After 50 years of insanity, last year the United States finally normalized relations with Cuba. One of the benefits of this is that American citizens can now freely travel to the island nation.
According to Cuban state media (in Spanish), famous Romanian ex-gymnast Nadia Comaneci arrived in Havana yesterday.
During her visit to Cuba, Nadia Comaneci was scheduled to meet with students from the National Gymnastic School.
Founded in 2006, the National Gymnastic School participates in exchanges with other young athletes around the world to practice all types of gymnastics, including rhythmic, artistic, and trampoline.
Comaneci still regularly conducts interviews in Romanian, and holds a number of honorary positions representing the Romanian government, but she is an American citizen, so it’s really nice to see her able to share her love (and knowledge) of the sport with kids in Cuba.
