I have to share with y'all that I met Valeri Liukin and his daughter Nastia about 4 years ago. At that time Valeri was the coach for Carly Patterson who was wonderfully successful in the 2004 Summer Olympics. At that same time I had my own small business installing Home Theatre, Whole House Audio, Home Automation, etc in new and existing homes.
A homebuilder that we had a relationship with connected us with his his homebuyer which was Valeri Liukin. He was a great guy to work with. I met him a couple of times at the gym which was pretty cool. I remember seeing a younger Nastia Liukin there at the gym.
Anyhow, I just had to share my little brush with fame. It's way cool to say, "Hey, I met that guy!"
