  • A rare acting role for Olympic gymnast Bart Conner

    Bart Conner, gold medalist winner in the 1984 Olympics, makes a brief appearance in this episode about a handicapped high school athlete who takes up gymnastics.

    It's too bad Bart Conner did not pursue acting further. He is definitely a natural, and his athletic look is fascinating to see on camera. Of course, as a world-class gymnast, Conner is certainly no stranger to performing before the camera and has no doubt been photographed and filmed as much as any actor. Still one can only wonder what kind of work he could have accomplished if he chose to follow in the footsteps of other gymnasts like Kurt Thomas ("Gymkata") or Mitchell Gaylord ("American Anthem"). Conner is well-known for his friendly personable nature, and could certainly have created memorable roles with such.
