2017’s Best Scores: June Update

Our best scores database is growing, and with several huge competitions happening in June we’re excited to look at the updates to the gymnasts topping the charts so far in 2017. By the end of June, The Gymternet has covered 95 competitions and we have 5877 score entries in our database, so let’s check in once again to see what has changed.

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 bonus from all 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. We update this religiously, after every single meet, so feel free to play around over there, sort the columns, whatever you feel like doing.

As a reminder, this is just a fun way to track the top range of scores in the all-around and on each event. Obviously every meet is scored at a different standard and it’s impossible to compare from meet to meet, but calm down — it’s nothing serious. We’re not predicting the next Olympic champion or electing the next leader of the free world. It’s just easier this way to see a range of scores that could be the goal gymnasts will be trying to reach at bigger international competitions.

  1. Love Eythora , but let’s say Reykjavik Games were kind of domestic for her, as she is also Icelander. Is she keeping anything close to that high AA score in other games also? Wow

    Like

    • No, her other scores don’t come close to that, but pretty much all of the scores this year have been inflated in some way, haha, so it almost doesn’t matter because just in looking at the scores around hers, there are several that are crazy…and ALL the scores in Reykjavik were inflated, like Sydney Johnson-Scharpf’s. I think that was the first meet in the new code of points and the judges weren’t the top-level FIG judges, so my guess is that they just went a little crazy with E scores so basically everyone at that meet got gifted, but again, soooo many meets this year had inflated scores so I wouldn’t even worry about it. It’ll all balance out, and that score for Eythora can kind of be a ‘dream score’ for her if she hits everything perfectly.

    • I’m excited to see them but lets see if they all can stay healthy etc. I love all of them, but they wouldn’t be the first ones with stellar junior records not transferring well to the seniors, injurywise etc.

    • The girls have only participated in all-around competitions currently (Locklear the exception, whose downgraded). So American gymnasts who specialize on events or have high difficulty on pet events likely haven’t been seen yet.

    • The US Has definitely had its worst year of gymnastics since 2010, I would say pretty unequivocally. There is promise that we have 3 or 4 juniors who lead the pack, but I’m very worried about the lack of Amanars. We should have a minimum of 3 Amanars at all times, and we don’t have any right now.

      Like

      • However, with each new code, the amanar becomes less and less important. In 2012, the amanar was 0.7 higher than a double twist in difficulty, in 2016, 0.5, and now, only 0.4. Many gymnasts can get away with doubles if they are clean. I would be more worried with the US on beam and especially floor – with Aly and Simone not present this year, floor is not dominated as it once was by the US.

        Like

        • Well USA still has the advantage of depth that comes with having a club system. Jesolo, Asian Championships and Reykjavik are in my opinion the most overscored major meets this year. USA still has a strong team. They have multiple clean DTY from Morgan, Riley, Alyona, Ragan. None of the USA seniors juniors stand out on floor. However Ragan hopefully should have a medal-potential routine at the classics. If Morgan Hurd puts things together she could also have a very strong routine as she can tumble very well. Victoria and Riley can be fairly good on beam. And the current USA juniors are super strong on beam. Maile and Gabby have put up very good routines. USA is certainly going through a weak period, but it is still the indisputably dominant country in gymnastics.

  3. We are absolutely dominant. We have four great Dtys by Riley, Ragan, Morgan and Alonya, we hae the highest bars score with Riley, plus Ashton, and Morgan and Ragan hold their own on bars. Beam is great, with Ragan Riley and Morgan all being medal contenders. Floor is a bit spooky without Simone and Aly, but Ragan and Morgan are certainly in the hunt to win medals there! Plus, there is an army of Juniors coming up such as Malie O’keefe and Gabby Perea. They both are great on beam and floor and Gabby is excellent on Bars! Plus, Simone and Aly (and Laurie and the others) are coming back! There is nothing to worry about!
