 Who is Mary Lou Retton? / Facts   

  • She won a gold medal in the individual all-around competition at the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles, as well as two silver medals and two bronze medals
  • She was the first ever American woman to win the all-around gold medal at the Olympics and was the only one to do so for twenty years
  • She is credited with being a pioneering figure in American women's gymnastics, including by the four American women who have since equaled her feat consecutively: Carly Patterson (Athens in 2004), Nastia Liukin (2008 in Beijing), Gabby Douglas (2012 in London), and Simone Biles (2016 in Rio de Janeiro)
  • Twice during that span, Americans also took silver as part of a one-two finish: Shawn Johnson in 2008 and Aly Raisman in 2016
  • Furthermore, prior to Retton's Olympic triumph, no American woman had won all-around gold at the World Championships; since then, seven Americans have done so a combined ten times - in chronological order, Kim Zmeskal, Shannon Miller (twice), Chellsie Memmel, Shawn Johnson, Bridget Sloan, Jordyn Wieber and Biles (three times)
