Best U.S Gymnasts Ever

The Top Ten

Simone Biles

My coach was your coach in the olympics october 2018

Why does it say 23%? Shouldn't this be 100%? Best gymnast ever.

Amazing talent! So much power in her tumbling, vaulting, and bar swing.

By far the best U.S gymnast ever, man or women. - morrislawes

Paul Hamm

The 2nd best overall U.S gymnast ever, after only Simone Biles, and the best male U.S gymnast ever - morrislawes

Overrated. Sorry should be way lower on this list. - feisty37

I hate him, he is way too high on this list.

Overrated thrash and a gay drunk today too. - quackerpacker

Nastia Liukin

The 4th best overall U.S gymnast ever, and 2nd best U.S female gymnast ever, after only Simone Biles. - morrislawes

Should be over Nastia. The main prize both wanted Nastia won.

Kurt Thomas

The 3rd best overall U.S gymnast ever, and 2nd best U.S male gymnast ever, after only Paul Hamm. - morrislawes

He and Mary Lou together made U.S gymnastics what it is today! They were the start. - quackerpacker

Amazing man, great champion! So sad he never got an Olympics in.

Such a great gymnast and an amazing man. Miss him so much.

Vanessa Atler

She had no mental toughness but in sheer talent 2nd to only Biles.

Chellsie Memmel

There is no weakness in her gymnastics. Beautiful form and great difficulty and attack. Just bad luck with injuries, poor thing! - quackerpacker

Great gymnast, such a fighter.

Chellsie shuld never be below Nastia. Without her injury she wins 2008 Olympic AA and not Nastia. She also defends her world AA in 2006 and 2007 maybe without injury.

She NEVER would have won the AA in 2008. She scores way lower than Nastia on bars, and not higher on any event really. She is outscored by a ton by Shawn on vault, more than she outscores Shawn on bars, and wouldn't outscore her on beam or floor. - tuckerplace

Shawn Johnson

Definitely 2nd best for women after only Simone!

Not sure why she is so low.

The best there ever was!

Best gymnast EVER

Trent Dimas
Mary Lou Retton

Should be over Miller. Left a bigger legend with her Los Angeles performance. Won the Olympic AA which Miller was not talented enough to win, and the American Cup 3 times to Miller's only 1 time. - jayjustinbest

People diss her for winning a boycotted Games but the field was still way stronger than the ones Patterson and Biles and even Liukin won over, even with the boycott.

Without her we don't have U.S gymnastics be anywhere near what it is today.

Shannon Miller

Overrated. 5th combining men is way too high for her in my opinion. She excelled in a weak era that was so poor Milosovici (haha) became the first women to win Olympic/World titles on all 4 apparatus. And that Gogean won 20 world/Olympic medals, including 10 golds. - feisty37

The Contenders

Mitch Gaylord

Real best U.S gymnast of 83-84, not overhyped Vidmar. Without his fall would have won the AA in 84.

Julia McNamara
Kathy Johnson
Dominique Dawes

Most dominant gymnast ever at Nationals with over 20 U.S golds.

Liz Tricase
Danell Leyva

Danell is one of the best male gymnasts! So elegant and classy with his style. Definitely a force to be reckoned with

So underrated by USGA and fans, but he continues to deliver clutch performances and win many medals. - quackerpacker

Bart Conner

One of the original greats of U.S gymnastics.

Carly Patterson
Jonathan Horton
Alicia Sacramone
McKayla Maroney
Rebecca Bross
Kyla Ross
Cathy Rigby
Courtney Kupets

Best NCAA career ever, following an excellent elite career.
