In a gymnasium in Great Britain, Bart Conner did what he's been doing since 1979: sharing his knowledge of gymnastics at the world champion level with Special Olympics athletes aspiring to do the same.
Using a little nudge to correct a foot, a firm hand to reposition a stance, and an experienced eye to judge what to praise and what to correct, Conner put his decades of experience at the service of the group of young men he was working with.
In another part of the room, Comaneci was doing the same with a group of young women. One of them was Hannah Westerman, who has been chosen to represent Great Britain at the 2015 Special Olympics World Summer Games in Los Angeles next July.
Westerman is a ten-time Special Olympics national champion, and she called the chance to work directly with Nadia Comaneci "incredible."
