At her first World Championships in 1991 in Indianapolis, Shannon won two silver medals - in the uneven bars (where she tied Soviet Tatiana Gutsu) and the team competition. The team medal was a first for the Americans, and teammate Zmeskal became the first American to achieve the World All-Around gold medal. Miller placed second in the world during the compulsory portion of the competition to Soviet Svetlana Boguinskaya. In doing so, and in becoming the first American to qualify to all possible event finals at the World Championships, she also showed that while inconsistent at home in the United States, she was among the top gymnasts in the world when she competed in major international competitions. Throughout her career, the trend continued and Miller seemed to shine when the lights were brightest.
