Summary

The Swiss won three of the first four places, with Georges Miez winning gold, and only Italy’s Romeo Neri, who won silver, breaking up the medal sweep. Miez also won the individual all-around in Amsterdam, won a gold in the team event, and was second on the pommelled horse. This was Neri’s only medal in Amsterdam but in 1932 he won golds on the parallel bars, and in both the individual and team all-arounds.
