The Best World Finishes of All Time

worlds

Highlighting each country’s best all-around, apparatus, and team finishes at world championships since the event began in 1934!

Some of the results I could find for various world championship meets are missing data, so this list is based on the information that is available, which means there could be a few inaccuracies, especially with rankings prior to the 1980s. The following is the most notable:

  • Nearly all results sheets pre-1980 do not include breakdowns for apparatus qualifications
  • Some results sheets pre-1980 only include qualifications data for nations that sent complete teams, so programs that only sent individuals who did not make all-around or apparatus finals may be missing entirely
  • Some results sheets from the 1950s and earlier only include medalists, so many athlete and team rankings from these years are missing

  1. I love how Chusovitina made the list for all the countries she represented. I will die of happiness if Iordache, Olsen, Hernandez and Melnikova add theme selves onto the lists for their countries in Montreal next fall. Thank you a much for this Lauren! How long did it take?

    • Yeah, and I love how Chuso has all of Uzbekistan’s top finishes except for AA! This took me a little over a week…compiling all of the data was the most complicated, since there’s no one reliable database of all worlds scores (some have only finals, qualifications were missing for many). After that it was simple to pull from each country’s overall rankings to see who had the top on each event (and yes, I have a list with every single finish for every single country/gymnast to ever compete at worlds!).

  2. Thanks for this. It was a lot of fun to read.

    I was kind of surprised Svetlana Boginskaya wasn’t in there for Belarus. I know she peaked in the 89-92 quad when she was with the USSR, but she was around for a long time after that so I figured she’d have done more during 93-96.

  3. Interesting that the Soviet Union did not have a world champion on bars after 1966, despite their dominance of the sport. East Germany and Romania got a fair share of titles in the 1970s and 1980s.

  4. Hi Lauren. First of all, I want to congratulate you for all your amazing work. I am amazed by everything you are able to put out there in the gymternet! Thank you very much!

    And regarding this database, I just noticed that Svetlana Khorkina appears as the 1997 world co-champion on floor. I know that in some sites appears that she and Gina Gogean tied for gold. e.g. http://www.gymnasticsresults.com/w1997w.html#bb

    However, I would swear Gina Gogean was the sole gold medalist because they broke the tie. You can check the results in the link below. I also copied the youtube link to the moment in which Khorkina got her mark and to the moment they showed the final standings for your reference.

    Keep the great job!

  5. This is awesome, Lauren! I was surprised that Nadia had 1 individual Worlds gold. I’d forgotten that she only went to two World Championships. Thanks for your time and hard work! (Loved seeing all of Simone’s consecutive golds. Queen!)
