Date Started: August 15, 2004

Gold: ROU Cătălina Ponor
Silver: ROU Dana Șofronie
Bronze: ESP Patricia Moreno


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. The 2003 World Champion was Brazilian [Daiane dos Santos] who qualified for the final but went out of bounds on her first tumbling pass and stumbled on her second. Her score of 9.375 would place her only fifth. Romanian [Cătălina Ponor] had won a gold medal on beam only a few minutes before, and performed brilliantly on floor to win her second apparatus gold medal. Her score of 9.750 gave her a 0.188 margin over her teammate [Dana Şofronie], the largest margin of victory ever on floor exercise, and the largest at the Olympics in an apparatus event since 1976 when [Nadia Comăneci] won the uneven bars by 0.2 points. Spain’s [Patricia Moreno] won the bronze medal, the first Olympic medal ever won by a Spanish gymnast.
