Summary

The format was the now standard of 36 gymnasts advancing to a final round from the team all-around, with no more than three gymnasts allowed per nation. The total score consisted of 50% of the qualifying scores, and the final round score from an optional routine. Romania’s Aurelia Dobre had won the 1987 World Championships, but a knee injury led to three knee operations and she was fortunate to be able to compete in Seoul. The other medalists at the 1987 Worlds were Soviet Yelena Shushunova (silver) and Dobre’s teammate Daniela Silivaş (bronze). With Dobre struggling in Seoul, she would finish sixth, the competition for gold came down to Shushunova versus Silivaş, with the gold coming down to the final rotation on the vault. Shushunova needed a perfect 10 to defeat Silivaş and got it. Silivaş would get some redemption in the apparatus finals when she won three gold medals to Shushunova’s none.
