I once coached 3 young women 5′ 10″ and taller at the same time.
They were IMPRESSIVE on Beam and Bars, let me tell you.
Haley Cameron is 6â€² 2â€³ tall (1.88m) and competed all-around Level 7 in California.
But who were the tallest International gymnasts ever?
Double Olympian Jana KomrskovÃ¡ was 1.67 m (5.5 ft) tall.
Katheleen Lindor, another Olympian, stands at 5’6″. She had to have the bars adjusted for her in Beijing!
But the tallest I could find on the internets was …
Marie Sophie Hindermann, a German Olympian … at 5’7″
Here she is at the 2007 Worlds Event Finals on Bars. Click PLAY or watch the IMPRESSIVE routine on YouTube.
Past & Present Gymnastics lists more – The not so tiny tumblers?
There must have been taller. Leave a comment if you know of any.
Sandra Izbasa (1.64m – 5â€²5â€²â€™) is likely the tallest Olympic gold medalist. Along with Svetlana Khorkina who was about the same height.
UPDATES from commenters:
A Canadian gymnast, Cara Pomeroy, is 5â€²9â€³.
She was Canadian National Bars Champion on more than one occasion (beautiful Stalder and Endo Work, Giant Full to Gienger, Flyaway Double Twist Dismout), and did well in the all-around (won medals at National Championships on Floor and Beam).
Cara went to University of Illinois on a full Scholarshipâ€¦And scored a 10.0 on Bars in NCAA competition.
Ashley Miles was probably the tallest in elite gymnastics and to compete at a World Championships at 5â€²7â€³-5â€²8â€³.
