Transcript Going For The Gold In '88 After Nadia Comanechi cleaned house at the 1976 Olympic Games in Montreal, being the first gymnast ever to score a perfect 10 in Olympic competition, Bela Karoly, then the Romanian team coach, gave little Nadia a bear-hug that should have crushed her. She was called to the platform time after time to accept the gold medal, and won the all-around title. There can never be another Nadia Comanechi. But Bela Karoly moved to Houston and coached "spunky" Mary Lou Retton to the first all-around title for the United States and a perfect 10 at the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles. Kristie Phillips, only 14- years-old, trains in Karoly's north Houston Gymnasium for the 1988 Olympics. She will likely be the top United States contender, judging from her performance in the Summit before a crowd of 13,265. Her strengths are the floor exercise and her unequaled back-breaking contortions on the balance beam. Phillips won the all- around gold with 38.30, three tenths over Karoly's other pu- oil, Pheobe Mills. There was a perfect 10 in store for Mills on the balance beam, but seven medals for Kristie Phillips brought the crowd to its feet and Karoly to his knees. 140
