Summary

As at every Olympics from 1952-92, save for the 1984 boycott year, the Soviet Union won the gold medal in this event. Their 1972 victory was an easy one over the German Democratic Republic (GDR), who won silver in this event for the first time. Hungary placed third, winning their first medal in the event since 1956, and this was the only women’s gymnastics medal in München not won by the Soviet Union or the GDR.
