Babb-Sprague was awarded a gold medal in the women's solo event at the 1992 Summer Olympics after a scoring scandal. In the technical figures routine, a Brazilian judge accidentally entered a score of 8.7 instead of 9.7 for the Canadian swimmer Sylvie Fréchette, allowing Babb-Sprague to win the competition. Fourteen months later, and after several appeals by the Canadian Olympic Committee, Fréchette's medal was upgraded to gold by the International Swimming Federation, while Babb-Sprague was allowed to retain hers.
