Shannon Miller first made major headlines at the 1991 worlds in Indianapolis. At just 14, she qualified to all four event finals and the all-around, and helped the US team win an historic silver medal. Individually, she tied for the silver on bars, and placed fourth on floor and sixth in the all-around, vault, and balance beam. She left her rookie worlds with two silver medals -- and gave the gymnastics world a preview of what was to come at the Barcelona Olympics.
