Back in the day, blatantly cheating the Soviets out of titles at the American Cup wasn't enough for the USGF. They invited the Soviets to the US for another round of dubious results at the annual US vs. USSR. The Americans used the event to test their top gymnasts against the up-and-coming Soviet stars.
The 1987 edition featured particularly fascinating results. The scores are just beyond imaginable. Remember that scoring is all relative. Kristie Phillips actually defeated Natalia Laschenova for the All-Around Title. It happened. We can only surmise that the Soviets were paid handily for attending this shit show year after year. While they did win the Team Competition, the scores were much too close. It is a miracle that the Soviets ever attended the '91 Worlds. It took some serious skill for Bela to fix this AA win for Kristie. It is unimaginable what Kristie's floor score alone cost Bela.
While her routine wasn't shown, Margaret Thatcher would like to point out that this is one of the countless competitions that saw Missy Marlowe falling off beam like the '80s Alissa Czisny that she was. Back then, her home club happened to host meets in attempts to boost her performance and home-town scores. We cannot believe the Olympic Trials judges actually allowed her to go to Seoul as anything more than a spectator.
