I don't know. Khorkina did win 1997 Worlds, but Maria Olaru won 1999 Worlds, and the Romanians swept Sydney (thanks in part to the Vault not being set up properly). I also remember 1997 Worlds as being Gina Gogean's going away party and receiving gifts throughout that competition. Now that was a boring gymnast. Funny how boring I felt the Romanians became under Belu and Bitang, and yet in London and at last year's Worlds, I really enjoyed the Romanian efforts.
