Reigning world champions are usually the favorites to win the Olympic Gold Medal. Some are heavy favorites, but there are many instances of a heavy favorite not winning the OGM. Which world champion was the biggest favorite at the Olympics but did not win the gold? (Meaning the biggest surprise/biggest shock/biggest disappointment, etc.)
Correction: Should be Michelle Kwan in 2002 (not 1998- she was not the reigning world champion in 1998)
Is it possible to correct this in the poll?
