King’s Cross tube station in London named after Romanian gymnast Nadia Comaneci in Olympic tube makeover
Many visitors pouring into London this summer for the Olympics will arrive at Nadia Comaneci. Transport for London unveiled their Olympic Legends Map. The names of all 361 stations on the iconic multi-coloured London tube map have been altered to the names of Olympic heroes - past and present.
The name of fantastic Romanian Nadia Comaneci, renowned for being the first gymnast who received a perfect score of ten in an Olympic competition, will be associated to King’s Cross St. Pancras, first London tube station to be inaugurated in 1863.
Romania will have four more tube stations named after Romanian Olympic athletes: Ivan Patzaichin, Elisabeta Lipa, Iolanda Balas and Georgeta Damian.
