Summary

This event was dominated by Japan and the Soviet Union, as they took the first eight places, and 9 of the top 10. The favorite was Mikhail Voronin of the Soviet Union, the 1966 World Champion, but he was edged out for the gold medal by Japan’s Sawao Kato. Kato would return in 1972 and defend his gold medal. The bronze in Mexico City went to Kato’s teammate, Akinori Nakayama, who also won bronze in the event in 1972. The 1964 Olympic Champion, Yukio Endo, competed in 1968, finishing eighth. Voronin’s wife, Zinaida Voronina, also won the silver medal in the women’s all-around at Mexico City.
