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.) I recognize that judging varies from meet to meet, but sometimes, it is evident that the judges are smoking something. Earlier this year, the American judges at the Houston Invitational were higher than the attendees of Woodstock. So, I decided to drop those scores from the UTRS. Sorry.
But before we begin, here's a fun fact:
At the 2014 Tokyo World Cup, Kohei Uchimura's total D score was a 38.6. That's 0.5 harder than his routines at the 2013 World Championships.
