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. This event was won by Czechoslovakian Eva Bosáková-Věchtová, with Soviets going 2-4, the silver won by Larysa Latynina and the bronze by Sofiya Muratova. Bosáková-Věchtová’s medal was the only women’s individual gymnastic medal won by a non-Soviet athlete in 1960, as the Soviet Union swept the individual all-around and the other three apparatus finals.
