Notable Moments

  • USA's Carly Patterson upheld the idea that the gymnast who wins the American Cup at Madison Square Garden the year of the Olympics wins the all-around at the Olympics. She was the third gymnast to do this after Nadia Comaneci in 1976 and Mary Lou Retton in 1984.
  • Evgeny Marchenko's (Patterson's coach) mother passed away shortly before the competition took place. Patterson dedicated her performance to Marchenko's late mother.
