Ranking the Best Gymnasts of the 1956 Quad

To explain this post: A gold is worth three points, silver is worth two points, and bronze is worth one point. Only individual medals will be counted as to avoid punishing gymnasts who competed for nations that aren’t established WAG powers. If there is a tie, both gymnasts get the full point total. For example Agnes Keleti and Larissa Latynina each get three points for sharing the gold medal on floor at the 1956 Olympics.
