July 19, 1976

THE NEW YORK TIMES, July 19, 1976 

* Nadia Com─âneci wins overall gold
* Romanian gymnast - gymnastics
* 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal

The bottom of the front page has a photo with small heading: "Olympic Gold Medalist" (see)
The sport's section (page 39) has a headline that announces: "Miss Comaneci Takes Title on 4th, 5th Perfect Scores" with photo and more. First report coverage the famous Romanian gymnast winning the overall gold medal.
Other news of the day. Complete in 56 pages, never bound, foxing to the central fold on the front page, generally nice.
