2018’s Best Scores: Men’s May Update

lwxruo061017

Xiao Ruoteng

As we finish up the fifth month of 2018, the men’s rankings are heating up, especially as national championships were held in China last month, where 2017 world all-around champion Xiao Ruoteng scored an 88.150, the first score above an 88 this year, allowing him to take over the top spot on the charts.

The all-around is still dominated by Japan, with 14 of the top 25 scores this year belonging to gymnasts from this country, while the remaining 11 spots belong to gymnasts from China, the  United States, Great Britain, and Russia. The closest gymnast to the top 25 who isn’t from one of these countries is the Turkish gymnast Ahmet Önder, currently ranked 31st after winning the Turkish all-around national title.

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, and I’ve removed bonus from all domestic meets to keep things consistent. As a note, if a competition uses bonuses but their score sheets don’t differentiate those bonuses from the totals, we don’t include those scores in our database.

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.
