The Night Belongs To Dominique Moceanu

In In 1995, when she was 13½, Moceanu became the youngest gymnast ever to win the senior all-around title at the U.S. National Championships. The champ went on to represent the United States at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. Moceanu competed while injured, and contributed to the team winning a gold medal. She was also the youngest athlete ever on a Wheaties Box! Today, the mother of two turns 30. Happy birthday to her! And to the rest of you guys: May your weekend make you want to do roundoff back handsprings. See you Monday!
