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. The Soviets swept the medals in this event, as they did in three of the four women’s apparatus finals, with the gold surprisingly won by Marharyta Nikolaieva. This was her only individual Olympic medal, but she won quite easily over Sofiya Muratova, with Larysa Latynina winning bronze.
