Bart Conner        

Former American Gymnast; Olympic Gold Medalist

Bart Conner, an inductee of the US Olympic and International Gymnastics Halls of Fame, is the only American male gymnast to win gold medals at every level of national and international competition. Conner has been a USA Champion, NCAA Champion, Pan-American Games Champion, World Champion, World Cup Champion, and an Olympic Champion.

Conner was a member of three Olympic Teams in 1976, 1980 and 1984. In the 1984 Olympics, he made a dramatic comeback from a torn biceps injury to win two gold medals, one as a member of the US team and the other on the parallel bars.

Today, he owns several gymnastics related business interests, including the Bart Conner Gymnastics Academy, where more than 1000 gymnasts train at every level, from beginning motor skill development to elite international competition.

In 1996, Conner married Romanian Olympic Champion, NadiaComaneci, and they have one son, Dylan Paul. Conner and Comaneci are involved in several charities, serving on the Special Olympics International, Muscular Dystrophy Association, and International Gymnastics Hall of Fame Board of Directors.
