Data Crunch #5.23

Link to: Ranking the Most Dominant Gymnasts of the 2010s

To explain this post: Only individual medals from the World Championships and Olympics are counted. A gold is worth three points, silver is worth two points, and bronze is worth one point. If there is a tie, both gymnasts get the full point total.

Note: Andreea Raducan is in the data twice. One with her official total, another with her stripped Olympic medal included in her final tally.

At the bottom of the list are links to more data using the same points system.
