The Top WAG Scores in 2021

Simone Biles topped the all-around, vault, and floor rankings for 2021

In 2021, we covered 206 meets, seeing a total of 5,403 all-around performances, as well as 6,981 vault scores, 7,281 bars scores, 7,474 beam scores, and 7,207 floor scores, in addition to 1,489 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 as accurate as possible. 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.

  3. So amusing… Comparing this table to the best international scores, we realize how wild domestic scorings are in basically EVERY country!

    • Yeah, they’re ALL bad. People like to say oh the US has bad domestic scoring, Russia has bad scoring, etc, but they’re ALL a mess hahaha. I was talking to a Canadian coach once a few years back who said that they kept things pretty tight at home, but with everyone else overscoring, it looked like lots of smaller programs going into worlds would crush Canada, so the Canadian program also started overscoring at home as a strategy and they ended up being their most successful at 2017, 2018, and 2019 worlds compared to basically any other year so…I guess there is some subconscious bias when judges see big scores at home. Canada also had its most talented team basically ever for the majority of last quad, so that also worked for them, but even just looking at Ellie Black’s UB E-scores, as they increased them at home, she also started getting 14+ for hit routines at worlds so I think it works in a way. I remember Tim Daggett being flabbergasted that she went 14+ at American Cup and yeah, her E score there was definitely high…but it was on par with what she had started getting at worlds and I think that’s directly related to how they started scoring her UB at home. That’s why I don’t mind domestic scoring as much…it makes comparisons messy, but if EVERYONE’S doing it, it doesn’t matter much. I just go into worlds/the Olympics knowing that many routines will be lower than expected.
