She had hoped to contend for a medal at the Sarajevo Olympics after a strong 2nd place finish at that years European Championships (ahead of the Olympic bronze medalist Kira Ivanova who placed only 4th) but mistakes in both the short and long knocked her out of contention. The same thing would happen at the 1984 Word Championships in a weakened field missing Rosalynn Sumners, Tiffany Chin, and Claudia Leistner.
