Top Ten Best Gymnasts


The Top Ten

1 Simone Biles

Simone is so talented! (Also really gorgeous)

Why doesn't Biles get all the votes? She hasn't lost a competition in forever. She can do skills that no one else can do, like the skill named after her, a double layout with a half twist. She can also do some other thing that only a handful of gymnasts can do, like an Amanar vault. She won the gold for all-around at the 2016 Olympics, and has won 3 world championship titles. She has also won 4 national titles (by the end of this week, it'll most likely be five). If anyone says "gymnastics", the first name you'd hear would be Simone Biles.

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

She should be number two! She is the gold medalist this year! She is inspirational! She is amazing in all events!

Beautiful toepoint, so elegant, and dominant at her best.

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

3 Lavinia Miloșovici Lavinia Miloșovici

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

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.

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

4 Nadia Comaneci Nadia Comaneci

She´s the best!

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 Andrea Raducan Andrea Raducan
7 Gina Gogean

She sucked. So many undeserved gift medals. - morrislawes

8 Larisa Latynina

I don't appreciate at all the deletion of my descriptions.

9 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!.

10 Jordyn Wieber

The Contenders

11 Dina Kochetkova Dina Kochetkova
12 Carly Patterson
13 Olga Korbut

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

Olga will always deserve a special place in our hearts...

14 Vera Čáslavská

She was one of the best.

Věra Čáslavská was a Czechoslovak artistic gymnast and Czech sports official. She won a total of 22 international titles between 1959 and 1968 including 7 Olympic gold medals, 4 world titles and 11 European championships. Čáslavská is the most decorated Czech gymnast in history and is one of only two female gymnasts, along with Soviet Larisa Latynina, to win the all-around gold medal at two consecutive Olympics.
Čáslavská dominated the 1965 and 1967 European Championships, taking all five individual titles and scoring perfect scores of 10 in 1967.

15 Catalina Ponor

She won gold at the Olympics on BEAM! That is so hard to win gold on BEAM! She definitely deserves some recognition!

16 Shannon Miller
17 Tatiana Gutsu
18 Elena Shushunova
19 Gabby Douglas Gabby Douglas

Should be much higher. - Eddiej

20 Kerri Strug
