If you mention that at age 51, you still do a handstand everyday, as did Bart Conner in this 710 ESPN Radio interview recorded at Morton's Steakhouse in Downtown LA, you just might feel the urge to take off your jacket and show, not just tell. And you just might be joined by fellow '84 Olympians Peter Vidmar, Mary Lou Retton and even Greg Louganis in some handstands of their own.

Tonight the 25th anniversary of the 1984 Olympics, which were of course held here in Los Angeles, will be marked with a gala event at the Coliseum.
