The original "I just nailed my final vault, so take THAT" gymnast is 39 today.
I learned this while scanning through the radio waves on my way home today. The station does a "70's at Seven" bit, and the DJ decided to intro a song with the news about Ms. Retton. "You know, that gymnast from the 70's - how is that even possible?" she gushed.
Who knows? Up next on 70's at Seven - U2.
