OLYMPIC GOLD MEDAL GYMNAST TO APPEAR AT STRAWBRIDGE & CLOTHIER IN THE CHERRY HILL MALL ON TUESDAY, AUG. 10

 PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 9 /PRNewswire/ --In 1976, Nadia Comaneci won the hearts and admiration of viewers of the Olympic Games when she scored seven perfect 10s and won three gold medals; one silver and one bronze. In the 1984 Olympics, Bart Conner won two gold medals and became the only American gymnast to win gold medals at every level of national and international gymnastics competition.
 These two champions will come together at Strawbridge & Clothier in the Cherry Hill Mall on Tuesday, Aug. 10. Conner will demonstrate some of the skills that placed him in the Olympic Hall of Fame with a gymnastic exhibition in the Center Court of the mall at noon. Comaneci and Conner will then greet customers and autograph photographs in the Intimate Apparel Department, on the Upper Level of Strawbridge & Clothier, until 1 p.m. (while time permits).
 Comaneci and Conner represent Jockey, International, and, during their appearance, customers will have the opportunity to win a Jockey "family" wardrobe, valued at $25 per family member for a total value of up to $250.
 Comaneci continues to display her gymnastic talents at professional exhibitions around the world and is currently working on a movie that will tell the story of her life and her escape from Romania.
 Conner owns a gymnastic academy in Oklahoma where both he and Comaneci act as coaches. In addition, he acts as a sports analyst on gymnastic events for both ESPN and ABC's Wide World of Sports.
