To the vote for week 8! I hear you guys about the repetitiveness of the same routines being here week after week and I agree (it’s fun to dive a little deeper), so the theme for this week is routines that haven’t been nominated yet this season.

Best Routine of Week 7 Poll

Congratulations to our week 6 champion, Peng Peng Lee’s bars, which won by a billion votes to zero. It was a close-run thing for the remaining spots, however, as Rachel Slocum’s vault took second, just two votes ahead of Ali Jackson’s floor, which was just three votes ahead of Alex McMurtry’s bars, itself only two votes ahead of Maggie Nichols’ floor.

ROUTINE OF THE WEEK 1st 2nd 3rd
Week 1 Skinner, FX Edney, VT Nichols, UB
Week 2 Ward, VT PP Lee, BB Hambrick, FX
Week 3 Artz, FX Childers, BB Skinner, VT
Week 4 Ross, UB McMurtry, VT PP Lee, UB
Week 5 Gardiner, BB Ward, VT Winston, FX
Week 6 PP Lee, UB Slocum, VT Jackson, FX
Week 7

Now, to the vote for week 7, in which the highest score given out to any gymnast was 9.875. No, I’m totally kidding, everyone got a 10 obviously.

(Heads up, no nominees from the GymQuarters meet this weekend because that meet is behind a paywall and not all of you can watch the routines, in case you’re wondering why Maggie Nichols isn’t four of the nominees. I think she’ll survive.)

Best Routine of Week 6 Poll

Congratulations to our week 5 champion, Maddie Gardiner’s beam, which used a campaign boost from Oregon State to cruise to victory over Britney Ward’s vault in second and Kiana Winston’s floor in third. The race for third was close, with Winston’s floor just edging Price’s bars and Nichols’ beam.

ROUTINE OF THE WEEK 1st 2nd 3rd
Week 1 Skinner, FX Edney, VT Nichols, UB
Week 2 Ward, VT PP Lee, BB Hambrick, FX
Week 3 Artz, FX Childers, BB Skinner, VT
Week 4 Ross, UB McMurtry, VT PP Lee, UB
Week 5 Gardiner, BB Ward, VT Winston, FX
Week 6

To the vote for week 6, a week replete with 10 after 10 after 10. After 10. After 10.

So, welcome to perfect score week! This week, the nominees are all the routines that received either 10.000 or 9.975 over the weekend, and it’s your job to rank them from most-deserving to least-deserving routine by way of your vote.

(There were nine routines that fit this criterion, and since I usually do ten nominees, I added Preston’s vault, which did also technically receive a perfect score of 9.950.)

Best Routine of Week 5 Poll

Congratulations to the week 4 champion, Kyla Ross’s 10.000 on bars, which strolled to victory ahead of Alex McMurtry’s DTY in second and Peng-Peng Lee’s bars in third. I hope you’re pleased with yourselves because Ross falling on bars this week is 100% your fault. Lee joins Skinner as the only two gymnasts to have finished in the top three twice this year, both on two separate events.

ROUTINE OF THE WEEK 1st 2nd 3rd
Week 1 Skinner, FX Edney, VT Nichols, UB
Week 2 Ward, VT PP Lee, BB Hambrick, FX
Week 3 Artz, FX Childers, BB Skinner, VT
Week 4 Ross, UB McMurtry, VT PP Lee, UB
Week 5

It’s time to decide who is a high queen in her blood for week 5!

Best Routine of Week 3 Poll

Congratulations to our week 2 champion, Britney Ward’s vault, which ran to victory ahead of Peng Peng Lee’s beam in second and Myia Hambrick’s floor in third.

ROUTINE OF THE WEEK 1st 2nd 3rd
Week 1 Skinner, FX Edney, VT Nichols, UB
Week 2 Ward, VT Lee, BB Hambrick, FX
Week 3

Who will take the title for week 3, a week peppered with 10s and 9.975s? (Usual disclaimer: If you don’t make videos of full routines available, I can’t nominate them. Even if they got 9.975. Cough cough, Pac-12 Network.)

Best Routine of Week 1 Poll

Poll time!

Each week, I’ll put up the top routines of the previous weekend and let you guys vote on which routine wins the award for best of the week. Deciding the nominees is up to me (mwahahahaha) and is based on 3) score, 2) overall quality, and 1) which ones are easily available online—aka, which ones have been uploaded by our dear NastiaFan101. Because, you know, we need to be able to see them in order to vote for them. So if you want to vote for Elizabeth Price…get those meets to start taking place in the present day. With color televisions. And the iron horse.

Feel free to use the comments for reasoning and/or write-in votes.


1. Kennedi Edney, LSU – Vault


2. Maggie Nichols, Oklahoma – Bars
