The format was the same as in 1976, with the best six gymnasts in the team all-around advancing to the apparatus final, but only two gymnasts from each nation could advance to the finals. The final apparatus score made up of 50% of the all-around total and a final optional program. Four gymnasts were tied after the team qualifying with 19.85 points, but Soviet [Nelli Kim] and Romania’s [Nadia Comăneci] scored 9.95 in the final round to share the gold medal. Behind them East German [Maxi Gnauck] and Kim’s teammate [Nataliya Shaposhnikova] also shared the bronze medal.

Kim was the defending champion on floor and had won the event at the 1978 World Championships. This was her only individual medal in Moskva, after she had won three golds and four medals in 1976, ending her Olympic career with six medals and five golds. Gnauck was the only female gymnast to make the finals on each apparatus in Moskva, ending with four medals and a gold on uneven bars.
