Summary

As with all apparatus formats in 1960, this was a new format, with the all-around competition serving as a qualifying round for the final, with the top six performers advancing to the final round, where they again performed a compulsory and optional exercise to determine final placements. Soviet Armenian Albert Azaryan was the defending gold medalist and had also won the event at the 1958 World Championships. He won again in Rome with a comfortable margin over his teammate, Borys Shakhlin, while the bronze medal was shared by [Takashi Ono] and the surprising Bulgarian Velik Kapsazov. This was the first medal ever won by Bulgaria in Olympic gymnastics. Azaryan’s son, Eduard Azaryan, would compete as a gymnast at the 1980 Olympics.
