parents
immigrated from there, they brought that dream to the U.S.

their daughter straight to the gold medal. Moceanu’s gymnastics
career began when she was just three years old. Within a few
years she knew gymnastics was the thing for her. "By the time
I was eight or nine, I was in the gym for about 12 hours a
day," Moceanu said. "My mom had to pull me out."
...Moceanu worked hard and made sacrifices to achieve her
Olympic dream, and she encourages others to do the same. She
said that working toward the Olympics is a long journey that
requires a lot of work. Her words of advice: "Don’t forget
the journey because it is just as important as the success."
