Summary

The format was the same as it had been from 1984-2000, with eight gymnasts advancing from the team all-around, but no more than two per nation. The 2003 World Championship title was shared between Bulgaria’s Yordan Yovchev and Greece’s Dimosthenis Tambakos. They were medal favorites, along with Italian Jury Chechi, the 1996 Olympic Champion, and a five-time World Champion (1993-97). Tambakos was first up and scored 9.862, one of the highest scores of the entire 2004 Olympic gymnastics competition. Yovchev’s routine was spectacularly difficult, but his 9.850 placed him just behind Tambakos. Chechi performed last and his score of 9.812 brought him a bronze medal in his fourth Olympics.
