The Top Ten

1 Nadia Comaneci Nadia Comaneci

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!

She got a perfect 10 people?!?!

The best gymnast forever! Has no rivals!

9 Simone Biles

Hands down the best gymnast ever. Best ever at vault and floor, and top 10 all time on beam. Bars merely solid, but not much worse than any of the other greats at their worst event.

By far the best U.S gymnast ever, and probably the best ever worldwide.

Have not words to describe her. Just my inspiration, idol and hero. It would mean the world to me if I mt her. She made me a level 9 gymnast. She is the gymnast. She is the one and only gymnast. Short, but strong. Plus, perfect abs!

Hands down best gymnast ever. - morrislawes

The Contenders

11 Dina Kochetkova

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.

Such a classy, clean, consistent, elegant, yet powerful gymnast. Way underrated and underappreciated in her career.

Was really the best in the world in her era on bars, beam, and floor. So underrated by judges and politics.

Way underrated by both fans and experts. Only Elfi Schlegal seemed to properly appreciate her brilliance.

12 Dominique Dawes
13 Olga Korbut

Wait, 25? I certainly think that Korbut deserves to be way higher...she is amazing!

14 Věra Čáslavská

She was one of the greatest.

15 Dominique Moceanu
16 Morgan Smith
17 Bridget Sloan
18 Alexandra Raisman

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!
