The 1994 Commonwealth Games were held in Victoria, in the province of British Columbia in Canada, from 18 August to 28 August 1994.

The XV Commonwealth Games marked South Africa's return to the Commonwealth Games following the apartheid era, and over 30 years (1958) since the country last competed in the Games. It was also Hong Kong's last appearance at the games before the transfer of sovereignty over Hong Kong from Britain to China.

The official mascot of the Games was an anthropomorphic killer whale named "Klee Wyck". "Klee Wyck" – "the laughing one" – was a nickname given to Canadian painter and sculptor Emily Carr by the Ucluelet First Nation.

Format of Competition

The gymnastics competition was carried out in two stages:

  • Competition I - The team competition/qualification round in which all gymnasts, including those who were not part of a team, performed both compulsory and optional exercises. The combined scores of all team members determined the final score of the team. The thirty-six highest scoring gymnasts in the all-around qualified to the individual all-around competition. The six highest scoring gymnasts on each apparatus qualified to the final for that apparatus.
  • Competition II - The individual all-around competition, in which those who qualified from Competition I performed exercises on each apparatus. The final score of each gymnast was composed of half the points earned by that gymnast during Competition I and all of the points earned by her in Competition II.
  • Competition III - The apparatus finals, in which those who qualified during Competition I performed an exercise on the individual apparatus on which she had qualified. The final score of each gymnast determined solely by the score earned by her on the apparatus during this competition.
