Ranking the Best Gymnasts of the 1964 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 Vera Caslavska and Larissa Petrik each get three points for sharing the gold medal on floor at the 1968 Olympics.

Note: The 1964 German Olympic team was technically a “Unified” team featuring athletes from East and West Germany. However its gymnastics team was composed entirely of East German athletes.
