National Team Rankings – March 2018

How It Works
Taking into account all scores recorded at competitions in the last six months, each nation is given a team total based on how its best-scoring group of five senior gymnasts would do in a hypothetical 3-up, 3-count team final.

Each individual’s best scores may come from any official competition (they need not all be from the same meet), and whichever group of five gymnasts would produce the highest score is the one selected.

Countries that have not shown enough senior routines in the last six months to fill a 3-up, 3-count team on each event are not included.

Rankings will be updated on or around the first of each month, and scores will expire after six months in order to provide the most up-to-date snapshot of where nations are at the current moment. The current rankings include only scores from September 2017–February 2018.

Leaving the rankings this month were Mexico, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Vietnam, Philippines, and Thailand, temporarily without enough scores on each event in the last six months to put together a team.

Last month’s ranking is in parentheses.

1. (3) CHINA – 172.799
Chen Yile 14.500 14.300 14.550 13.700
Lyu Jiaqi 0.000 14.866 12.033 0.000
Liu Tingting 14.300 13.900 14.867 13.500
Li Qi 14.267 0.000 15.250 13.533
Fan Yilin 0.000 15.166 13.567 0.000
172.799 43.067 44.332 44.667 40.733
Whaaa? I know. It’s easy to interpret China’s usurpation of the #1 position as simply the product of Chinese Nationals taking place in the last six months while US and Russian nationals didn’t (though China is not exactly known for cracky nationals scores), but don’t underestimate the scoring potential that a team of Chen, Li, Liu, Fan, and [like anyone else] could have. If all healthy at the same time, that’s a very legitimate squad.
2. (2) UNITED STATES – 172.397
Ragan Smith 14.466 14.133 12.900 14.433
Maile O’Keefe 14.550 14.033 14.450 13.600
Jade Carey 15.066 0.000 0.000 14.200
Emma Malabuyo 14.550 13.933 14.333 14.066
Emily Lee 13.500 12.000 14.650 13.200

172.397

44.166 42.099 43.433 42.699
It’s the slim pickins portion of the year for the US because very few of the top US gymnasts have recorded scores in public events in the last six months—other than worlds (not the most charitable judging) and the Japan junior event O’Keefe and Malabuyo attended in September. That’s why you’ll see Emily Lee’s big beam score from an elite qualifier on there…because those are the scores the US has to choose from right now.
3. (1) RUSSIA – 172.199
Elena Eremina 14.033 15.100 13.233 13.600
Angelina Melnikova 14.550 14.966 12.600 13.700
Varvara Zubova 13.167 12.700 14.250 13.600
Angelina Simakova 15.050 14.100 13.300 13.200
Maria Kharenkova 13.167 12.700 15.350 14.200
172.199 43.633 44.166 42.900 41.500
All of those hit beam routines and giant floor scores went away after August’s Russian nationals scores dropped off, accounting for Russia’s fall this month. Though impressively, Russia is still within striking distance of the top two teams even without those comically charitable domestic scores. The gradual fluttering away of the Eremina scores while she’s out with injury may mean more trouble.
4. (4) JAPAN – 170.432
Asuka Teramoto 13.600 13.966 14.200 13.350
Mai Murakami 14.950 13.900 13.800 14.333
Kiko Kuwajima 14.350 12.750 14.500 12.300
Aiko Sugihara 14.200 13.533 14.000 13.833
Hitomi Hatakeda 14.650 14.400 13.800 13.100
170.432 43.950 42.266 42.700 41.516
5. (6) CANADA – 169.084
Brooklyn Moors 14.166 13.200 13.767 14.600
Shallon Olsen 14.450 12.000 12.500 13.667
Rose Woo 13.850 13.667 13.100 13.500
Ana Padurariu 13.500 14.267 14.333 13.734
Ellie Black 14.600 14.400 13.433 13.433
169.084 43.216 42.334 41.533 42.001
The scores from Elite Canada have allowed the Canadians to jump up into 5th place, of particular importance being that huge FX number for Brooklyn Moors, putting Canada’s floor total behind only the Americans.
6. (7) FRANCE – 168.816
M De Jesus Dos Santos 14.550 14.650 13.700 13.550
Lorette Charpy 13.800 14.350 14.000 13.200
Marine Boyer 13.950 13.200 14.250 13.650
Juliette Bossu 13.550 14.166 13.150 13.400
Coline Devillard 14.600 0.000 0.000 0.000
167.532 43.100 43.166 41.950 40.600
A few very high numbers from the February edition of Top 12—particularly the beam 14.000 for Charpy and the 13.650 on floor for Boyer—have allowed France to jump ahead of Brazil as well and position itself not far behind Canada.
7. (5) BRAZIL – 167.800
Rebeca Andrade 15.150 14.450 0.000 0.000
Fabiane Brito 14.350 13.600 14.200 13.400
Thais Fidelis 13.633 13.200 14.000 13.900
Luisa Domingues 12.933 12.650 12.933 13.700
Daniele Hypolito 14.100 0.000 13.750 13.300
167.800 43.600 41.250 41.950 41.000
8. (11) GREAT BRITAIN – 167.116
Amy Tinkler 14.700 13.700 13.200 13.500
Latalia Bevan 13.500 12.700 13.800 13.350
Lucy Stanhope 14.700 12.100 12.850 11.750
Georgia-Mae Fenton 14.050 14.533 13.800 12.250
Claudia Fragapane 14.200 13.650 13.250 13.933
167.116 43.600 41.883 40.850 40.783
The respective championships in the home nations have allowed GB to jump up several spots, using the big beam from Fenton and vault from Stanhope at the English Championship and the strong scores from Bevan at the Welsh Championship to get back into the top 8.
9. (8) ROMANIA – 166.780
Carmen Glavan 13.266 11.666 13.600 12.900
Carmen Ghiciuc 12.066 12.833 13.000 12.166
Larisa Iordache 14.800 14.533 15.566 14.266
Denisa Golgota 14.500 12.433 12.900 13.600
Ioana Crisan 13.666 12.600 13.766 13.050
166.780 42.966 39.966 42.932 40.916
No change for Romania now, but if the Romanians don’t compete in March, they will drop off the rankings entirely with only Jurca, Crisan, and the now-retired Ponor having shown competition routines more recently than last September.
10. (9) GERMANY – 166.583

162.799 42.000 42.383 38.700 39.716
Belgium’s participation at the French Top 12 events this year has allowed for some modest gains in scores here and there, padding the margin ahead of the Netherlands and keeping things quite close with Italy.

Multi-gymnast participation in the Melbourne World Cup has allowed Australia to have a little more choice for its team of five and somewhat heartier numbers across the board, not having to rely on all those 10s from worlds anymore—hence the 4-spot improvement in the rankings.
