These are the results of the women's individual all-around competition, one of six events for female competitors in artistic gymnastics at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney. The qualification and final rounds took place on September 17 and 21 at the Sydney SuperDome.
The all-around competition in the discipline of women's artistic gymnastics (WAG) was marred by three separate scandals. The vault apparatus was set incorrectly for more than half of the meet; consequently many gymnasts fell or were injured on the event. The apparatus was adjusted during the third rotation and those gymnasts who had vaulted on the incorrectly set equipment were invited to re-do the event at the end of the competition.
Notably, Svetlana Khorkina, who led champion Andreea Răducan by nearly 0.3 in qualifications, was thrown out of medal contention due to the wrongly measured vault. Additionally, world all-around silver medalist Viktoria Karpenko, who led the competition until the last rotation, was thrown from first place after she stubbed her toe, tripped, and fell out of bounds on her floor exercise. These are testaments to the upset of the entire competition.
The all-around gold medalist Andreea Răducan was stripped of her medal after testing positive for an IOC banned substance during that event. In 2004, after the substance was removed from the banned list, Raducan contested her being stripped of the medal and petitioned to have it returned to her, the IOC did not accept her petition, however.
Finally, though not necessarily a favorite for an all-around medal, Dong Fangxiao was found in 2010 to have been underaged at the Sydney Olympics. Consequently, all of her results from the competition - including her all-around results - were cancelled.
Sixty-four gymnasts competed in the all-around during the qualification round on September 17. The thirty-six highest scoring gymnasts advanced to the final on September 21. Each country was limited to three competitors in the final.
