Summary

Japan had won this title at every Olympics from 1960-76, while the Soviet Union won in 1980, in their absence. The 1984 Olympic team event was expected to be a three-way battle between Japan, China, the 1983 World Champions, and the United States. The USA had never won a medal in team gymnastics, save for the unusual 1904 events, and the minimally attended 1932 Olympics. Led by Peter Vidmar and Bart Conner, who placed 1st and 4th individually, the US upset the Chinese, who had to settle for silver, with the Japanese taking bronze.
