Uncle Tim has been crunching the numbers from the Women’s Competition at 2013 Worlds.
You must suspend disbelief and trust that judges got the numbers right in order to look at results statistically.
I’d argue that many routines could score 1.0 more or less.
1. As we saw with the men, execution matters. The top three all-arounders were the best executioners out there.
2. If elegance and execution are synonymous, then, Kyla Ross earned the Longines Prize for Elegance.
3. Those who rag on Simone Biles’s execution, please stop. Compared to her competition, Simone’s execution was quite good. Kyla Ross out-executed Simone by only 0.216, and Simone out-executed Aliya Mustafina by 0.540.
Vanessa Ferrari, Larisa Iordache, Carlotta Ferlito, Yao Jinnan and Noemi Makra are a few others with good Execution.
Noemi Makra from Hungary is stunning. Beautiful toe point. Sharp lines. It’s impossible to watch her and not be reminded of how you felt watching Henrietta Onodi.
1. … Simone Biles has over a 0.500 advantage on the majority of her competitors …
2. … Mad props to Giulia Steingruber, for instance. Since prelims at the European Championships, she has upgraded her difficulty by 0.900. Similarly, Noemi Makra upgraded by 0.600 since prelims at the European Championships.
… Simone Biles was the female equivalent of Kohei Uchimura. Compared to their competitors, both have exceptional difficulty and exceptional execution. …
During #WChAntwerp I tweeted:
Gymnastics is so EASY for Simone Biles. She reminds me of Moustafina in 2010. Or Shawn Johnson in her prime.

CHEERS to Uncle Tim for keeping his 2013 database. The All Around plans to resume keeping their own for the rest of the quadrennial. No doubt there are others out there with similar databases.
