Yordan Yovchev is arguably the finest men's gymnast alive. In his collection he has four gold medals from World Gysnastics Championships, four Olympic medals (one silver, and three bronze), three gold medals from European Championships and many, many others.

Yordan Yovchev was born on February 24, 1973 in Plovdiv, Bulgaria.

In 2006, Yordan Yovchev was officially announced as one the greatest gymnasts in the history of the sport by the International Federation. One of the most popular facts about him is his participation in the Olympics in Athens 2004 where he wins the silver medal. The jury gives the gold medal to the Greek athlete Dimostenis Tambakos even though Yordan Yovches is apparently better in his performance.

Yordan Yovchev receives his first international award in Under 18 European championship in 1991 when he became second in the twelve events. In 1996 in the European championship in Kobenhavn takes the silver medal in rings and becomes fourth in the twelve events. In the World Cup Tournament in 1999 in Tianjin he becomes third in the twelve events. During the Sidney 2000 Olympics he wins two bronze medals in ground and rings. In 2001 he becomes double world champion in ground and rings in Gent, Belguim. In 2002 becomes double world champion in ground and rings in Debrecen. A year later, in 2003, for third consecutive time he wins the gold medals in ground and rings in the world cup tournament in Anaheim. During the 2004 Athens Olympics he wins the bronze medal in ground and the silver in rings, again, one of the most arguable medals in the history of the gymnastics.

Yordan Yovchev also won the best sportsman on the Balkan Peninsula for 2003, and was chosen Man of the year in Bulgaria for 2004.
