Horse Vault, Women

Date30 July – 5 August 1984
StatusOlympic
LocationEdwin W. Pauley Pavilion, Los Angeles, California
Participants65 from 16 countries

There was a slight change in the format of the apparatus events in 1984 as eight gymnasts (previously six) qualified for the final round from the team qualifying, still with a maximum of two gymnasts per team. After finishing second in the individual all-around to American Mary Lou Retton, Romania’s Ecaterina Szabo won three of the four apparatus finals, including the horse vault, in which Retton placed second. Szabo missed out only on the uneven bars, in which she did not make the final. Szabo had been runner-up on the vault at the 1983 World Championships.
