Top 10 Best Female Gymnasts
The Top Ten
I love you Simone Biles you are the best gymnast of all time I look up to you and wish I can meet you god bless you and keep making history!
From kylee k
You gotta love Simone. She is not only the best gymnast in the world but she's warm hearted, kind caring and funny. She deserves everything she has ever won. As they say, it's biles by miles!
Her determination, drive, and amazing skills and personality make her the one to watch.
When even the best gymnasts say you are the best ever, that carries a lot of weight.
Not just the Greatest Gymnast of all time, most likely the Greatest Athlete of all time.
She is the GOAT! Style, perfection in motion and impeccable executions. She Is the GOAT!
She became goat at the age of 14 with 7 perfect 10s in a single Olympic event. That's really all one needs to know.
I agree. I watched those Olympics when I was 9 years old. Never forgot them, or her. I loved her toughness, she would stare down the bars, but I did love her smile. She's my most favorite athlete and person, other than my daughters, ever!
Mary Lou being 2nd on this is just cute.
Mary Lou Retton is amazing
Shawn Johnson kept me acting for gymnastics at all times in my life I love Shawn Johnson she inspired me in my days watching her do gymnastics.
In her prime she was nearly unbeatable. The only loss she had without making a mistake was the Beijing AA with controversial judging, and was the uneven skew in A scoring for bars.
Shawn Johnson kept me in gymnastics she is my idol
Such a great gymnast. Too bad she didn't have a longer career.
She sucks, not sure why she is on this.
Pavlova being this high is offensive. Even at her best she could never do better than 3rd or 4th place on anything.
Should have won AA gold in 1992 olympics. But this brought her back in '96. That BEAM! Wow.
No way Shannon should be over Shawn or Nastia.
Loved watching Shannon. She was Awesome
She is a class act
Should be way higher. The goddess of the sport.
Way underrated. Below Shannon Miller and Mary Lour Retton, don't make me laugh.
She is such a refined person and gymnast. I love her grace and power.
Shes so goals!
Powerful + artistry = Mustafina
She is gymnastics Queen 🥇
A phenomenal athlete that continues to give back and inspire athletes to accomplish more in their sport and life
I love her, she is such an inspiring gymnast and definitely one of my favorites. She deserves this spot on the top 10, after all her hard work. AWESOME DAWSOME!
Shawn is ahead of Nastia since even though Nastia is a bit more decorated due to a longer career Shawn usually kicked her ass when they competed head to head in 2007-2008.
How is Shawn ahead of Nastia?
She won the Olympics
Should be up with Shawn, if not ahead.
Had she not gotten injured she likely wins at least 3 world AA titles and defends her Olympic AA title in 2000.
She was like a ballerina on the floor.
Larisa Semyonovna Latynina was from southern Ukraine, USSR. Between 1956 and 1964 she won 14 individual Olympic medals and four team medals. She holds the record for the most Olympic gold medals by a gymnast, male or female, with 9. Her total of 18 Olympic medals was a record for 48 years (Michael Phelps; 2012).She held the record for individual event medals with 14 for 52 years (Michael Phelps; 2016).
Additionally, within the sport of gymnastics, she is the only woman who has won an all-around medal in more than two Olympiads and the only woman who has won an individual event (floor exercise) in more than two Olympiads.
The second greater Olympian after Michael Phelps (18 medals, 9 of them gold).
Olga Korbut was simply the most charismatic gymnast ever. This survey is too focused on current gymnasts to give Olga her due.
Wait, 25? I certainly think that Korbut deserves to be way higher...she is amazing!
The most charming, the changes this sport forever
Most underrated Russian gymnast of all time. Should have won the AA at 94 worlds and 96 Olympics with fair judging, and deserved at least silver on bars at 94 worlds.
Was really the best in the world in her era on bars, beam, and floor. So underrated by judges and politics.
Such a classy, clean, consistent, elegant, yet powerful gymnast. Way underrated and underappreciated in her career.
Beautiful gymnast, and very underrated.
Aly is an inspiration to everyone with her motto of hard work
She is amazing and awesome and she should be #1
In my option aly should be second. Then mckayla maroney 3rd.
She should be higher up there I mean come on 14 years old at the olympics, wow deserves more.
She should be in the top ten.
Incredible athlete with a mindset of a Navy Seal! Focused, driven and task oriented to get the job done no matter what...not even a broken back, two torn ACLs, broken wrist, many other minor injuries but never quitted!
She is incredible
So elegant and powerful
Heart of a champion
I love her smile
She is my all time fave
She was one of the greatest.
Did vault with a broken ankle and won gold for her team
