Summary

In the individual all-around 36 gymnasts still advanced from the team all-around qualifying, with a max of three gymnasts per nation, but the qualifying scores were now thrown out, and only the final round score was used to determine individual all-around placements and medals. Defending gold medalist Vitaly Shcherbo was back, now representing Belarus. He had won the 1993 World Championships but missed the 1994 World meet due to shoulder surgery, and was second at the 1995 Worlds to China’s Li Xiaoshuang. Li considered his biggest threat to be not Shcherbo, but Russian Aleksey Nemov, who had been almost an afterthought in all-around at recent internationals, until he won the 1996 Individual Event World Championships. Li was prescient as in Atlanta, he trailed Nemov after five rotations. Li finished on high bar, while Nemov was on the floor, with Li finishing first. Li scored 9.787 on high bar, which brought him the gold medal, when Nemov scored 9.700 on his floor exercise. Shcherbo was close throughout but ended up with the bronze medal.
