UTRS: 2013 WAG Floor Scores

Last year, The All Around created some handy dandy rankings, leading up to the Olympics. This year, not so much. So, I've decided to create the UTRS (Uncle Tim Ranking System), which, for those who care, is pronounced "uterus." Think of my ranking system as a surrogate until The All Around steps in and takes over. (Still waiting for that to happen… Any day now!)

As per usual, take these rankings with a grain of salt. (Pro Tip: Never bet your life savings based on my numbers–or my predictions for that matter.) Judging varies from meet to meet, and as you can see, I've culled these scores from several meets. I've included the competition names so that you can decide how much crack the judges smoked before handing out the scores.

More than anything, you should think of these tables like this: New quad, new Code of Points. What the H is a good score nowadays? Well, let me show you…

*This floor routine is from the all-around competition. Seitz posted her highest floor routine during event finals. So far, I have not found a video of that performance.

Your take:

Above, you'll find links to the top 15 floor routines. How do you rank them? In your book, is Afanasyeva the best? Biles second? Iordache third? I mean, no routine will ever match the greatness of the Hava Nagila, but still…

  1. You mean the horrors of Hava Nagila?

  2. Mai Murakami had 6.2 D-score on Japanese Nationals

  3. Ummm Raisman should obviously be #1.......The off-beat dancing and robotic moves was an artistic statement; capturing the transient beauty of industrialization, japanese robots, GoGurt Squirtz and irony.

    1. Not to mention, portraying the spirit of club dancing by repeatedly bouncing her crotch against the floor.
