This was the first major international competition held since 1913, as gymnastics was not included in the 1919 Inter-Allied Games. Several of the top competitors had won international championships prior to World War I. Based on that, the favorite in the individual competition was probably [Marco Torrès] of France, who had been world all-around champion in 1909 and 1913. However, Torrès lost the combined gold medal to [Giorgio Zampori]. This was the only international combined championship of Zampori’s career, but he was world champion in 1913 at floor exercise, parallel bars, rings, and pommeled horse. He had also won a world championship in 1911 on the parallel bars.
