Summary

The scoring was changed slightly. Previously the team score was made up of the five best all-around scores of their six gymnasts. In 1992 it would be the five best scores on all eight routines (compulsory and optional on four apparatuses), thus all six gymnasts would actually contribute to the team scores. The Soviet Union had won this event in 1952-80 and 1988, missing only the boycott year of 1984. As the Unified Team they continued the streak, but it was a very close competition, with Romania just over ½-point behind, as the United States won the bronze medal. But this was the end of the line, as Russia never won this event again through 2012, which won since 1992 by Romania (2000-04), the USA (1996, 2012), and China (2008).
