Each judge ranked each skater by Ordinal Placement from first through last place.

The Ordinal Placement for each judge was based on Total Points awarded by that judge to the skaters.

The tiebreakers were then 1) Number of Majority Placements, 2) Total Ordinals of Majority, 3) Total Ordinals, 4) Total Points.

The last two World Champions had been [Christine Errath] (GDR-1974) and [Dianne de Leeuw] (NED-1975).

Errath had beaten de Leeuw both years at the Europeans, but de Leeuw won the 1976 Europeans shortly before the Olympics and was the favorite.

Also expected to medal was America’s [Dorothy Hamill], second at the Worlds in both 19, who was coached by [Carlo Fassi], who also coached the 1976 men’s gold medalist, [John Curry].

Thus, if a skater was ranked first by a majority of the judges, that skater was placed first overall, and the process was repeated for each place.

Ties were broken by a Subsequent Majority rule, i.e., if the skaters were ranked for the same position by the same number of judges, Majority Placement for the next higher position for each skater determined who was ranked higher.

Final placement was determined by a Majority Placement rule.

Dianne de Leeuw was also an American from California, but early in her career had difficulty making US international squads.

With a Dutch mother and a father with US/Dutch dual citizenship, she used her Dutch citizenship to compete for the Netherlands.

Hamill also won the free skate, which clinched her the gold medal over de Leeuw, who won silver, Errath moving up to the bronze medal.

The lead after the compulsories was taken by West German [Isabel de Navarre], with Hamill second, de Leeuw third, and Errath fifth.
