Radomyr Stelmakh of Ukraine finished seventh in the all-around standings when he made his major international debut at European Championships in 2020, but due to the two-per-country limitations, he was not counted in the official rankings.
The 16-year-old made sure his results would count this time around, looking incredible from the moment he stepped out onto the floor until the second he landed his dismount on high bar as the very last competitor in the very last subdivision to sneak in and grab the all-around title with a 79.900, just half a tenth ahead of Italy’s Riccardo Villa, who led the competition after the second subdivision.
Stelmakh did some of his nicest work on floor, hitting a front full to double front, 2½, double full, and triple full for a 13.55, and then continued with solid work on pommels and rings before hitting a strong vault. His parallel bars routine was one of the best I saw, with lovely handstands, smooth transitions, and just a step on the dismount for a 13.6, and though high bar isn’t his strongest, he needed just a 12.4 there, and did just enough to sneak past that with a 12.45, going right down to the wire to upset Villa.
I didn’t think anyone could top Villa, who was my pick for the all-around champion coming into the final as one of the only juniors in the mix to break an 80 this season, which his performance came close to doing here. He was pretty clean throughout, matching Stelmakh on vault and besting him on pommels, rings, and high bar, where his routine included a nice straddle Tkachev, German giants, and a baby step on his full-twisting double layout.
Villa, 17, was also good on both floor and p-bars, but Stelmakh was several tenths ahead on both, giving him the tiniest advantage, though it could have gone either way and I would have been very happy with the results.
Prior to the final subdivision, I wondered if either of Switzerland’s top all-arounders could manage to hit 79 or higher, and Matteo Giubellini made it happen with a 79.500 to win the bronze medal in what ended up being a tough and close field. Despite getting off to a slow start on high bar with just an 11.9, he came back with a vengeance, putting up some of the best routines in the competition on floor (his piked double front was excellent, and he stuck a 2½ to front layout), pommels, and rings, before landing an excellent kaz full to give him a 14.15, exactly the boost he needed going to his final rotation.
Giubellini was so clean and solid in his p-bars set, and he did it after watching the leadoff athlete deal with a scary fall mid-routine. Yet nothing phased the 17-year-old, who put up an great routine to earn a 13.4, pushing him onto the podium with a score that was more than five points higher than what he managed at nationals exactly a month earlier.
Any of the other guys who finished in the top eight – and maybe even a little beyond – had the potential to make it onto the podium had circumstances been only slightly different. Rounding out the field were Danny Crouch of Great Britain in fourth with a 79.150, Daniel Carrión of Spain in fifth with a 79.100, Jan Imhof of Switzerland in sixth with a 78.450, Reuben Ward of Great Britain in seventh with a 78.450, and Sebastian Sponevik of Norway in eighth with a 78.350.
Villa along with teammates Tommaso Brugnami (10th with a 77.850) and Davide Oppizzio (19th with a 76.200) won the team title with a 158.750, edging out the British men by just two tenths, as the team – which included Oakley Banks (12th with a 77.700) alongside Crouch and Ward – put up quite a fight in that final subdivision to earn a 158.550.
Going into the last rotation, the British men would have needed to average above a 13.6 for each score on floor counted into the final total, a score no one had earned on the apparatus at that point in the competition. I didn’t think it was possible, but they happily surprised me with how close they got, bringing in a 13.25 from Banks followed by a 13.75 from Crouch, who did everything he could to earn the top score of the day. Though it was just slightly behind what they’d need for the upset, it was a tremendous fight to the finish, and great to see them earn that hard-won silver.
The Swiss team, led by Giubellini and Imhof along with Mirco Riva, who came in as a replacement athlete and finished 42nd with a 73.700, ended up taking the bronze medal, slightly back from the Brits with a 158.200, though with a healthy margin ahead of fourth-place Spain, which had a 156.850.
Rounding out the top eight were Germany in fifth with a 156.200, Ukraine in sixth with a 155.000, France in seventh with a 154.900, and Austria in eighth with a 154.250, and I have to say, I was more excited for the Austrians than literally anything else that happened today.
For context, Austria is not a known gymnastics nation, and outside of a few guys who can be considered specialists on a few apparatuses, they don’t see a ton of success internationally. The junior team, for example, finished 27th as a team at European Championships back in 2018, and 17th as a team at the European Youth Olympic Festival a year later. But the guys who competed today – Gino Vetter in 11th with a 77.800, Nicolas Ivkic in 23rd with a 75.850, and Alfred Schwaiger in 26th with a 75.450 – performed brilliantly and upset a lot of teams that have typically outscored them, some by a lot, so it was incredible to see that work pay off and to see them rank just tenths behind a team like France and tenths ahead of a team like the Netherlands, which was ninth with a 153.950. It points to a ton of potential in the program, and I hope all three of these guys are able to transition well to the senior level to add to the depth of this growing program.
Lists of the top-ranked all-arounders and teams are below, along with lists of those who qualified into apparatus finals, which take place this Friday and Saturday.

On November 30, FIFA published the final men’s world rankings for 2023. The governing body of soccer has taken the 2024 UEFA EURO qualifiers, 2026 World Cup qualifiers, and friendly fixtures into account to update its list of the top 200 soccer-playing nations on the planet.

Colombia have gained a whopping 24.60 points since the last FIFA rankings in October, pushing their total to 1651.2 points and emerging as the 15th-best national team on the planet.

Portugal first went to Liechtenstein for their 2024 European Championship qualifier on November 16. Goals from Ronaldo and Joao Cancelo propelled them to a 2-0 victory. They clinched another 2-0 victory on November 19, this time at home against Iceland. Owning to the two wins, Portugal gained 5.23 points since October.

#4 Belgium – 1798.46 Points
In fourth place, we have Belgium, who have gained 4.75 points since the October rankings to take their total to 1798.46 points. The Belgian Red Devils’ successes in November have helped them climb up a place and land in fourth.

#3 England – 1800.05 Points
Gareth Southgate’s England have climbed up to third place in FIFA rankings, primarily thanks to Brazil’s abysmal showing in the 2026 World Cup qualifiers. The Three Lions, who now have 1800.05 points, were below their best in the 2024 UEFA EURO qualifiers in November, winning one game and drawing the other.
England failed to impress in their meeting with Malta on November 17 but managed to secure a 2-0 win. However, North Macedonia put up a stronger resistance and held them to a 1-1 draw on November 20.
#2 France – 1845.44 Points
With 1845.44 points to their name, France are the second-highest-ranked team on the current FIFA men’s world rankings. Les Bleus have lost 7.67 points since FIFA’s last rankings in October.

#1 Argentina – 1855.2 Points
World champions Argentina remain at the summit of the FIFA rankings, having put up 1855.2 points on the board. Lionel Messi and Co., however, were not at their best during the November international break. As a result, they have lost 6.09 points since the rankings in October.
La Albiceleste lost 2-0 to Uruguay in the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers on November 16. They, nevertheless, swiftly recovered from the setback, claiming a 1-0 win over arch-rivals Brazil on November 21.
