At the 1992 Olympics Browning was the reigning 3-time world champion, having won 3 consecutive world titles. IMO that made him a bigger favorite than either Boitano or Orser in 1988, despite his injury earlier in the season. In 1994, Browning was the reigning world champion again, although he had lost the title to Petrenko in 1992. In 1994 he was competing against two Olympic champions- one former and one reigning, so the field was more even in 94. One of these three were expected to win the OGM. Incredibly, none of them even medalled.
