Our best scores database is now officially COMPLETE! 2017 is in the books and as our Christmas gift to you, we’re excited to bring you a look at the gymnasts who topped the charts in the all-around and on each event in 2017.
We covered 174 meets all over the world this year, tracking over 10,000 score entries from the 3,915 female elites who competed domestically and internationally, giving us a total of 33,483 event scores to get excited about.
Below, find a list of the top all-around and event scores this year, as well as a few fun facts about each one. An asterisk (*) next to the name denotes a junior competitor, and I’ve removed bonuses from all domestic meets to keep things consistent. For full lists of all scores this year, check out our top scores spreadsheet.
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.

- We only count the top score from each individual in our rankings, so there are 26 unique individuals within our list, but looking at the TRUE 25 best including repeat scores, only 11 gymnasts are represented with the lowest score at 14.200.
- The gymnasts who repeat the most in the true 25 best include Mai Murakami with eight appearances, Elena Eremina and Ragan Smith with three apiece, and Jade Carey, Maria Kharenkova, and Emma Malabuyo with two apiece.
- Murakami, who went on to win the gold medal at worlds, competed this event 12 times in 2017, with an average of 14.254 and her lowest score a 14.000. All 12 of her scores fall within the true top 44 rankings, meaning that over a quarter of the top 44 scores (27.3%) belong to her.
We hope you enjoyed this glimpse into the numbers in 2017! Let us know if there are any other stats you’d be interested in hearing, and MERRY CHRISTMAS!
