Vlasta Děkanová is a Czechoslovak/Czech artistic gymnast, and was the first ever World All-Around Champion in the sport of Women's Artistic Gymnastics. At the 1936 Berlin Olympics, she helped her team to the silver medal. The next two succeeding Summer Olympics were cancelled due to World War II. But twelve years later at the 1948 London Olympics, the Czechoslovakian women's team brought home the gold medal through Dekanova's guidance, as she was the team coach. The first ever World All-Around Champion in the sport of Women's Artistic Gymnastics in 1934, Dekanova successfully defended her victory in 1938. Conflicting information exists as to what individual events she won in 1938, when individual apparatus champions, among the women, were first recognized.
