Had Bonaly won the 93 Worlds would she have had to be taken more seriously as a gold contender at the 94 Olympics. It seems after Nancy and Oksana skated well the judges almost awared them gold and silver already, and Surya had to try and beat Lu's strong performance for the bronze. However if she was reigning World Champion would they have had to consider her a gold contender and left room for her to possibly win. Had she still skated the same way would she also have been placed higher than 3rd in the short (especialy with Baiul's two footed combo) and been held up in the long even with 2 or 3 big mistakes and given/gifted the bronze even over Lu's clean skate due to being reigning World Champion. What would have been different going into and at the 94 Olympics for her. Would she have also won the 94 and/or 95 Worlds if she were already a World Champion.
