Can anyone please provide me with all the main medal contenders who are hoping for medals in each discipline? Men's Team Finals, Men's AA, all the Men's apparatus finals. Women's Team Finals, Women's AA, all the Women's apparatus Finals, etc.

I somewhat know the potentials for the USA team and a couple of other world competitors (USA women's team gold medal faves, Simone a gold medal fave everywhere except bars, Suni Lee a medal contender on bars and beam, Jade with Vault & FX, etc. USA men's team hoping for a medal, Malone & Richard hoping for an AA medal, Malone hoping to medal on HB, Richard on FX, Nedoroscik on PH, etc, etc.) ....... but am pretty much in the dark with all the big contenders across the world. Thank you!!
 
Since I can't have a podium of Simone, Rebeca, and Shilese, I am going to hope for Simone, Rebeca, and Melanie.

Not sure if it was Spencer or someone else, but often someone puts together a "top scores of the year" thing so far (with the usual caveats for domestic scoring). I haven't seen that yet, but it might be out there somewhere.

For the Americans, I would add these:
• Lee and Chiles are also contenders for AA medals.
• Chiles could sneak into the mix on vault and floor if either Carey or Biles has issues in qualification. If she makes finals, she could medal.

I think it was The All Around but they are gone.

Lauren at The Gymternet did one for 2023 though.

 
Nice work.

So IIRC there will be 24 women divided into 4 groups of 6 seeded by scores? Or was it random draw?
 
KK’s work with data is absolutely amazing and deserves to be lauded, but her behaviour on Reddit is pretty intolerable. I’ve watched from a distance as she’s pushed one participant after another out of the gymnastics group on there (unfortunately, with complicity from the single moderator). I’m not one of them - as I just don’t vibe with Reddit in general - but I don’t like to see it.

I have nothing but respect for her analysis and contributions generally, and I would never want her to leave the gymternet as she brings so much to it. But she’s someone who would benefit from fair, consistent moderation to restrain her tendency to hector others and just… isn’t getting it there.
