Summary

The Soviet Union won the gold medal in this event at the 1956 Olympics in Melbourne and the 1958 World Championships, with Japan trailing in second both times. But Japan moved ahead in Rome and won the gold medal, defeating the Soviets. It would herald a new world order in men’s gymnastics as the Japanese won the team gold medal at every Olympics from 1960-76, and they did not compete in 1980. Italy won the bronze medal in Rome, slightly ahead of Czechoslovakia, which had been the bronze medalist at the 1958 Worlds.
