Summary

The heavy favorite was American Tracie Ruiz, winner of the 1982 World Championships and 1983 Pan-American Games. Her competition was expected to come from one of two Canadians, either Sharon Hambrook, runner-up at the 1983 Pan-American Games, or Kelly Kryczka, who was runner-up at the 1982 World Championships. But Hambrook and Kryczka competed at Los Angeles and did not qualify for the finals, as only one swimmer from each nation could advance to the final. Ruiz dominated the competition, easily winning both the preliminary round and the finals. The silver medal went to Carolyn Waldo, teammate of Hambrook and Kryczka, who previously had no significant international record. A few days before the solo final, Ruiz had paired with Candy Costie to win the duet.
