Top 10 Best Female Gymnasts
The Top Ten
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.
She is absolutely amazing; she has the most difficult floor routine of a time!39 Comments
Not just the Greatest Gymnast of all time, most likely the Greatest Athlete of all time.
Simply the best!
Nadia Comaneci will be the best for ever21 Comments
Mary Lou Retton is amazing
Mary Lou being 2nd on this is just cute. - feisty37
She is the best and is a great role model.
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.
Such a great gymnast. Too bad she didn't have a longer career. - quackerpacker
Better overall gymnast than Shanon and Nastia. 2nd best American ever to Simone in my opinion. - morrislawes7 Comments
She sucks, not sure why she is on this. - morrislawes
Pavlova being this high is offensive. Even at her best she could never do better than 3rd or 4th place on anything. - feisty37
Should be way higher. The goddess of the sport.
Way underrated. Below Shannon Miller and Mary Lour Retton, don't make me laugh.
Loved watching Shannon. She was Awesome
No way Shannon should be over Shawn or Nastia. - quackerpacker
Overrated! - morrislawes
Powerful + artistry = Mustafina
She is such a refined person and gymnast. I love her grace and power.
Shes so goals!
She is gymnastics Queen 🥇
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. - morrislawes
Should be up with Shawn, if not ahead.
Shawn was always overscored. Nastia was much better then Shawn, yet somehow Shawn is still ahead.
How is Shawn ahead of Nastia?2 Comments
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. - feisty37
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).
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. - morrislawes1 Comment
Olga Korbut was simply the most charismatic gymnast ever. This survey is too focused on current gymnasts to give Olga her due.
The most charming, the changes this sport forever
Wait, 25? I certainly think that Korbut deserves to be way higher...she is amazing!
She is amazing and awesome and she should be #1
Aly is an inspiration to everyone with her motto of hard work
In my option aly should be second. Then mckayla maroney 3rd.1 Comment
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.
She is my all time fave
I love her smile
She is incredible
So elegant and powerful
Did you see all her titles
PAC 12 scoloar athlete
NCAA champion on beam
NCAA champion with team
And that’s just this year
Oh did I mention they are making a movie about her
She tore her ACL recoved, found it has gone had repair surgery and won all these things
She went from almost being paralyzed in high school to becoming a world known champion
Peng tore her ACL two times and still managed to bring UCLA a NCAA championship ring 💍
She was one of the greatest.
After we all found out what she went through while competing, I think she showed what courage,and strength are all about. And she rocked our world when she vaulted
The Queen Of Vault forever. She is the best vaulter but she's amazing on the other events too. Also she is so down to earth and cares about her fans and religious. She is amazing.
Not impressed! She got Obama to pull the face too!
She is so damn sexy.
She definitely deserves to be on this list! She never stopped doing gymnastics after the Olympics when the other half of her stopped for 2 full years and then came back! She definitely deserves some recognition!
She was my favorite gymnast for years! I am so glad that she is number 12 on the list.
Did vault with a broken ankle and won gold for her team
She is awesome
Nobody dominated 3 events- bars, beam, and floor, all at once, like she did.
Overscored her whole career, especialy on vault. So many gift titles- all 3 of her world golds at the 89 worlds, her 88 floor title which should have gone to one of the Bulgarians, her 87 bars title which should have gone to Shushunova. - morrislawes
If they did not rip her off for her double twisting Yurchenko during the AA, Mo Huilan would have been the Olympic Champion instead of Lilia P. Her DTY was the best of her time... Textbook. And she had the most difficult bar routine in the World with the Gaylord. The Gaylord is a G skill on a scale of A to G. She also had very difficult FX and BB routines. - Rexbrooks
I have honestly only ever heard of her since I am Canadian. Otherwise I am sure she would be a complete mystery to me. - feisty37
Who is this? - feisty37
She is my hero her and simon bills
Gabby's great and pushed through tough times Gabby's proven that shes one of the best and deserves her rewards
She is amazing and she was one of the best in the world and she will all was be the one of the best
Gabby Douglas is the best of all times. The first gymnast to win the all-around and the team at the same time she made history and broke all records. Love her14 Comments
This girl had it all! She was the best Gymnast of the 2004 Olympics!
