Men's UTRS: The Best Scores of 2017 – Updated March 19th

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.
  • Bold text indicates scores that have been added since the last update.
  • 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. correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Lukas Dauser get a 15.066, not a 14.9? I remember seeing a 15 on the livestream, but I'm not sure

    1. According to the score sheets, Lukas had a 14.966 on p-bars (6.3 D / 8.666 E).

  2. Since the new code seems to favor execution, might it be interesting to add the top ten in execution to the UTRS?

    1. When I first created the UTRS in 2013, I had considered creating a list of routines with the best execution. But I quickly found that it's problematic because you might have a routine with a 1.0 in difficulty and a 9.700 in execution. So, I quickly ditched that idea.
