Daniela Silivaș (b. 1972) is a Romanian gymnast known as one of the most skilled and decorated women in the sport. She is most famous for being the only gymnast of either gender to win a medal in every single event during the 1988 Summer Olympics, where she earned 7 perfect 10 scores.

Throughout her career she won six individual World Championship titles, the 1987 European all-around title, and 29 medals. She is the youngest person to ever be inducted in the International Gymnastics Hall of Fame.

Hands down one of the best FX rotations in the history of this sport

From the innovative tumbling, through the originality of every routine (each one was different from the other), to the perfect presentation and the quality of their work. Only the 1989 and 1980 Soviets could match this.

From Golea’s famous train routine

To the veteran Kati Szabo’s tango

To probably the most original floor routine ever (imagine a 90′s Romanian doing this, I hate you, Octavian Bellu)

To Dobre’s pop masterpiece

And finally the icing on the cake, probably my favourite floor routine ever along with Omelianchik’s Birdie and Naimushina’s Kalinka. No words can describe this.

* Tumblr only allowed me to post five videos, so sadly I had to leave Popa’s out
