Summary

The Finnish trio of Heikki Savolainen, Veikko Huhtanen, and Paavo Aaltonen tied for first and all three won gold medals. Huhtanen was the individual all-around champion and left London with three golds and five medals. Aaltonen also won three golds in London, adding a bronze in the individual all-around.

Savolainen won a team gold medal but this was his only individual medal in 1948, although it was but a footnote to a larger Olympic career. He first competed at the Olympics in 1928 at Amsterdam, and would compete at five Olympics, ending his career after Helsinki in 1952. He was almost 41-years-old in London, and would end his Olympic career with nine medals, including six bronze medals. His six bronze medals made him the first Olympian to win that many, and would remain an Olympic best through 2014, although later equalled by four other Olympians.
