Summary

As in 1960-68, Japan won this gold medal over the Soviet Union, winning even more easily in 1972. Japan won the team all-around gold medal at every Olympics from 1960-76, missing the 1980 Olympics because of the USA-led boycott. The German Democratic Republic (East) was the bronze medalist in Mexico City. The podium for this event was the same every year from 1964-76, as it had been at the 1966 and 1970 World Championships.
