Women's UTRS: Best Scores of 2013 Updated August 18

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.

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…


  • Bold Face: An update since the last iteration of the UTRS.
  • An asterisk (*): Usually denotes a routine for which I have a final score without a D score.
  • Links, when available, are provided for the top 5 routines.
  • Scores from the Russian Cup have not been included

  1. WOW....Team USA is insane! If you added junior AA scores to the list. The top 15 would be almost all USA. Katelyn Ohashi wasn't even there. Three senior girls could have been in the 60 range.

    1. Yeah but no one in their right mind trusts US domestic scoring with all that inflation.

    2. Oh no, it was still horrendously inflated. I did my own "judging" for each routine, and I found all of them inflated by at least 0.4 if not more. And Maroney was the absolute most overscored. I found a score of 15.5 at most for her 16.0 Amanar and a score of 14.6 for her 15.15 Floor Exercise. The American domestic judges are really doing a horrid job. And it's embarrassing; no other country inflates like ours does.

  2. Bad enough...It's crazy when you think that those exact same routines would get at least .2 less in execution. There's no way Mckayla's routine was worth a 15.25 with a 6.1 start value. Ksenia is still the one to beat on floor.

    1. Sandra is gonna win the gold for sure, floor is her's again, like vault in London ;)

  3. Kylas beam, Simones bars and Mckaylas floor and amanar day 2 was very very overscored. Not a chance those routines would've gotten those scores at worlds. Just saying.

    1. What are you talking about. Lord ache was so over score on bb. With the girl from china was so much better and got .65 less. Now lets not get into the Russian scores those are so inflated. Mckaya has looked so much better than afansia and has only competed twice since the Olympics. So get your bifocals checked.

    2. We'll see at the Worlds, but everyone knows american's scores are inflated always!

  4. Hahaha I feel like the judges looked at this list the night before and said "These are the scores we have to give them in order to have us top the UTRS list, everyone got it?" The scores the second day were an actual joke. I hope the girls aremt expecting to won everything at worlds with these scores cause they are in for a rude awakening.

  5. I'd encourage everyone to read this post from the Balance Beam Situation:

    Believe me, I've always said that certain Americans (e.g. Aly Raisman) will never get those scores international, but lo and behold, she does. We'll have to see whether these gymnasts get those scores internationally.

  6. I really hate how cynical gym fans are with judging nowadays. Y'all would have had aneurysms if you were watching the sport pre-1997 with the scoring going on back then.

  7. Are you going to make a new one with the National games and Romanian Nationals scores?

    1. Yes, a new UTRS should be available tomorrow. I'm waiting on the D and E scores from the event finals at the Romanian Nationals.
