THE SUMMER GAMES
Almost as soon as the Games began, Nadia Comaneci got the first perfect score of 10 in Olympic gymnastics. From then on, other athletes seemed intent on matching her. In swimming, the U.S. men came close, taking 12 of 13 events, as did East Germany's women, who won 11 of 13. All told, the little GDR took 90 medals, only four fewer than the U.S. And it briefly appeared that the American boxers, astutely coached by Pat Nappi and Tom Johnson, might clobber everyone. They won five firsts.
U.S. boxers like Sugar Ray Leonard had a corner on coaching.
Bruce Jenner vaulted to a world record in the decathlon.
John Naber swam to four U.S. golds.
America's Mary Tauskey, Bruce Davidson, John Plumb, Edmund Coffin didn't horse around.
Romania's Comaneci was right on the beam, where she won one of her three gold medals.
East Germany's soccer team got a real big kick out of winning.
Finn Lasse Viren won 5,000 and 10,000, was fifth in marathon.
