A few weeks ago I announced I would be creating and releasing a year end WAG AA rankings in December.
I described the rankings as objective because each gymnast’s rank will be determined solely on her international AA results. Which results? Official FIG competitions featuring at least 8 gymnasts in an AA competition. This includes World Cups, Worlds, Euros, etc. I will reveal the exact weight of each competition after the list is released in full. If you think of other international sports rankings featuring multiple major competitions in a year, like tennis, you’ll get a better idea of what I’m trying to do.
My goal is to update the rankings about 4 times a year, but my methodology will be available for all to see, criticize, or adjust for their own system. Transparency!
Right now I’m working out the last kinks in the methodology. I expect the first batches (ie: the lower ranked gymnasts) to be released by Christmas.
