One of the great injustices in WAG history is that Brandy Johnson doesn’t have an Olympic medal. Brandy’s first stolen medal came in the team competition where the East German team controversially took third place over the Americans. During Event Finals Brandy recorded the second highest score on vault, but carry-over scoring demoted her to 5th place.
The following year at the 1989 World Championships, Brandy Johnson found herself in the exact same situation. Under carry-over scoring Brandy Johnson would have finished fourth in Event Finals despite having the second highest score. But fortunately for Brandy, this was the first competition where carry-over scoring had been abolished. This time the silver medal on vault went to Brandy Johnson.
