Summary

This event figured on the Olympic Program for the first time in 1912, and would appear only once more, in 1920 at Antwerp. This was the closest of the three team gymnastic competitions at the 1912 Olympics. Three judges placed Norway first, while the Danish judge placed Denmark first, and the Finnish judge placed Finland first. The Swedes and the Italians, who had won the other team events, did not compete in the free system team competition. In 1920, Norway finished second, trailing Denmark, which was the only other team to compete in this style at Antwerp.
