2017’s Best Scores: Checking In

eythora-thorsdottir-olympische-spelen-rio-2016-www-zomerspelen-org-eythora

Two months and eight meets into the new year — and new code of points — we decided to take a look at where things stand right now. Most top gymnasts haven’t competed yet, with next month really the first that we’ll see glimpses of the world’s best, but the earliest part of this year has helped us see scoring trends that are helping us get used to what a ‘good score’ looks like under the current system.

Below, find a list of the top all-around and event scores thus far, as well as the top D scores for each event. An asterisk (*) next to the name denotes a junior competitor (I’ve included juniors in all lists except for the best vault averages, because juniors use modified rules that allow them to compete two vaults from the same family). I’ve also removed all bonus from domestic meets to keep things consistent.

For full lists of all scores this year, and to follow along between our monthly best score posts, check out our top scores spreadsheet.

  1. It’s been more than a day, where’s the When It Counts results on your website? I’m sorry for being impatient, but I asked for them actually the week it came out and you said it would be out in that week, and it’s been a long time.

    • Yeah, I think because even though beam lost that 0.5 part of the CR, there are many other ways to make up for it in terms of CV and so far the top beam gymnasts are really chasing after those tenths! On beam last quad a 6.5 was considered exceptional and even with the 0.5 lower CR this quad, I think we’ll still see routines reach 6.5 eventually.

  2. Super excited to see the results of the American Cup coming up! Really want to see how the US gymnasts (particularly the rising seniors) stack up against the rest of the world in the new code.

  3. Hi Lauren! Could you update this results with American Cup, Stuttgart WC, Gymnix, DTB Pokal, Russian Cup, Baku, etc? I think the standings will change a lot! And also, uneven bars appears to be stagged
