Greg Louganis & Nadia Comaneci Get Sporty With 'Gold Meets Golden' Event

Greg Louganis and Nadia Comaneci are here. Greg won gold medals at the 1984 and 1988 Olympic Games on both the springboard and platform. Nadia was 14 when she achieved the perfect score of 10 in the 1976 Montreal Games...she took home three gold medals that year.

This weekend the two are taking part in "Gold Meets Golden". A star-studded event bringing together Hollywood entertainers and medal-winning Olympians to support current US Olympic teams and athletes.

"Gold Meets Golden" will take place at the Equinox Sports Club Lounge on Saturday, Feb. 21, 2015 --the site of the inaugural 2013 celebration - with a luncheon where actors, athletes, artists and Olympians will merge in celebration of Hollywood Awards Season, and the Special Olympics World Games, which are being held over nine days in Los Angeles (July 25-Aug. 2) this summer. 

This event will specifically benefit the World Games "Support an Athlete" Program, which raises funds to cover costs for the 7,000 athletes during their stay in Los Angeles.

The 2015 event will continue to carry the torch of the Hollywood and sports connection initially lit by 2013 hosts Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban, Jon Bon Jovi, Stacy Keibler and Ryan Kavanaugh; and 2014 hosts Kerry Washington, Sofia Vergara and Hayden Panettiere; with the announcement of 2015 hosts Eddie Redmayne, Laura Dern and Gina Rodriguez, the return of host Nicole Kidman, and Olympic champion hosts Greg Louganis, Nadia Comaneci and Bart Conner, and Maria Shriver, daughter of Special Olympics founder Eunice Kennedy Shriver.

"Gold Meets Golden" takes place at the Equinox Sports Club lounge Saturday, February 21st.
