Simona Amanar, the original silver medalist, was officially awarded the gold medal, and the gymnasts in spots 3 and 4 each moved up as well. ****Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the planned 2020 Tokyo Olympics instead took place in 2021, but retained the official year of 2020. At those Olympics, athletes from Russia competed under the IOC flag and the team name "Russian Olympic Committee," following rulings from the World Anti-Doping Agency and the Court of Arbitration for Sport that temporarily banned Russian athletes from competing under the Russian country name, anthem, flag, and related identifiers.
