The pommelled horse had 10 competitors from six nations, as no Japanese and only one Italian competed. The gymnasts performed a compulsory and a voluntary exercise, with total points determining the final standings. The event was held separately from the all-around. The comfortable winner was Hungarian [István Pelle], who had the highest score in the compulsory routine. In the voluntary routine, Italian [Omero Bonoli] had the best score, which brought him the silver medal, followed by American [Frank Cumiskey], but Cumiskey was only fifth in the compulsories and just missed the podium in fourth place, as bronze went to his teammate, [Frank Haubold].
