The Best Men’s Scores in 2019: August Update

Screen Shot 2019-08-20 at 1.14.31 AM

So far in 2019, we’ve seen 2,795 all-around performances, as well as 4,343 floor scores, 4,451 pommels scores, 4,192 rings scores, 4,163 vault scores, 4,250 p-bars scores, and 4,266 high bar scores in addition to 940 two-vault attempts that get averaged for an event final (or qualification into a final).

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, we only include juniors in the two-vault averages or D-score combos if they’re competing vaults from two different families, and 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.

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.

This is a static update to show the best scores at this moment in time, but we try to update this list after every other weekend of competitions. The most recent update is August 19, 2019, and the living and breathing list can be found here (we also have an easy link to it in our menu bar up top).

  1. so with a hit day, mikulak is definitely in contention for a possible AA medal? or do we just have too much domestic scoring to be able to believe that?

    Guess his problem is also hitting when it counts?

    Like

    • He may have a couple more upgrades to give him a better chance, but yeah the biggest thing for him is to hit all his routines. It’s always a question mark with him. He certainly has the potential. He was in third going into the last rotation at Worlds last year until he had a disaster on high bar.
