The Best Scores in 2017

58fd21d11f7d8

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.

5 thoughts on “The Best Scores in 2017

  1. The GINORMOUS difference between the top beam score at worlds and at other international meets is astonishing. Nearly two full points?! How can that be?! I have nothing against harsh judging and I’m sure we could all get used to seeing an 8 E-score as a great result but please, judges, be consistent with your own job. Either be this harsh at every competition (and in every event, for God’s sake) or just go back to the slightly more lenient scoring. Just, please, make up your minds because this is just nonsense.

  2. The amount of data and the data management are impressive! I can’t imagine your Excel files! Thank you so much for these stats, there’s so much you can say about all these figures. The first obvious impression is the confirmation of local overscoring during national championships in some countries and the significant gap between results at most meets and those achieved at worlds.

    • Thank you!! Yes, the overscoring at home vs international is always a mess but this year felt especially bad with the code changes and judges not having a clue how to score routines. Even at a lot of international meets, scores were WAY off. Hopefully what judges saw at worlds this year will change how they judge routines going forward but honestly I doubt it because home judges are still going to want to boost scores wildly.

  3. I’m all for judges that aren’t afraid to take off for any and all mistakes but I thought worlds scoring was a little too strict. Granted, I felt that the gymnasts seemed a lot more shaky than usual, but there were definitely routines that I felt should’ve been closer to or at a 14+ that got the low to mid 13 treatment.
