Summary

As in 1992, eight gymnasts advanced to the final round based on the qualifying scores in the team all-around, with a maximum of two per nation, but the final placements were determined only by the score posted in the final round. Greece’s Ioannis Melissanidis won a silver medal in this event at the 1994 World Championships, but improved in Atlanta to win the gold medal. He was the entire Greek gymnastics team in 1996 and his victory was the first by a Greek Olympic gymnast since 1896. International Gymnast magazine noted that the favorites in this event did more stumbling than tumbling. One exception was China’s Li Xiaoshuang who had a clean routine to win the silver medal, just ahead of Russian Aleksey Nemov. Belarussian Vitaly Shcherbo had won the last three World Championships on floor, but was among the stumblers in the finals here and placed seventh.
