The Romanian gymnast, Nadia Comaneci (nod-yuh keo-man-eech) was the first Olympian to be awarded a perfect score of 10. She got 6 more 10s, just to prove the point.

It wasn't Nadia Comaneci. When the first perfect 10 was done, she wasn't even born. In 1924, Albert Sequin won gold in the men's sidehorse. His score was 10000, so he was the first to get a perfect 10.
