At the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, two events in synchronized swimming were contested, both for women only.

In the solo competition, a judge accidentally entered a score of 8.7 instead of 9.7 for Sylvie Fréchette, costing her first place. After appeals by the Canadian Olympic Committee, her medal was upgraded to a gold. Kristen Babb-Sprague, the beneficiary of the judge's error, was not demoted but retained her own gold medal.[1] This was the last time that solo synchronized swimming was included in the Olympic program.
