The Youth Olympic Games Medal Rankings – Detailed

As part of our Research Files, here’s a ranked list of every single gymnast who has won a Youth Olympic Games medal from the first competition in 2010 up to the present day. This list is our more in-depth chart that includes every medal in detail, but if you’re looking for something simpler, you can check out the basic list instead.

In those instances where more than one athlete has the same number of total medals, the first tiebreaker is the number of gold medals, then the number of silver medals. Where two or more athletes have exactly the same number of gold, silver and bronze medals, the ranking is shown as a tie and the athletes are shown in alphabetical order.

  1. This is bullshit, Komova is so much better than Villa. The latter will fail in the transition to senior and will never live up to the hype.

      • On a more serious note…I guess it kind of depends on how you define the hype around Komova?

        If the expectations were WC and Olympic gold, she did underachieve. But 2 Olympic silver medals plus 2 WC gold and 2 WC silver would be the kind of career most (perhaps even including the fabulous Villa) could only dream of.

        • Yeah, I think she ‘underachieved’ in terms of the height because she SHOULD have beaten Jordyn in 2011 and SHOULD have won in 2012…I think out of both of those groups in those years, she was the most talented and had she put everything together, it would’ve been hers, both times…kind of like Villa should have won gold this year but wasn’t fully on in qualifications and was second, but you could tell she was still the BAWSS of the meet and would be the best contender for gold if everyone hit at 100%. But still, winning the silver at worlds and the Olympics back to back isn’t an underachievement by far. It’s all relative. She ‘underachieved’ in the sense that she could’ve been the 2011 world and 2012 AA champ, but she also did a hell of a lot in the sport and then also had a successful comeback to become a world bars champ even if 2016 didn’t go her way. A lot of bummer misses in her career but also a lot of medals and rankings that many couldn’t be capable of achieving.

        • What are you talking about? Komova did win 2011 and 2012. What counts is what the fans consider and not what’s in the books. In the books Simona Amanar is the 2000 AA champion but we know who the true champion is.

          Also, Komova 2012 would have easily defeated Biles in 2013.

        • Ahem *if she hit*

          No one’s questioning if she was an amazing gymnast or not. She probably had the most talent in that quad but couldn’t put it all together as a senior.

  3. Komova had incredible difficulties and beautiful lines, Giorgia has not the same difficulties Junior Komova had, but she is stronger in the head and she will give always the maximum of her potential, something that Komova hasn’t done frequently, spending time and energy pouting, instead to stay focus. Giorgia is a fighter, Komova isn’t. We’ll see in the future what the young Italian will be capable to achieve.
