Black and white photo of famed American gymnast and Olympic gold medalist MARY LOU RETTON (1968-), inscribed with black marker "To Alexis/Work hard/Love/Mary Lou Retton /USA 1984". Retton was a West Virginia-born teen who became the first female from outside the Eastern European countries to win the Olympic gold individual all-around competition in Los Angeles in the '84 games. She went on to become a face on the Wheaties box, Sports Illustrated "Sportswoman of the Year", and national celebrity. Now in her 40's, her name remains quickly identifiable thirty years after the games. This is a clean photo and should prove inspiring to a new generation of hard-working gymnastics competitors.
