Nellie Kim Gymnastics Tribute

Authors Website

Nellie Kim gymnastics video montage.

Kim was the first female gymnast in Olympic history to earn a perfect 10 score on vault and floor in 1976.

Nellie Kim's rivalry with Nadia Comaneci became the main news in the media and, though Kim finished 2nd in the all-around competition, she won 3 gold medals, 1 in the team competition and 2 in the event finals: on vault and floor. Nellie was also the first woman to perform a double back salto at an Olympic Games.

At the 1979 World Gymnastics Championships, Nellie won the all-around title.

In 1980, at the Olympic Games in Moscow, Kim won gold in the team competition and tied for gold with Nadia Comaneci on floor. This was Kim's last competitive performance
