Individual All-Around, Women

Date21 – 25 July 1996
StatusOlympic
LocationGeorgia Dome, Atlanta, Georgia
Participants105 from 28 countries

In the individual all-around 36 gymnasts still advanced from the team all-around qualifying, with a max of three gymnasts per nation, but the qualifying scores were now thrown out, and only the final round score was used to determine individual all-around placements and medals. American Shannon Miller, the 1992 silver medalist, had been the 1993-94 World Champion, but injuries caught up with her and she was only 12th at the 1995 Worlds, won by Ukrainian Liliya Podkopaieva. The two were expected to be challenged by Romanian gymnasts, but their top all-around contender, Simona Amânar, was only the fourth highest-scoring Romanian in the team qualifying. However, a new rule allowed the team to substitute any of their gymnasts into the all-around final and Amânar was moved ahead of Alexandra Marinescu.

The final was desparately close, with six gymnasts in sight of gold after three rotations, but Miller, who would finish eighth, was not one of them. Podkopaieva performed on the floor exercise for her last rotation and her score of 9.887 was the highest of the women’s all-around competition on any apparatus and brought her the gold medal. Behind her came the three Romanians, with Gina Gogean winning silver, Amânar bronze, and the 1992 bronze medalist, Lavinia Miloşovici, missing the podium in fourth place.
