Summary

Since 1956, the event had consisted of six-person teams, with the five best all-around scores counting towards the team scores. It was changed slightly in 1992 when the five best scores on each apparatus routine, compulsory and optional, were used for the team scores. In 1996, teams were allowed seven gymnasts, choosing six to compete on each apparatus, with the five best scores on each apparatus counting towards the team score. The Soviet Union no longer existed but three of the former Soviet Republics placed in the top four. Russia won the gold medal, after having bombed out at the 1995 World Championships, although they had a relatively tight competition against China. The Ukraine and Belarus were very close with the Ukraine getting the bronze medal. Japan, which had once been the absolute power in this event, winning the gold medal from 1960-76, placed 10th.
