Former gymnast and Olympic Champion Nadia Comaneci (Romania) was highly impressed after visiting the Cuban gymnastics school and exchange impressions with Cuban athlete Manrique Larduet, two-time medalist in the World Championship in 2015.
“I am very, very happy to be here. I wanted to see where the World Championship runner-up really trains. I could not miss the chance to see this place if I came to Cuba on a visit. You have given your people a great joy and pride,” Comaneci said.
Larduet, for his part, confessed he was really impressed, too, because he never thought he would have the chance to meet Nadia Comaneci in person.
