Gold: ROU Monica Roșu
Silver: USA Annia Hatch
Bronze: RUS Anna Pavlova


The format was the same as it had been from 1984-2000, with eight gymnasts advancing from the team all-around, but no more than two per nation. Romania’s [Monica Roşu]’s two vaults in the final received the two highest scores of the competition, giving her the gold medal easily. Roşu had won a bronze in this event at the 2002 World Junior Championships, but had no international medals at the senior level. Second went to American [Annia Hatch]. This was her first Olympics but she had won a bronze medal on vault at the 1996 World Championships, while competing for Cuba. Hatch was qualified individually for the 1996 Olympics but Cuba did not send her, citing funding problems. She then retired, moved to the US, got married, and starting coaching in Connecticut. In 2001 she came out of retirement and became a US citizen, which allowed her to make the 2004 US Olympic team.
