Top Ten Best Gymnasts

The Top Ten

1 Simone Biles

What is wrong with this list?!?!?!? Simone Biles should be number 2 at least and that's a fact! She has won 3 world championships in a row. She is the best gymnast in the world right now and definitely deserves to be number 2!

Should be #1. No offense to Nadia but the stuff she did doesn't even look like gymnastics by todays standards. - quackerpacker

What is wrong with this list? Simone biles should be number 1! she always sticks landings and has extreme height in her floor routines.

No way she should be behind Khorkina. On bars Khorkina schools Biles but Biles schools Khorkina everywhere else. Vault and floor are no contest obviously. Beam is Khorkina's weakest event, so Biles easily beats her there too.

She looks like she is squatting to take a dump on the beam in that pic. - feisty37

Way better than Gina, it is a shame the Romanian coaches demoted her to a team leader/captain type role after 94 and put her earlier in lineups to enable Gina and Simona to shine over her. So unfair, especialy after all she did for years for Romanian gymnastics. - morrislawes

Only person to win every evnet gold in World/Olympics. also robbed of winning Olympic AA in 92 and world AA in 94, which would give her the best career ever before Biles if we just give her the few titles just robbed her along with the ones she already has.

3 Lilia Podkopayeva Lilia Podkopayeva

Should be way higher. Most successful overall gymnasts of her era, probably a bit over Miller, Gogean, and Milosovici (I count Khorkina as another era considering she kept competing to 2004) and this was in a badly shortened carer by injury. - quackerpacker

4 Nadia Comaneci Nadia Comaneci

She definitely deserved number 1 a perfect 10 is so hard to get and she was the first female to get one

5 Svetlana Khorkina

She is really overrated. Her AA dominance was almost entirely by her bar dominance. She won a grand ONE combined world/Olympic title on the other 3 events. Many times, like for instance the 97 worlds when she barely beat Amanar, Amanar crushed her on every event but bars but barely lost since she scored a half point (a falls worth of points) lower on bars. - quackerpacker

6 Gina Gogean

She sucked. So many undeserved gift medals. - morrislawes

7 Nastia Liukin

She won gold at the Olympics and tried to go for a second Olympics! She should be higher on the list!

Such Elegance and poise. She is a phenomenal bar worker, and she is great at beam and floor as well!.

Olga Korbut should be Number2 she was an incredible gymnast who revolutionised gymnastics

14 Vera Čáslavská

She was one of the best.

15 Shannon Miller
16 Tatiana Gutsu
17 Elena Shushunova
18 Kerri Strug

Kerri Strug, is that some kind of awful joke!?!?! She isn't even a top 200 female gymnast all time I am sure. - feisty37

Should be much higher. - Eddiej
