Uneven Bars, 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. The 1983 World Champion was East German Maxi Gnauck, who was also the 1980 gold medalist, but could not compete in Los Angeles. The gold medal in Los Angeles was shared by China’s Ma Yanhong and American Julianne McNamara, who was a specialist on the uneven bars and had been bronze medalist on them at the 1981 Worlds. Ma and McNamara were tied for the lead after the team qualifying, and then both scored perfect 10s in the final round to tie for first with 19.95 points. Individual all-around champion Mary Lou Retton won the bronze, one of her three apparatus medals in 1984, missing out only on the beam. This was also the only apparatus gold medal not won by Romania’s Ecaterina Szabo, who was 13th in team qualifying and did not make the final.
