The format was similar to 1964-72, with the best six gymnasts in the team all-around advancing to the apparatus final, with the final apparatus score made up of 50% of the all-around total and a final optional program. However, nations were now limited to only two gymnasts in the finals. [Nikolay Andrianov] was the leader of the Soviet team in 1976 and won the gold medal in this event, just ahead of his teammate, [Aleksandr Dityatin], who would succeed Andrianov as Soviet team leader, and win the gold medal on rings in 1980. Romanian [Dan Grecu] won the bronze medal, the first medal ever won by a Romanian man in Olympic gymnastics. Grecu and Andrianov had shared the gold medal on rings at the 1974 World Championships.
