Oklahoma- "A mall in downtown Tulsa gives shoppers and tourists a large area for strolling."

|Here is a photo of one of the most famous gymnasts ever, Nadia Comaneci. She inspired|
my idol, Mary Lou Retton, who won the Olympic All-Around title in 1984. Every
Olympic Games, the names change, but you always remember your athlete and what they did.
