A perfect 10.0 points. It is By Nadia Elena Comăneci, the winner of three Olympic gold medals at the 1976 Summer Olympics. and the first gymnast to be awarded a perfect score of 10 in an Olympic gymnastic event. She is also the winner of two gold medals at the 1980 Summer Olympics.

Gold medals awarded at the Olympics can only be won at the Olympics. But, there are different competitions throughout the years leading up to the Olympics where medals are awarded as well. That's how someone can have more career gold medals than Olympic gold medals.
In the modern Olympic games, Gold medals are awarded for first-place, Silver medals are awarded for second-place, and Bronze medals are awarded for third-place. Typically the medals are only plated with the respective metals - the cost would otherwise be outrageous. In the ancient Olympic games, the winners received laurel wreaths.
Total 302 gold medals are awarded.
