Ágnes Keleti (born Ágnes Klein, 9 January 1921 in Budapest) is a Hungarian-Israeli retired artistic gymnast and coach.

While representing Hungary in the Summer Olympics, she won 10 Olympic medals including five gold medals, and is thought to be one of the most successful Jewish Olympic athletes of all time. Keleti holds more Olympic medals than any other individual with Israeli citizenship, and more Olympic medals than any other Jew, except Mark Spitz.[1][2] She was the most successful athlete at the 1956 Summer Olympics. In 1957, Keleti immigrated to Israel, where she currently resides.[3]
