Just how successful was Gina Gogean? Well consider this:

Gina ranks as the 7th best gymnast in my points data. In the same data she ranks 1st amongst 1990s gymnasts. In the 1993-1996 quad alone she accumulated more points than Lilia Podkopayeva who won two AA titles. She even ranks as the 5th most successful gymnast of the 1997-2000 Olympic quad despite having participated in just one major competition.

Gina Gogean is best known for being one of the most effective gymnasts when it came to winning medals. Yet oddly enough, despite winning a gold medal at the World Championships on nine different occasions, Gina never won an Olympic gold medal. It is one of the most bizarre stat lines in WAG history.
