Summary

In the absence of most of the Eastern European countries, the favorite’s role fell to Romania’s Doina Stăiculescu, who had finished seventh at the 1983 World Championships. Canada’s Lori Fung had been the highest-placed non-European or Asian at the 1983 Worlds, but that place was only 23rd. Since that competition, however, Fung had studied in Romania with Stăiculescu. In Los Angeles, the competition was close between the two but Fung upset the Romanian to win a very unexpected gold medal.
