Summary

The 1926 unofficial World Champion on pommelled horse was Czechoslovak Jan Karafiat, but he did not compete in Amsterdam. The gold medal in 1928 was won by Swiss Hermann Hänggi, with a comfortable win over his teammate, Georges Miez. They had also been 1-2 in the individual all-around, but with Miez winning that gold. Hänggi also added a team gold medal and a bronze on the parallel bars in Amsterdam, in his only Olympic appearance. The bronze medalist was Finland’s Heikki Savolainen, who was competing in his first Olympics and winning his first medal. He would compete at every Olympics through 1952, and win nine Olympic medals, with two golds in 1948. His six career Olympic bronze medals is an all-time record for any sport, shared with four other Olympians, through 2012.
