Silver turns Gold

August 6, 1992: Canadian synchronized swimmer Sylvie Fréchette wins silver in the women’s solo event at the Games of the XXV Olympiad in Barcelona due to a judge’s error. In the figures routine, Fréchette was awarded only an 8.7 (instead of a 9.7) by Brazilian judge Ana Maria Da Silveira, who had accidentally pressed the wrong button when scoring the routine. Fréchette would later be awarded a gold medal during a special ceremony 16 months later in Montréal.
