Men's UTRS: The Best Scores of 2017 Updated March 5

I've decided to revive the UTRS (Uncle Tim Ranking System), which, for those who care, is pronounced "uterus." For the time being, it's going to be a very tiny UTRS, mostly because there haven't been many meets. But as we see more men, the UTRS will expand.

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 (or meth) 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? I don't think anyone knows right now. So, let me show you…

  • 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.

  • The official results sheets for Russian Nationals do not include D scores. I love you, Gymternet, but I don't have time to score every routine on YouTube. Wedding planning > Scoring routines. So, there may be a few Russian gymnasts who have big Ds and aren't listed. If you know who they are, leave their names and D scores in the comments section below.
  • As always, if I missed someone, let me know in the comments. Obrigado.

  1. Nikita Nagornyy did a HB routine at the Russian AA final which I'm pretty sure had a 6.4 D score. I have no idea what score he got for it though, they didn't show it and it's not on any of the score sheets. Dmitry Lankin also got a 14.533 for his floor in that final, with his 6.4 D score.

  2. Steve Legendre also competed a 6.3 on floor at the winter cup
